A black man in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Protest in other leagues followed suit The W N B a major league baseball, hockey and football college athletes marched on campus in solidarity with players trying to raise awareness on racism and police brutality. To talk about what's next. We're joined by the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks. Lloyd Pierce. Thank you for coming on the program. Thank you for having me so, Coach. I understand you have been in touch with Jacob Blakes. Father. Why was it important for you to reach out to him? The level of influence and access that we have as an association is really, really high and and so just the opportunity that was presented to us as coaches Our coaches association to connect with the family, I thought would be It's really impactful trying to figure out one out. They're all doing and to what we can do from a humanity standpoint, too. Really be there in support of the family. I have to ask emotionally. Did this shooting bring up feelings that you had back in June when the during the killing of Rashard Brooks in Atlanta? Every shooting as an emotional attachment, and I think every time you see another one, you know it brings you back. They just all add on and for people that are dealing with anxiety deep people are dealing with depression, people that are feeling like There's so much stress that's occurring. You can see how that comes about, you know, n Ba players sent a clear message this week that reverberated throughout the sports world. Beyond that the protests led to some concrete commitments for change. For instance, the Wisconsin Legislature committed to going into special session on police reform. What kinds of things were achieved through this action? Well, I think the biggest thing that the players were able to do was was expressed that they want to be hurt. They wanted our league toe put racial discrimination, racial profiling, racial injustice, police brutality. They wanted to put that at the forefront. Obviously, there are some tangible items that came about, you know, with with emphasis on voting, with the emphasis on forming a coalition to address these issues moving forward with the emphasis on the policing bill. Writes and addressing that from a legislative standpoint, you've been a prominent voice in Atlanta for racial justice and a protest this summer. I'm going to quote you now, you said. I was born a black man. I'm going to die a black man, But I do not want to die because I'm a black man. Why is sharing your experience with the community there in Atlanta? Important to you? I'm sharing it with anyone that'll listen. And I think it's important to note that you know, prior to June are really, really Phil. That a lot of people in our country both black and white, and any other ethnicity. We're pretty ignorant, Teo the fact that there are a lot of people that feel and think that I in the way that I do in terms of the fear of being black, the fear of living in America and being a black man. I wonder what you say to people who And we've heard this time and time again who think that athletes should be athletes and stay away from the politics? Well, I wasn't and I'm not a person who grew up interested in politics. But what I really don't see is someone that looks like me. That's our fight. Our fight is we need to address areas of legislation. We need to address areas of representation and in order to do so. It's going to require other individuals to fight for those people to be in that position, And so if it requires us athletes on us in sports to push for new representation, and that starts with the vote, then that's what that's what we're going to be committed to. You know, you're the chair of AA Committee of the Coaches Association. That's focused on racial injustice. What what do you see? Coming next from the N B A on this subject? You know, hopefully a lot of hope. There are a lot of angles that come out of this. This isn't us saying we had the answers and we're going to. We're going to tell our players. We have the answers, and this is what we're going to do know this is a different This is a different world for all of us, and so we have committed Ourselves, too. Working with Bryan Stevenson from Unequal Justice Initiative, working with the Obama Foundation in my brother's keeper on mentoring and community initiatives for low income areas, working with various individuals who Are focused in our communities on racial justice, education, access, health care, access, police reform legislative items We want to hear from them. We want to be educated, and we want to be able to amplify the work that they're doing, and that's that's been our focus from day one. That was the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks. Lloyd Pierce. Thank you so much for being on our programme.

"Well they're either going to have to if they can't choke me. They're going to have to beat me into submission, and of course, that film will be all over the place in my family we'll get millions. Or are they gonNA have to taste me which they tried to do with. Rashard Brooks and that didn't work out so well where they're going to have to shoot me. I would much rather these guys be trained properly in the use of. These restraints and and methodologies. But instead of doing that, we're just going Nope we're outlawing this and actually we ironically putting people in more danger. By these sort of things that are happening. So let's just kind of one example of what I'm talking about when I say you know there's this narrative here and we. Go. Down the road this narrative and think that we're working towards solutions and think that anybody on the other side of this. Is Somebody who's just trying to increase oppression or whatever. When when nothing could be further from the truth? Unfortunately, this is Republicans and Democrats fail in this arena that we only pay attention to the inner cities when we're kind of talking about them, only almost as political pawns as a way to either indict the Democrats that are over these cities or Democrats saying that were having guns flood in from the red states and different things like that, and it's really unfortunate and as we are unwilling and unable to have these productive conversations like you were just talking about solutions, there are unfortunately people suffering There are police, officers offering their these inner city suffering in. So critical theory in the world view that it that it brings has disastrous in very tangible effects especially on vulnerable community so. I appreciate you bring that up. Could you I know that we have to let you go could you do me just one favor but before we leave, there are people who are listening to this while most people who listen to this podcast are already Christians and they are seeking to. Strengthen their Biblical worldview. There may be people who are listening to this who do not know. The Gospel. Could you just briefly share the gospel to those people who maybe haven't heard it before? We've been talking about this worldview and how this worldview. Sees what's wrong with the world and critical theory sees oppressors and oppressed, and the Bible has a world view as well and we talked about that. Of Creation Fall Redemption Consummation. There's a god who created the world and he created this perfect world. But then there was a fall. Our forefather Adam fell into sin and all of us are guilty because of Adam's sin he was our federal head are representative if you will. And that brings not only guilt, but it also gives us a sin nature and we are selfish and. We desire our own way and we are opposed to God. And opposed to all things that remind us of God. And our God is holy and he has just and he must any will punish sin and we all know that which is why one of the first things that we learned how to say that's not fair, right? We want justice we crave justice, and that's because the guy who created us as a just God..

