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.
