I hope they're ready for the riots when he gets acquitted.

That would be in January or February. Not a very hospitable time of the year for rioting.

We are talking about Georgia. Weather is a bit more clement down there than in most of the country.

It's Atlanta. The average high in January in Atlanta is in the low 50s. Wear a hoodie, rob a store.

This sends a message to anyone one that they can resist. Then when they get shot their families can sue for 3 millions dollars while police who were doing their jobs lose theirs and will never be rehired.

This was not murder. This was a tragedy that would never had happened had he just...complied. He would still be alive.

Floyd. He resisted in the SUV. He resisted before the SUV. Then a tragedy happens, BASED on the actions of the perp not the cop, and he is dead and 4 cops charged. The more I have removed emotion the more i do not even think the cop should be charged at this point. He did not kill that man.

Tired of this #...tired tired tired. I think it is time to take over a few city blocks in my local town and set up whore houses and topless bars. Free Zone Party Palace why not.....

And now we see how openly willing politicians are to hang a person to appease the mob.

Pathetic.

Assault 2 officers, steal a taser and run. He could have kept running and still be alive but when he turned to use that taser he decided his own fate. The end.
. YES, THIS👆🏼......TY! Perfectly said, as did another poster above, about this case being a more cut & dry case, then the Floyd case.....

Wherever you land on this politically, logically or otherwise ... you know what this is.

Fuel for the fire.

I wouldn't bet a copper plated zinc penny on any politician.
Now what will be very interesting is to see what sticks...

If im being honest, i need to see the trial. There habe been some arguments presented that i hadnt considered that really soften my views in this. Im not thinking a conviction will happen.

More fuel.

The civil case lawyers are already lining up, it's going to cost this cop and the city of Atlanta a lot.

Allow open liquor containers and smoking whatever you want in public and we are there! Clothing is optional too...

Whatever happens, in the long run, justice hasn't been and is not going to be served.

Whichever way the trial goes, a large portion of us will absolutely lose more faith in the justice system, and will be further set against the other "side."

They're not even trying to be subtle with this crap any more.

Fully understand. I think he is fully, entirely, and completely justified by law in shooting given the totality of the circumstances. The DA mentioned that he should have known the taser had been fired twice and was therefore empty. If it was fired twice, I’ve completely missed the first one. I saw a drive stun and one taser shot made by brooks. Never saw the first officer shoot it.

Was his decision to shoot a wise decision is a different question. But, no matter how much the DA may wish it otherwise, the court is there to decide whether his decision was legal or not legal, not whether it was good for optics.

Thank you for posting that. It appears that this part of the video has been deleted from many sources. That's unfortunate.

From what I've read so far, it seems that in the DA's mind, the matter of the shooting itself has been aggravated by the amount of time that Brooks wasn't rendered aid coupled with his relatively quiet demeanor during the time before the altercation.

Also, apparently, they didn't inform him what he was being charged with. That seems like a technicality given that he was actively resisting arrest.

There's no justice here for anyone.

This is the biggest problem, imo. Prosecutors try cases that are out of reach.

Then it looks like justice wasn't served.

Intentional?
