BREAKING: Fulton County DA charging Atlanta officer who shot Rayshard Brooks with MURDER

The Fulton County DA Paul Howard has just announced that he’s charging the now-fired police officer in Atlanta, Garrett Rolfe, who shot Rayshard Brooks in self-defense with felony murder:

The DA is pulling out all the technicalities he can in order to justify this ridiculous murder charge:

He’s also claiming that the other officer who was involved in trying to arrest Brooks has become a states witness and will be releasing a statement against his partner:

Howard accuses Rolfe of kicking Brooks while he was on the ground fighting for his life, showing a picture to prove his claim:

Is it possible Rolfe and Brosnan made some mistakes while trying to restrain Brooks? Sure. If he actually kicked him while laying on the ground dying, as the DA suggests, that won’t be a good thing. But I suspect there’s probably more to this story. And remember, things were happening at a super fast pace. From what I could see Rolfe acted appropriately and responsibly given the threat against him and this murder charge is despicable.
