Breaking News: Fox News reported:
Garrett Rolfe, the Atlanta police officer fired after the killing of Rayshard Brooks last week, now faces 11 charges including felony murder, which could potentially lead to the death penalty, a Georgia district attorney announced Wednesday.
A second officer, Devin Brosnan, is facing three charges, including aggravated assault. Brosnan has agreed to testify in the case against Rolfe, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Jr. said at a news conference.
Brooks was shot and killed outside a Wendy’s restaurant where he’d apparently fallen asleep in his car in the drive-thru lane. He allegedly failed a field sobriety test — and ultimately was seen wrestling with the officers and running with one of their Tasers leading up to the shooting.
The GBI is investigating an OIS involving one male subject & Atlanta Police Officers. The subject is deceased. One officer was treated for an injury and released from the hospital.

How does this happen? While all Americans believe the killing of George Floyd was unjustified, this shooting of Brooks was justified.
The police officers were calm and doing their job when Brooks decided to resist arrest, assault the police officers, steal one of the police officers tasers, and was trying to use it against him.
The idea that Brooks was shot in the back is deceiving. He was shooting the officers with a lethal taser. Once that taser hits an officer, he can be rendered paralyzed and Brooks could have stolen the cops’ gun and shot the cops.
That’s the scenario they are taught to avoid. Their lives were in jeopardy.
