Atlanta

  • If you are so far away from Atlanta that you need a scanner app to hear them, they are too far away to worry about for tactical purposes. However, the narratives of the George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, et al incidents may show a trend that is interesting from a strategic standpoint, and something you may want to watch for in your community.
  • The lack of a police presence works both ways. If there are no cops to arrest the bad guys, then, quite theoretically speaking, there are no cops for someone to worry about if a bad guy suddenly becomes ambient temperature dependent in the process of doing something bad and winds up in a dumpster somewhere. Nor would there be any cops to worry about if someone, quite theoretically speaking, took grandpa’s M3, you know the one he smuggled out of Germany in his duffel bag after the war, out of its hiding place because it became a needed tool.
  • However, I expect the rule of law to be established in Atlanta, one way or the other, sometime in the future, and I advise my readers not to do anything they might regret later, whether it’s on a personal or legal level. With that said, here is a useful law for those of you living in Atlanta right now:

2010 Georgia Code
TITLE 17 – CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
CHAPTER 4 – ARREST OF PERSONS
ARTICLE 4 – ARREST BY PRIVATE PERSONS
ยง 17-4-60 – Grounds for arrest

O.C.G.A. 17-4-60 (2010)
17-4-60. Grounds for arrest

A private person may arrest an offender if the offense is committed in his presence or within his immediate knowledge. If the offense is a felony and the offender is escaping or attempting to escape, a private person may arrest him upon reasonable and probable grounds of suspicion.

One Response to “Atlanta”

  1. Paul Says:

    Literally had looters 2 blocks away during the Minneapolis/St. Paul fiasco. I was working and security announced there was a “disturbance” in the neighboring shopping center. I grabbed my scanner and listened to it live. It fizzled after a few stores were looted and the police finally showed up. This was a first ring suburb barely out of St. Paul with interstate access next to the shopping center. However, this continued all across the Twin Cities. It seemed to be a very well concerted affair. Interesting takeaway for me is police/Sate Patrol/NG used a series of “TAC” channels. The same TAC channels all week. No encryption. You could watch the cops broadcast what they were going to do and then see it happen on TV simultaneously. Interesting for me, the casual observer, but seemed like Amateur Hour from a professional stand point. Interesting times, indeed.
