WALSH: A Man Is Killed After Assaulting A Cop And Stealing His Taser. The Left Calls It Police Brutality. That’s Nonsense.
Demonstrators gather for staging a protest after an Atlanta police officer shot and killed Rayshard Brooks, 27, at a Wendy's fast food restaurant drive-thru Friday night in Atlanta, United States on June 14, 2020. As nationwide protests slowed in the death of George Floyd, anger again erupted Saturday in the US over the fatal shooting of another black man.

Another round of riots broke out in Atlanta over the weekend, this time over the police shooting of a man named Rayshard Brooks. The media is quick to tell us that the deceased is a black man and the officer who shot him is white, but Brooks’ race appears to be far less relevant than his behavior in this case. 

Police were originally called to a local Wendy’s on Friday night after Brooks fell asleep behind the wheel in the drive-thru lane. When officers arrived and noticed a strong scent of alcohol, along with the other obvious indicators of drunkenness, they asked him to take a sobriety test. When his blood alcohol content came back well over the legal limit, they attempted to make an arrest.