"A pleasant morning, Tio attorney Gerald Griggs. What is a good morning and welcome to Onpoint? Wandell and Stokes? How are you doing? Great. How you doing? I'm doing just great. I'm doing just great, so glad to have shared with us today. There is so much happening in the world and of course, you know here in Atlanta, But Attorney Gerald Griggs, second vice president of the Atlanta chapter. Of the CP and also chair of the Criminal Justice Committee for the Georgia and Double A C P, an active attorney that's engaged in and criminal justice and criminal reform. You know, just throughout the world, and you've been ah, the face of many high profile cases ah, throughout the country, but I want you to talk to us. First of all. About your your heart. Your desire to seek truth, mercy and justice forever. Tell us about that. Yes, well, you know, I started my career about 16 years ago, primarily practising criminal laws of public defender and I saw a lot of the inequities in the system. And so I've dedicated my life to trying to balance the scales of justice. And so that you know that my matriculation through the longest trial in Georgia history, the biggest marches in Georgia history and just trying to push legislative change to impact. The social conditions we see in the day in time as we are here in Atlanta and around the state. What are some of, you know, give us an idea of some of the inequalities that you've seen over the years in your experience is that as an attorney were mass incarceration on school to prison pipeline, just the continuation of the effects of white supremacy in the system and a disproportionate impact it has on people of color. So I mean, I've seen it all. You know, I've seen young people sentenced to massive amounts of time and was successful in getting those sentences overturned, not seen schoolteachers sent to prison. I've seen a lot, you know, And now that we're in an age of accountability, where we're dealing with police accountability we're working on balancing the scales so that law enforcement is held to the same standard as ordinary citizens. Right, Right. And do you see attorney Griggs that even though historically African Americans have been dealing with the racial inequalities? Do you believe that we've made any progress even though it's still happening? Do you believe we've made progress or that we're in the same condition? Where before? It just looks different? I think we've made progress. I mean, the fact that I'm sitting here having a conversation with you speak to the progress that we're having. You know, In the past, we had one or two attorneys into space. The Thurgood Marshall's in the Charles Hamilton Houston of history, and now you have thousands. So I just think that we're making progress. It's slow and deliberate pace. Um and we're dealing with 401 years of oppression. But I do see progress. I mean, the fact that we are seeing these particular protest, Uh George Floyd protests the race chart. Brooks protests leading to Actionable change within the law and within the systems Now it's not moving as fast as some people would like it not having a greater impact as I would like, But we are seeing progress. I mean, the mere fact that today City Council will be voting on Rashard Brooks bill on that in in Congress there are trying to push through, Um George Floyd Bill to reform police. Speaks volumes to where we are, but it also speaks lives where we have to go. And we have to address the impediments that are blocking this as politicians who don't want to take it up as police unions that want to shift the narrative. And that's the issue of media that does not appropriately cover. What's actually happening on the ground with these protests was wondering why I was posting as we're talking the actual photos of the last Um, 37 38 days of protests here in Atlanta, So we don't change the narrative because we've had thousands upon thousands of Atlantis and George's Take the streets. We don't want to be distracted by the actions of a few individuals that are trying to change the narrative. And it is so easy to be distracted. When you have individuals that are trying to change the narrative. What do you see as the purpose and the importance of protests? I think protest raise the awareness of the issues. I think we weren't really having this conversation about the issues until the rise. The black lives matter to refocus the issue on systemic racism on racial intolerance on police brutality. The very reason that Colin Cabinet took a knee was to raise awareness, and now we're having this open conversation. There's leading to change, so that's the purpose of the protests. But Dr King always said there's three essential steps to get changed. You need agitation, which is protest. Any legislation, which is changing laws, any litigation to sue and make sure those laws are enforced appropriately, So I think we're in the first stage of this. We're trying to push toward the second stage. We're getting pushed back by some elected officials who have not been at the protest who do not understand the conversation that we're having in America and that want to be roadblocks in the movement towards change an historic change. But about attorney when you look at these politicians who were put in office by the people and not just African American individuals, But why do you think they don't want to even be involved or engaged in the protest or the issues? Surrounding the protests. I