Atlanta man celebrates his birthday in an unforgettable way
On February 26, 2022, Atlanta native Jimmy J. Hill turned 60 years old. Grateful to see this milestone year, he knew that he wanted to celebrate in epic fashion. After all, he had survived: the mean streets of "Little Vietnam" (aka East Lake Meadows); multiple prison terms; witnessing his mother endure police brutality AND the loss of two sons. By all accounts, he had every right to wish for an unforgettable birthday celebration. So, he purposed in his heart that he would have the biggest celebration ever. He reached out to some friends and began to plan- but not in the way you might think. Instead of planning for cake and balloons and a DJ, Jimmy J. Hill was planning a rally in protest of police brutality. In particular, he was planning a rally to honor and lift up the names of young men whose lives were taken at the hands of police officers in Georgia.
What Happened to Jimmy Atchison??
George Floyd. The name is now synonymous with police brutality and the senseless killing of unarmed black men. His murder was recorded on video, for the world to see after police showed up on the scene to investigate a rather minor alleged crime. This unjust abuse of power set off nationwide protests. Just imagine if there was no video or police body cam footage. Would the average citizen have reacted in the same manner? Now, this is what brings us to the case of Jimmy Atchison. If there was video of the murder, then his name might have been what people would associate with police brutality- in Atlanta and around the country.
