Pitman pens op-ed for BDN about Georgia’s ‘Cop City’

Brian Pitman, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Maine and a member of the Maine Chapter of the Scholars Strategy Network, wrote an opinion piece for the Bangor Daily News about why Mainers should care about Georgia’s “Cop City,” a proposed $90 million training ground for police and firefighters that includes a mock city within 85 acres of the forest. “Organizations, such as the Atlanta Solidarity Fund and Community Movement Builders have been at the front of the resistance, raising alarm that the ramifications of ‘Cop City,’ if built, stretch far beyond Atlanta,” Pitman wrote.