think because they're they're in bed with special interest groups and special interest groups of pay for their campaigns pay for their television ads and are not allowing them to speak the will of the people. The people have spoken. I mean, ah grand amount of America, speaking saying that we are in agreement with fundamental change, and so we have to make sure that we hold these elected officials accountable on November 3rd, the ones that want to be obstructionist. It is America. America is moving in a progressive manner. We're not trying to regress for individuals that want don't want to have a conversation about reimagining the allocation of our tax dollars to go into the community instead of incarcerating the community. That seems to be a simple request. Yes, people want Public safety. I think we have to reimagine what public safety looks like. And I think that's an easy conversation. Once you're open to re imagining we have to de militarized police. Because you know, I myself have been one of the protestors have been out there for 39 days. I've seen militarized police. Attack peaceful protesters. I was posted a picture of a few minutes ago. You don't need military grade rep weaponry to deal with a person with a sign and a bullhorn. And so I think that we have to reimagine what that looks like, and then we have to have a real conversation about this blue flu. I mean, if we truly are about law enforcement Why would we Neglect our duties in one of the most important historical moments in this city. Yes, we know. Police are important and a trickle. To the administration of justice. But the administration of Justice must be fair and equitable, So I'm a little disheartened. That marked my brothers, who are also officers of the court are failing to realize that Accountability goes both ways. We know that when a citizen commits murder, they will be arrested. They will go through the judicial process and probably be held accountable. Why can't the same? Be safe? A law enforcement and And when would you say attorney Griggs that when.

"This is a threat. I mean, it's just nastiness. I mean, what's so she's claiming, as you know, the fallback. Oh, it was a joke. I was just joking. And yesterday she took the video down. The original videos down, But there are so many copies out there it was, it exists all over the place. You can find that we'll put a link up a cz. Well, ASU It was not Veronica White. It was Natalie White. Yeah. Natalie White is what just popped into my head. I believe so I'll get into that in just a second. So yesterday she took the video down when she threatened to stab people. And she said that she's gotten an insane reaction. She's gotten death threats. And then she wrote story time for why the Department of Homeland Security might be monitoring my name Right now. That was one of the updates that she put on Social media. And then she said all the video was clearly an analogous joke. Pointing out that she even posted a message without explicitly standing for legal reasons. This is a joke. No. Really? So That's your disclaimer. It's not really a joke, but I'm just gonna put this sort of Ah legal protection. You know, kind of the wink. You say one thing, But, yeah, you kind of do a wink and I'm not talking about George Costanza with lemon juice and his eyeball wink. A real wink. And people are like reporting me for domestic terrorism, tagging the FBI. Tagging Harvard in the Cambridge police. That's what she wrote in some of her follow up social media posts, she wrote. Apparently I'm threatening the lives of people, unlike cops, obviously, but she's she's Ah, troublemaker here anyway. So if I get an email from the Department of Homeland Security or if I get kicked out of Harvard Or I get arrested or whatever, or I get murdered according to the many death threats that I'm receiving right now know that I appreciate you guys standing up for me. That's what she posted. Then she also put up some supportive messages off her threatening tic tac video of stabbing people that say all lives matter. She was laughing about it. She was posting and commenting on other responses that the video got like one, saying that she could be a Chinese spy. With a Western sounding name. TTO help infiltrate the U. S. She says that she was called the sea were a word. Is that a normal video for a Harvard graduate? The post. I don't think that's an extremely normal video. No No, I don't. S o back over. Let me just deal with Garrett Rolf here, and I did see that the wife Of Ray Shard Brooks. She was outraged. I heard a piece of audio of her earlier and she was Crying. So do me a favor. Can you guys see if I meant to pull the audio and I forgot See if you can find the audio of Ray Shard. Brooks's wife. Because the Atlanta cop this Garrett Rolf was released from jail on a $500,000 bond. And he made bail. Apparently shortly after Midnight last night early this morning. And he's out. I would imagine that is probably a target on his back. He probably needs to be careful. And I, There was no double. Anton dra meant there. This guy clearly is going to be a target. In what? Every police officer that I know. Said it was a justified shooting. There are black Atlanta cops. That have spoken up. Some brave black Atlanta cop. Some I think of staying quiet. But again, every cop that I know, said this was a clean shoot. This is a good shoot. I grabbed your Taser gets into the altercation. The one officer gets knocked down