Black Lives Matter Atlanta Boycotts Major Retailers Because: Police Brutality

Atlanta, Georgia – Black Lives Matter Atlanta has started the #NotOneMoreDime protest in response to the most recent officer-involved shootings of Keith Lamont Scott and Terence Crutcher.

The leader of Black Lives Matter Atlanta, Tyree “Sir Maejor” (Tyree Conyers-Page), known for being a police impersonator, stated that he and other Black Lives Matter Atlanta followers are boycotting big businesses, including Lenox Mall and Peachtree Center, in a stand against police brutality. It’s not clear what Black Lives Matter thinks businesses in Atlanta have to do with the officer-involved shootings of black men in Tulsa and Charlotte.

Tyree is well known to Atlanta PD for his criminal history, if not his “activism.” In late 2014, Atlanta Police found Tyree, a self proclaimed cop hater, with a female handcuffed outside a busy gas station. He was wearing a uniform that looked like an Atlanta PD uniform, had a Glock .45 pistol, and full duty belt. In another incident, on October 14, 2015, he was observed at the MARTA Five Points station, wearing a bulletproof vest with a full duty belt. He also had one loaded Glock .45, two additional loaded magazines, two pairs of handcuffs, OC spray, one baton, a Taser with additional cartridge, and a makeshift ID card designating his duties as a fugitive apprehension officer.

It is clear that Tyree is lacking even the basic sense that God gave rocks, so it’s not really a surprise that he’s urging his Black Lives Matter Atlanta followers to boycott something unrelated to police. According to Tyree, corporate America’s silence on the issue of police brutality is an “endorsement to the violence” against black people. How this makes sense, I have no idea.  They also say, “Each silent protester will have duct tape on their mouth with keywords such as “Freddie Gray” “Black Lives Matter” “White Privilege” “AllLivesMatter?” “White Silence” etc.,”

Tyree’s protest did not start off as well as he thought this past Saturday afternoon with only a turn out of approximately 25 protesters. Due to the lack of support, Tyree and his followers resorted to a common Black Lives Matter attention grabbing tactic; blocking traffic:

As the night went on, more and more agitators heard about the traffic blockage, and they came to join-in. Here, you can see one Black Lives Matter Atlanta protester clearly harassing police:
