Atlanta police officer Tommy LeFever explained why he challenged Atlanta gym owner Jim Chambers, who banned cops from his facility, to a boxing match.
Since he opened the gym, Chambers has always had a â€œno copsâ€ or military personnel policy.
â€œThis is a man who refers to police officers as â€˜modern day slave catchers,â€™ he refers to us as â€˜the henchmen of the empireâ€™ and an â€˜occupying force,â€™â€ LeFever told FOX Businessâ€™ Liz MacDonald of â€œRisk & Reward.â€
LeFever believes that if Chambers accepts the fight, they will be one step closer to overcoming their differences.
â€œBeing that myself and Mr.Chambers are never going to walk away from a debate seeing eye to eye. I kind of want to prove that it doesnâ€™t matter what he believes and it doesnâ€™t matter what I believe, we can come together, we can punch each other in the face a couple of times and when all is said and done, I can hug the guy,â€ he said.