hits his head. Then the suspect the purpose running away turns around fires A Taser at you, which could incapacitate allowed him to grant your your regular service weapon. I have a deadly weapon and you opening fire. Even the Atlanta police standard operating procedures, said their manual in a scenario like this With criteria that that meets this case suggests that justified a deadly force. Is acceptable. And again, Black Atlantic. Cops have said this was a good shoot. Of course, it's been completely politicized. So now we have a $500.500,000 dollars bond. And you've got the shooter. You got former cop Ralph is out. Better remain really, really low because again, I think he could be a target. I mean, he could be the subject of a potential assassination. And the wife and I want to dig up the audience, so I'll play that in just a second here. The wife of Ray Sharp, Brooks, I was A cider, selfish was crying couldn't believe that he was released. Shouldn't have been released. I have no questions. I mean, here with this other woman's come forward and said that She's the girlfriend of Rashard Brooks and Can I get some clarification here? I'd like to know what's going on. Was that the wife except the girlfriend or what were they estranged and I don't know. I'm confused. And I'll think up the audio in just a second and ahh, lot more shift Next. Don't move, folks. Ah.

B. S. law enforcement and security analyst Paul violas who is covering this funeral Paul good morning welcome back to KDKA radio good morning Larry good morning Kevin witness Katie K. S. is short well we appreciate you and your expertise so people understand you spent a lot of time in law enforcement and as you know law enforcement overall with this in the midst of all the racial tension and what's gone on in the last month and then we had to this additional shooting of Rashard Brooks in the charges against the two officers that were involved in that there has been a real backlash against police across this country I'm sure you have felt it seen it what do you hear from the friends do you still have who are in law enforcement here you know as I have to tell you do this there are so many disappointing things on both sides of this but one of the things that really stands out to me most is the lack of leadership that I'm seeing at the police executive level in the amount of people that are just that better playing to the tune instead of standing up and and having truthful conversations about what police are doing well and what they're not doing well and what needs to be changed and I can tell you specifically in that regard as we take a look at what happened here in Atlanta it's tragic when anyone looking whenever deadly physical force has to be used it's tragic me understand that but the DA there is is an example of cross you to a grandstanding he's hurting more lives than he needs to he realizes he has a case that he can't win any jumps ahead with eleven charges on this topic before the Georgia bureau of investigation is even complete with their investigation so that is a part of me right now guys that stands out more than any help with anything else is the grandstanding no a lot of us saw the video understand what sort of went down obviously the Mister Brooks is going to be laid to rest today but do these charges will these charges lead to unrest again once if they don't get the outcome desired Kevin I'm gonna tell you right now that is this season's best that you can make and and the reason for that is and and you know we can all stand back and dissect exactly what happened to cops have the fraction seconds to to respond the truth here is that in the state of Georgia and this is not the same Pennsylvania or in many other states but in Georgia that impacts weapon that taser is not considered a non lethal but it's considered a deadly weapon so by pointing it at the police after committing an armed robbery and two batteries on a law enforcement officer they're chasing a fleeing felon when he returns come forward and pass all of the facts in that courtroom a jury is going to have to quit and if they don't then this guy's gonna win on appeal and when that happens to your question then what we've seen so far will pale in comparison to what's gonna happen is that we're all watching that video so upsetting because you see this calm conversation at least for a few minutes and it seems like everything's under control and this goes on for forty plus minutes what do you suspect triggered what happened when they tried to arrest him he just fought back and then took off but once he would have gone beyond they had his wallet they knew who he was he didn't necessarily pose a threat to anybody in society as long as he wasn't driving the car because he was apparently under the influence what went wrong well you know what several things actually Larry but we look at the totality of that arise they could have made a decision early on and this kind of goes back to the really big the macro question that society needs to ask more enforcement what kind of content you want he wanted old school cop exercises police discretion and if that's the case well you can cut costs by putting a camera on them where now there is no more discretion to break the will you go to jail when you see what really goes wrong as it is understand what happens in the dynamics during the course of the last I'm probably thinking in their head when they realized they say okay this