Comment: for the record

for the record

I haven't seen the video yet but I used to live in Sandy Springs. For decades the white, well-off, northern parts of "Atlanta" have wanted to secede, for racial and economic reasons.

Yes things DID get better in Sandy Springs after it separated from Atlanta,

but it also *created new taxes*

and on paper I'm sure it looked better than before ,simply due to that fact that Sandy Springs is filled with some of the biggest, priciest estates in the country and doesn't have to contend the "dead weight" of ATL anymore.

Also now that they have a new government to fund so watch out for Sandy Springs police. They stay staked out on 285 where the speed limit is 55 (lol!) and the flow of traffic, aside from rush our, is never below 70 mph.
