Fox carried an hour plus long video of the “Family Attorneys” having a press conference about the incident.
I watched that before looking at the video of the actual shooting.
It’s amazing how contrived their version of events was and even more so that they could peddle it with a straight face.
Brooks was apparently passed out in his vehicle at a Wendy’s from drug/alcohol intoxication. Police are called because people are concerned.
They arrive and attempt to wake him and a fight breaks out.
To the professional outrage mob, this one isn’t going to go your way.
A prolonged struggle with two officers in which he wrestles a taser out of the hand of one officer and flees with it.
Not until he turns and either fires it at the closest pursuing officer or attempts to do so (you can see the flash) is he shot.
A cop can shoot a fleeing dangerous felon particularly when he is shooting or otherwise posing a significant threat to another officer or the public at large.
This shooting may or may not violate policy but legally the officer is probably on solid ground here.
In an asinine attempt at politicizing the event the Atlanta CoP resigned her position today in solidarity with something.
