The Morning Briefing: Atlanta PD Seems to Suffer Outbreak of ‘Blue Flu’ After Charges Brought in Rayshard Brooks Case
Need a Cop Atlanta? Shoulda Thought About That Earlier.
Police in the United States have been under siege for almost a month now because of one very bad cop in Minneapolis. Men and women who risk their lives every time they go to work are being painted with a broad brush, being portrayed as plagued by systemic racism and routinely abusing power. That, after all, is the justification for all the rioting and looting the last three weeks.
Yes, the are bad cops out there. There are bad people in every profession. Human beings are a messy bunch and some of us are just plain evil. Most of us aren’t though. This collective guilt nonsense that we’re being told we must believe in to be better people is absurd.
Some of the cops out there have been trying to appease the mob, kneeling with them and hoping that they would act a little less lunatic. Others have gone about doing their jobs under very trying circumstances, sometimes running afoul of their civilian overlords.
After charges were filed against the officers involved in the Rayshard Brooks shooting in Atlanta, several members of the police department didn’t seem to be up to coming into work. The exact number of cops who didn’t show has been difficult to determine as the police union won’t admit that it’s actually happening and the media is just hoping this will go away.
There were numerous people on Twitter monitoring police scanners and confirming that the walkout seemed to be extensive.
ATLANTA Ga. (WRBL) – A blue flu appears to be sweeping across the Atlanta Police Department as many officers walked out or did not come to work allegedly protesting murder charges filed against one of their own on Wednesday.
The non-profit group Georgia Law Enforcement shared the following information late Wednesday night on their FB page.
“The head of Atlanta’s police union confirmed Wednesday that officers from the Atlanta Police Department in Zones 3 and 6 walked off the job Wednesday afternoon.
The officers’ anger is understandable to anyone not buying into the current “all cops are evil” narrative. Rayshard Brooks was resisting arrest, then grabbed one of the officer’s taser away from him. The press is basically canonizing him and making it look like the officer who shot him just wanted to take target practice. Even more infuriating, Fulton County DA Paul Howard decided that Brooks and the taser didn’t pose a threat to the officer. This happened just two weeks after Howard charged several cops for using tasers during an arrest, saying that a taser is “considered a deadly weapon under Georgia law.”
That’s right, in the hand of a drunk and disorderly man who’s resisting arrest, the taser isn’t a threat, but it’s a deadly weapon if a cop is holding it.
Could what’s happening in Atlanta be just the beginning of a mass protest by cops around the country, or maybe even a mass exodus? Why would any good cop in one of these liberal-run cities want to stay where he or she is not only underappreciated, but demonized? Any cop near a full pension has no real incentive to stick around this point. Chicago PD’s second in command announced his retirement on Tuesday.
Earlier this month, Buffalo PD’s riot response team resigned after disciplinary action was taken against some of their colleagues. They’re still on the force, but they left the Emergency Response Team without any personnel.
As I explained in the post about the Buffalo PD, I have had dealings with the cops from both sides of the law. I’m not some wild-eyed innocent that thinks there aren’t some problems to be fixed with policing in America. Still, if all of the good cops are going to get lumped in with the occasional bad cop, the willingness to head out every day to a job from which they might not return is bound to wane.
It’s tragic that Rayshard Brooks died, no one wants to see run-ins with the police end that way. On the other hand, every cop who does his job can’t be made an example of to appease an angry mob.

Democrats want to take away guns from law-abiding citizens in order to enslave all of us.
“To all the new hard left Democrats. A lot of you are not graciously accepting the fact that your candidate lost. In fact, you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump. Some of you are apparently “triggered” because you are posting how “sick” you feel about the results.
How did this happen, you ask?
You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech.
You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms.
You created “us” when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
You created “us” when you constantly referred to us as racists.
You created “us” when you constantly called us xenophobic.
told us to get on board or get out of the way.
You created “us” when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.
You created “us” when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
You created “us” when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.
You created “us” when you attacked our flag.
You created “us” when you took God out of our schools.
You created “us” when you confused women’s rights with feminism.
You created “us” when you began to emasculate men.
You created “us” when you decided to make our children soft.
You created “us” when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.
You created “us” when you attacked our way of life.
You created “us” when you decided to let our government get out of control.
You created “us” the Silent Majority.
You created “us” when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
You created us when politicians assimilated for Muslim refugees as American born politicians were wearing hijabs, what a disgrace to women.
You created “us” when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn’t remove your hat during our National Anthem.
And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.
Frederica Wilson is anti- US-military as well as anti-veterans
The measures that Wilson opposed included a bill that could have ensured that families of four soldiers slain in Afghanistan in 2013 received death and burial benefits.
In fact, Wilson’s voting record on veterans issues may call into question the sincerity of her recent defense of U.S. service members and their families.
Despite Wilson’s claim to be “committed to honoring our service members, not only with words but with deeds,” she has voted against most bills ensuring continued funding for veteran benefits, including payments to widows of fallen soldiers, the vote-tracking site shows.
She will apparently go to any lengths to help destroy our country and people. Someone apparently who has no conscience. It is claimed we are a racist country, excuse me, but look at the people who are killing our police, the people who are refusing to stand for our national anthem, the people who are the biggest crooks in our local government, and the ones who are coming out destroying so much of the good our country is and does – common factor? Democrats
Pray for President Trump and the downfall of all his enemies. –pastorwardclinton.com
“Countless Americans would be alive today and countless loved ones would not be grieving today if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended. Not only do these policies endanger lives of every American, just last May the Department of Justice inspector general found that these policies also violate federal law. The president has rightly said disregard for law must end…”
