Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Jr. on Wednesday charged Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe with felony murder over the death of Rayshard Brooks, claiming the officer waited over two minutes to assist Brooks and kicked him.
Blurry photo evidence provided by the district attorney, does not indicate a kick.
Brooks, who fought police during a DUI arrest, grabbed an officers taser, ran and fired the taser at the pursuing police, who fired back.
Officers can be heard on tape after the shooting saying, “Mr. Brooks. Keep breathing. Mr. Brooks keep breathing for me.” This does not sound like police intent on denying assistance. CNN left this information out of their newscast.
