They will have trouble getting this conviction. An acquittal will mean more rioting.
If they go that hard, he will be acquitted.
Apparently the other officer on scene has turned states evidence
This is nothing but a political charge.
This is insane. If the guy had tazed the cop and taken his weapon, he could have killed him and God knows who else! This is truly mad. They never do this when a white guy gets killed.
This is insane.
Rioters and looters are let go as peaceful protesters.
Police defending themselves from a taser attack are murderers?
The DA needs to be hauled out of office.
Think Blue flu.
Can he get a fair trial in Atlanta with mega media saturation of this?
I hope the case is outside of that county too. This is all about politics and getting revenge even though the officer had a justified shoot
“They will have trouble getting this conviction. An acquittal will mean more rioting.”
A surprise early acquittal on demand a week or two before the election?
It’ll be a grave injustice if the cop isn’t cleared.

DA lobbying to bypass need for grand jury for this case.
Like what? The entire thing from the approach to the car to the shooting is on video.
How many blacks in that city right now will find the officer innocent?
He will be acquitted. This is out of line.
>> The DA needs to be hauled out of office.
Yup, for conspiracy to incite riots.
The trial will be a year out at least.
Then he will be acquitted since this was a justifiable shoot.
