GBI: Charges Filed Against Cop, Even Though Investigation is not Finished

This is a stunning development – the Georgia Bureau of Investigation says they have not even finished the investigation of the shooting death involving the Atlanta police officers.

The GBI also says the Fulton County District Attorney did not alert them about today’s press conference and they were not consulted on the charges.

This is appalling. The GBI is in charge of the investigation. So how was the district attorney able to file felony charges when the investigation is not complete? Following is the GBI’s statement:

“The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was requested by the Atlanta Police Department on Friday night, June 12th, to investigate an officer involved shooting at the Wendy’s Restaurant on University Avenue. We are in the process of conducting this investigation. Although we have made significant progress in the case, we have not completed our work. Our goal in every officer involved shooting case we are requested to review, is to complete a thorough, impartial investigation before we submit the file to the respective District Attorney’s Office.

“The GBI was not aware of today’s press conference before it was conducted. We were not consulted on the charges filed by the District Attorney. Despite today’s occurrence, the GBI will complete its mission of completing an impartial and thorough investigation of this incident and we will submit the file, once completed, to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.”
