Reports are coming in that Officers assigned to at least three of Atlanta’s six zones have walked off in protest after the DA’s decision to file felony murder charges against Atlanta PD Officer Garrett Rolfe in the death of Rayshard Brooks.
The Atlanta Police Department, however, has denied the reports, saying “suggestions that multiple officers from each zone had walked off the job” were “inaccurate.”The APD insisted it has “enough resources to maintain operations and remain able to respond to incidents throughout the city,” while also admitting that it has been overwhelmed with calls.
Earlier suggestions that multiple officers from each zone had walked off the job were inaccurate. The department is experiencing a higher than usual number of call outs with the incoming shift. We have enough resources to maintain operations & remain able to respond to incidents.— Atlanta Police Department (@Atlanta_Police) June 18, 2020
Steve Deace from BlazeTV says that he has received an email claiming otherwise.
Just got this email from an Atlanta police officer:— Steve Deace (@SteveDeaceShow) June 17, 2020
"Atlanta police officers are refusing to answer the radio and walking off of the job. The county can go screw themselves. If you want a society without police we’ll give you one. Let it burn!"
After 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks was found sleeping in a Wendy’s parking lot and failed a sobriety test, he resisted arrest. The ensuing altercation saw him grabbing hold of Brosnan’s taser and firing it in the direction of the arresting officer. In response, Rolfe fired his taser and then his weapon towards Brooks, fatally shooting him.
This is a developing story…
