    Loss of life is always tragic. Let's break this video down and get all the facts out on the table.

I think a possible solution to all of these suspects so boldly resorting to resisting arrest should be to simply have a mandatory 3-6 month sentence any time someone resists arrest. The length can be determined by a judge based on the severity of the particular situation. Reducing resisting arrest is a key to making any interaction between the police & suspects a safer situation for everyone involved.

Did he give his opinion whether or not shooting Rashad was justifiable? Feel like he says in other videos what he thinks is the bottom line but in this video he did not state what his stance was

You know that Brooks is running faster than the officer and if the officer stops chasing the already drunk guy will get out of breath in 30 yards and fall on the ground, right. Can he tase the officer from 10 yard away? I don't thinks so. Then there is no danger. Totally unjustified shooting. At the moment the officer shot his weapon, the danger to his life is not even 1% in my opinion. Let the guy run fall on the ground then approach with you back up to apprehend him. But i guess that kind of training is not given to officers as if the only option in these situations is shooting a gun.

The part I am struggling with is that the taser wasn’t operable... and then there really was no reason to pursue him if you can’t catch him on foot. He didn’t have to die. They could’ve caught up to him at a later time. I think these young officers’ egos were bruised and they, in turn, acted on those feelings. The fact that mr Brooks was stood on and kicked while laying there dying- with bullets in his back, was enough to convince me.

Did the officers know the taser wasn't operable? I also agree that chasing after him was pointless. He was on probation so they could easily find him, and he was nowhere near his car to drive again. Why not just regroup and go arrest him later? That would be too reasonable, eh?

Shooting someone in the back who is running away from you is MURDER. Plain as day. Why didn’t they just come arrest him the following day (they had his car and knew where he lives)?

Mr. Brooks not only pointed a weapon at the officer's face that can turn to a fatality because of the proximity of which he was aiming, he fired the weapon. At that point, the officer pulled his weapon and returned fire.

I got a serious question. Does actively fleeing an arrest (on its own) justify shooting the suspect or is it taken into consideration as a compound factor when justifying the shooting of a suspect? To me fleeing is something that needs to be taken into account, relative to the initial crime. For e.g. A murder suspect. You probably don’t want them getting away, so I could understand the need to bring them down if they flee. A shoplifter on the other hand - probably not. Simply trying to avoid jail can’t be a justifiable reason to kill someone? surely? I know we’ve all watched the videos and made up our minds. Have to remind myself sometimes a suspect hasn’t actually been convicted of a crime, no matter what I think about the evidence. Arrest is only one step in the legal process. Most Cops deserve respect for the job they do. Cant be easy trying to assess everything in a fluid situation like that. Not sure they’re all equipped with the temperament to be judge, jury and executioner as well though?

No, I'm not even sure they're required to chase the suspect (like you said, he wasn't a murderer). They're allowed to shoot if the guy is armed and poses an imminent threat to their life which is why there is such debate about the taser being a deadly weapon or not (can be but usually isn't unless used improperly). In this case, if the officer doesn't chase him = no issues. Regroup and go pick him up later and pile all the charges on for resisting arrest, assaulting an officer, etc. He was actually on probation so they could easily find him. I think their judgment was horrible and their egos got the best of them.

The officer was over charged ...plain and simple. The only crime here was the man who assaulted 2 officers *and* took the officer's weapon *and* shot at the officer. People keep saying that at the moment the officer fired, Rayshard had already turned his back *willingfully ignoring that Rayshard had just fired the taser gun* ...this isnt the Flash. The ppl saying officer Rolfe should not have shot him, must clearly have superhuman speed.

I was completely against the cop that shot brooks because how calm and nice and respectful he was then it seemed in the end they shot him because he got the best of the officer but after this breakdown its clear why the officer shot him. Could he have gone about it differently sure but with everything explained and that split sec of judgment yhe officers had it seems to still be a justifiable situation i mean he did clearly fire the taser at the officers face so while its sad he didn't take a different approach and shot brooks I understand and don't think he shouldve been fired or considered responsible for s bad decision, and i can't stand most police lmao but this was a good breakdown and cleared things up

