"Rather than looking at this process as a series of 'wins' or 'losses,' it's imperative that we continue to push for systemic change within our criminal justice system," the family said. "From hate crime laws being passed to increasing oversight of members of law enforcement, our job is to ensure that positive change comes from this tragic situation."
Rolfe was released on bond despite a plea from Tomika Miller, Brooks' widow, in which the former officer's potential danger to the community was noted.
"I should not live in fear while waiting for the man who killed my husband to be tried in court," she said at the bond hearing, per CBS News.
Rolfe's charges include felony murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, criminal damage to property in the first degree, and violation of oath by public officer.
