I’m seeing a lot of people defending Rayshard Brooks and attempting to justify the fact that he drove drunk, assaulted two cops, took their taser, and tased one of them from just a few feet away, by using the “muh tasers aren’t deadly” argument. I just wanna take this time to remind people that rocks aren’t considered deadly either, but it sure didn’t stop Emmanuel Lopes from throwing a rock at Weymouth Police Officer Michael Chesna, which incapacitated him and allowed Lopes to steal his gun and murder both Chesna and an elderly woman in cold blood.
Chesna saw Lopes in the side yard of a home on Burton Terrace, throwing a large decorative rock into a kitchen window, according to police. A neighbor later told police that Chesna got out of his cruiser, and was standing in the middle of the street when Lopes picked up a large rock and hurled it directly at the officer, who was 10 to 12 feet away. Police reported the neighbor told officers the rock thrown by Lopes struck Chesna in the head and his gun fell out of his hand while being knocked to the ground. Lopes then picked up the gun, stood over Chesna, and fired approximately 10 shots that struck his head, torso and legs, according to police.
When Rayshard Brooks pointed the cop’s stolen taser at the other cop and shot it could no longer be assumed that he wasn’t trying to kill them. The video speaks for itself, and it’s mind boggling that people are trying to argue otherwise.
GBI released video that shows the moment Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by an Atlanta Police officer at a Wendys on University Ave last night. Police say Brooks had taken an officer's taser and pointed it at the officer as he ran. pic.twitter.com/1G8fn03gFV

“But he was running away.”
He was running WHILE he was shooting a taser at a cop. Here’s the moment you can see him turn around, point the taser at the cop, and fire.
Literally feet away. If he hits the cop in the face and incapacitates him then he can easily take the gun and shoot him.
Prior to that the cops were polite and respectful to him, but the moment he found out he was going to jail for drunk driving he immediately became violent.
Here’s the full video. Cops were polite, reasonable. Brooks assaulted them, stole a taser, shot the taser at them multiple times, and finally was killed. If you’re trying to make these cops into racist killers, you’re just a dishonest person.

Drunk driving in and of itself is an act of violence. Just ask any of the millions of people who have lost loved ones at the hands of drunk drivers. Keep defending this piece of shit, I’ll be supporting the police when justified shootings like this go down.
