Perry has, however, offered to pay for Brooks’ funeral and the college educations of his children: Blessing, 8, Memory, 2, Dream 1, and stepson Mekai, 13.

As a philanthropist, Perry wanted to do something to help the family. He genuinely sends his heartfelt wishes to the family during this tragic time.

Brooks’ death comes during a period of civil unrest in America. Demonstrations have risen across the nation and world opposing police brutality against black people.

National focus and protests on the Black Lives Matter movement were driven largely by George Floyd’s May 25th death while in the custody of the Minneapolis police.

This was after officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.

Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced that Atlanta police chief Erika Shields resigned from her post within hours of the incident.

Brooks’ death incited angry demonstrations in the city. The protesters set fire to Wendy’s restaurant where Brooks was killed and shut down an interstate highway in both directions. A total of 36 persons were arrested by the police.

Sources say that Officer Garett Rolfe has been fired following the fatal shooting of Brooks and a second officer has been placed on administrative duty.e
