Two new black deaths spark new protests in CA and GA after tensions seemed to simmer

In Palmdale, CA last week a young black man by the name of Robert Fuller, was found dead hanging from a tree near the Palmdale City Hall.

Initially, death has ruled a suicide. But after protestors gathered outside city hall on Saturday, Palmdale city officials announced they are “officially supporting the call for an independent investigation and an independent autopsy,” local media reported.

 


The city said they are “joining the family and the community’s call for justice, and we do support a full investigation into his death. We will settle for nothing less than a thorough accounting of this matter.”

Many high profile celebrities like Kim Kardashian called for a thorough investigation. Including the release of security camera footage.

Then on Friday police killed 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta, GA behind Wendy’s drive-through.

According to AP News,  the man was fatally shot by officers in a struggle following a field sobriety test. Authorities said the slain man had grabbed an officer’s Taser, but was running away when he was shot.

On Saturday Atlanta’s police chief resigned. And the mayor called for the immediate firing of the unidentified officer who opened fire at Brooks.

With tensions simmering down after the riots from George Floyd’s death, these deaths have sparked some new outrage and protesting.

AP NEWS By RUSS BYNUM and BRYNN ANDERSON reported.

The GBI released security camera video of the shooting Saturday. The footage shows a man running from two police officers as he raises a hand, which is holding some type of object, toward an officer a few steps behind him. The officer draws his gun and fires as the man keeps running, then falls to the ground in the parking lot.

GBI Director Vic Reynolds said Brooks had grabbed a Taser from one of the officers and appeared to point it at the officer as he fled, prompting the officer to reach for his gun.

“In a circumstance like this where an officer is involved in the use of deadly force, the public has a right to know what happened,” GBI Director Vic Reynolds told a news conference on a day when protesters gathered at the scene of the shooting and in other areas of Atlanta.

The security camera video does not show Brooks’ initial struggle with police.
