Cop Kills Black Man Protesters Torch Wendy’s Restaurant

Scores of demonstrators turned out Saturday to protest the shooting. Late Saturday night, the Wendy’s in South Atlanta was set ablaze, and it was again engulfed in flames Sunday morning.

Reactions to the shooting centered around the belief that the incident did not call for deadly force. Within hours of the shooting, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stepped down from her post but will continue with the department in an undetermined role.

Radcliff Angus, who is Black and lives in Atlanta, said Sunday that he was “numb” when he first heard about the Brooks’ killing. He said he became frustrated when he brought himself to watch the video.

“All levels of police know this is an extremely volatile time,” said Angus, 42. “Bringing more force than necessary will result in this type of situation. There are other models of policing that do not require the most severe physical response.”

Attorney L. Chris Stewart, who represents the family of Rayshard Brooks (pic above), said training had failed. Two officers should have been able to control one man without shooting him, Stewart said. He wants the officer who shot Brooks charged with murder.

“A Taser is not a deadly weapon, it’s not like he was running off with a gun,” he said. The officer’s “life was not in immediate harm when he fired that shot, it just was not.”

U.S. Rep. James Enos Clyburn, D-S.C., the House Majority Whip, said he was incensed by the shooting, especially coming after weeks of protests demanding racial justice and an end to police brutality.

“This did not call for lethal force, and I don’t know what’s in the culture that would make this guy do that,” Clyburn said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union. “It’s got to be the culture, it’s got to be the system.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
