Atlanta police training center referendum organizers submit 116,000 signatures | Ap | #datingscams | #russianliovescams | #lovescams

Organizers of an effort to get the training center on the ballot via referendum were prepared to officially submit a petition with more than 116,000 signatures in hopes of forcing a public vote on the project.
