Fired Officer Who Was Searching for Killing Rayshard Brooks Makes His Job Back

Atlanta’s Civil Service Board announced on Wednesday they given the appeal of fired police officer Garrett Rolfe, revoking his conclusion within the death of Rayshard Brooks, 27. The Board said the town broke its own rules by rushing through the dismissal process and not giving Rolfe enough time to officially react to the move.
In the newly released files [emphasis ours]:
As previously statedthe Panel’s sole mission is to decide whether the City’s imposition of an adverse employment action complied with the Code. Part 114-530 (a) of this Code clearly outlines procedures and protocols for administering adverse employment actions:”An employee against whom an adverse action is to be taken shall receive a written notice of proposed adverse action, signed by the appointing authority or designee, at least ten working days before the effective date of this proposed adverse action.” Therefore, the City’s actions weren’t compliant with all the ten days prior notice period as required by the Code.
As seen on human anatomy cam, bystander, and surveillance footage, Rolfe and fellow officer Devin Brosnan responded to a call about a man (Brooks) sleeping in a car in a Wendy’s drive-thru on June 12, 2020. They challenged Brooks, and tried to detain him after he blew a .108 onto a breathalyzer. Brooks resisted. A struggle ensued. Brosnan pulled his Taser, however, Brooks caught it and allegedly fired it. Rolfe fired his own Taser in the man.
Brooks conducted as Rolfe gave chase. He also pointed the Taser back in the officer and dismissed it. Rolfe opened fire with a handgun three times, striking Brooks double in the back.
Rolfe faces charges including felony murder. He claimed the Fifth Amendment during a hearing to appeal his fire.
