An attorney for Devin Brosnan, one of the police officers involved in the Rayshard Brooks shooting at a Wendy’s in Atlanta says that Brosnan suffered a number of injuries during the incident, including a concussion.
Atlanta police officer Devin Brosnan suffered a concussion and other injuries during the altercation that led to the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks, the cop’s attorney said in a televised interview.
The lawyer added: “He then falls over and lands on his head on the pavement and gets a concussion.”
Samuel, who called Brosnan’s actions “exemplary,” claimed prosecutors didn’t bother looking at the officer’s medical records.
He also rejected the aggravated assault charge leveled against his client, who prosecutors said stood on Brooks’ shoulder after he was shot.
Samuel said the concussed Brosnan didn’t even realize Brooks had been shot when he “put his foot on the arm to make sure he didn’t have access to a weapon” as he lay on the ground.
“It’s not an assault. It’s a man suffering from a concussion,” he added. More
These cops are getting a bad rap. Why doesn’t anyone say the man was drunk driving, passed out in the drive-thru, then assaulted a police officer, stole his taser (a deadly weapon) and tried to use it on him. This is justified in every sense of the word. We need to stand up for our police in these circumstances or we will not have any left to protect us from bad guys.
@RudyGiuliani @BernardKerik @dbongino So Brooks resisted arrest? Why? Suspicion of drunk driving really isn’t worthy of resisting arrest so what was he thinking about? Here are some clues. pic.twitter.com/t9bhcVv2a1
