Right. I believe that family was responsible for a majority of the (child) murders. The main culprit is supposedly dead but there’s still 3 or 4 brothers left that participated. This case needs to be reopened.
Beyond that, I believe there were white extremist elements in the Atlanta Police Department who resented Maynard Jackson's rise and the degree to which Black people were gaining power in the city. I read that Maynard emphasized hiring a lot of Black cops after he took office, which likely pissed off a lot of extremist cacs in the APD So, I believe some of those people provided cover for the Sanders brothers.
I doubt we'll ever know the complete truth in that case. Which is sad, as the families never got real justice or closure.
