ATLANTA — A police officer in Atlanta shot and killed a man Friday night after a sobriety test at a Wendy’s, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, WSB reports.
Police have identified the victim as 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks.

Officers say they got a call about a man in the drive-thru line. Investigators claim Brooks was asleep in his car when police arrived around 10:33 p.m.
Police say he failed a sobriety test shortly after. When police tried to take Brooks into custody, police say he resisted arrest.

Officers reportedly tried to use a taser on him, but Brooks is accused of grabbing the taser and using the weapon on an officer.
“During the arrest, the male subject resisted and a struggle ensued. The officer deployed a Taser. Witnesses report that during the struggle the male subject grabbed and was in possession of the Taser,” the GBI said. “It has also been reported that the male subject was shot by an officer in the struggle over the Taser.”

Police opened fire on Brooks who later died at the hospital.
One officer who was injured has since been released from the hospital.

GBI [Georgia Bureau of Investigation] is investigating the shooting at the request of Atlanta police.
“The GBI is aware that there is video posted on social media captured by witnesses in this incident. We are reviewing the video & the early investigative information in this case. We’ll provide an update as soon as we can,” a GBI tweet said.

However, district attorney Paul Howard said his office also has opened an independent investigation.
“In this matter, we are asking for the cooperation of the public. We are asking anyone who saw the incident to call the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office Tip Line at (404) 612-4903 and if they wish to email any information, still photos, and/or videos we ask that they do so by sending it to Donald.Hannah@fultoncountyga.gov,” Howard said in a statement.

*SIGH*...

It just doesn't end.



At this time, black rioters have blocked the highways in Atlanta with cars, stopping traffic, and have burned down the Wendy's where this guy was pulled over for drunk driving, was tested as intoxicated, resisted arrest, grabbed an officer's taser, ran away, turned and pointed the taser at police, and was shot.

What exactly did the officers do wrong?

The mayor has already thrown the officers under the bus to appease the mob, before any investigation has been done, and called for the officers to be fired.
The police chief has quit, no explanation given yet. I could envision it being because of being politically prevented from a proper investigation and doing the right thing, for political reasons only. Or just stepping away from being offered up as the scapegoated sacrificial lamb for the next few weeks and months.

When the GBI is stepping in, the Georgia State Bureau of Investigation, for an independent investigation, sidestepping the locals, I fail to see the need for rioting and arsson, aside from advancing the goals of a terror campaign by Black Lives Matter and Antifa.


At present, the Wendy's is completely engulfed in flames, and the protestors/rioters are preventing firefighters from reaching the Wendy's and putting out the fire. The fire is in danger of exploding a gas station right next door if not put out. This again looks like an organized leftist strategy, not something spur of the moment done by a few pissed-off locals.

The shooting happened last night (Friday night), there were peaceful demonstrations during the day today (Saturday) and the violence began as soon as it got dark.

It follows the same pattern as Minneapolis, Seattle, New York City, Miami, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Houston...

Mark Levin on his program Life Liberty Levin at 9 PM on Fox News, interviewed two black university professors, and I thought gave a splendid counter-argument to the lying narrative that the U.S. is inherently racist, or that racial injustice exists. Examples were given in a contrast of black and white incomes, or in police treatment of blacks vs. whites. Some great statistics and insights. That blacks are primarily concentrated nationally in the South, where incomes are lower across the board, regardless of color, as is the cost of living in those high-wage regions.
I have an aunt who was a college professor in rural western Pennsylvania, and then took a job at California State University Los Angeles, where she was excited to be getting a $20,000 a year more in salary. But with the difference in cost of living in California, she said she was pretty mucch earning the same as in Pennsylvania.

If you want to see it, it repeats at 11 PM, and maybe can be seen after on Youtube, Netflix, Hulu or Foxnation.

Carol Swain was the first college professor, I didn't recognize the second male professor. Both had good insights, I think the second in the latter half had greater statistics. For example, blacks are targeted more often by law enforcement because they commit 2 adnn a half more crimes, as measured by black residents calling 911 for help. Blacks are less cooperative and resistant to police, which results in an escalation of force by police against them. Police are 18 times more likely to be killed by an unarmed black suspect, than a black suspect is to be killed by a police officer. White officers actually are less likely to shoot a black suspect, being more sensitive to the potential accusation that their shooting could be alleged to be racially motivated.
That against the allegations of a "white racist system", there is a higher ratio of millionaaires among Indonesians, Nigerians and immigrants from thirrd worldd nations than there are blacks or whites!

Levin also did a history over the last 150 years all the times presidents of both parties have enlisted the National Guard against national uprisings to restore order, far from an unprecedented "authoritarian" power grab by Donald Trump as president. In many cases, such as in Little Rock in 1957, or to protect Martin Luther King Jr during his protest march to Selma in 1964, to protect minorities. Something that wouldn't have been done by multiple presidents of an alleged inherintly "racist" nation.

