Police shooting of former CAU student in Atlanta causes outrage

The smell of death was still in the apartment. Old blood and bits of brain matter splattered the walls and floors of the apartment of Jamarion Robinson. His family left it that way so others could see what US Marshalls did to the 26-year-old former Clark Atlanta University student. Robinson last attended CAU in 2009-2010, according to the university. On Aug. 5, 2016, in the metro Atlanta city of East Point, Georgia, police went to the Parkside at Camp Creek apartment complex on Washington Road to serve an arrest warrant. Robinson was accused of shooting at a police officer on July 28, 2016, in Atlanta.  He was tracked to the apartment complex and US Marshalls from the Metro Atlanta Fugitive Task Force arrived to engage in what some are calling an extrajudicial execution.

Marshalls arrived at his door and announced their presence and with a few quick blows of a battering ram gained entry. Almost immediately gunfire from automatic weapons ripped through the apartment and into Robinson’s body. Round after round was fired for almost a minute, then there was a brief pause. Everyone thought it was over, even members of the East Point Police Department in the parking lot relaxed. Then suddenly the sound of an explosion echoed throughout the area as police deployed a flash-bang grenade inside the apartment. Again, there was a brief pause and seconds later once more gunfire as the US Marshalls continued their wild shooting. Finally, the ordeal was over and Robinson lay dead inside the apartment, executed by the police. Robinson’s body was riddled with more than 20 gunshot wounds and his hands were mangled from the police gunfire. When his grandmother, Beverly Nixon, arrived after the shooting, she was shown a picture of the suspect that police were looking for and she stated, “That’s not my grandson.”

For the next eight hours, his body lay inside his apartment as GBI investigators processed the shooting scene and gathered evidence. As family and friends gathered around the building Jamarion’s body was removed and sent to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy. Jamarion Robinson then became another statistic in the continuing cycle of police deaths of young Black men. Family and friends never thought that they would experience the tales of death, Black pain and the portrayal of Jamarion of a mentally ill Black man who was bipolar and schizophrenic. The next few days they heard him described in the media in ways that were in direct opposition to Jamarion’s character. Various media outlets engaged in a pattern of victim blaming.

The family turned to the offices of the Davis-Bozeman Law Firm for help and to activists in the Black Lives Matter movement to sound the call to action. Rashid McCall, senior investigator with Opposition Research, LLC investigated the circumstances surrounding Jamarion’s death. What he uncovered was something that rocked him to his core as a professional and a Black man. According to McCall’s investigation, there were more than 50 bullet holes from police assault rifles. Weapons so powerful that rounds went through walls into the vacant apartment next to Jamarion’s, as well as the surrounding area. McCall was methodical as he observed a blood trail going down the stairs as if Jamarion’s body was dragged down the steps after being shot. At the top of the stairwell, there was a large pool of blood soaking into the carpet. But something caught his eye about this  piece of carpet; there were bullet holes going into the floor. McCall cut out a square of the carpet and recovered mushroomed bullets that indicated to him that someone stood over Jamarion and fired downward into his body.

The fact that McCall was able to recover the bullets, something that the GBI missed, led him to state that in his 16 years of experience that the crime scene was “Not professionally processed” and the investigation “should have taken days not hours.”

On Sunday, Aug. 14, 2016, the community and activists were invited to walk through the apartment and view a three-minute video shot by a neighbor during the police encounter. During a press conference, McCall stated that when he examined Robinson’s body at the funeral home, he discovered an entry and exit wound to the back of Robinson’s head, a fact that was not known to other family members. The revelation caused Robinson’s grandmother to scream, “They murdered my baby.” People in the crowd were visibly shaken and some began to cry.

A group of friends who grew up with Jamarion were  both saddened and outraged by his death and the viewing of the crime scene. These friends were fellow CAU students and football teammates of  Jamarion who was a running back at Tuskegee University and CAU. Robinson’s friend, Michael Copeland, a graduate of CAU with a degree in criminal justice stated, “People don’t understand until it hits close to home. Jamarion was never violent, he was very gifted. He was disciplined in his life. But because they said he was mentally ill they are trying to paint this  picture of a mentally ill Black man. Knowing he suffered from an illness why didn’t they approach this differently. They had time. No one reached out, just another Black man dead.”

Another friend identified as Mosiah Ben-David, another CAU graduate, stated, “Mental illness in the Black community is a serious issue. Mental health means being aware of your full potential. Jamarion was a Black man in America. This is target practice on our people.”

Mawuli Davis of the Davis-Bozeman Law Firm stated to the crowd, “All of you came out on a Sunday when you could have been at home doing other things. This shows that the community is aware and concerned. We must share Jamarion’s story just like you would these videos of cute cats and other things we see in social media. … We made a choice to not talk to the police first about Jamarion’s death. We decided to come to the community first, to let you see the crime scene. To let you, the community, bear witness to the video and the number of shots fired. To let you see the bullet holes and the blood. Because of the circumstances surrounding his death we are requesting a federal investigation on behalf of the family.”

The investigation into Robinson’s death is still ongoing by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Family members have stated because of the actions so far by the GBI, they have no confidence that justice will be done for Jamarion Robinson. According to Attorney Davis, the East Point Police Department has made it clear that they were not a part of the US Marshall takedown and have not reached out to the family in any way.

