Both black and white citizens are being shot at, attacked and intimidated on their way home, in the area where Rayshard Brooks was shot in Atlanta. Police say they are attacked, as well.
Even if Atlanta PD decide to go back to work, it doesn’t mean that they will work. They can report to duty but fail to show up, when you need them. They can do slow-downs. They can sit and watch ball-games and tell people to call them back if everything’s still not ok. If it’s still not ok, it’s too late. Everyone wants to talk about over-policing, but no one talks about the dangers of under-policing. These are two extremes – over-policing looks like a dictatorship and under-policing the wild, wild west.
