By Steve Visser The Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionThe Atlanta Citizens Review Board has recommended reprimands for an Atlanta police major, four sergeants and a lieutenant who supervised the units that raided the Atlanta Eagle, a gay club in Midtown, in 2009.

The review board, which was created to investigate complaints of police misconduct and recommend discipline, focused on the failure of supervisors after previously upholding citizen complaints against individual officers, who reputedly used anti-gay slurs and unlawfully detained patrons. The raid by the APD Red Dog drug unit and the APD vice unit prompted a lawsuit the city agreed to settle for more than $1 million.

The board recommended  reprimands and retraining in constitutional principles prohibiting unlawful search for Maj. Debra Williams, Sgts. William Adams, K. Collier, Willie Adams, John Brock and Lt. Tony Crawford said Cristina Beamud, the board executive director.
