A white police officer could face the death penalty after he was charged in connection with the death of a violent suspect in the parking lot of a Wendy’s restaurant in Atlanta.
Garrett Rolfe, the Atlanta police officer fired after the killing of Rayshard Brooks last week, now faces 11 charges including felony murder, which could potentially lead to the death penalty, a Georgia district attorney announced Wednesday. Officer Devin Brosnan, is facing three charges, including aggravated assault.
Brooks was killed after he brutally attacked both officers, stole one of their tasers and took off on foot. Rolfe chased after Brooks as he turned around and fired the stolen taser at the officer. At that point Rolfe returned fire.
“Even though Mr. Brooks was slightly impaired, his demeanor during this incident was almost jovial,” District Attorney Paul Howard said. “For 41 minutes and 17 seconds he followed every instruction, he answered the questions. Mr. Brooks never displayed any aggressive behavior during the 41 minutes and 17 seconds.”

This is an absolute travesty. Democrats say this is about race – and I’m beginning to suspect they may be right.
A black mayor ordered the white police officer fired without even so much as an investigation. And now an embattled black district attorney wants this law abiding police officer held without bail.
It’s time for every Atlanta police officer to walk off the job in protest. Let Mayor Lance-Bottoms and her cronies in Black Lives Matter patrol the streets of the city.
