No Charges Against Cops In Rayshard Brooks Shooting

Prosecutors in Georgia say two officers accused of murdering a Black man during a traffic stop in 2020 had reasonable cause.  Rayshard Brooks fell asleep in the drive thru of a Wendy’s in Atlanta. When officers arrived, the situation led to Brooks resisting arrest, which resulted in Officer Garrett Rolfe shooting and killing Brooks. Prosecutor Pete Skandalakis said Officer Rolfe and Officer Devin Brosnan acted in the best way they could and were protecting themselves from harm. Skandalakis said the decision to not charge the officers is “the right one.”
