I guess my comment about the cops walking off on the other thread got read by the APD


Let the purge begin. My father was an Atlanta policeman for 30 years. I remember having a discussion with him about unions. I recall him saying he didn't care for the union philosophically but he had made a comment about how the unions protects the officers from the political issues. I can see his point with this incident.

It is clear Paul Howard is playing politics imho charging the officers with 11 counts.

I don't know how anyone would work as a cop in this environment. Screw it. Let the animals run the zoo.

Completely align myself with his opinion. I don’t like unions, primarily because they bend over backward to protect guys that shouldn’t be cops.

But they do good work when it comes to not letting the city or county walk all over cops.

Now I know why Walking Dead took place in Atlanta.
They always show us a preview of what's to come....

Was not Atlanta proper .
It was Cobb County in the Kennesaw area and Tyler Perry's studio (old Fort McPherson)
And , on my way to work back then , I got to see some filming.
Of late , it has been filmed in the sleepy little town of Senoia , Ga. (pop . just over 3000)

Sorry , I dislike inaccurate statements.

Here are some of the comments on CBS46 FB page


Hang tough APD and walk away from a city that doesn't care for your well being. Kudos to the surrounding agencies for refusing to provide assistance.





They are getting what they wanted. Now they are begging other police to come in and they are refusing.

I don't like unions and most of the time, I think they've outlived their usefulness almost completely, but this is the sort of environment where they do play a role.

And the worst thing is, I think one of the key aspects of police reform would be union reform too. There are too many protections for bad cops, but right now, the cops also need a strong entity standing between them and politics.

F*ck the citizens?
Way to go. Any that do that probably shouldn't be cops. I doubt it's as rumor says.

If the people getting robbed know the police are not going to come, they will shoot the robbers and they will not just wound them, a wounded robber might get revenge later.

Well, I am glad I watched all the wild west shows when I was young now.

In addition to Senoia, they also filmed around metro Atlanta, including in the city itself, in some episodes/seasons.

Sorry, I also dislike inaccurate statements.

"Pigs in a blanket; fry 'em like bacon!"

But we should all support BLM.

I don't blame the cops at all, with the way that this is unfolding, if I was a cop, I would just turn in my badge and quit the force. When the public starts turning against the police, it is not good to be a police officer.

On top of that, if I am getting robbed and the crooks have guns, I do not want the police identifying what race they are and only shooting the white robbers if they are threatening my life..

I don't expect BLM to protect and serve.

But you only want the cops to protect and serve if you absolutely cannot armchair QB them and second-guess them 6 ways from Sunday too.

Been listening to the scanner since I posted, not one peep, static. This is gonna be good.

I expect the police to be subject to the law.

I'm not second guessing anything but it seems that, if the rumors are true, there are a lot of cops who don't really care about that. That's why I doubt the rumors are true. I don't think the police will abandon those they are sworn to protect.

Hmmmm

After some Atlanta police officers call out, mayor asks them to honor commitment to community

www.cnn.com...

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 told CNN on Wednesday evening.

The Police Department social media says differently.

Unfortunately for the public affairs dude, the police dispatch radios are readily available

All you can hear is static


Listened for about 20 min. Not a peep.


I've been listening for a while and there is traffic, though not much.

Depends on the circumstances entirely. When you have citizens who are literally saying a cop should stand there and take a taser shot from a thug and allow the chips to fall where they may rather than ending the threat quickly and efficiently, then "f*ck the citizens" is not an out of line attitude for the police to have, IMO.

At the end of the day, ask this... how much property tax do the majority of the people protesting against the cops pay? In that way, they do not represent the cops' "bosses" in any manner. Yet those protesters are essentially calling for the police to neither protect nor serve those who actually ARE paying their salaries, property owners and businesses. They want the cops to stand down so the dregs of this country's society can run roughshod over the productive class. Sorry, I disagree with that BUT if we go to a significantly depleted policing structure, every major city will see what happened in Detroit and Auburn Hills in the 90s and early 2000s... Auburn Hills paid money to build a wall around their clean community and they employed private security to serve and protect them while Detroit proper fell into chaos and became a total #hole.

Some Atlanta police call in sick




Bottoms said that some officers are staying on shift to make up the difference and the city could call on partners in other departments across the metropolitan area and in other jurisdictions if needed.
