Surprising Plot Twist in Atlanta: ‘Girlfriend’ Is Suspect in Wendy’s Arson

Posted on | June 21, 2020 | 2 Comments


Absolutely did not see this coming:

Atlanta police issue arrest warrant
for Rayshard Brooks’ ‘girlfriend’, 29,
for burning down the Wendy’s where
he was shot and killed by cops

That’s the Daily Mail headline (via Ed Driscoll at Instapundit).

When I first saw this angle tipped yesterday by Wayne Dupree, I couldn’t believe it. If you saw the video on social media, you probably guessed that the white girl setting fire to Wendy’s was some kind of Antifa radical. To discover she may be Rayshard Brooks girlfriend? Whoa!

It was reporters in Atlanta who first noticed that the name of the arson suspect matched the name Brooks told police was the girlfriend who dropped him off at Wendy’s, as captured on bodycam video:

During the incident, Brooks suggested to officers that he could go to his girlfriend’s house nearby. In the footage, Brooks names White.
“You know, Natalie White, she’s my girlfriend. She left. I said, ‘Baby, I’ll get Wendy’s and then I’ll go back …'” he can be heard saying.

But that was a lie. Natalie White is from Gwinnett County, on the other side of the city from the Wendy’s where Brooks was shot.

If this woman was his girlfriend, what does that tell us about the relationship between Brooks and Tomika Miller, the mother of his three children, who has made so many media appearances lamenting the death of the man she calls her “husband”? Not that running around on your baby mama ought to be punishable by death, but considering how the media have depicted Brooks as a saintly martyr, this information does seem relevant. Although I’m sure it’s racist to question the beatification of St. Rayshard of the Blessed Bacon Double Cheeseburger.
