The Cop that shot Brooks was charged with murder before any investigation was made. The other cop is facing charges too and is being pressured to testify against his partner. Race is trying to be interjected into this and it is true. The race is coming straight from a Black DA who is sacrificing these cops for his political future.
They will never get this cop for murder, they will have trouble getting a manslaughter charge. The incident was directly caused by the victim. The DA has charged cops in another case for using deadly weapon: taser. Now he is claiming taser is not a weapon. This case should be thrown out of court for prosecutorial misconduct. He has been declared guilty by the DA and the verdict has been broadcast by the MSM. When this blows up and these cops are given just treatment then we will have Riot&Looting 2, the sequel. The George Floyd video leaves nothing to question, neither does this one.
Cops are not guilty. The politics & politicians need taken out of justice system. This DA should be disbarred for civil rights violations. We will see the real privilege today is Black, Brown and Democrat.

This is beyond ridiculous. I'd have shot him too. He could have tased me and taken my weapon. Tasers HURT! The electrodes and the darts are barbed. Dang things smart when they're pulled out. I hit my knees and I kept getting shocked because I wouldn't get prone. Heck, I couldn't every time I moved to do that I got zapped again. 5 times I got hit. The only saving grace was I didn't pee myself or cry. I wanted to, but didn't...

Difficult to imagine a conviction on this one. Brooks was paroled for the Covid19 scare, he was serving 7 years for beating his child. Drunk, passed out in the Drive-thru at Wendys. SOOOO, we have...

Violation of Parole
DUI/Actual Physical Control
Very likely driving without a license, having just been released from prison.
Failure to Comply
Resisting Arrest with Violence
Assaulting a Police Officer

Then he stole the officer's taser, and pointed/fired it at him. And, there has been how many cops killed in the last 2 weeks? The majority of which were killed by blacks. He signed his own death warrant. It is clearly a justifiable shoot, the taser knocks the cop down and incapacitates him, suspect can take his pistol. It poses a threat to his life whether lethal itself or not, and if improperly used, it's my understanding that it can be lethal.

Charged with murder he'll definitely walk; as was the case in the Eric Garner trial, it is impossible to prove intent on the officer's part. In this case, he was defending his life.

Very likely Chauvin and company will walk on the charges in the Floyd case for the same reason. They could have been charged with Murder 3 in Minnesota, and the case was a slam dunk by proving 'depraved indifference'. But, Ellison elected to charge them with Murder 2, now he has to prove their intent was to kill the man, which he'll never do.

Look for speedy trials, 'Not Guilty' verdicts reached somewhere around Oct 30, 2020.

We don’t have a “race” problem, we have a “people who think they can resist arrest” because of “race” problem.

Deadly force for failing a sobriety test and running and then being shot in the back leaves a few questions that need to be addressed. Having been a Grand Jury Foreman it will be interesting to see if there is an indictment. One thing for sure the officer picked a wrong time with current events to make the decision in an instant that I would not consider premeditated or 1st degree murder.

Oct 2020? Just in time for election, It should be jockeyed out of that time frame. They know there is going to be hell to pay when these cops walk. I didn’t know Brooks was on parole. It seems that all the troubles are caused by hood rats that Liberals, BLM and MSM make out as pillars of society. Big casino for another hutch of hood rats. Gold teeth and Popeye Chicken, no more Wendy’s for them. Oh, the Wendy’s burnt down, I forgot.

I believe that here in Venice you can still hear the echo of the woods administered by U.S MP on drunken soldiers, in free exit in town, who were resistant to arrest, regardless of the color of the MPs and of the arrested. and regardless of the point hit, which MPs could not care less. the loud crack was as impressive as it was effective, but no wrestling, no strangulation, no guns, no tasers, no reported deaths.

DUI. fighting with cops. taking a weapon from cop. evading and firing taser at cop. all of this from a convicted felon. How many good people do you know that pass out in a drive thru lane at Wendy's. He was clearly a thug who thought he could get away and not pay the price for his actions. The friendly attitude was just a act.you have to remember that he is a con.

the president was on Hannity last night and said the cops lawyer said he heard a pop and saw a flash of light and that caused him to shoot. kind of interesting, but I doubt that will fly. they have charged this cop with murder so fast hoping to avoid the burning of Atlanta and because they are a bunch of raciest trash! they should have investigated this first! or at least pretended to! that being said, with the current events there is no way on earth that cop should have shot him in the back running away! in my humble opinion at the point he was killed he was no immediate threat to that cop. just think how many other people that have been shot in the back and killed by the cops and the cops walked. it has been at a boiling point for a long time, you can't just keep beating and killing people and violating rights but so long before they fight back, no doubt he was a thug! but shoot him in the back running away???

I have not been shot with a taser, and don't want to be. But, I believe that it will not kill me. Like pepper spray, it is considered non-lethal. I have not been in law enforcement. So, I don't know what officers have to contend with. It just seems like this situation could have been handled better. How threatening could he had been? They knew where he lived. If he had gotten away, maybe, a house call could have worked? But, I suspect that a drunk would have gotten tired after a short run.

No, deadly force for what came "after" failing the sobriety test; assault of, and attempted murder of, a police officer. In the DA's own words that will come back to haunt him, tasers are deadly weapons.

Tasers have killed people, but not very often. What it does do is render you a limp noodle, and at the mercy of the perp. He knew he was going back to prison for violation of parole. He was on the run at that point with a taser. The general public was at his mercy. Carjacking comes to mind.

On this one, I gotta go with the cop! Everything was cordial/respectful on both sides UNTIL the bad guy made it different! The BG decided to not comply with being arrested...decided to resist...decided to fight with the cops...decided to take the cop's taser...decided to run from the cops...decided to turn and fire a deadly/possible deadly weapon at the cops!!!! The bullets just happened to strike the BG because he was bladed while firing the taser! He was a fleeing felon who just assaulted two police officers and chose fire a weapon at the cops! WHAT IF the officer HAD BEEN struck with the taser and collapsed hittin' his head killing or incapacitating him and the perp walked back and removed his gun and killed him? Tough excrement! You don't want to be shot, don't bring a taser to a gun fight! No tears from here! DEFINITELY NOT a murder charge! The cop will NOT be convicted of that charge IMO! And, as usual, the perp (convicted felon for beating his kids and out on parole) will be escalated to martyrdom! Gimme a break!
