Buckhead is part of the city of Atlanta, Georgia but might be for much longer.
People in Buckhead are tired of the rising crime in Atlanta and the fact that the city is tying the hands of the police.
Now they want to separate from the city and form their own town. Who can blame them?

Atlanta May Be Headed for a Final Divorce as Communities Nationwide Seek to Redraw the Lines
Buckhead, a portion of Atlanta, Georgia, is looking to break free from the rest of a city in rapid decline. After decades of increased safety that started ahead of the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, it took one woman and a single summer to ruin it. Not even New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio can beat Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ time for running a city into the ground. It took de Blasio two terms. Bottoms has been so spectacular she’s announced she won’t even run for a second one.
As a result of her rank incompetence, Buckhead, a wealthier section of Atlanta with about 100,000 residents, has decided to control its own destiny. There are two bills in the state legislature to affect the split, and the group has raised the required amount of money to move forward. Buckhead is petitioning to become wholly independent and establish and enlarge their own police force under different leadership.
Tucker Carlson interviewed Bill White, the leader of the movement to create an independent Buckhead. White told Tucker that residents feel as if they are living in a war zone. They are filing for divorce, according to White, and it will be final. He expects there will be an initiative on the ballot in 2022. If it is successful, Atlanta will lose at least 20% of its tax base.
Watch one of the leaders of this effort talking about the situation on FOX News:
A similar situation is happening in Oregon, where multiple counties are trying to leave the state and become part of Idaho.
Expect to see more of this. People are fed up.
