Proof Crooked D.A. in Fulton County is Placing False Charges on Atlanta Officers
Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard is under scrutiny for false charges against the 2 officers that were involved with the Rashard Brooks incident.
DA Howard charged the officer who shot Brooks with felony murder and other charges.
Former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe is facing 11 charges, including felony murder, multiple counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, first-degree criminal damage to property, and two counts of violating of his oath as a public officer.
Does felony + murder = felony murder? It’s a little more complicated than that.
What is Felony Murder?
Felony murder is a legal rule that expands the definition of murder. It applies when someone commits a certain kind of felony and someone else dies in the course of it. It doesn’t matter whether the death was intentional or accidental—the defendant is liable for it. The rule is usually limited to felonies that are inherently or foreseeable dangerous to human life, such as arson, rape, robbery, and burglary.
D.A. Howard will not be able to provide such burden of proof because the body cams and phone recording all prove no felony was committed.
Claim: Officers didn’t assist with medical help for Rashard Brooks? FALSE
As you can see in this body cam video the officers were trying to do everything they could to get a pulse. This was clearly another false charge by D.A. Howard. Officers provided cpr on Rashard Brooks while waiting for medics to arrive.
Claim: Officers used deadly force against a suspect that was non lethal or dangerous because a taser is not deadly.
According right out of the horses own mouth, Just two weeks ago Paul Howard said tasers were deadly weapons when six police officers used them on violent protesters.
Claim: Rashard Brook’s stolen taser was empty and was not a threat to the officers.
Rashard Brooks grabbed the first officers taser which hasn’t been fired (deployed) and still had 2 live wire rounds in it.
The people are demanding for a special council and help from the States Attorney to get involved with this case.
District Attorney Paul Howard also has some investigations looking into him funneling $140,000 in Atlanta Funds to pay his Salary. This guy is super crooked and is soon up for re election so he has a clear motive to try to sway the community that he will give harsh justice hoping he can drag this out to get re elected.
At the end of all this the charges will not hold and the officers will be released and possible exonerated, and the people he is trying to get on his side for the upcoming election will all bit him in the a** at the end.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported in May:
The GBI has opened an investigation of Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard and his use of a nonprofit to funnel at least $140,000 in city of Atlanta funds to supplement his salary, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News have learned.
The criminal investigation comes at a time when Howard, Fulton’s DA since 1997, is being challenged in the Democratic primary for reelection and is facing allegations of sexual harassment, which he strongly denies.
In a statement issued Monday, Howard predicted he will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
“This is not the first time what would be considered as an administrative matter for other Georgia elected officials is turned over to the GBI for investigation when it involves the Fulton County district attorney,” he said. This was in reference to the agency’s 2014 investigation of Howard’s use of money forfeited by criminals to pay for galas and dinners for his staff and their families.
In that GBI probe, prompted by media reports, “I was totally exonerated,” Howard said. As for the ongoing investigation, he said, “(I)f the facts are followed, it is my expectation that the result will be exactly the same.”
Howard said the timing of this investigation, weeks away from the June 9 primary, “is not lost on me.”
Howard is also facing a state ethics complaint for not disclosing he was a chief executive of the nonprofit, People Partnering for Progress, in personal financial statements. On April 15, the Georgia Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission charged Howard with a dozen disclosure violations, most of them involving PPP.