How about this: don’t fight the police! You do, and you die....too damn bad. Why are people so stupid that they think a police officer does not have the right to defend their own lives, their partners’ lives, or the lives of the public they are sworn to protect? Why can’t people get that through their heads. All these people saying cops should not use the level of force that they do...if that criminal kills their kid, they are gonna be the first to say some stuff like, ‘why was this felon out there running around with a gun’....when a week prior, they were saying something like, ‘it doesn’t matter if the guy tried to kill the cop, he should have tazed his foot, and not shot him!’ I have ZERO sympathy for ANYONE who is violent and tries to hurt a police officer, or who is even combative toward police....it should be a law that if you try to fight police, they should be ALLOWED to use ANY level of force necessary, period. Because if that is the case, PEOPLE WOULD STOP FIGHTING THE POLICE! And to all the idiots saying that police just go around killing black people, you folks need to do some research! 99% of ALL people killed by police, are killed trying to fight or kill the officer! George Floyd was killed, unjustifiably, 100%. But George Floyd was killed by that 1% of the bad cops on the job. And the police involved in that inception were arrested and are being prosecuted....if the police DO do something unlawful, fight it in court. Most police are required to wear body cameras, so if you are wronged, it is on camera and the cop will be held responsible. I get so tired of the anti-police, and anti-white crap going on anymore. Have you ever noticed, if you don’t break the law....police don’t bother you!?!????? Be a good human being, and no matter what race you are, you are gonna be okay. Most police officers are absolute great people...as are a lot of other humans...black, white, or what ever race...most people are good people. So why not just also be a good person, and the police will not bother you....imagine that!!

I don't want to be that guy but you're clearly biased. The 1st video of yours i watched was the Hakim Littleton one and even if I truly wanted to it's hard to argue when a guy pulls a gun on the police. However in this video you claimed to want to talk about the facts, what about the fact that cop shot into a car full of innocent bystanders. At the very least shouldn't that cop be arrested and put in prison for attempted murder? Now I bet any kind of money if I shot at a cop car, clearly nowhere near striking that cop with a bullet, you would argue that I should be in prison or the cop would be justified in shooting me. My problem with police always will be that they don't have the capacity to call out their fellow police officers and the proof of that is in this very video where you failed to mention that cop shooting into those bystanders car.

Really good video. Very well laid out. As someone who has had a close Friend Shot while Unarmed by 2 Sheriff's Deputy's, people need to understand the totality of every situation. I've been around Law enforcement for over 50 years. And those idiots who shot my friend? Just BAD Training. Simple as that. Just flat out stupid, crappy training. Yeah, they got away with Killing a Fine Man for NO REASON WHATSOEVER...so is that reason to Hate Police? Of course Not. VERY FEW, IF ANY Law Enforcement Shootings have ANYTHING TO DO WITH RACE....99.9 percent it's just Bad Training and Lack of Good Standards. Cops are Cops...Skin Color has Nothing to do with Anything. I've even had a Police Officer STEAL from my House! But it's Impossible to Screen out EVERY idiot. Some Always slip through and it Doesn't Matter what Profession your dealing with. The Problem is NOT with our Police, the Problem is a Society without Respect for others.

@SFLO the cop had already breathalysed him and so he knew he was intoxicated and he drove while intoxicated. Clearly Rayshard didn't want to be cuffed, but being cuffed shouldn't have come as a huge surprise he had broken the law. Though I take your point, maybe having that clearly explained to him that he was about to be cuffed might have helped. So maybe Rayshard just reacted and things escalated real quickly and if he had processed that he was about to be cuffed he would have been compliant. I'm sitting in my room and I have a lot of time to think about this but you have individuals who are reacting quickly with out that luxury. The cops weren't pricks before the incident and even Rayshard said I know you are just doing your job. Mistakes were made by both parties. Though having said that your point is valid.

Watched Joe Rogan and Louder with Crowder showing a choke hold, if the arm is not on the right part of the neck doesn't harm but it will not knock them out. Doing the choke hold right person is unconscious in a couple of seconds, in the beginning the officers had his arm around Brooks neck not sure if they are told not to do that technique or during the fighting doesn't allow for officer to use it effectively which is sad they would have had Brooks out and cuffed...done no one hurt or died. I thought that if that taser hit his head that could kill him or leave the officer brain damaged, but didn't think about if it hit the heart, both are deathly. I agree that falling to the ground is harmful, sad that Brooks is drunk with a record/probation felt his only choice was to make the wrong decision.

Thank you for this video. I have been waiting to hear if a taser is a deadly weapon or not. I agree it can be. I was trained to aim for center mass. Are police trained where they can shoot someone who is fleeing? We aren't trained to shoot people running away unless they are armed combatants. The taser is a gray area i guess. Impounding his car and sending him home on foot seems like a better option but that isn't the law currently.

