ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Atlanta business owners are preparing for the protest Friday evening after the release of the video of Tyre Nichols being beaten by five Memphis police officers.

They are afraid of a repeat of last weekend’s “protest-turned-riot” where broken windows are still boarded up.

Georgia is under a state of emergency with a thousand soldiers from the Georgia National Guard on standby who will have the power to arrest people.
