Atlanta Mayoral Candidate Who Voted to Defund Police Carjacked for His Mercedes in Broad Daylight

May 27th

"Hello, Police?"

In a classic case of "fate loves irony," Atlanta council member and mayoral candidate Antonio Brown, who earlier this year voted to strip $73 million from the Atlanta police budget, just had his white Mercedes carjacked ... at 12:30 in the afternoon ... by a bunch of children ... who fought him off and sped away in his whip.

No this is not satire:

City Council Member Antonio Brown had just gotten out of his white Mercedes coupe to speak to fellow community leader Ben Norman in northwest Atlanta's Dixie Hills community Wednesday when he spotted four or five kids — the youngest only 6 or 7, WAGA-TV reported.

The children were walking around a store — and within seconds were inside Brown's car, he said.

"One kid was in the driver's seat," Brown told the outlet. "Ben attempted to open the door to get him out of the car. He fought with Ben. I then engaged and tried to get him out of the car. The three other kids were trying to figure out how to get in the car or stay out of the car. He started to hit on the gas. Ben let go."

Get ready though, because here comes the single best line of the report...

Brown said he filed a report with the Atlanta Police Department.
