LISTEN: How Atlanta’s public safety center became a national controversy

In this episode of the Politically Georgia podcast, AJC political insider Greg Bluestein is joined by DeKalb County beat reporter Tyler Estep to discuss how Atlanta’s proposed public safety center has become a national controversy.

Our hosts detail how opposition to the training complex has drawn an array of opponents in tense protests that have, at times, turned violent, destructive and even deadly.
