In a preview of an interview airing Monday on CBS This Morning, Tomika Miller, the wife of Rayshard Brooks says she wants the officers involved in the fatal shooting of her husband to go to jail.
“I want them to go to jail,” she said. “I want them to deal with the same thing as if it was my husband who killed someone else. If it was my husband who shot them, he would be in jail. He would be doing a life sentence. They need to be put away.”
When speaking of her husband, Miller said, “Rayshard Brooks is everybody. Just like George is everybody. We are all the people, we are all God’s children.”
“We should feel the pain of those who lost their life to senselessness over authority being taken way overboard,” she said.
Miller’s interview will air on Monday on CBS This Morning.
An autopsy report released on Sunday by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said Brooks was shot twice in the back.
The report says that he died from organ damage and blood loss from the two gunshot wounds.
