Mayor and Former BLM Organizer Arrested for Breaking into Home

Former Black Lives Matter (BLM) organizer and mayor of a city in Georgia were arrested over the weekend after allegedly breaking into a home before being confronted by an armed homeowner.

Khalid Kamau, who is the mayor of South Fulton and BLM organizer, was arrested and faces charges of criminal trespass and first-degree burglary after entering the property, WSB-TV reports.

The homeowner told police he saw walking up the driveway to a residence.

The property owner then told Kamau to “stay put” before repeating the command while on the phone to police.

The homeowner said the man he was holding at gunpoint then said, “Do you know who the f*** I am? I’m the mayor, and I’ll wait for my police to get here and see what happens then.”

According to the police report, the mayor explained that he had intended to visit a dog park but ended up pausing to go into the house, which he referred to as his dream home.

The mayor was aware that he was trespassing on the property, the report states.

Kamau claims he was leaving the property when confronted at gunpoint, with the owner saying, “No motherf***er, you stay right there.”

Kamau said the owner cocked his handgun and said, “If you take another step, I’m going to shoot you.” He then claimed he said, “Are you going to shoot me while I’m walking away?”

He then identified who he was and offered an apology.

He is referred to on the city’s website as “America’s first #BlackLivesMatter organizer elected to public office” and a “Southern, Black, Christian Socialist.”

“I just wanted to see the house,” he said. “I do apologize to the owners. I thought it was abandoned,” he added.

Kamau offered an apology.

“I apologize for the negative attention that this is brought to our city,” he said. “I hope that the spotlight on our city right now will highlight some of the inequities that have been happening.”

He was released on $11,000 bond, WSB reported

“I do want to thank South Fulton Police and the staff and officers at Rice Street for courteous and professional service throughout the day today,” Kamau said.

The mayor must now go through a mental health evaluation due to the “circumstances of the warrant,” WXIA-TV reported.
