Justin Miller, the Brooks family attorney, instructed CNN’s Ana Cabrera on Sunday that a police officer’s very first comment immediately after the deadly taking pictures of Rayshard Brooks is “quite disturbing.”
Fulton County District Lawyer Paul Howard’s informed CNN “we really get a chance to hear the officer’s first statement following the shooting took location. And what the officer stated is not that his life was saved. What his statement was, he reported, ‘I got him.'”
Miller stated he and the relatives are mindful of the “I obtained him” assertion.
That was pretty disturbing to myself, my partner Chris, and Tamika, his widow. Extremely disturbing,” Miller stated.
Miller also discussed the autopsy, expressing they have not viewed the report, but they know some of the factors that will be in it.
“We know he was shot two times in the back again. When in his mid-back and once in his buttocks and all those pictures ended up killing him,” Miller said.
Pertaining to costs, Miller stated “this is a little different than say George Floyd’s murder simply because it is continue to a murder, but the legalities just, they slide in a different way when there is a scuffle and a taser and then a fleeing person who is killed.”
As for what Miller expects the charges to be, he said “it almost certainly will not be murder.”
“That’s a very really hard detail to charge,” Miller stated. “You know, you just look at all the other conditions that had been a bit clearer and, you know, just as deadly to the consumer, and they had been not billed with murder.”
Miller did say it was good individuals and town leaders are using techniques “to mitigate difficulties.”
“But it is not justice, and we don’t seriously assume it can ever be justice due to the fact a man’s existence was taken, youngsters missing a father, and a wife misplaced a spouse.”
