Police in, then out, as Georgia hate crimes bill moves ahead

Police in, then out, as Georgia hate crimes bill moves aheadIn an abrupt turn, Republicans in the Georgia Senate removed protections for police from hate crimes legislation on Monday night, just days after adding them in over the objection of civil rights groups and Democrats. First responders were removed as a protected class from the bill by the Senate Rules Committee after lawmakers said they struck a deal between parties. Calls for Georgia to remove itself from the list of four U.S. states without a hate crimes law have grown following the death of Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man pursued and fatally shot near Brunswick, Georgia, in February.
