      Seriously.....who would want to get into LE at this point, let alone APD. Their own mayor went on CNN and admitted that after watching Brooks violently resist arrest and assault 2 of her city police officers, her thoughts were why cant the cops "Just let um go..."

        On the other hand, unemployment is still high so some may still apply because they don’t have many options. This is probably the case for smaller, more rural agencies. But I can imagine that major agencies’ recruiters will have their work cut out for them....

          It will be interesting to see how many retire in the next few weeks nationwide. I wonder if any other agencies are going to be feeling ill in the coming weeks as well, just like Atlanta is now. APD, officers from across the country are watching you and support you. Stay safe.

            Good for the cops. I wholeheartedly support that they are all sick and cannot work. It's almost like it's some kinda illness going around the country that only seems to be contracted by cops.....boy I hope that sickness doesn't hit my department.

              Oh I agree.................

              However read Ask A Cop and remember all those "I have always dreamed of being a cop"

                My bunion is telling me the future of LE will be arrest if you can, but as soon as things start getting physical, then 'tactically disengage'.

                Kinda like what happened with vehicle pursuits... pursue if you can, but as soon as they start driving 110mph, let them go.

                The result, of course, is everyone will start resisting and fighting because they know the police will disengage.

                What does not kill you will likely try again.

                  I wonder how much disengagement is going to occur when the building being burned isn’t a police substation or a franchised chain restaurant but city hall?

                  How much force do you think they will demand the police use to save their offices? What about an “autonomous zone” operating out of council chambers?

                    Ask the mayor of Olympia, WA, who was all for BLM...until they vandalized her house. Now, they're "domestic terrorists."

                      Well that’s a reactionary jump. And people say the police are the problem.

                    The mayors of Atlanta, Seattle, and a few other cities are hoping the 'appeasement approach' will calm the angry mobs, at least enough so their city hall doesn't get looted and torched.

                    Like I keep saying: the direction things are going is this: crime and mayhem is preferred over police oppression.

                    I worked for ten years in a violent, big city, where black on black crime kills an average of 350 people per year, or one person per day. Which is absolutely horrible. But all you hear about the issue is the sound of crickets.

                    My prediction: big cities will become unlivable unpoliced hellholes, people with the means will emigrate to suburbs and rural areas, and when Atlanta has 2,500 murders per year (like in Cape Town), there won't be a peep about it.

                    What does not kill you will likely try again.

                      ...because they don't know what they are getting into.

                      Just like joining the military, my recruiter never lied to me... I just didn't know what questions to ask.

                        Tank, ,you know good and well that not knowing what they are getting into is many times the norm in Law Enforcement. That's the reason so many "candidates" fail the testing , academy, and FTO parts of becoming a cop.

                        It won't stop a significant number of people..............just like needing knee pads has never stopped some people from promoting way above their skills

                        Of course... that's why so many quit around the 5 year mark. If some of the rumors about what's about to pass in Denver are true, I'll be hanging it up myself.

                        The two biggest provisions in the bill Polis just signed are: no consensual contacts initiated by police, and no qualified immunity.

                      After the last 3 weeks, I will never again encourage people to become a cop.

                      As I posted in a different thread, why anyone would want to be a police officer in the city of Atlanta is beyond my comprehension.

                        The reason for my wanting to serve even now is due to (I'm sure current and former officers will agree) a burning desire to serve the community regardless of how bleak things look in society. I think about those Officers of whom are currently serving and much like the military, when everyone else forgets about those to your left and your right, you still have your brothers and sisters serving along side you.

                        This is coming from someone who had very limited experience in "law enforcement" via the Marine Corps (if that can even be considered LE) who still has a burning desire to become a police officer. I feel like after all these police officers that do end up leaving for greener pastures and rightfully so, I owe it to the ones that remain to give them the help they need.

                        As Ludicrous as this sounds, that's how I feel about this.

                          Depending on your jurisdiction, right now you will go to jail for murder for doing exactly what your training tells you to do and the law allows. Be very careful.