The former DA (white woman) even dared to say on ABC News that Brooks was not running away at all and she was amidst black protesters (BLM) crying loud. So those kinds of people (mainstream media, local and national, are playing people's emotions politically-motivated, even DAs and mayor are doing that). Source: https://abc13.com/natalie-white-atlanta-wendys-arson/6257859/ (Youtube). So a district attorney is not always that reliable. Prejudice, racially profiled. Who is Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jane Barwick? Who she is got interesting after her opening of the case against officer Garret Rolfe. She addressed child molester's wife Tomika Miller (not his girlfriend Natalie White who set Wendy's Atlanta on fire) with the encouraging words she admired her courage to be there in court (via webcam). In my opinion, this can never be a fair trial. Garret Rolfe is already fired and his name and address is made public. His face is over and over all over the web and TV channels, promoting hatred. That man is hunted by BLM and TV channels, that man had a lot of damage experienced. He should be the one suing law enforcement, Jane Barwick, some media channels like 11Alive and Tomika Miller. Those are harassing and are threatening his life. #RayshardBrooks Judge denies document request in Abrams ethics investigation A judge (Jane Barwick) handed Democrat Stacey Abrams’ 2018 campaign for Georgia governor a victory in a legal skirmish Friday, denying a request from the state ethics commission for the campaign to hand over more records. https://federalnewsnetwork.com/government-news/2020/02/judge-denies-document-request-in-abrams-ethics-investigation/ She has ties with the Democrats that are abusing this for the upcoming elections in November. Lesbian judge wins, along with two anti-gay trolls A lesbian attorney became Fulton's newest Superior Court judge on Tuesday, the only highlight of an election night that included two anti-gay Republicans winning their primaries. https://www.projectq.us/atlanta/lesbian_judge_wins_along_with_two_anti_gay_trolls This article shows her hate for Republicans and her favor to Democrats again. And, she is into women. Natalie White is a woman, Tomika Miller is a woman. Did you see how Jane Barwick opened this trial? "Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jane Barwick thanked Miller for her bravery in addressing the court and said the bond decision is "not the ultimate issue in the case as to whether this defendant is guilty of these charges." Barwick ruled Rolfe is entitled to bond because he poses no flight risk or danger." https://www.cbsnews.com/news/rayshard-brooks-killing-officer-garrett-rolfe-released-bond/ And that judge is a lesbian and is using this to open a lawsuit? And she has to decide whether Rolfe faces a possible sentence of life or death penalty. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/rayshard-brooks-killing-officer-garrett-rolfe-released-bond/

@Amanda J Brooks was there because he'd been let out of prison due to covid. What's he do? Drink and drive. You know people get killed by drunk drivers right? You are on the wrong side of ethics "Wah, the police killed someone..." Meanwhile they killed a deadbeat POS who was ruining people everywhere he went. Their training? They took a drunk out from behind the wheel and patiently talked with him for nearly an hour (I watched the full 45 minute video). The real problem is that they didn't shoot him during the fight when they couldn't get ahold of him then. You have NO Idea what you are talking about because you speak from the perspective of an ivory tower. I speak from the perspective of a veteran of aghanistan trained to detain people. When someone gets in a fight with you your life depends on the chance of whether or not they knock you unconscience with one punch (You ever hear of someone being "One-punched"? It means being knocked out by one punch) which leaves you vulnerable to whatever they do next, ie: take your sidearm and kill you. Then there's also the reality that criminals fleeing will be pursued and in their desparation where Brooks was drunk, they don't think well (that's why they end up in prison - they have NO thought of consequence of action so they do idiotic stuff constantly) so at this point the likelihood they hurt another bystander or civilian at some point is quite high. But there's no reasoning with you because you are unreasonable. I hope my response has been eye opening but willful blindness can't respond well to the truth.

