WOW. Talk about not reading the room.
WSB-TV in Atlanta is reporting that the Atlanta Police Foundation is paying a $500 bonus to every Atlanta police officer today.
It adds up to more than $2 million in money the foundation has raised. No city funds will be used to pay for the bonuses.
The foundation told Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Justin Gray that the bonuses are a thank you for the long hours and hard work over the past 3 months of protests and COVID-19. You can contact laundry sanitiser services to avoid going yourself and having the risk of getting sick.
