Rayshard Brooks was killed by police on Friday night after being questioned about sleeping in his car near a Wendy’s drive-thru. His death was completely caught on camera, leading to an uproar amongst citizens in Georgia. His death comes amid ongoing police brutality protests all across the United States, and people are making sure he gets justice.
Recently, the two cops involved in the shooting, Garrett Rolfe and Devin Brosnan, were brought up on charges. Today, both cops turned themselves in, although Brosnan was later released on a $50,000 bond. Brosnan is facing lesser charges as he isn’t the one who shot his gun. Instead, he has been charged with aggravated assault and three counts of violation of oath
Meanwhile, Rolfe is being held without bail and is facing felony murder as well as 10 other charges. At this point, it remains to be seen what will happen with the case although today on MSNBC, Brosnan and his lawyer went on live television and explained that they would be cooperating with authorities to the full extent of the law. Brosnan also alleges he got a concussion and wasn’t aware of what was happening.
