Atlanta (CNN)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. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard earlier in the day announced 11 charges against Garrett Rolfe, who was fired after he shot Rayshard Brooks twice in the back on Friday night. A third shot hit a car with three people inside.
The police department said an unusual number of officers working the late shift had called out sick. The mayor said the city would be OK. "There's a lot happening in our cities and our police officers are receiving the brunt of it, quite frankly," Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms told CNN's Chris Cuomo. She said the city has committed to the officers through a big pay raise, and "we expect that our officers will keep their commitment to our communities."
She said she thinks morale is down tenfold.

hey BOTTOMs. Call a social worker.
If a call goes sideways, and somebody dies, they’re charged with murder and publicly decried and condemned in advance of any investigation. How much do they get paid a month? Does the “community” honor their “commitment” to them, or are they the scapegoat of convenience for politicians and rioters.
Yeah, we have to depend upon the jury. And the system that presents evidence for their consideration.
Looks like the lady who is beating DA Howard is campaigning against a lack of investigation of cases and the imposition of unjustified charges against people.
was saying on another thread that i walked right into a few hundred blm protesters in brooklyn.
it was a unique experience :)
Not going to happen. They are smart enough to get more than 50 percent of the population depending on their monthly checks. If that doesn’t work, ensure no one gets healthcare.
Easter was cancelled under a Republican prez who also gets credit for bumpstock bans and caravans of lawbreakers.
True socialists/ communists willl birn your grandkids alive, aka Cuba. Anyone in America really gutsy enough to stop this?
They are winning even this weak with Republican pick supremes ready to imprison folks because of the words in Red, spoken by Jesus, affirming creation and God blessed marriages.
Politicians are special.........They don’t have to honor their commitment to the community......
From the videos I've seen, the suspect would be alive if he'd continued to cooperate, if he didn't fight with the two cops, if he didn't take a cop's taser, if he didn't turn around while running to aim the taser at a pursuing cop. He wasn't shot until that happened. That suggests to me the cop was acting in defense of himself, his partner & probably the public still in the parking lot.
Nothing about that situation looks good for the cop(s) in my view.
I wonder if his name used to be Mike Nifong? 😆
Now you're talking. Thanks for accurately describing what we are being attacked by.
This wont change until there is a mass walk out of every police officer in a big city.
Enjoy a day without police Atlanta.
She needs to take her case to the mob she is pandering to.
Atlanta has burned once and she had better get her mind straight before it burns again.
DA Paul Howard - under Georgia law a taser is a deadly weapon
and many authorities have armed security as they talk of disarming YOU.
Committment to Commmunity?
What about the Mayors Committement to Community.
Seems that she bailed to support a mob rather than the Community.
She is sparkin for Joe Biden’s Shotgun Seat instead of being committed to the community.
Her outward appearance is oone of beauty and intelligence.
She has made a huge mistake in playing to the mob.
The entire police dept. of Atlanta a may simply quit and move to fly over country.
Many, many more police officers should get the blue flu, as they call it, or simply quit.
One can not be true to an oath working for a criminal and corrupt, leftist mayor.
Democrat mayors amaze me. They call fur the death of officers and then demand they keep their commitments to the community.
“Looks like the lady who is beating DA Howard is campaigning against a lack of investigation of cases and the imposition of unjustified charges against people.”
I wonder if this is one of the DA races Soros is trying to buy?
