Watch the body camera footage. This shootee passed out drunk in the drive-thru lane of the Wendy's resto and was blocking the lane. The management understandably called the police to get him and his car removed. They could not do business with him there. The cops woke him up, and gave him several sobriety tests. He failed all of them. They decided to arrest him for drunk driving. He started fighting both of them when they attempted to handcuff him. He seized one of their TASER weapons and tried to shoot one of the cops. Then he ran away with the TASER. One of the policemen shot him as he ran.
The mayor of Atlanta fired the shooter without a hearing or investigation of his conduct. The police chief resigned the next day.
This action by the mayor was IMO grotesquely unjust. He should be re-hired pending an investigation. Failing that he should sue the city for personal injury. pl
