On Tuesday night, The “Real Strategy For Change” town hall meeting was held to discuss police brutality in the black community in Atlanta. David Banner voiced his opinion on the matter and suggested that police should suffer financial or physical consequences for their behavior. Lyfe Jennings responded to Banner’s comment strongly disagreeing which caused a heated argument. Jennings’s stated, “what we going through is crazy but we ain’t gonna create more of it by telling people to bring guns against the police. That’s stupid!”
At that point, Tyrese intervened to bring down the tension. Soon after both Banner and Jennings shook hands. Some of the guest speakers included daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Bernice King, Young Jeezy, 2 Chainz, DC Young Fly, ET from Durtty Boyz, Cariol Horne, and Rev. C.T. Vivian. The meeting was hosted by Ricky Smiley. According to WSB-TV reports, residents found the meeting and discussion to be beneficial to the community.
