Fulton County DA announces if charges were made on officer in Rayshard Brooks case | USA TODAY 1


By early Sunday, Atlanta Police Department Sergeant John Chafee confirmed to USA TODAY that Rolfe, who was hired in October 2013, was fired for shooting Brooks. Brosnan was placed on administrative duty.


Video footage released by the Atlanta Police Department captures the timeline leading up to Brooks’ death, ruled a homicide by the Fulton County Medical Examiner on Sunday. Through a combination of the officer’s body camera, dash camera and Wendy’s surveillance, the footage reveals key decisions by the officers involved, and important context that may be presented in potential criminal or civil trials.

  1. This is absolutely disgusting. If you want to continue to penalize officers for enforcing the law, you will get officers who will not enforce the law. This CRIMINAL resisted arrest, tried to kill 2 police officers, and aimed a weapon at an officer. What more do you want? You can no longer complain when officers do nothing – they can now see that if they do, you will arrest them!

    Shame on Atlanta, Fulton County, and everyone who is on the anti-cop bandwagon.

      @Julian Rocha Just look for whatever organization is the opposite of Crime Stoppers if you want to help this officer so bad

      @Bengie Teng there was no threat or lethal weapon — no training should teach you how to shoot people who aren’t a threat. Even in the military you suffer consequences for what these dimwit cops did. Remember: we’re not punishing them for being stupid, we’re punishing them for being wrong.

    • @thesweatleaf he got a taser in his hand he even turn around to shoot it to the police, which video did you watched? go on stretch your imagination and make yourself believe that he didn’t do anything that will caused him to get arrested, and make yourself belief too that its ok to resist and steal a weapon to a police and get away with it.,

      @Bengie Teng you gotta consider the officer statements — police admitted they knew the taser was spent and could not be refired

    Yes everyone has forgotten 911 who helped the firemen…cops they risked their lives to help white black asian Americans etc that were in cement holes and steel holes. Remember 911 there was no racism there was there🇺🇸🇺🇸I now tell my family never to be a cop let them fend for themselves let them dig themselves out of holes Men 🇺🇸🇺🇸

      No civil war. Please no civil war. Just change the training of these damn corrupt cops and its system in your local area.

      @Sheeshkebabz Why are you back?

    • Matthew Keenan | June 17, 2020 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      @Sheeshkebabz You could have fulled me.

  5. I hope that cop sues the city for millions and files ethics complaints against the prosecutor.

  6. Defending a child abusing felon seems about right. These really are the end of days

  7. Just look at the dislikes and comments of this video and other videos related to this murder charge. That’s all you need to see to know how everyone feels about this.

  8. Remember when the media labeled a taser as a deadly weapon? Like hundreds of times actually. Don’t attempt to shoot a cop with a taser if you’re not planning on getting shots yourself.

    Making charges against someone is one thing getting it on conviction is another

  14. I’m thinking about getting really drunk tonight and passing out in a Wendy’s drive through. I want to see what happens.

  15. Leave the cities if you have any decency.

  16. 🙏🙏🙏

    You guys have to “stream” this and keep re uploading because you are afraid of the dislikes and truth.

  18. Matthew Keenan | June 17, 2020 at 9:32 PM | Reply

    Why do they keep deleting the dislikes on this site? last time I was here it was above 4.5 dislikes.

  19. The likes and dislikes keep getting reset….

    They want war, we will give them war. Defending a child abuser is really sign of end of times.
