FULL BODYCAM VIDEO Reveals Atlanta Police Being Patient, Respectful with Rayshard Brooks (VIDEO)

on

Last week, a police officer and his partner got a call that a man was asleep in his car at Wendy’s. To be more precise, he fell asleep in the drive-thru lane, blocking everyone else from getting their food.

New video from one of the officer’s body cam shows that the officers were very polite and restrained while talking to Brooks. Things only got violent after he took a breathalyzer test and failed it.

The police tried to place him under arrest and then Brooks became very violent and even took a taser away from one of the officers.

He then ran away from the officers, when he suddenly stopped and turned around and aimed the taser at the officers, at which point he was shot and killed.

The officer in question, Garrett Rolfe, was fired before they even did an investigation and since then more videos have come out. There is now some doubt that the officer acted badly, and although he might have, that is what investigations are for; to determine facts.

Here is the video.
Brooks was fighting two police officers:

But here is a video that shows the officers’ actions before Brooks got violent:

In the next video you will see Brooks turn and aim the taser at the officers. He may have fired it but you can’t tell by the video:

From Yahoo News

An Atlanta police officer involved in the death of a Black man at a fast-food restaurant has been fired and another placed on administrative duty, authorities confirmed early Sunday. 

The moves follow Saturday’s resignation of Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields, who stepped down as the Friday night killing of Rayshard Brooks, 27, sparked a new wave of protests in Atlanta after turbulent demonstrations that followed the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis had simmered down.

The terminated officer was identified as Garrett Rolfe, who was hired in October 2013, Atlanta Police Department Sergeant John Chafee told USA TODAY. The other officer placed on administrative duty is Devin Brosnan, who was hired in September 2018.
