Georgia's TASER problem:
Is it a "deadly weapon" as in this case when used only by the police?

Or is it NOT a deadly weapon when stolen from a police officer then fired at him?

The DA overcharged IMHO to earn attention dollars. He will lose both of these cases and Sherman will be smiling at the inferno.

Champion said he worried that the Atlanta officers were not getting due process and the charges in the Brooks case seemed politically motivated. He noted that Howard recently charged four officers with aggravated assault after a viral video showed a group of officers shattering the windows of a sedan and Tasing two Black college students inside.

“The D.A. says a Taser’s a deadly weapon,” he said. “Well, then it was a deadly weapon when Mr. Brooks pointed it at a police officer.”

I wonder if that's the long game. Overcharge knowing they don't have the evidence needed to convict, jury acquits the officers, DA can shrug his shoulders and say "The system works most of the time, but sometimes we get results we do not like.", officers get back pay and jobs if they want it.

The town hopes the news of the officers' acquittals are buried in that day's news cycle to spare the town from being burned down.

Whoa, Nelly. If what Brosnan's (the second officer) lawyer said about his client's taser being taken and discharged by Brooks during the scuffle at Brosnan (& hitting him, then causing a concussion) we have an entirely new discussion about the validity of the shooting and the DA's charging (of both officers).

If this statement is true (and can be verified somehow), there is no way the charges on either officer will stand.

shipwreckedcrew at RedState has an excellent article:

The stuff about Brosnan, the taser, concussion, and actions of the officers after the shooting are in the second half of the article.

This will be interesting. And if Atlanta burns a third time (the first being Sherman), it's all on the DA.

BTW, shipwreckedcrew also writes quite helpfully about the Flynn case....

Atlanta Detective Sides With Officer In Defense Filing For Rayshard Brooks Case, Says Brooks Would’ve Been Charged On 10 Counts



“My investigation showed that [Rayshard] Brooks’s behavior did in fact warrant several federal charges, but before I was able to pursue those charges, I was informed that [Rayshard] Brooks had died, negating the necessity for that portion of my investigation,” he added.

Hogan then lays out ten charges he says he would have sought against Brooks:

  1. DUI/DUI Less Safe, a violation of OCGA 40-6-391
  2. Felony Obstruction, Two counts, a violation of OCGA 16-10-24
  3. Aggravated Assault against a Police Officer, Two Counts, a violation of OCGA 16-5-21
  4. Battery against a Police Officer, Two counts, a violation of OCGA 16-5-23.1
  5. Theft by Taking, a violation of OCGA 16-8-2
  6. Removal of Weapon from a Public Official, a violation of 16-10-33
  7. Robbery, a violation of OCGA 16-8-40.1
As reported by AJC, attorneys for the former officer, Noah Pines and Bill Thomas, have filed a motion seeking reasonable bond for their client. Pines and Thomas maintain in the motion that if Rolfe had reason to believe Brooks committed a crime involving the “infliction” or “threatened infliction” of “serious physical harm,” he was justified in using deadly force.

Is it time to get tough with the mobs and stop the rioting or time to get tough with police and virtually say the rioting is getting the response the mob wants.
What is it the mob wants.?

Basically they want to remove by mob violence any semblance of order.
They want the country run by mob violence. So far that is what is happening.
One day violence will be met by violence and on that day the SWHTF.

Cops do not automatically take you in for DUI. Last summer in the outer banks a car that I was in was pulled over for speeding ( right after the county had dropped the speed limit on 12 ) . The officer smelled beer on the driver and gave a field sobriety test he apparently was one point over . The officer then asked if any one felt that they were ok to drive I said that I was, he checked my license and had me do the test also . Mentioned to me that the driver was "a little over " and he didn't feel good with letting him drive I drove us to dinner . It was amazing how courteous this officer was .
because he didn't pull him over for suspected DUI and he was a little over. Which says the driver was alert and capable, but the officer didn't feel comfortable. The other part is that there was a driver available to take over.
Totally different situation.
In the Atlanta case the guy was behind the wheel, in the drive thru lane, passed out.
The cops treated him well until he decided he didn't want to take the ride to jail.
They are not charged with being a taxi or paying for a ride home.
The routine practice is to take the DUI to the station, book and release - if a family member or friend agrees to take them home.

Did you have a difficult time digesting my post ? Or just extra time on your hands right now ?
