ATLANTA (CBS46) – Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said he has received death threats after the decision to indict former APD Officer Garrett Rolfe and Officer Devin Brosnan on felony murder charges. The threats come as D.A. Howard said he thinks the public wants to speed things up in the criminal justice system.

“What would generally happen is the case would sit there until the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) finished its investigation, and that takes about three months,” Howard said on The Rashad Richey Show Thursday morning. “It’s clear the public is saying that, ‘we don’t like that and that’s not the way it should go.’”

Howard announced multiple charges against Rolfe Wednesday for shooting Rayshard Brooks last Friday night. During his press conference Wednesday, Howard said his office spoke with three of the witnesses in the case, conducted interviews with seven other witnesses and reviewed eight videos — two from APD body cam, two dash cam tapes, a witness surveillance tape and three citizens cell phone videos. Howard told Richey the videos helped his office expedite the arrests.
