Garrett Rolfe, the former Atlanta cop who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks when arrested in a Wendy’s parking lot, thinks he should never have been canned… he pursues his job. Rolfe sues the mayor of Atlanta Bas Keisha Lance and the acting city police chief Rodney Bryant, claiming that his June 13 dismissal – which came the day after Rayshard’s death – violates city policy and its constitutional right to due process. In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Rolfe points out that Rayshard violently resisted arrest before the fatal shooting – and explains, “in the course of and in the performance of his duties” he used force. Ex-cop tells about his dismissal, which was announced by the mayor and then chief of the Atlanta police force Erika shields, violated a law he said required a proper investigation, notice and hearing before he was fired.
Rolfe, who is accused of crime murder and is currently under caution, wants to be reinstated in the police force and wants back pay and benefits. Meanwhile, Rayshard’s widow, Tomika Miller, supports a motion by the Fulton County district attorney asking a judge to revoke Rolfe’s bond. Tomika says she was injured. Rolfe is said to have taken a beach vacation in Florida without permission.
