An Atlanta Police Officer has been fired after she was accused of taking $500 cash from the victim of a fatal shooting on June 19. Richburg was fired on July 8.

On the day of the fatal shooting officers responded to the scene where they found Jamel Harris shot twice in the head. First responders took Harris to the hospital, but he later died. A 43-year-old civilian man was arrested for the homicide.

At some point Richburg allegedly stole $500 cash from the victim’s pocket, CBS 46 News reports. An administrative investigation was not able to determine what happened to the cash.

Atlanta police say:

“Officer Richburg did not properly account for the money according to the department’s policies and procedures.”

Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields terminated the employment of Richburg following the administrative investigation.

Shields released a statement saying:

“Officer integrity goes to the heart of what we do here every single day. It’s imperative the public have trust in our word and our actions. It’s extremely disappointing to see the victim of a fatal shooting be victimized twice by the actions of one of our officers.”

The Fulton County District Attorney’s office is expected to prosecute Richburg.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
