Rayshard Brooks didn’t have to be six feet under the ground, right now. He chose to get shot, essentially. You can’t be drunk, resist arrest, fight with cops, grab a taser to use as a weapon and then expect to sleep in your own bed that night.

It just doesn’t add up.

Now that Officer Garrett Rolfe has been charged with murder (how ridiculous!), some of his peers have decided to call in quits in a show of solidarity.

From Star Tribune:

ATLANTA — Atlanta police officers called out sick Thursday to protest the filing of murder charges against an officer who shot a man in the back, while the interim chief acknowledged members of the force feel abandoned amid protests demanding massive changes to policing.

Interim Chief Rodney Bryant told The Associated Press in an interview that the sick calls began Wednesday night and continued Thursday, but said the department has sufficient staff to protect the city. It’s not clear how many officers have called out.

“Some are angry. Some are fearful. Some are confused on what we do in this space. Some may feel abandoned,” Bryant said of the officers. “But we are there to assure them that we will continue to move forward and get through this.”