Hotel CharliHill okay people if you see that I am replying to this. Particular Comment... it is stated “bla bla bla he’s so drunk he don’t even know ...”. Mr brooks was explaining to the officers they they had disagreed over which place to go and eat. He was worried about the argument with his wife .. you can hear it. And I find it awful sad that these guys didn’t have the proper training and it ended this way. With four little girls without their father and a woman who will probably tear herself apart every day forever because their last words to each-other were spoken in anger over something so trivial. It’s a good reminder to us all that we never know when or if we get another chance. We should all be more kind to eachother and especially to the ones who love us most

Thanks for trying your best to clear this up. I have also watched the long, painful video and feel that this was an absolutely normal, even commendable police work until he suddenly used force. What happened then is extremely hard to judge - probably the officer must not have shot, but this is almost impossible to say for people who are not cops who risk their lives dails to keep the streets safe. I feel really bad for Rayshard Brooks who seemed a likeable, if somewhat slow thinking guy, but there must have been something going on in his mind that was very imprudent. Or why did he suddenly start to fight two police officers who had been extremely patient and fair in his pretty trivial misdemeanour until he suddenly decides to fight 2 armed officers.`This is dangerous in any country, not just USA. Maybe people should also get training how to deal with law enforcement forces, not just the other way around? RIP Rayshard Brooks, I wish I or anyone could have said something useful to you before you lost your required patience.

Even the DA in ATL recently said that a taser is a deadly weapon when he charged another officer with assault with a deadly weapon after an unjustified tasing.

I have seemingly always been told when approached by a Police Officer it is in my best interest to comply with their orders given. Mr. Brooks failed to do so. He also, attempted to fight with them, resist arrest, steal a taser, try and shoot an Officer and flee the area. Committing more felonies in each step that he took. There were other cars waiting in line at the Wendy's. So since he obviously did not value the Officer's lives by doing as he was instructed to do. Is it not possible that if he could have gotten to the last car in the line; perhaps he might have tried to steal it as a hostage and get-away vehicle. If he had not been shot instead? So i think in the interest of public safety the shooting should have been justified. As too many others could have been injured by his actions. Its an unfortunate outcome for all; but Mr. Brooks was at fault for not complying with the instructions given to him by the Police Officers involved.

I think that guy was so drunk that he also thought that he had a firearm which he pointed at an officer. This was extremely justified.

When someone is running away from you and they fire a tasr then all you got to do is just stop for a second. Let the taser discharge and then run up and beat the shit out of them for firring a taser at you. No way was this homicide justified

In watching understand this I get now the use of the get use of a gun but because of the taser can only go so far, couldn't the police officer gone for the legs instead of the back. In most cases, police are usually trained to use an appropriate level of force needed.

Apparently, the DA is saying that a police officer kicked Mr. Brooks, and another put his foot over his shoulder while he lied there dying. It's not looking good now, especially that the DA decided to file charges. This does not absolve Mr. Brooks from any responsibility, but I already had my doubt about the shooting, and their actions afterwards seem to be more incriminating. @BBU I admire and appreciate the work you're doing, but you have a steep uphill climb with what's going on nowadays.

All I ask everyone to do is go see the other video and you will learn these two FACTs... 1. He was RUNNING away and the taser he had was deployed TWICE already which the OFFICER KNEW... he could not harm anyone with it... 2. For over 40 minutes he was asking to be allowed to walk to his sister nearby.... there is a 3rd FACT we found out about the Officer who shot and killed him... will leave that alone for now...

What's the other video? And if all that is true, that Officer is toast. My instinct in watching it without knowing all that is that the officer was a pos lol cause Brooks was being compliant and the situation was very manageable.

I’m pretty sure mr brooks fires the taser at the officer, you can hear the discharge and the taser light up, which is why I’m guessing the officer escalated the use of force, otherwise why not have his firearm out during the foot chase.

Case law only apply in court. There is no case yet especially each case has its own law cannot apply for different situation and condition. Rule of thumb, never ever shoot in the back because there is NO THREAT of Life situation. If the police shot Brooks when he was fighting for a taser, this was legal. When he was running and he got shots in the back, this is illegal as a murder. A taser is classified as a weapon, but not a deadly weapon. As a matter of fact, Brooks already finished TWO shoots from the taser, rendered the taser useless. Talk about shoot in face or eyes, any one can poke in face or eyes with any object too. A knife and a gun are classified as deadly weapons by definition. The murder officer has been charged murder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_Ma8oQLmSM