I like Levin's program on Sundays. And also the program directly after, The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, that has a more independent/populist viewpoint, and attempts to offer solutions instead of just demagoguery and partisan arguments.

You have to really strain to find it, but Rayshard Brooks was a criminal thug with a long rap sheet, including beating and terrorizing his own wife and children. He was on parole for domestic violence against his family, and the DUI arrest would have put him right back in jail for a long time.

Does Rayshard Brooks have a criminal history?

Brooks had previously been convicted of False Imprisonment, Simple Battery/Family, Battery Simple and Felony Cruelty/Cruelty to Children, the Daily Mail reported.
He had reportedly pleaded guilty to charges dating back to August 2014.
The dad-of-four was sentenced to one year in prison and six on probation for one count, and 12 months for each of the three other counts.

After a revised sentencing, he was sent back to prison in July 2016.
In December 2019, a warrant was issued for his arrest, which was revoked a month later.

Was Rayshard Brooks on probation the night he was shot?

Reports indicate Brooks was on probation the night of his death.
Documents cited by the Mail indicate Brooks would have been jailed if he was arrested for a DUI.

The sobriety test Rolfe and Brosnan administered registered Brooks' blood-alcohol level at .108 percent.
The legal limit is .08.
An autopsy by the Fulton County Medical Examiner ruled Brooks' death a homicide.


So often, I have to find the facts in a British paper, because the American media just won't report the facts. And not just the liberal media, but Fox News as well is, I guess, too afraid of being labelled "racist" or "white supremacist" if they just report the facts.

From the Youtube comments on today's (Wed, 6-17-2020) episode of The Five...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKELICbLuU4

...this one comment summed it up quite succinctly:

"How do you find justice for 3 little girls who will never see their father again..."
Seems to me we just found justice for this little girl. This "loving father" was convicted of beating her and her brothers/sisters and mothers. Also, of KIDNAPPING them. Drug sales. Drug use. A host of other charges as well. this little girl is now SAFE from her father for the rest of her life. Seems like justice to me.

"Tamika Miller is a mother, a daughter, and another human being just like you."
Yeah, and it seems she understands that while she testified against this guy to put him away where he couldn't further risk her or her daughter's lives, she has just won the "Ghetto Lottery" - all she has to do is rehabilitate this guy in the eyes of the public and a jury. This is utter bullshit.

Even the case of George Floyd, which I think is univerally seen, even by police, as a police-caused death with absolutely no justification that should never have happened, Floyd was a five-time convicted felon, most recently for home invasion in 2007.
And the caller who reported Floyd in a store was not only for the counterfeit 20-dollar bill, but because he was visibly high. I've still seen no detailing of what happened between that police call and his encounter with the four officers. Although once he was down and in handcuffs, he should just have been put in the squad car and booked. But the media strains not to mention Floyd's criminal history or any resistance of confrontation that might have escalated the situation. Quite the opposite, despite his criminal history, the media and politicians selectively omit his history, and portray him as a saint.

There was mention in one story by Harris Faulkner today on her 1 PM program, of the death of Breonna Taylor, that I had to look up to know what it was about:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Breonna_Taylor

A late night no-knock warrant by Louisville, Kentucky police, in search of drugs related to a former boyfriend of Breonna Taylor's. Taylor was a 26-year-old paramedic. Her and her new boyfriend apparently thought it was a home invasion and not police, and both opened fire on the police with their licensed guns when officers barged into the apartment.
There are a lot of questionss I have from the above linked account, of the actions of both the officers and of both Taylor and her boyfriend. If the officers announced themselves as police, why would Taylor and her boyfriend open fire on them? It's possible the police identified themselves, but because Taylor and her boyfriend were hostile to police (or involved in drug trafficking as triggered the police raid) they opened fire anyway. It's also possible the police lied and didn't identify themselves despite saying they did in their officeal report.

Again, I see the jumping to conclusions, assuming this is an example of police racism toward blacks. But years ago, I cited a Reader's Digest article on police warrants and raids (no-knock or otherwise) where people of all colors have been victims of this.
And the frustration is, sometimes police get a wrong tip, or a malicious tip, or there is an error and they do a raid on the wrong house. And if someone believing a raid on their house is a home invasion and uses a gun to defend themselves, and police shoot them or their family members dead, there is no liability or prosecution of the police. In police terms, it's a justified shooting because the officers were fired on, despite the lack of justification for entering the home.

This happens to people of ALL races, not just blacks. Not as part of the Left's alleged police "war on blacks". But the Left uses it to elevate racial hostility, for their own political purposes.

I cited one related to Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconson a few years ago, where the Democrat opposition deliberately called in a malicious tip on Walker's campaign staff, that could have gotten one of his campaaign staff killed, just to maliciously harass him.
And also how Democrat D.A.'s issue gag orders, where if the campaaign staffer talks aabout the incident to the media about the abuse of power, they will be guilty of further "crimes". Yet another example of the Democrat/Bolshevik weaponization against their political opponents.
