Former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe, who fatally shot Rayshard Brooks in a Wendy's parking lot, was granted a $500,000 bond on Tuesday.

Judge Jane C. Barwick reasoned that Garrett Rolfe is not a danger to the community or a flight risk. Rolfe will have to wear an ankle monitor, will not be able to have any kind of weapon and must surrender his passport.

The decision came after Tomika Miller, Brooks' widow, asked the judge to deny Rolfe's release.

"[Officer Rolfe] has already shown he's a danger to the community. The way he stood over my husband and kicked his body, and I can only imagine what he felt and how scared he was at that time," Miller said. "Killing him wasn't enough. They stood there when something could've been done to save him."

"While the family of Rayshard Brooks is disappointed that his killer was granted bond today, they understand that this is just one step in the long quest for justice for Rayshard," they said.

Rolfe is charged with felony murder as well as five counts of aggravated assault, four counts of violation of oath of office and one count of criminal damage to property.
