The former Atlanta police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks was granted a $500,000 bond on Tuesday.

A judge granted bond to 27-year-old Garrett Rolfe. He’s now required to wear an ankle monitor and has a curfew. He has to observe a 6am-6pm curfew while awaiting trial. A trial date has not been set.

Rolfe is facing felony murder charges after shooting Brooks during a confrontation in a Wendy’s parking lot on June 12th.  He was fired by Atlanta PD shortly after.

What kind of police reforms might have prevented an incident like this from happening?
