Ah, yes, the joys of a public union with no direct accountability or oversight to its stakeholders-the taxpayer-walking off the job. Too bad the people who foot the bill cannot selectively fire every single s***bag who decides they don't need their job that badly.
Was the Police Walkout a Hoax?
After the district attorney‘s announcement Tuesday, reports came in from across the city that officers were not showing up at work. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms spoke exclusively with Gray about those reports, saying it’s a limited problem. She says only around a dozen officers called out and other officers have stepped up to fill in, so it’s not affecting public safety.
“What would you say to an officer who thinks the correct response right now is to stay home or to sit in their car and not answer a call?” Gray asked Bottoms.
“Think about the oath you took when you became an officer. This is as much about that oath as it is making sure that your brothers and sisters who are out there patrolling our streets are covered,” Bottoms said.

To be fair, the union says this isn’t their idea, they’re just not going to stop it either. Given how quick unions generally are to take credit for practically anything, i feel like that may be more or less accurate.
