UNION CITY, Ga -- The mother of a Union City teenager, killed by a police officer in 2011, demanded that the City's Chief of Police be fired, among other demands. New evidence and testimony has prompted the Fulton County District Attorney and the GBI to re-open her son's case.
Freda Waiters has been fighting for her son for three-and-a-half years, and released a lot of her built-up frustration in front of the Union City Council. She demanding a Federal investigation and the arrest of every police officer who played a role in what she called "a cover-up of her sons' murder."
"I want the resignation of your chief of police," Waiters told officials. Her demands were not simple, but forceful. "And the way his murder was covered, like he was just an animal on the street, that's not acceptable."