guy's going I'm gonna lock this guy up that cop in storage to position himself or herself physically in a way are in a position to that he's going to affect that arrive engine control that suspect in this particular case and I don't want to Monday morning quarterback both of the cops were were were sloppy and lazy you know if you're going to gain control gain control they did not at the same time you have to understand the person that you're going to arrest his thinking right now too they're saying to themselves and I only jail and all the things are going through their mind so that dynamic collided at the point of that arrest and he started to fight back and at that point we all discretion is over because to your question Larry he commits to selling these two battery on a law enforcement officer right there then he takes the weapon which is now an armed robbery so now we went from a minor G. U. Y. where this could have gone a really passive way to chasing a fleeing felon who's armed with a deadly weapon at that point the office of pretty much has no choice in order to exercise deadly physical force because of the fact he presents in the officer's mind as it appears a threat to the community because he has a deadly weapon thirty five at the top his defense will be fired at a cop who's to say he won't fight with somebody else okay that's true I think the whole thing went wrong at that point in this whole thing went down in split second so these decisions are made it very very quickly the war some people say why couldn't they just have let him run they already knew who he was well see the problem was in and initially when you think about that that would make sense but you have to look at the law in the state of Georgia and then you have to look at what the use of force matrix as relevant to how an officer has to deploy a force in order to protect the total community and again in the state of Georgia thank you Sir which is an impact weapon similar to an icicle PO twenty four or else in most other states is a deadly weapon equivalent to a gun by law so when he turns and shoots at the officer now he's shooting with a deadly weapon the officer has to respond and and again I know the optics behind this let him go pick them up tomorrow it's horrible plot points the officer is liable god forbid something happens this guy does something else this is only officer this is waiting in the office at all this is going through in a matter of seconds to a minute within both of those cops judges their cases back to George Floyd in the four officers charge there do you think those charges will stick for the three who weren't the ones kneeling honestly Larry I don't think so I think you're gonna have a really hard time proving aiding and abetting it was a good smart thing to do at the time I get it I understand why they went that way but now we're walking out of the law enforcement stage and we're moving.

S. N. B. C. it's the D. N. C. except maybe a little dumber she's not trying to get the facts she's not a real journalist of such a thing even exist anymore she is there to help with the narrative and the narrative he's ray shard Brooks was a great guy a family man who did nothing wrong he fell asleep peacefully in his car and two racist white cops killed him for no reason and no one has to turn on the other and that other one might just have to get the death penalty because BLM is out there demanding justice that is ever anything that deviates from that anything that veers from that is unacceptable to left right now they're not interested in facts and I'm interested in truth so we at least if we're going to formulate counter narratives as I said you first you establish with the factual basis first have to know that but that's not sufficient if you have a district attorney that's willing to lie about what's on video you're getting a lot more and and to poison the jury pool that this officer may have I'm I'm guessing the officer man of asking for a bench trial just with a judge but who knows poisoning the jury pool with all this then we we need to understand what's really happening here and how we can formulate a narrative that counters it so that people won't walk around scared to say this officer did not do something that deserves this punishment maybe you know some some degree of excessive force should be maybe loses job after the investigation should even face some form of criminal sanction for for excessive force that's possible but a murder charge a felony murder charge he's a complete outrage and that the DA would frame these issues the way he did and the lie about them is completely unacceptable this is political this is a hate we know what's going on we cannot let them get away with it but I don't have to sort sort of switch gears here for a second because I want to tell you about how you away before I do that we have this huge Supreme Court case that I will get into in just I mean it's it is momentous and it's very bad for conservative jurisprudence in the constitution this country has to do with it with illegals also known as dreamers and the Obama administration and trump that's coming up when we get back but first I want you to stay super healthy and that's why I got something I got to tell you about could use a boost these days we know that you've gotta stay healthy and that's why I've added balance of nature's fruits and veggies into my daily routine that's real thirty one whole ripe in.

