On Dec. 17, 2008, L5P resident KYLE KEYSER
was lying face down in a North Avenue Pizza Hut parking lot, a gun aimed at his head. While picking up takeout as a favor for a friend, he found himself the victim of a mugging. Thanks to chance, the video producers life was spared. But Keyser didnt sit on his hands, and after the January 2009 murder of bartender John Henderson, he and a few friends launched Atlantans Together Against Crime, a nonprofit citizens group that quickly attracted more than 6,700 members on Facebook and became the loudest voice to raise awareness about the citys public safety problem. On Sept. 2, he announced his candidacy for Atlanta mayor. Whether brandishing a bullhorn at monthly rallies around the city or posing questions to the Atlanta Police Departments top brass at press conferences, Keysers been the voice that the city too busy to act sorely needed. www.atlantanstogether.org, www.kyle.tv.
