Atlanta police officer charged with murder in shooting death of Rayshard Brooks

Recommended Posts

Atlanta is not just any city. 

It's the home of MLK with a great tradition in the struggle for black civil rights. It's a majority black city with a majority black police force.

Not just Atlanta, the other cities as well.

It may be time for America to change its police force from white to black.

America has no police force. Individual cities have there own police forces, and states generally have a Statewide traffic enforce (Think California Highway Patrol). These cities police forces in most cases, and the exceptions being those who are not in compliance with their own laws which are rare, all are fully integrated police forces and reflect the ethnicity of the communities they serve. There is no such thing according to statistical evidence of disproportionate shootings of black Americans by white police officers. This is a myth.

1) The Atlanta Police Department is 58% Black.  

2) The kicking of Brooks after he was shot has not been proven.  The DA blew up a still photo of Rolfe with one leg bent as he stood over Brooks.  

3) The DA said : Brooks did not display “aggressive behavior” He also said in the recent past that a Taser is a deadly weapon.  He said this after 6 Atlanta Officer were fired for using a Taser during the the George Floyd Protest.   

4) Officers get complaint from the public and from supervisors. But not all police complaints are justified.  

5) Rolfe’s BodyCam footage indicates Rolfe rendered first aid to Brooks after he shot him.

 

 

I doubt this trial will happen anytime soon and definitely it will not be in Fulton County.  Let’s see if Rolfe get’s a “jury of his peers”?

I think he had been released early from incarceration on another charge because of Covid. Not 100 percent sure of that but there is your motivation. Mr. Brooks was no cop killer. He wanted a freakin burger! 

Yep he wanted one so badly he fell asleep in the drive in lane twice because he had drunk so much ,gosh he must have been hungry.

Subject was unarmed and had been searched by officers.  They had full knowledge what it was as during arrest scuffle he obtained officers taser and that was immediately shouted out by officer.

While fleeing he reportedly fired taser.

Police shot him multiple times in the back while more than 5 meters away and no threat.

Police kicked and stood on shoot suspect rather than providing medical attention.

I think that is a very good summary.

Actually it was clear from interaction that he wasn't massively drunk. Drunk enough for a DUI yes. Probably a mix with being tired. Being in that line proved to be a fatal mistake. If he had been snoozing a bit in the parking lot most likely he would have been left alone.

yep he should have just had a snooze in the car park ,mind you if he had been in the UK he would have got a massive fine for staying to long .

He took the taser and shot it back at the police officer.  But you can't slant the truth if you include all the information leading up to the shooting.  Nice fake article Thai visa.  Why can't you ever present all the facts.  

You're complaining about facts? What is fake is your assertion that Brooks fired the taser. And try as hard as you might, try and explain away this:

"Brooks was running from the officers and was more than 18 feet (5.5 meters) away when Rolfe shot him twice in the back with a 9mm Glock pistol, with one of the rounds penetrating his heart, Howard said."

The first thought that comes to mind is, what cop is going to use deadly force against a violent black person ever again when the "Death Penalty" is possible. From now on the 3 magic words will be "I can't breathe"  This will soon become a joke in the black community. What will a cop do when those 3 magic words are spoken? Well the cop will stop everything, call EMS, call for back up and call for social services. What white cop in there right mind would agree to take a call in a black neighborhood.

 

Kum Bah Yah America

They brought it on themselves, by shooting unarmed men, running away, and claiming they feared for their lives.
