Mayor Ivan ALLEN
Orry HALL
ATLANTA, GEORGIA

Drar Mayor ALLEN:

BE HAS BEEN NOTED_BY THE PUBLIC, THE PRESIDENT AND
Vree Prestpent or THE Unrren STATES,WHERE YOU DID A COUR=
ACROUS THING IN GOING AMONG YOUR SUBJECTS DURING A RECENT
PUBLIC DISORDER.

You ARE TO BE COMMENDED FOR THIS BIT OF GALLANTRY
ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY, AND I DO NOT FEEL AS
SOME HAVE IMPLIED THIS ACT WAS POLITICALLY MOTIVATED.
HONESTLY FEEL THAT YOU ARE ACTING IN THE BEST INTEREST
OF ALL CONCERNED. BuT THERE IS ONE THING I AM UNABLE
TO UNDERSTAND AND THAT ITS WHY YOU WOULD PUSSY FOOT ARO=
UND WITH THIS GROUPE OF PEOPLE WHEN YOU _MUST REALIZE
NO AMOUNT OF TALKING WILL DO ANY GOOD. PERHAPS I AM WRONG┬╗,
nur I AM OF THE OPINION THE ONLY THING THESE PEOPLE WILL
UNDERSTAND IS FORCE.

ALSO IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT A $10,000 REWARD
HAS BEEN OFFERED FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE CAPTURE
OF PERSONS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHOOTING OF A Necro Boy.
Trr1s I FEEL IS GOOD, BUT WOULD THE SAME THING HAVE HAPPENED
IF A WHITE BOY HAD BEEN SHOT, ALSO ONE OF THE ATLANTA
POLICEMAN WAS SHOT, BUT VERY LITTLE HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT
prHIS, Wuy?

Mre Mayor, I AM ALL FOR LAW AND ORDER AND I DO Nor
BELIEVE IN HATE GROUPS, BUT I DO BELIEVE A PERSON BLACK
OR WHITE SHOULD EARN THE RIGHT TO BE RESPECTED. I DO Nor
BELIEVE IN FREE HANDOUTS LIKE THE POVERTY PROGRAM, WEL=
FARE, ETC. EXCEPT IN SPECIAL CASES. AND LIKE MANY OTHER
prophr, I FEEL THE FroeRAL COVERNMENT HAS ENCOURAGED
VIOLENCE AND ANARCHY FOR SINSTER PURPOSES BY REMANING
stLent, Turs I KNOW YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OVER AND I AM
SURE YOU WANT NO PART OF THIS SINSTER PLAN, IF PLAN IT
IS

RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED,

aril, Cplerldcef
