Atlanta Police Walking Off the Job After Fulton County Prosecutor Charges Officer Garrett Rolfe

The police are standing down.

A considerable element of the Atlanta Police Department are leaving their posts in the wake of the controversial criminal charges filed against Officer Garrett Rolfe, who was recently fired from the department after a shooting of a man many are claiming was legally justified.

Rolfe shot and killed Rayshard Brooks when attempting to arrest the 27-year old for suspicion of driving under the influence. The latter had resisted arrest and taken Officer Rolfe’s taser device, deploying it against him as he fled the police before being shot.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard announced that he would prosecute Rolfe on felony murder charges with the possibility of the death penalty on Wednesday. However, some Georgia law enforcement point to the shooting as a justified use of force, with Burke County Sheriff Alfonzo Williams pointing to the incident as a justified shooting after the suspect used the taser against police officers.

After charges were announced, reports indicated that a sizable contingent of Atlanta Police Department personnel have walked off the job in protest of the Fulton County District Attorney’s decision to press charges against Rolfe.

Conservative commentator Steve Deace describing receiving an email from an Atlanta police officer in the wake of the announcement confirming that many Atlanta police were turning off their car radios and declining to respond to reports of criminal conduct.

After the highly questionable criminal charging of a police officer who shot a suspect who deployed a potentially deadly weapon against him, it appears the city of Atlanta is about to begin an experiment in the operation of a major American city without police.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
