Atlanta cop

The crime rate in Atlanta is spiraling out of control. Worrisome statistics shows a spike in violent crimes, from 59 shootings in all of 2015 to 85 shootings in the first half of 2016.

It's easy to blame President Obama's open borders policy as a major factor in the increased murder rate in metro Atlanta.

But Atlanta's mayor Kasim Reed and the Atlanta Police Department are also taking the blame for the high crime rates.

One of Atlanta's finest was caught sleeping on the job over the busy 4th of July weekend.

The photo of the black cop nodding off in a patrol unit was uploaded to Twitter.com by @EverythingGeorgia.

The APD was quick to calm the public's fears by noting that the officer is being dealt with.

“We have identified him and are taking appropriate action,” the Atlanta PD noted in a Twitter post.

How embarrassing for that cop's family.

    dam they couldnt wait to post that!
    he could be doing worse.
    ive been known to doze off....

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    God Damnit! I bet he is so mad at himself. No telling why he was so tired. Doesn't excuse it but damn damn damn...

    His fellow police officers won't be "caught" in the alley with the prostitutes will they? I bet he gets it worse than the ones that kill people.

    boo.

    He had to be black.....right. But normally, "they" protect they own....#IJS, if his skin had no melanin would this be even an issue...."they" would finnd a way to dumb this down...

    How do we know he wasn't on his break?

  • Di Ana

    No worse than them sitting and running their mouths while the car running. Or on their cell while driving. Or cutting their lights on to pass someone just to turn them back off.

    I had a coworker from Trinidad who was like this. She was offended when someone said she was Black. "When you look in the mirror what do you see"

  • B.Sweet is Savage

    Some people nap in their cars during lunch.

  • MissHarlem

    I see this often down south. One chick I party with in Miami is a cop and that bitch sleeps in her patrol car during breaks or down time. Right or wrong idc but this ain't new. Wonder if you will still blame President Obama in 2020...I know the answer is yes ?

  • Mystery User

    What happened?

  • B.Sweet is Savage

    You're not a goody anything. This is about preference and choice. Choosing to sleep in the car on break is just that a choice. It's not a crime. It's not the type of decision that 'defines' people as good or not.

  • Buttercup

    I'm going to say he was on his break, and no one try to convince me otherwise.

  • Look@m3

    I CANT BELIEVE THIS! Wait...this fulton county of course what they expect??!!??!

  • HIS4EVA

    it was a holiday weekend he probably pulled a double. #humanerror

  • Carrington

    Damn! We're putting brothers on blast and helping them lose their livelihood, huh? Who knows how good of an officer this guy is? Maybe he pulled a double... maybe he had an really eventful night. Maybe this was an isolated incident. Who amongst us hasn't had a case of the sleeps at work and went to the bathroom and got you five minutes? I hope the brother is reprimanded and we don't have folk calling for his head. It's happened to the best of us... I know it's happened to me.

  • Mystery User

    Yeah and Mike Brown really did it.
    You don't have to take up for cops - they have enough of them to take up for themselves.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Way back in day, when I worked 2 jobs, went to school...I used to go get it sleep wise in my car. Would leave one situation, stop by home to shower and eat and go to the next, and sleep. So I wouldn't be late. Only had a small window anyways. At work and school. Who knows this dude's situation. God bless him.

  • MissHarlem

    I understand why they wouldn't want to be labeled as black. Ignorant either way and I'm from Trinidad

    Yeah but when you come over here, you look how you look. People can't assume what type of black you are just by looking at you. Every other race just sees you and, more importantly, treats you as black. Now it's another thing once they start talking and getting to know you.

    Exactly what I said!! We don't know how many hours this man been up working. With all the crime, I'm sure APD could use more officers. The man was tired! He could've been on break.

  • Ceezus

    I agree, the car may not have been the best place to take a power nap but what if he nodded off for a sec then snap, put on blast.

    And I bet it was a fellow black person who took the picture and had it uploaded. Smh. Instead of just waking up the officer, this person found it appropriate and funny to post it on social media. Wow. Get a life. Always our own kind bringing one another down. ?

    How the hell did someone get that close to him though....dang. I heard that they were stretched to the limit & need more officers. Personally, I'm glad he was caught so his superiors can address the why & before he accidentally made a fatal mistake because he was tired.

    What's embarrassing is this man's picture being plastered all over the Internet without people knowing why he fell asleep. None of us know if he was on medication that made him drowsy or if he worked a double shift and should've been sent home to rest. He isn't the first officer to nod off in his car, and I doubt he will be the last. I'm not sure why his race was called into question, either.

    When people have a homeland and nationality other than the US, they choose not to identify as black or white.

    Just like you have Africans who don't say they are black they say they are Ghanian or Ethiopian, you have European immigrants who don't identify as white, they say they are Irish or Italian or otherwise.

    African Americans and Caucasian Americans must realize that not everyone identifies with black and white.

    Someone could've stolen his gun and shot him. Can't blame Obama for inner city violence. That's a whole different mentality there. Violence is a way of life and when many of them move to another state they take that violence with them. ATL has been off the chain for some years now and has progressively worsened. Feel sorry for kids who are raised in bad cities. Folks piled on top of one another and rampant crime.

  • fRAktal Reality

    @the guest - Regardless of whether or not an individual identifies as Black or White, DNA, blood type and SOUND DIALECTS (languages) contain the forensic evidence that distinguishes AUTOCHTHONS (Super COIL O-Blood Blacks) from HUMAN APES (STRAIGHT-HAIRED contorted DNA A/B/AB Hybrid APE-blooded Neanderthal gene non-Blacks).

    The original occupants of AfRAka and their genetic descendants already know they're 'Black' and acknowledge themselves as such within their respective mother tongues. AfRAkans, globally, identify themselves by blood lineage or ETHNIC GROUP. These are REAL nations (=land, language, culture) which existed long BEFORE the formation of CORPORATE UNIFIED TERRITORIES (countries) by human ape colonialists.

    What distinguishes one with AfRAkan PRIME BASE DNA (AUTOCHTHON) is the COIL HAIR STRAND...in addition to black skin.

    Quite frankly, given the inferior mental self-image that many Black Americans internalized over generations and continue to pass onto next generations who obsess over human ape recessive gene traits that 'gifts' them with albinoid traits of yellow, beige and pink depigmentation and de-AfRAkanizes them, it makes me appreciate other Black ethnic groups who AFFIRM blackness and demonstrate it in their generations.

    If Black Americans were the only Blacks on the planet, we'd be mixed and blended into nothingness having no bloodline identity. Thank GOODNESS for other Black nations who maintain ancestral communications and autochthon genetics.
