GTPD Officer Recovery

This weekend, Georgia Tech suffered the tragic suicide of one of its students, fourth-year Scout Schultz. Following Scout’s death, a Candlelight Vigil was scheduled for Monday night; however, this vigil turned violent with the arrival of violent protestors, many of whom are not even currently attending Georgia Tech. Two GTPD officers were injured in the ensuing melees and a GTPD cruiser was torched. The conditions of the officers are unknown at this time.

We at the Marksmanship Club at Georgia Tech have always worked closely with GTPD to ensure that we follow the strictest procedures on firearm safety; we have also known them as acquaintances and even friends. They are a strong family, and we are certain that they will get through this; however, as we at the Marksmanship Club and we as members of the Georgia Tech Student Body feel that they deserve some extra support following tonight’s horrific events. GTPD has always been kind to students, treating us far more as equals than subjects; many of them are Georgia Tech graduates themselves. They constantly take steps to ensure that we’re safe, reach out to us, and make concrete efforts to get to know students on a personal level. Now, it’s our turn to give back to them.

All proceeds from this GoFundMe will be used to assist the Georgia Tech Police Department and the affected officers.
