Police should take action against 24 officers for improperly detaining dozens of patrons at the Atlanta Eagle gay bar in a 2009 raid, a citizen oversight panel said tonight.

An Atlanta City Council committee today subpoenaed 18 police officers to talk to citizen overseers looking into the department’s Sept. 10 raid on the Atlanta Eagle gay bar.
