Atlanta Cops Walk Off The Job UPDATE: #BlueFlu Trends

Atlanta Police Walk Off

Multiple sources on Twitter are reporting that a large portion of the Atlanta Police Department’s officers have or are in the process of walking off the job.

It’s worth noting that I haven’t been able to find independent confirmation of any of this as of yet.

This move would seem to be in response to Officer Garrett Rolfe being charged with 11 counts-including felony murder and aggravated assault-in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks.

Rayshard Brooks was found passed out in his car at a Wendy’s drive-thru by Officer Rolfe and a second officer, Devin Brosnan. The officers administered several field sobriety tests, which Brooks failed. Brooks fought with the officers as they attempted to arrest him, stealing one officer’s taser in the process. Brooks attempted to flee the scene, but was shot by Officer Rolfe when he turned and pointed the taser at the officers.

The shooting touched off a fresh set of riots in Atlanta, during which the Wendy’s where the shooting took place was burned to the ground.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the state agency which traditionally investigates officer-involved shootings, released a statement earlier today making it clear that they had not yet finished their investigation, and were unaware of the forthcoming charges against Officer Rolfe.

This is a developing story. We’ll update as new information comes in.

Update: More sources are reporting Atlanta cops walking off the job.


Local news station WSB-TV has obtained a statement from the Atlanta PD.

The rumor is that Atlanta’s mayor is in full freak out mode, and the APD’s requests for aid from other jurisdictions have been rebuffed.

Update: The Atlanta PD has issued an official statement on their Twitter account.

Update: Atlanta news station CBS46 confirms cops in Zone 6 have walked out.

Zone 6, per the Atlanta Police Department’s website:

Zone 6 is located in East Atlanta and contains Boulevard Heights, Cabbagetown, Candler Park, Druid Hills, East Atlanta, East Lake, Edgewood, Emory Village, Glenwood Park, Grant Park, Inman Park, Little Five Points, Old Fourth Ward, Ormewood, Kirkwood, Poncey-Highland, Sweet Auburn, Reynoldstown, Virginia Highland and Woodland Hills.

Update: Mayor Keisha Bottoms earlier tonight with Fredo Cuomo. Mayor Bottoms says she expects her cops to keep their commitment to the city of Atlanta.

Remember, Mayor Bottoms is on Joe Biden’s short list for VP…

Reminder: Fulton County DA Paul Howard said Rayshard Brooks was not a threat even though he attacked two cops, stole one’s taser, and fired it at them.

2 weeks ago, however, Howard charged several officers with aggravated assault for using tasers on protesters.

Howard called the taser a deadly weapon.

Why was a taser a deadly weapon 2 weeks ago, but no threat today?

I think we all know the answer to that.

Side note: remember, Democrats and the Left are pushing to defund police departments nationwide. A recent YouGov poll shows literally no one wants that.

Late night update (Doomberg): Those on Twitter listening to police scanners are saying (and Patrick has confirmed, since he is listening too) that the cops are emptying the Zone 6 HQ building of weapons, cars, and personal items. Antifa may be preparing to attack the building.

Update (Radius is back!): The Atlanta walk off was the talk of Twitter last night. #BlueFlu has been trending since cops in several zones throughout the city walked off the job.

Rep. Paul Gosar had a message of support for the nation’s cops as well.


The trend appears to be spreading as well. The Gateway Pundit reported last night that over 40 LAPD transit cops had called in, stricken with the dreaded #BlueFlu. This came after 43 transit cops called out on Monday.

America’s cops are telling their (Democrat) leaders that they will not do their jobs if they are to be thrown to the woke wolves.

Update: Newsmax’s John Cardillo has an interesting-and most likely accurate-take on last night’s #BlueFlu wave.