"One seven two four three Larry elder really effected a calm studio the call it was asking me why the Supreme Court didn't take up certain gun cases in which were the justices that were involved I am refusing to take up those cases well only to want to take him up there was justice Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh want to take up the case that was a challenge to the New Jersey gun carry law that allows the government officials to selectively deny permits and Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh accuse the majority of dodging gun cases and of being basically callidus one legal expert said the supreme court's refusal to take these cases fall squarely at the feet of justice John Roberts healed every gun owner in United States an explanation about why the High Court declined to hear a number of important second minute cases in the quote and now we have this disastrous six three decision that is re interpreted the Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty four to mean the word sex also means sexual orientation if Congress wanted to amend the law by changing the statute passing the statue they certainly could have this is once again legislating from the bench now regarding the charges brought against the officer who shot Rashard Brooks his name is Garrett Ralph he's been charged with felony murder Kerry's life in prison or death penalty if the prosecution chooses to seek it he is also charged with ten other offenses punishable by years decades behind bars here is what a black Georgia sheriff name Alonzo Williams office sheriff of Berks county said about what happened to this to this man right short Brooks whether or not the shooting of him was a valid shooting here's what this black Georgia sheriff name Alonzo Williams said adding thirty years in the business police law and law enforcement and twenty seven of those years having taught use of force and taught hundreds and hundreds of law enforcement officers across the state of Georgia and other states I just think that he's a lawyer he's not a law enforcement officer I think that is it is just a ridiculous statement obviously we saw on the video that the brooch was engaged in a fight with the officers there on the ground we know that when we're on the ground we have a very high likelihood of being hurt or killed it's not the place we want to be this is not a wrestling match the box is able to take a nonlethal weapon a taser away from one of the officers and the police give chase he's committed to felony obstruction of an officer counts and he needs to be held accountable so they are perfectly justified in running behind Brooks to to capture him the Brooks turned back to the officers and fired the taser and we all know that this is a third law enforcement agency I've been head of the and and every agency I've gone to I've required every officer who do who cares a taser sued to be ties with it so that you understand the Banca passa Tatian five seconds one thousand one one thousand to one thousand three one thousand four one thousand five that's five whole second set if an officer is hit with a taser that he all of his muscles will be locked up and he'll have the inability to move and to respond and yet he is still responsible for every weapon on his belt league is so that that officer had been hit he still has a firearm on his side and the likelihood of him being stocked in the head or having his farm taken and used against him was a probability and so he did what he needed to do and this was a completely justified shooting so you think leave leave the force here was necessary Sir no Sir is that the Fourth Amendment allows it this is the objective reasonableness standard and there's there's nothing malicious or sadistic and the way these officers behaved and it's very unfortunate that the law enforcement leaders and the state of Georgia have not come out and stood together on this case I think it's political and and it it it's it's senseless we're sending the wrong message to our black youth were telling them that that it's okay that that they can run from the police they can take a weapon from the police they can fight with the police and and and no weapon at the police and I expect nothing to happen that is the wrong message to send to black you know call earlier said that the type of taser the officer had had two shots in it and wanted already been fired the Associated Press says this quote but the DA said the taser that Brooks held had already been fired twice and that he was no longer and it was empty and no longer a threat Chris Cuomo versus cab county police union president Stephen Gaynor this case okay comes down to that last moment I believe I am my legal analysis and that's why I'm interested in your take on this all right he has the taser maybe it's a dangerous thing maybe it is it has to come down to how it's used it's fired over his shoulder and turned with someone was clearly running away in a parking lot whether all these families and stuff to park cars that's a good decision from an officer are to start firing at that person running away in a parking lot that's filled with cars with people in it I don't know from the video Chris what is backdrop is obviously the officer felt it was a safe environment because we are trained to look at the backstop so if his backstop was clear and he felt comfortable in the shot that's probably why he took it but I can't tell from the video is what the backs what is his being possible taking it is different than it being okay some officers have described this as may be lawful but awful in terms of choices do you really believe you can justify shooting a man multiple times in the.

"Momentarily we expect that they will unsealed the indictments charging police officer Ralph with various counts of murder in the case he and his partner ended up shooting Rashard Brooks outside at Wendy's a few days ago when you look at the the sheet the resume a police officer Ralph H. been on the force should line up a police department for us for five years he's been cited thirteen times wait don't tell me is that a is that average is it above average you have any idea you mean in terms of him being cited yeah well you know the the some of the some a minor you know not proper uniform would write this serious money she had one use of force with a firearm charge but it hasn't it hasn't been sort of fleshed out we don't know exactly what that was at ten five years now his partner the older police officer Devin bras and then the reason on he's on desk duty now is in his career which I think is longer than Ralph who shot Rashard Brooks he sat zero zero violations in his his file interesting so while he's on the shelf for a while I don't think he'll be indicted I don't think you'll be indicted but definitely police officer Rahul well the the the Ralph guy apparently this is according to court documents was involved in some sort of twenty fifteen shooting cover up so yeah we're gonna find out probably in about twenty minutes or so right meantime though unexpectedly because you know the situation down