According to a report from The Daily Mail, Rayshard Brooks was on probation and could have potentially received a prison sentence.
The fear of incarceration likely caused Brooks to lose his composure as he faced a potential arrest and tried to escape arrest.
Brooks ended up being shot and killed on Friday, June 12, 2020 when cops received a 911 call to the Wendy’s at University Avenue in Atlanta. Brooks was found drunk and asleep at the wheel of his car while blocking the fast food restaurant’s drive-thru lane.
At the start, Brooks was relatively calm with the officers during the 20-minute period which officers Devin Brosnan and Garrett Rolfe asked him about how much he was drinking and how he ended up asleep in his car at the drive-thru.
Towards the end of the fatal encounter, Brooks told officers that he could walk home claiming that it wasn’t far.
However, things changed after Brooks failed a field sobriety test and blew 0.108 when he was subject to a breathalyzer exam. Rolfe then proceed to cuff Brooks who instantly fought back, which caught both officers off-guard.
In the fight that ensued, one of the officers shouted “stop fighting” and warned him, “You’re going to get tased,” as the incident started getting more violent.
According to The Daily Mail, Brooks “pleaded guilty and for which he was still on probation dated back to August 2014 when he was convicted on four counts – False Imprisonment, Simple Battery/Family, Battery Simple and Felony Cruelty/Cruelty to Children.”
On the first count, Brooks was tried in Clayton County and sentenced to seven years, “with one year in prison and six on probation and 12 months for each of the other three counts, sentences to be served concurrently.”
His sentence ended up being amended and was sent back to prison for 12 months in July 2016 when he violated his probation terms.
Brooks stayed out of trouble since that year until last December when he traveled to Ohio without letting his probation officer know and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
That warrant would end up being revoked and the case was dismissed when he returned to Georgia on January 6.
Brooks’ wife, Tomika Miller, claimed he was a “devoted husband to her and loving father to their three daughters and his stepson.”
On CNN, Miller described her husband as a happy person who always cheered her up and her children.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner ruled Brooks’ death a homicide after conducting an autopsy on June 2014.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigations are still investigating the shooting and Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard is entertaining the introduction of charges against officer Rolfe who fired three times with two bullets hitting Brooks in the back.
Howard claimed that Rolfe would have trouble arguing self-defense, despite clear evidence of Brooks grabbing Brosnan’s taser and turning to use the stun gun against Rolfe as he was chasing him.
Howard declared that a Taser is not a lethal weapon, thus the officers’ lives were not in danger.
Miller said she is not mad with the officer who killed her husband because “God will deal with that.”
She continued, “I know my husband would never want me to be upset with them or hold that feeling in my heart. He was a very forgiving person.”
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
