Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia - Amerika Serikat kembali dilanda demo berujung kerusuhan. Bahkan sebuah restoran cepat saji dibakar massa pada Sabtu (13/6/2020) di Atlanta AS.

Hal ini terjadi akibat kematian Rasyhard Brooks di tangan polisi. Setidaknya 36 orang ditangkap dan Kepala Polisi Atlanta mengundurkan diri.



Sebagaimana ditulis AFP, Brooks adalah seorang seorang warga AS keturunan Afrika. Ia berumur 27 tahun.

Peristiwa penembakannya terjadi setelah ia menentang polisi yang mencoba menangkapnya. Saat itu, ia ditangkap karena tidur di dalam mobil di area layanan drive through restoran Wendy's.

Menurut sebuah laporan resmi, Brooks hendak ditangkap karena laporan karyawan yang menelepon polisi pada Jumat malam. Brooks dianggap telah menghalangi pelanggan lain.

Biro Investigasi mengatakan ia tidak tenang saat hendak diamankan. Perkelahian pun terjadi antar polisi yang menangkap dengan dirinya.

Berdasarkan CCTV di lokasi kejadian, saat berkelahi dengan petugas, Brooks merebut salah satu tasers atau stun gun milik petugas. Ia pun disebut sempat melarikan diri.

Tasers biasanya digunakan polisi di AS sebagai senjata "tidak mematikan" untuk menghentikan konfrontasi. Petugas mengejar Brooks tanpa kendaraan dan selama pengejaran, Brooks berbalik dan menodongkan tasers ke arah petugas.



"Petugas menembakkan senjatanya, menyerang Brooks," tulis Biro Investigasi Georgia.

"Brooks dibawa ke rumah sakit tetapi meninggal setelah operasi. Satu petugas terluka."

Seorang juru bicara polisi Atlanta menyebut polisi yang melakukan penembakan itu bernama Garrett Rolfe, sudah diberhentikan dari kepolisian pada hari Sabtu. Sementara perwira kedua dimutasi dan diberi tugas administrasi, tulis CNN International.

Kejadian itu terjadi hanya beberapa minggu setelah tewasnya George Floyd di tangan polisi Minneapolis. Floyd, yang juga warga kulit hitam, tewas saat ditangkap polisi karena dicurigai memakai uang palsu saat membeli rokok pada 25 Mei.

Pascakejadian itu, AS telah dilanda demo anti-rasisme berkepanjangan. Sebagian demo diwarnai kekerasan di mana polisi bentrok dengan demonstran dan aksi pembakaran hingga penjarahan terjadi.
