From Fox News:
Atlanta police officers are continuing to call out of work while concerns are emerging over a lack of direction from the department’s new leadership, according to a report.
The call outs began Wednesday after a district attorney announced charges against two Atlanta officers in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks. Fox5 Atlanta says it has received tips of officers calling or walking out of the job again during the night shift Thursday, although the department has not confirmed the information
“The police officers are like you are damned if you do, damned if you don’t,” retired DeKalb County Police Major K.D. Johnson told the station. “I have heard that there have been some call outs and some refusing to respond to calls.”
“The officers I’ve spoken to say they have no direction from the new leadership and that’s a concern because they need to know who’s got their back,” Johnson told the station.

IT BEGINS: Atlanta School ABANDONS ‘Pledge of Allegiance,' Says 'NOT INCLUSIVE'
A charter school in Atlanta, Georgia announced this week that it will no longer recite the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ at the start of each day; caving to pressure from an increasing number of students and teachers who refuse to stand for the patriotic ceremony.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper, the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School abandoned the Pledge for all of its elementary students; saying “Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge.”
“Teachers and the K-5 leadership team will be working with students to create a school pledge that we can say together at morning meeting,” added the press release.
“This pledge will focus on students’ civic responsibility to their school family, community, country and our global society,” added the announcement.
