The former Atlanta police officer facing murder charges in the death of Rayshard Brooks was reprimanded for pointing his gun at a car he and other officers were pursuing in a 2016 chase that violated policy, according to personnel records released by the Atlanta Police Department.
Hundreds of pages of documents regarding the ex-officer, Garrett Rolfe, were made public Friday, as the city continued to face upheaval over the June 12 shooting in a Wendy’s parking lot. At least nine officers have resigned since June, interim police chief Rodney Bryant said Saturday. Others have called out sick, citing unease over prosecutors’ swift decision to charge their colleagues, questions over their training or concern over being challenged and attacked.
The agency has shifted resources to ensure proper coverage of the city, added Bryant, who was appointed to lead the agency after Chief Erika Shields resigned following Brooks’s death. He asked for patience from officers and the public as the department worked toward change.
Now before the mainstream media started with all these police brutalities on blacks, there was a similar case as Atlanta’s shooting of Rayshard Brooks
From News 9:
DALTON, Ga. — UPDATE (March 2nd, 2020)
Conasauga Judicial District Attorney Bert Poston has cleared Dalton officer Eduardo Guerrero, according to a report in the The Daily Citizen-News of Dalton.
The newspaper reports that District Attorney Bert Poston has found the shooting “legally justified.” Poston has told the Dalton Police Department that he won’t seek charges.
Dalton Police Officer Guerrero was called after people said David Schmitt of Cohutta was trying to stand in front of or get into vehicles. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Guerrero tried to subdue Schmitt with a stun gun on July 22, but that Schmitt attacked Guerrero and tried to use the stun gun on the officer. Guerrero then shot Schmitt several times.
Schmitt survived, was released from the hospital, and is now in the Whitfield County jail. Jail records show he’s charged with aggravated assault, obstruction of an officer resulting in injury and misdemeanor failure to appear.
Just as a reminder bodycam and dashcam video shows the police officer who shot dead Rayshard Brooks begging the father-of-four to stay alive as he administered CPR to the dying man according to video shot on the scene
The shooting happened two weeks ago at the fast-food restaurant on University Avenue.
Police were called to the scene around 10:30 p.m. after complaints of a man asleep at the wheel near Wendy’s drive-thru line.
The man, later identified as Brooks, failed a field sobriety test, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. When officers tried to take him into custody, a struggled ensued. During the altercation, officials said Brooks grabbed an officer’s Taser and began to run away. Moments later, shots were fired.
Brooks was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
Rolfe has been charged with murder by a crooked DA who has a lot of problems of his own right now, and is using the case to win an election.
After you watch the footage, ask yourself if the cop murdered Brooks. Ask yourself why would a man who intended to murder someone be trying to save his life after the shooting? It doesn’t add up.
As you will see, the officers did everything by the book. What happened was at the fault of Rayshard Brooks, not the police.
While there were angry shouts and accusations from people watching nearby, Rolfe can be clearly heard pleading, ‘Mr. Brooks keep breathing. Keep breathing for me.’
The bodycam footage, though bouncing around, captures him kneeling on the ground and giving Brooks CPR as Brosnan looks on.
Rolfe can be seen in the video administering CPR to Brooks until the ambulance arrived, and he can be heard repeatedly calling our Brooks’ name as he tried to keep him alive.
DailyMail.com has also learned that Rolfe has since told friends that he didn’t want to pull the trigger but did so because he feared that he ‘went down’ Brooks might kill him.
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com one close to Rolfe said, ‘Garret didn’t want to do it. He had been punched and was dazed. Brooks had gone to tase him and he said that he knew that if he went down Brooks might kill him.’
Rolfe was injured from a punch landed by Brooks during the scuffle that broke out when Rolfe tried to cuff him. The former officer was briefly felled and did not know where his fellow officer Devin Brosnan, 26, was at that moment.
The mainstream media quickly took the side of the victims and crucified the cops, but a new video shows that the police officers weren’t doing anything wrong!
Brooks was caught on camera wrestling with police and resisting arrest.
He was shot dead after he took the officer’s taser gun and fled down the street and fired the taser at police.
Here is the video.
Brooks was fighting two police officers.
The new full bodycam video indeed shows that the police did everything in their power to keep calm and control the situation.
It’s when Brooks became violent, beat the police, and then fired the taser at police that he ended up dead.
2018 Justice Dept. statistics:
2018 violent crime incidents = 4,145,300
white on black incidents = 59,777
black on white incidents= 547,948
Now factor in that blacks only comprise 13% of the population, blacks are overwhelmingly more likely to commit a violent crime against whites than vice versa.