there is quite volatile oil the mayor of fire this police officer Rafa mediate Lee wanted him charged with murder I know what her rationale was in Lana had suffered in the first round of the black lives matter demonstrations to remember when the attack to CNN building and they attacked other places they looted there was some fires so she won her city to go up in smoke and fire but the deviation of the criminal justice system that's separate so we'll see what he does and more importantly there is some opposition out there coming from an unlikely source because it's such a divisive issue down there now between blacks and whites it's a black judges sheriff who's been elected that's an elected position in the state of Georgia who is defending what police officer rob did and police officer Devin Verizon works is able to take a nonlethal weapon a taser away from one of the officers and utilities they give chase he's committed to felony obstruction of an officer channels and he needs to be held accountable so they are perfectly justified in running behind Brooks to to capture him the Brooks turned back to the officers and fired the taser and so sheriff Alonzo Williams went further he said what kind of message does this send out to the black youth of our community we're sending the wrong message to our black youth were telling them that bad that it's okay that that they can running from the police they can take a weapon from the police they can fight with the police and and and pointed a weapon at the police and expect nothing to happen that is the wrong message to send to black youth I agree so now this is going to be high tension the DA is going to be under pressure to him with a Max although will be I think a very difficult very difficult road to go to get this comp convicted if you go with maximum charge yes this is not the show band thing situation in Minneapolis it's far from it no and I don't think we know yet the background of Rashard Brooks I don't think any of that is been revealed yet but that always impacts I was actually looking I mean this is the other day but it didn't seem that he I I I actually try to see does he have a record when I look the other day that nothing came up it's he was considered to be a great man a company that he works for people were saying that they couldn't believe it he such a wonderful guy but then again how do you how do you compare that to the guy that ran away and then tried to taser a police officer yeah well again it's hard to reconcile twenty seven even though the not the police officers didn't know him I didn't know if he had a record you know just like in Minneapolis as was said about Floyd we you know Floyd had quite a racket the offices they're responding to the passing of a counterfeit twenty dollar bill that they claim he will he did in the store I had no idea of his back in in even if it was his background if they news background doesn't justify that use of force this one is critical if you're in Atlanta you want to delay this trial as long as possible whether bench or the prosecution you don't want swift justice because if it comes out the way believing it'll come back out with that the police officers might be exonerated or at least the one police officer a police officer Ralph found the guilty on the the least serious charge it'll because people go out into the streets no justice no peace some will be peaceful others may then end up star rioting and looting and then you have that series that cycle of events all over again right well let's thrown out to the people you have an opportunity to watch that video boy you said video been played over and over and over again from different angles to so you had it from the private security camera that Wendy said the windy city is no longer there it's just a burned out wreck white women torched it two white women decided I guess the day in like and the guy who started the Wendy's in the torch into the ground but it's still there the remnants of it and it's become sort of a a make shift sort of place you come to pay respects with Shawbrook should to join the black lives

B. I. director but he's not unknown unknown quantities ours alone you know as a prosecuting attorney it's this is his first what year year and a half an office and I was impressed to see he was he was out there fast he bought his discreet he released the videos and his description of what happened was was from the mind of a prosecutor not the mind of someone who seemed inclined to protect the police officer which is not only you know which is uncharacteristic in Georgia has to say what's who also gonna be interesting about this case because it Mister Ralph I guess is as last name with the police officer yes you know up until twenty sixteen in Georgia believe it or not if you're a police officer and you're accused of a crime you got to go before the coroner's inquest you got to go before the grand jury you got to sit and listen to all the testimony against you and then you got to give the last statement without being sworn in and without being cross examined it was the most extraordinary police privilege in this lasted for decades and decades it finally ended in twenty sixteen due to some reporting the land journal constitution the showed that out of a hundred and seventy people killed by police between twenty ten and twenty fifteen there was only one indictment and that was thrown out the next day when the prosecutor went in and asked the judge to throw it out so there is great interest for which but this officer will now be tried as soon as it goes in that direction if he's accused and tried to be tried under a new standard he won't be able to do all those things that others were able to do yeah Brooks's death as been ruled by the Fulton County medical examiner a homicide and last I heard two possible charges for officer Garrett Ralph murder or felony murder so we'll have to I don't want to the the then that very well may be the way it turns out yeah have you looked at a lot of death certificates they will say homicide and it's not really a medical examiners to job to determine whether it's a homicide but they just put that on there is because it kind of loosely speaking but we'll see yes and now we are talking with Hank clip enough he's the host of buried truths and also the director of the Georgia civil rights cold cases project at Emory University thank your podcast has the tagline we can't change our history but we can let it guide us to understanding who still doesn't understand what's going on well I think a lot of people don't I'm sorry I mean where they didn't you know I think people are you know I had this echo that the that lyric from the boxer you know by Simon Garfunkel still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest yeah you know I I've had that thought in my head overnight because of a note that went out my own neighborhood because it was going to be some young people gathering to protest and we were all being more and bring in the furniture bring in your lawn furniture bring in this you know protect your cars and think are you kidding me.

