    Rumors of Atlanta police walking off job

    I have heard from multiple leo friends that 4 of the 6 Atlanta police zones have had mass walkouts. Any locals who can confirm?

    I don't much care for the cops, but I hope it's true. All this defunding and disbanding talk, I hope more go on strike, refuse to answer calls, show up to any sort of security work totally unarmed. Let the politicians and people that want all that nonsense experience the consequences.
    Time is the only real currency

      Atlanta is going to get real hot if it's true.

        30 days of no cops would certainly sort some shit out in this country. Most of the people wanting to defund police are only breathing because of the police.

          I've got plenty of rounds, so I hope it becomes a national thing. Norm is right - 30 days with minimal staff would open some eyes in a big hurry

            They took an oath so if they walked out I hope they never work again.

              Not so cut and simple. The DA also took an office, and is making it clear he's out to get cops. Would you stay on the job knowing they're out to get you, and you can not longer do your job right for fear of being on trial for murder and getting tossed under the bus at the first chance?

              I don't blame them one bit. Go police a town that appreciates you, or at least lets you keep your basic right of self defense.

                No cops nationwide for 30 days. Let's do it and see how it pans out.

                  Good for them, any cop working in a big city like that with a high African American population needs to quit or transfer to a new area ASAP.

                    They didn't take an oath to work. They took an oath to uphold the law. They won't be out robbing old ladies, they're just staying home. No problem with the oath at all.

                      I’m assuming this is due to the charges against the cop that shot the POS that pointed the taser at him? Is that what you mean by self defense? Because you have zero legal recourse if a cop points a taser at you, and pretty much none if a cop uses it on you. So why is it self defense for him if there’s a threat that he might get tased?

                      i might be making a big jump to conclusions about what you were referring to on self defense.

                        Chicago Mayor declared war on CPD while the riots were still happening for no specified reason. Cops believe she is trying to bait them into some sort of blue flu or work disruption because if they do that she can decertify the union and tear up the existing contract. Word is Chicago cops would be totally screwed if that happened. I wonder if Atlanta cops are caught in a similar situation.

                          Yup, also a way to get out of the pensions. I hate chicago and illinois politics, but I also hate the public sector unions and the pension crises that I'll have to pay for though. My brains locking up!!!

                            This is what they signed up for. They know there are risks everyday. If they want to stay home because their feelings are hurt, fuck ‘em. You know who else feels under appreciated at work? Everyone. I hope those pussies never wear a badge again.

                              Perhaps because the cop has a loaded gun on him, and if tased and rendered unable to secure his weapon, the person might take said gun and use it on him or someone else?
