      Nope. Not guilty is guaranteed. Supreme Court already decided this long ago. If you don’t know, then you will be in for a surprise

    • I guess it’s going to pay now to be a crook it’s not a race thing that guy asked for it he could’ve went and signed his self out of jail and be alive today it was all browns doing not the cops

    The rats are turning on each other………:-)

  3. When it starts with “fell asleep in the drive thru” and ends with “homicide by the police” one would think that maybe, just maybe, there’s something not quite working right. 🤔🤨

      Thank you…..should have ended with drunk man spends night in jail. The End

      *Drunk or sleeping, Brooks ended up real dead, shot by a policeman. It’s only right for that policeman to get life without a chance for parole.*

    • He was on parole for beating his kids. Now the kids got scholarship to college, they will just have to go there to get their degrees.

    • gregory robinson | June 17, 2020 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      @MoD PR okay……does that mean they should have used deadly force.

    • He should have called ambulance when he could hardly wake him up, he should not have asked him to drive in that condition, not even to the nearest parking spot. Was he worried about Wendy’s profits?

      Then the second cop should have told the first that he compromised the case by letting him drive …they could still be quarreling about that in the parking lot.

  4. This cop’s future: “In here you the…”

  5. Whoa! They literally threw the book at him!

      @Owen Marble are those the crimes that he was being detained for?

      @Fahim Ahmad Fought the police and shot at the police with a taser. Yeah a taser is not dangerous like a gun, but if used wrongfully, you can die !!!

      *Satisfactorily at that too i might add since it was quite a THICK book.*

      I don’t know how many of those are gonna stick though. Honestly, I’d be happy if he does 15 years in prison.

      @frictionRx9 But it’s not murder or shooting someone in the back who’s running or kicking him after he’s already down. And firing shots at the car his friends are in.

    Yea, I will always remember a black American woman and the love she showed to me in many ways!

    Alright, now I’m really out.

    *A*

    • Saul Rosenburg | June 17, 2020 at 9:03 PM | Reply

      Are you assuming all black women are the same because that would be racist. Perhaps you’re virtue signaling.

  7. Going to be hard to get a jury in Atlanta not aware of pre-trial news conferences.

    • I am 1000% sure all the persons to served as juror in this case : will unambiguously and singularly vote for conviction ;as it relates to the heartlessness exhibited by officers after killing Brooks…

    The same D. A. charged cops with assault with DEADLY weapon when they tased someone

    • Abstract Thought | June 17, 2020 at 9:20 PM | Reply

      @Paula Lewis Listen psycho, you don’t even know me. To call me a murderer for stating facts is just beyond the pale. If he hadn’t fought the police, he would be alive today. You fight arrests in a court of law, not by assaulting police officers.
      Do you even live in reality or do you just see all police shootings as wrong and all those killed as innocent victims, regardless of facts?

    • @Abstract Thought🗣️ Argument? I don’t argue with fools🙄

    • Abstract Thought | June 17, 2020 at 9:29 PM | Reply

      ​@Ygh Huh I hope one day you are smart enough to realize how stupid you are.

    • @Abstract Thought Sphincter says what?

    • #Nope. They were charged with Aggravated Assault. Aggravated assault includes assault either assault with a deadly weapon; or an assault which did or could cause serious injury.

  9. Jorge Martinez | June 17, 2020 at 6:29 PM | Reply

    Again… 😢

  10. So now an alleged criminal knows that by resisting arrest and running away that any officer that fires upon him is liable to potential felony murder charges.

  11. This society protects criminals now more than law abiding citizens.

    Good luck with zero police officers in your town Atlanta ! Cuz after this there going to be quitting in droves ! resisted arrest and stole the weapon and try to use a weapon on a police officer who fired to defend himself gives a s*** what he did after he was shot ! Even though that is the procedure they are taught ! Get ready for the crime wave Atlanta you’re going to get exactly what you deserve !

      *Let them white cops resign in droves. GOOD RIDDANCE. Clean the swamp, start with a clean slate. I’m sure there are many more good people of all colors who can replace those spineless cops.*

    The cop needs a raise and a promotion.

  14. Carlen Sizemore | June 17, 2020 at 8:23 PM | Reply

    See it here first. With all the evidence in video, he will NOT be convicted.

  15. RMS Fabrications | June 17, 2020 at 8:39 PM | Reply

    Total bs, he pointed a weapon AT THE COP! what do you expect?! This is insane . Drunk, resisting arrest, then pointing a weapon at a cop

    • So the cops consider a taser NOT to be a “deadly weapon” when they use it on a civilian, but suddenly a taser is a deadly weapon when a civilian tries to use it on them. It’s always the same – the rules always change to fit their circumstances.

      FLYNN no the D.A. Considered tasers a deadly weapon when he fired two cops for useing one on protesters that refused to leave a car by calling tasers a deadly weapon

  16. RyAnn Hutchins | June 17, 2020 at 8:43 PM | Reply

    Seriously…did they stop teaching cops how to fight?

  17. Christian 153 | June 17, 2020 at 8:55 PM | Reply

    The cops did their job. What is the problem here. If you’re dumb enough to fight with the police and you take one of their weapons you should expect to die.

  18. censorship bites | June 17, 2020 at 9:11 PM | Reply

    This is insane. I’m embarrassed by my hometown devolving into absolute lawlessness.
    You can now steal a cop’s weapon, and he’ll be punished. Sheer insanity.

    Wow!! Cops get attacked, punched, and shot at and he gets arrested???

    No jury will incarcerate the cop, its a text book action in modern times.
