ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Several Atlanta Police officers have reportedly walked off the job at precincts across the city. The claim comes hours after charges were filed against ex officer Garrett Rolfe and Officer Devin Brosnan in the Rayshard Brooks' case.
The buzz of patrol officers staging walkouts and refusing to answer calls from Precincts 3,5,6 and others began circulating social Wednesday evening.
CBS46 confirmed the walkout through sources at 8:30 p.m.
APD attempted to quiet the noise of a walkout by tweeting:

Pull the security team for the mayor.
Any Atlanta Freepers who can tell us whats up?
Is that a picture of a lynch mob outside the jail?
There’s a related thread on this subject that has well over 300 responses where within that thread a few Atlanta residents chimed in and refuted this. They say it’s a false claim. I don’t know one way or the other. I’m just commenting on the statements by several Freepers who say they are from the city who are refuting this.
According to the official tweet, it’s a call out, not a walk out.
LOL...Henry Glass is reporting for duty.
What’s a “call out?”
I wouldnt be so quick to characterize that thread as saying that there is no walkout.

Search the net and there isn’t a thing on it regarding a walk out.
Gotten a lot play here on FR but nothing on the national news.
I didn’t say that. I said, within that thread, there are Freepers who say they are from Atlanta who say it is not true.
Listen into zone 5 dispatch...pretty quiet. Evidently there are four zones undermanned...
This is an election year. A crazy time, it is. If this craziness and insane conduct from BLM, Antifa, Democrat/UniParty Politicians does not die down after Trump’s reelection, there must be a major a**-whoopin’ to slap these destroyers down once and for all.
Uh no all the cops have walked. There are no cops on the streets of Atlanta right now and all surrounding counties are refusing assistance as well as the national guard. GA state patrol only handling accidents.
The Zone 6 dispatch is nearly dead silent.
....”Gotten a lot play here on FR but nothing on the national news”....
A common occurrence here on FR. It seems “national news” misses a lot.
Im from Georgia. I have friends in Atlanta Im not going to doxx them but this is not a hoax. You can imply that if you like. If you would point me to your referenced posts ( other than those at the beginning noting an early tweet was pulled) Ill be glad to eat my words.
I didn’t imply anything at all. I simply stated that within that lengthy thread there are Freepers who say they are from Atlanta who dispute the claim. That is true. And, that is all I said.
If you dispute those Freepers claims you take it up with them.
