Former Atlanta Police Department officer Garrett Rolfe conducts a field sobriety test on Rayshard Brooks

Russia Today: A medical examiner officially confirmed that Rayshard Brooks died as a result of an officer-involved shooting during a botched DUI arrest. The incident reignited protests against racism and police brutality in Atlanta, Georgia.

How police treat ‘white folks…’

Brooks died from organ damage and blood loss which resulted from two gunshot wounds in the back, according to media reports citing the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office. His death has now been officially listed as homicide.

Two white police officers were called in on Friday night to check on Brooks, who was found sleeping behind the wheel outside a Wendy’s fast food restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. Brooks failed a sobriety test, after which the officers decided to take him into custody.

The suspect, who remained calm and cordial during questioning, suddenly began resisting arrest, grabbed a stun gun from one of the cops, and tried to flee. During a brief chase, officer Garrett Rolfe fired several shots, killing Brooks.

Brooks’ death in the police-involved shooting immediately caused unrest and protests, and the officer was promptly fired. On Sunday, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard told CNN that the fact that a routine DUI investigation escalated to the suspect’s death “just seems unreasonable.” 

The incident occurred while the US was already engulfed in widespread protests against racism and police brutality, sparked by the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, by a white police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

  1. Now. couldn’t these fine Atlanta cracker cops have just called an Uber driver to take Mr. Brooks home without arresting him and at the worst, impounded his car??? This is how cops with a minimum of common sense and functional thinking should reason, but unfortunately all those anabolics are affecting whatever is left of their PTSD challenged brains.

    • Yes, they took his life out of nothing! I just can’t imagine such sick situation..