A few points. Georgia law clearly states, " a person is justified in using force which is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm only if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent death or great bodily injury to himself or herself or a third person or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony." The Atlanta Police Department policy manual states, that officers may use deadly force if the suspect "possesses a deadly weapon or any object, device or instrument, which used offensively against a person, is likely to or actually does result in serious bodily injury when he or she reasonably believes that the suspect poses an immediate threat of serious bodily injury to the officer or others." Earlier this month, that same district attorney charged multiple police officers with aggravated assault after they tased someone. How is this relevant, you ask? Under Georgia law, aggravated assault is defined as, "an assault that is committed: with the intent to rob, rape or murder. with a deadly weapon or any object that can be or is used in a manner that results in serious bodily injury or strangulation." That means that a few weeks ago, the district attorney believed that tasers were deadly weapons. Continuing, a taser is not useless once it's been fired. It's called a drive stun. So you've got someone who just assaulted officers, stole and fired a weapon at them that the DA himself has admitted is a deadly weapon by way of the previous charges. He's proven himself to have no regard for human life by way of his fighting with the responding officers and firing at them. If you read the opinion of the Supreme Court in Graham v. Connor (1989), it says, "the question is whether the officers' actions are 'objectively reasonable' in light of the facts and circumstances confronting them, without regard to their underlying intent or motivation" and that "The "reasonableness" of a particular use of force must be judged from the perspective of a reasonable officer on the scene, rather than with the 20/20 vision of hindsight." This is absolutely a justified shooting, and the DA is dancing dangerously close to malicious prosecution. My concerns are that if he's convicted, it would be a gross miscarriage of justice and a verdict reached to prevent a social backlash and that if he's acquitted, that backlash will take place.

Sleeping in a parked vehicle is not a "DUI" by definition. There is no reason for the police stop, test, and arrest Brooks. Just right there the police is already made a mistake. Brooks was holding a taser and the taser is not considered as a "deadly weapon" by definition. Otherwise, the police should not use it too. The police shot Brooks in the back ONE time is for arrest and defense. The police shot Brooks second time and third time is a clear murder of a FIRST degree in the back as an Execution Style Murder. There was NO "life in threat condition" in this video.

He was not sleeping in his car. He was in the drive thru lane of the Wendy's and he was passed out due to being intoxicated. The he failed the field sobriety test and blew a .108 on the breathalyzer and the officer attempted to place him under arrest. He did discharge the taser at the office and the office fired three times, with two bullets striking Mr. Brooks. I feel this was justified, but we all have our own opinions. It will be determined in a court of law.

I keep hearing lawmakers wanting to adjust the laws that police must follow and I keep wondering why they don't involve police in these processes? These people don't know what it takes to be a cop or how strict these laws already are on them. Thank you for the break down and the logical review.

Floyd's case Anyone who has been throttled or strangled knows you can't move your head freely or really speak at all, if at all. Floyds voice was not muffled in the slightest and he clearly could breathe. But he said "he could not breathe" ... If you know something about science, you would know lack of O2 is not detected in brains ... Too much H2CO3 in blood is detected in brains ... He already said he could not breathe when he was standing ... So, it is clear,, he had hear problems before he was on the ground. Why are the videos of officers not given free? Ohh, elections more important than justice. USA, the country without justice, why blame cops only?

3 shots? Nonsense, clear murder. Why apologize this guy, while Floyd was a time-bomb? Read autopsy report, doubt you did. Read arrest warrant, doubt you did. But 3 shots, come on, absolute nonsense ..., just for alcohol, while Floyd was speed-balling ... Officers with Floyd were talking about excited delirium, made a mistake? OK. this cop as well, 3 shots, one shot was enough, or not even one shot. Taser fires only once ... You are hit or you are not hit ...

Several of Floyd’s key heart arteries were severely narrowed - evidence of serious heart disease. Several were 75% blocked and one was 90% blocked, and that was made worse by where the clogs occurred in terms of crimping the supply of blood to his heart, Nelson said. Blockages of 70% or more usually cause chest pain, he added. 90% ... Unbelievable. Detected Drugs: - Fentanyl 11 ng / ml - Norfentanyl 5.6 ng / ml - Metaamphetamine 19 ng / ml - Delta-9 Carboxes THC 42ng / ml - Cannabis - Amphetamine - Morphine 86 ng / ml Wow .... Content stomach?

Absolutely justified use of lethal force but was it worth the taking of a life? I personally don't think so but, that's probably a question best answered by Rayshard Brooks. Wittingly or unwittingly, Mr. Brooks determined the end result. RIP Dumbass

My opinion is that in this situation the officer who fired his weapon had backup. He could have used his taser and as a last resort his partner could have used his firearm. However I am not saying what the officer did was wrong, because the suspect did have a weapon, less than lethal but still weapon.
