‘Stop Cop City’ petition campaign in limbo after signatures presented to Atlanta officials

ATLANTA (AP) — Officials from the City of Atlanta have refused to verify tens of thousands of signatures submitted by activists who have been trying for two years to stop the construction of a police and firefighter training center. The city clerk’s office on Monday cited a recent court order that it said bars it from processing the paperwork.
