According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the riots in Atlanta, Georgia have called damage to the College Football Hall of Fame in downtown Atlanta. In addition, these out of control individuals also caused damage to the Chick-fil-A next to the Hall of Fame.
It has turned from peaceful protests to riots around the country following the death of George Floyd. Derek Chauvin — who is allegedly responsible for Floyd’s death — was charged with murder and manslaughter on Friday.
People have to remember that he — along with the other officers, who were fired on Tuesday — are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Chauvin has been the only officer charged at this time, but it appears charges against the other three may happen in the coming days.
There were rioters that were seen looting the Hall of Fame. It is not known what they might have taken from the facility.
Officers were able to arrive, according to the story, to help protect the history at the building, which opened in 2014 after being built for $68 million. The College Football Hall of Fame relocated to Atlanta after previously being in South Bend, Ind.
These rioters threw trash cans and objects at the glass at the Hall of Fame. Rioters also burned a police car that belonged to the Georgia Tech Police Department near the Hall of Fame, according to the post.
The College Football Hall of Fame is devoted to college football’s history. It was founded in 1951 to immortalize the players and coach of college football.
