We must have been watching the wrong video.
It appeared Brooks fought with police, punched them in the face, stole their taser gun and fired on the police officers.
A second video of the shooting shows Rashard Brooks pointing the stolen taser gun at police.
From the video Centermillennieals.
You can see the guy pointed something at the cop and that’s what got him killed. It may be the taser, it may be the gun from our perspective. It’s more logical that it would be the taser, so eminent threat was absolutely triggered by this event. Unfortunately it had to go down like this, because two times he risked the officers lives. This goes to show angles are extremely important in situations like this.

The first officer has turned state’s witness against the officer who fired his gun at Brooks.

The officer in the Brooks case is charged with, among other things, felony murder?  Potential sentence of death, life without parole, or life with possibility of parole if convicted.  And this DA is, again, trying his case in front of the press.  I am shocked.