"This is your opportunity to weigh in on the big stories at five one two eight three six zero five ninety no the autopsy report is completes in the death of Rashard Brooks this is in Atlanta you've seen the story percolating since Friday when it happened Brooks is a black man from Atlanta who died after an encounter with police at a Wendy's that Wendy's has since been burned to the ground after a couple of nights of riots looting yeah the medical examiner ruled his death a homicide Brooks died from a gunshot wound to his back creating organ failure and blood loss now police body cam shows Brooks talking cooperative with the Atlanta police and admitted that he had been drinking he agreed to a field sobriety test blowing that breathalyzer blow a one point oh eight the legal limit point zero eight so he was legally intoxicated and need to be needed to be arrested I guess for a D. W. Y. yeah and that's what they were in the process of doing they were in the process of handcuffing him and all that's when he started to resist the video is very clear he did resist bought he punched he managed to get one of the tasters from the officer and as he's running away puts his arm back and shoots the taser in the direction of the officers and that's when one of them pulled his gun and shoots him twice he had a body camera shows Brooks in the officers wrestling to the ground over that taser Brooks pointed at officers the district attorney told CNN that Brooks did not appear to be a present any kind of threat to anyone so the fact that it would be escalated to his death seems on reason okay so a taser is not threatening anybody what is considered a less lethal weapon right right yeah and he did point if the cops now I I the distance he was from them it it looked improbable that he was gonna hit one of the cops I think the thinking is that if if a cop is taste then that suspect was already proven that he wants to fight in her cops may get a hold of the gun yeah and use that does that right either thinking that well that's that's what the budget but if people live watching that video they have a real problem with the fact that he was running away the threat was ending he was running away and he was shot twice in the back yeah that is the issue that is going to run yeah the thing is that that was a gun if that was a gun with bullets in it to any fired at the cops that absolutely would have been justified the the but it was it was theirs I mean yeah I mean and and yeah and the problem is with the taser I don't you know it's it's unlikely that that he was going to go tell you somebody if if he got away from the cops you know he just he got it he was running and there's no doubt he he was running one way it did not look like he was a threat to the cops at that moment and that right there is the issue for a lot of folks that's that's why Wendy's burned it's why this you know the rights in the in the disagreements are going on yeah I'd love to get some reaction at five one two eight three six zero five nine if if he had taken if if the if you take in the taser and then they were still in a in a you know in a wrestling match there and they were still going at it and he then he was able get control of the taser I think absolutely the shooting would have been justified but is mad but the fact is he was running away and he was way away from them he did shoot the taser and there was no way I think that they were they was gonna head of India it's it's it's just so you're so you're saying you would do as a police officer you should be shocked I don't think it was justifiable in this case no I don't not in this case because the taser was two for what the taser was not a threat at that time it is let's see Atlanta police in this deadly shooting a black man is now the focus of the national debated former New York police detective and former secret service agent Dan Bongino he talked about the details of this case this morning on fox let's listen if you're a police officer trained in the use of force continuum what do you do you have a man alleged to be intoxicated who's behind the wheel of a car blocking the window in the Wendy's the Wendy's call Steve these officers didn't show up because they had nothing to do they didn't show up because they wanted a burger they showed up because the Wendy's call the police do you just not show up okay now that you've shown up the man takes a breathalyzer it's alleged I don't have the but it's alleged the man was drunk what do you do then you let him get back behind the wheel okay obviously not now you have to rest of the man doesn't want to be arrested he violently attacked a police officer on video what do you do now let him be deciding to your dad your gun and shoot you okay maybe change your change or one more he runs away she's after running windows stricter Kasia pointed in your face and dish charges what do you do you just let him go I don't understand what people were inflaming rather trying to help the situation why did these officers to do here there you go that's damaging on fox earlier this well you know says he says he was shot in the same circumstance I say it's it's it's unjustified that limit the I'm thinking about this a little more because it what they couldn't just stop pursuing the guy okay they had to keep pursuing this guy at that point he had a weapon with them that he stole from a police officer he attacked he attacked the police officer at some point it was it was it was possible that they were going to get to very very close to this guy again apprehended and the guy has a weapon so maybe you know thinking about it that way he maybe was still a threat a a justifiable maybe it was a justifiable shooting at thinking about it in that way yeah just like they were just gonna stop chase jumping here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety let me get your reaction you've seen the video in its entirety by now C. N. N. in the media really need to you know be a little more responsible and stories like this their first headline was white cop shoots a black man for sleeping in a Wendy's drive thru yeah no that's not how it's done that's not the story no that's not what happened that's not what happened at all he was not shot because he was sleeping and that's what he was missing an item in the first twenty four hours just kept pushing insinuating which riles up a community which makes people want to go and burn things down they they they are culpable in some of this it is seven eleven here K.
