Atlanta, GA — Three ‘peaceful’ protestors are in jail today after they were arrested on Thursday for trying to firebomb police cars with Molotov Cocktails.
Police said that the vandals tracked down the officers at their homes and tried to destroy their cars. Thankfully, the Molotov cocktails didn’t break when they hit the cars, but bounced to the ground and started small fires. Those fires were quickly put out.

Police reported that between 10:00 and midnight on Thursday night — hours after a peaceful rally was supposed to have ended — they received a 911 call to the Gwinnett County Police department saying that somebody had tried to light a police car on fire.
When they arrived, the small fire was already extinguished.
Later in the evening, another call came in: a police car in Lawrenceville had been targeted the exact same way. But this time, there was a description of the car: a dark colored sedan.
Again, the police car was dented and a fire was burning beside it, but the firebomb hadn’t exploded.
Thanks to eyewitnesses and the description of the car, police were able to narrow in on three suspects.
They later arrested Ebuka Chike-Morah, 21, Alvin Joseph, 21, and Lakaila Mack, 20, who all face multiple charges.
News Station Had Interviewed Suspect Horus Earlier
Coincidentally, one spoke to one of the suspects during a protest in Gwinnett County less than a week earlier.
“I’m just trying to get the message across,” Chike-Morah said during the protest outside Sugarloaf Mills Mall. “We’re going to continue walking until we don’t feel like walking no more.”
In the most ironic thing we’ve seen all week, Ebuka Chike-Morah was carrying this sign, which read, “I’m not a threat.”
Chike-Morah told Channel 2 Action News that he wanted to peacefully protest and go home, but a few days later he had other plans.
“They unloaded the bus trying to catch us but I’m not getting got. I can speak for myself. I don’t know what they got going on. I’m just trying to go home and go to work tomorrow,” Chike-Morah said.
All the officers are unharmed. The suspects face multiple charges each. They were denied bail at a court appearance on Friday.
