New law sets Colorado police up for massive liability in lawsuits. Colorado state lawmakers passed legislation on Saturday that will be signed by Governor Polis.
It fundamentally changes policing in the state into the Progressive vision. The recent riots over the death of George Floyd are an excuse. Scapegoating police are an excuse. They are excuses for the far-left to install their progressive policing. The Denver Post reported that Senate Bill 217 – the Enhance Law Enforcement Integrity Bill – calls for multiple dramatic changes to the manner in which policing is conducted across the state. Under the new law, every officer in the state will wear a bodycam by July of 2023, and bodycams are required to be activated whenever officers respond to a call, the Denver Post reported. Officers must intervene if they think another officer is using excessive force or they will be charged with a class 1 misdemeanor or worse.
Police will lose all their limited immunity protections. If agencies don’t do it, they lose state funding. Messages call for NYPD July 4th strike to protest anti-police climate.

Yahoo reports a “higher than usual” number of Atlanta police officers called out of work Wednesday night after two officers were charged in the death of Rayshard Brooks, a Black man who was killed by police last week.
“The department is experiencing a higher than usual number of call outs with the incoming shift,” the police department tweeted Wednesday night. “We have enough resources to maintain operations & remain able to respond to incidents.” The police department denied that officers had “walked off the job.” But Vince Champion, southeast regional director for the police union International Brotherhood of Police Officers, told NBC News that some officers were in fact protesting the charges by walking off the job and not responding to some calls. “This is not an organized thing, it’s not a blue flu, it’s not a strike, it’s nothing like that,” Champion said. It’s unclear how many officers called out or allegedly walked off the job. Brooks then grabbed Brosnan’s Taser and ran away.

SIGN UP HERE. About 80 supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement were met by some 700 mostly white counter-demonstrators in a small Ohio town Sunday, as racial tensions continue to boil over around the country and media reports of the incidents are often politically skewed. As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, many of the counter-demonstrators were armed with firearms, but others carried baseball bats and other potential weapons to face off against the much smaller group of BLM protesters in the town of Bethel. The counter-demonstrators were made up of men and women, some from motorcycle gangs and others from “Back the Blue” groups which are supportive of police officers. 80% of South Bend police are thinking about quitting. According to a survey put out by the South Bend Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge #36 over the course of the past week, 80% of the 220 officers are thinking about resigning, the FOP said in a press release on Wednesday.
A whopping 78.84 percent of the officers who responded said that they have “considered resigning, retiring, transferring or otherwise leaving” the SBPD in the past six months. “Today, the South Bend Police Department is already facing a double-digit officer shortage that’s threatening the department’s ability to operate effectively,” FOP President Harvey Mills said in the release. “Our survey this week showed that a stunning 80% of current officers have recently considered resigning or transferring from the South Bend Police Department,” Mills wrote.
“If even 10% of those officers left the force it could cripple the department and lead to the elimination of units that investigate sexual assault and homicide.” The survey was taken after South Bend reversed a pay increase. Report: Police Officers Considering 'Blue Flu' on July 4. Over the last two weeks, police officers and their departments have been attacked due to the actions of Derek Chauvin.
During the recent rioting, we saw police attacked like never before in this country, with New York City being among the worst.

The Blue Flu. Georgia is advertising for police as Atlanta police call in sick. Police officers appeared to stage a walkout in Atlanta on Wednesday and Thursday.
The department spokesperson disputed it saying they were “inaccurate” and that the department was only “experiencing a higher than usual number of call-outs with the incoming shift.” However, only one officer came to work Thursday morning in one zone where normally several dozen are assigned, the AP reported. The first call-outs came on the same day that District Attorney Paul Howard announced charges in the deadly shooting of Rayshard Brooks against former APD officer Garrett Rolfe and Officer Devin Brosnan.
The callouts could be a culmination of a lot of abuse after all police did to try and contain the violence in Atlanta during the riots, at grave personal risk. The arrest and imprisonment of former Officer Rolfe without bail was very political. Major City will send Social Workers to 911 Calls.

City Council member David Mann ordered the public-input portion to end after crowd members started jeering and booing a speaker who wanted the city to increase -- not decrease -- funding for its police department, FOX 19 of Cincinnati reported. “This went from an emotionally charged evening to close to a mob,” Mann told the station. “We had one speaker who spoke in favor of the police, and he was shouted down. I said, ‘Hey listen folks, we are here to listen to each other,’ and then I was shouted down.” Atlanta cop calls shooting death of Rayshard Brooks a ‘tragedy,' looks forward to clearing name.

Nearly three-fourths of Washington's Metropolitan Police Department said in a poll that they are considering leaving the force amid a police reform bill recently passed by the D.C. Council.
