Atlanta Police Chief Ericka Shields has resigned after a police officer shot and killed a black man last night. Rayshard Brooks was being stopped on a routine stop and fought and struggled until the police officers felt they had no choice but to shoot Brooks.
“Because of her desire that Atlanta be a model of what meaningful reform should look like across this country, Chief Shields has offered to immediately step aside as police chief so that the city may move forward with urgency and rebuilding the trust that is desperately needed throughout our communities,” Mayor Bottoms said Saturday.
Shields commented on the charges against the officers.
” criminal charges filed against them by Fulton District Attorney Paul Howard was “a tsunami of political jockeying during an election year.”
Democrats are once again complaining of police brutality but clear evidence shows Brooks fighting with the police and walking towards them in a threatening manner.
Has all of the media coverage glorifying anti cop propaganda added fuel to the fire and now people are more inclined than ever to disrespect and fight the police?
