Black Georgia Sheriff says shooting of Rayshard Brooks by Atlanta Police was "completely justified'
Fox News: "Sheriff Alfonzo Williams argued Tuesday that Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe was "completely justified" in using lethal force against 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, whose death has sparked a new round of protests and controversy over policing and racial discrimination in the U.S."
"Five seconds; 1,001, 1,002, 1,003, 1,004, 1,005. That's five whole seconds [when] if an officer is hit with that Taser that he, all of his muscles will be locked up and he'll have the inability to move and to respond. And yet he is still responsible for every weapon on his belt.
"So, if that officer had been hit, he still has a firearm on his side and the likelihood of him being stomped in the head or having his firearm taken and used against him was a probability. And so he did what he needed to do. And this was a completely justified shooting.”
There it is.
It's a damned shame that Rayshard Brooks is dead.
And you can make a case that the Officer used excessive force.
But there's no question: He was defending himself ~ and the public ~ from a violent, raging drunk man, who had already assaulted a Police Officer, and who had just fired a taser at him.
To reiterate: Brooks had just fired the taser at the Police Officer.
I'm reading and hearing a lot of sewage about him pointing it.
He didn't point it. He fired it:
