Atlanta, Georgia – As of this week Atlanta Police have investigated 64 homicide cases this year. That represents a 58% increase over this time last year. This disturbing surge follows a historically deadly 2020 when law enforcement investigated 157 homicide cases. This was the most in over two decades.
Atlanta Mayer Keisha Lance Bottoms disingenuously has referred to the incredible spike in violence as a “COVID crime wave”. However, the city’s death toll continues to increase as Georgians get vaccinated. As of June, Atlanta’s murders and shootings have increased by 40%. Unfortunately, overall arrests are down by about 43% as criminals have found that they can shoot, murder and steal with impunity since Atlanta’s police force is attempting to provide police protection with a shortage of over 400 police officers under their normal staffing level.
In 2020 in excess of 200 officers quit the force after criminal charges were files against the two involved in the unfortunate deadly shooting of Rashard Brooks. Another 75 Atlanta police have quit the police force since the beginning of the year due to unprofessional morale problems and lack of support from the mayor’s office and city officials.
