Protests continue to be ongoing in Atlanta in the fight to bring awareness of the constant racism and police brutality in this country. Police continue to shoot and killed unarmed black people for no reason and plenty of people have had enough and are fed up.
The latest incident comes in Atlanta on Friday night involving an unarmed black man named Rayshard Brooks. Police were called after someone complained that he was sleeping in his car at a Wendy’s drive-thru, according to TMZ. Two white officers tried arresting him after claiming he underwent a failed sobriety test. They then started going at it with him on the ground for 30 seconds.
Atlanta police claimed that when he stood up, Brooks took a taser from one of them and then ended up getting met with another taser. Brooks started to run and was then hit with three shots to his back. He was soon taken into emergency surgery where he passed away in the process.
Check out video of the incident below.
