They’re calling it the “Blue Flu.” Hundreds of Atlanta Police Officers tonight walked off the job and are refusing to take calls, leaving much of the city un-policed.
Atlanta cops are upset after the officer that used lethal force on Rayshard Brooks was charged with felony murder.
That, plus I’m sure they don’t appreciate the past few weeks of “Defund the Police!” and “ACAB” (All Cops Are Bastards).
Why would any cop want to do his job right now? It’s just not worth it. It’s even worse if you’re a white cop: you go into a black neighborhood on a call, you literally cannot do your job. No matter how justified you are, if you use lethal force, you will be charged with murder by a corrupt prosecutor and be massively demonized by the media.
It’s just not worth it.
Ultimately, this is the police sending the message: “You want to defund the police? We’ll show you a world without police. Burn.”
It feels good to see our side fighting back in the culture war for a change. This feels like the first positive development in months.
Maybe we won’t just surrender our country without a fight. Let’s hope.
