ATLANTA - A public viewing for Rayshard Brooks, the Black man shot in the back by an Atlanta police officer outside a Wendys restaurant, is planned for Monday at the citys Ebenezer Baptist Church, with a private funeral to follow the next day.
Brooks, 27, was the latest in a long line of unarmed African Americans whose fatal encounters with law enforcement have been documented on video. His funeral, which the familys lawyer said would be paid for by filmmaker Tyler Perry, will also be streamed on the churchs website.

Brooks was a drunk driver who passed out in the drivers seat at a drive thru, then shot at a cop.
Alas, his girlfriend will be unable to attend having been arrested and charged with arson.
promoting the act of resisting arrest??
Honoring a child beater, lovely......
What did this criminal contribute to society to warrant the public honoring him? The same goes for George Floyd. The police involved in their deaths should be accountable for any wrong actions on their part, but based on what we have learned about these two men, they are due no honor from the public at large.
They should burn down the CNN Center, that bastion to white supremacist Ted Turner (who himself played a Confederate solider in “Glory”), and replace it with a 100-foot high statue of Rayshard Brooks.
While George Washington and others’ statues are being torn down . The time is now ...for you know what . It’s now or never .
Public to honor Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta as family mourns after police shooting
What exactly did this idiot do during his brief and worthless life that made him worth “honoring”?
“latest in a long line of unarmed African Americans”
I wonder if I got shot dead after stealing a cop’s taser and firing it at him, if I would be referred to in the media as “unarmed”.
Actually I don’t wonder about that at all.
Brooks was a drunk driver who passed out in the drivers seat at a drive thru, then shot at a cop....while on probation.
I think they should be honored with a urinal put up in their “honor”.
What’s everybody drinking?
Careful, they can be a bit strong
He already had a prior conviction on his driving record
He did it “His way” (apologies to Frank Sinatra)
You know a culture by what they CELEBRATE
Quantity over quality.
