Atlanta’s out of control after police shooting of a black man


The Atlanta police chief resigned after one of her officers shot and killed a black man running away after grabbing his taser and pointing it at an officer, possibly firing it. The officers at the scene had just been in a fight with the suspect trying to contain him as he resisted arrest.

Atlanta’s Police Chief Ericka Shields has voluntarily stepped down after the NAACP demanded it.

Atlanta resident Rayshard Brooks, 27, was shot by an officer during a struggle and died after surgery at a local hospital, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms called for the termination of the police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks on Friday.

“I do not believe this was a justified use of deadly force,” she said.

Do they have the right to use force if the accused is a white person? Just wondering.

Police won’t get a lot of support for defending themselves in dangerous situations in blue cities. Six officers were fired in Atlanta for using their tasers, which the officials called deadly force. Now, when the accused pulls a taser on an officer, they are saying the opposite. Basically, officers are told they can’t defend themselves.

This is the surveillance video:


Protesters are starting to go out of control. WSB Radio reports vandals were smashing windows at the Wendy’s in Atlanta – the scene of the shooting. Then they set it on fire.

They’re shutting down highways:

The protests are still active throughout blue cities in the nation and in London:

That was a justified shooting. We can’t expect our police officers to get attacked, have their tasers stolen and shot at them, and not respond. If that taser had incapacitated the officer, his gun would have been available and he could have died. If the man was willing to steal the taser, he was willing to steal the gun. A man just doing his job should not have to face death and never seeing his family again, because some drunk thug who fell asleep in his car decided to be a jerk. Attack the police, you don’t get to whine about what happens to you later.
