***UPDATE***

It looks like the mayor of Atlanta is starting to get worried about all the cops that are not showing up for work. It’s called the “Blue Flu,” and they’re protesting because one of their own was just charged with felony murder and is facing the death penalty for doing his job.

Mayor Keisha Bottoms is so desperate to get cops to show up that she’s trying to remind them that she got them a raise.

“Gee, sorry about that death penalty charge, but remember that great raise I got you?”

I don’t think that’s gonna cut it, lady.

From CNN

Hours after a fired police officer was charged with felony murder for fatally shooting a man in the back, Atlanta police officers are not responding to calls in three of the department’s six zones, multiple sources within the Atlanta Police Department said.

Though the department denied that was the case, a police union director backed CNN’s sources’ accounts and said that, in some instances, officers were refusing to leave their precincts unless a fellow police officer required backup. He expects more officers to miss work Thursday, he said.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Wednesday afternoon announced 11 charges against Garrett Rolfe, who was fired after he shot Rayshard Brooks twice in the back Friday night. A third shot hit a car with three people inside.

The Fulton County DA’s office has decided to press charges against Officer Rolfe for shooting and killing Mr. Rayshardf Brooks, a man who fought police, stole a taser, and then tried to shoot the officer with it.

The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office has decided to file charges in the deadly shooting of Rayshard Brooks.

At a Wednesday afternoon press conference, Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard announced that former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe is facing 11 charges, including felony murder, multiple counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, first-degree criminal damage to property, and two counts of violating of his oath as a public officer.

Officer Devin Brosnan has been charged with a count of aggravated assault and two counts of violating his oath of office. He is now cooperating with the District Attorney’s Office as a witness. Howard said it may be the first time ever an Atlanta police officer has testified against a fellow officer in the same department, noting that he was “almost shocked” Brosnan agreed to do so.

If convicted, Rolfe could be sentenced to either life in prison without parole or the death penalty.

The DA is facing major blowback and his move is being called “political,” since he’s now locked in a close election battle.

We’re seeing reports online of Atlanta police officers now walking off the job. I can’t confirm or deny these reports, but I can say some of them are coming from very credible LEO sources.

I will share with you what I have found online:

If these stories are true, and again, two of those sources – Steve Deace and Rob O’Donnell are credible LEO, then there is about to be a massive push-back by police officers, and likely the American people as well.

It’s one thing to want to see changes made after Mr. Floyd was killed in such a horrific way, but now to be uplifting every bad guy and giving cops a “death sentence” is way, way, WAY too much.

ENOUGH!