    So this article doesn’t address major questions. Like was the victim armed with a gun when the police entered the premises? If so, was his gun discharged? Did he actually shoot at the cops a few days earlier?

    Those very important points either make this a murder or police policing.

    • Taiasha Reese on August 15, 2016 at 9:55 pm

      Those points have no bearing. This is a matter of executing another person of color without due process.

      • nastinupe on August 16, 2016 at 7:52 am

        They have bearing because guess what, the police aren’t robots, they are people. People with families. The have fear and anxiety just like anyone else. If this guy did indeed SHOOT at the cops and the cops knew where he lived by looking up his license, what in the hell do you think that they did to prepare to apprehend this man? Of course they came to the door… with a warrant, with guns locked and loaded, prepared for a confrontation. That’s common sense. If the cop at the front door of this man’s house was your husband, would you advise him any differently? Would you have told him to simply knock on the door with a balloon and roses for the man? I’m all for fair treatment of our black brothers by the cops, but there are instances where people simply get what’s coming to them. And if this guy did have a gun when they came in and started shooting then the cops had every right to shoot him… repeatedly. At that point it’s no longer about apprehension, it’s about protecting themselves so that they can make it home to their families.

        • Kraphael92 on August 16, 2016 at 8:31 am

          How may have times does this need to happen before you see a pattern? Smh.

        • Queen on August 16, 2016 at 11:58 am

          You don’t even have the full story yourself, you’re just making assumption’s in support of the police because you have been desensitized of the killing of your own people to immediately feel its got to be the young mans fault in some way, even though the police went looking for a Criminal, Busted in the wrong residence, where I’m sure the Brotha was unaware that police was coming for him, Police have a protical to follow that they only seem to use for certain people, they have Teaser’s and bean bags that can be used instead of discharging 50 rounds into a human body – Yes police have a difficult job but that doesn’t give them the Authority to take lives, Just like Police officers have family so does these Human beings they’re killing with impunity, People have Constitutional rights by law an those rights are being violated by the same people we pay with tax dollars To Protect an Serve – Not Murder, — I say murder because if most cases are not going through the full extent of Due Processing by law then it is indeed Murder….

          • nosey rosy on August 16, 2016 at 7:57 pm

            IF you wanna go home to your family learn your job is not to kill ,, i believe cop have a agenda that they follow , the are real scary cause PTSD is real and if u got of the surrounding a person one is gonna kill that person smh dam shame



          • Bradley Frye on August 20, 2016 at 2:17 am

            First off, I served in the army in an M.P. unit so I have some knowledge of police training and tactics. The first point I want to make here is every cop I have met has been a horrible shot, this answers why you have bullet holes all over the place where they shoot.

            Secondly Police officers are trained to continue fire until the subject hits the ground. Handgun caliber ammunition (Usually police us .40 caliber rounds,) suck to no end, to further nail this home- they about worthless. Bodies do not react to being shot like they do in the movies, flying all over the place, ect. There have been completely legitimate police shootings where a subject has been shot 20 times not because the police wanted to put as many rounds as they could in him, but because he wouldn’t drop. This is why in these articles you hear about this amount of ordnance being used. As for the legitimacy of this shooting? I’ll wait for more details to emerge before I weigh in on that.



          • FlipQ on August 13, 2017 at 4:35 pm

            Since you say you have some knowledge please explain: first: Why did they shoot an unarmed person in the first place? Aren’t trained police persons supposed to establish someone is armed before they shoot? Next: they smashed in the door. What would you do at 1:30 in the morning if someone was smashing in your door? Run toward the sound? Finally; Why, after all of the shooting and examining of the crime scene, did no one except the BLA guy find spent bullets in the carpet? and lastly; if they can’t shoot (or as it seems police) why are they even allowed to hold the positions they hold?



          • Bradley Frye on August 13, 2017 at 5:53 pm

            What I said only had to do with police training and tactics not the legitimacy of that particular sbooting. I dont remember the details of that shooting off hand since i posted that a year ago, and I’m sure you know those details better than me. If the perp was truely unarmed the police officers need to be prosecuted. If they werent prosecuted call it a miscarriage of justice.



          • Cerita O'nikkia on August 6, 2017 at 9:17 am

            And i bet he was sayin i m innocent n they didnt believe him



        • kazuya kamenashi on August 17, 2016 at 8:52 pm

          again go watch the video of the home owner who went back to the scene and looked it over the police shot as soon as they gained entry there is zero return fire in their direction, he had no weapon and did not fire at them. A gun battle requires both parties to be receiving fire and in this case only one side took fire as in all of it he cant shoot back if he had nothing to shoot with there are no return fire

      • spencer60 on August 16, 2016 at 7:54 am

        It’s not ‘execution’ to shoot someone who’s shooting at you… so yes, those points DO matter.

        • Jolly Roger on August 16, 2017 at 4:47 am

          Dude when you stand over he top of a person and shoot into there body that’s either murder or in this case it police so its an execution! Sorry bud but there’s no room in this story for condolences, or points to be made on the cops behalf because everything they did before it even started was wrong, including 130 in the morning, every dam detail about the whole scenario is of the charts, just plain corrupt brutal, and evil period. and it outlines a major flaw along with all the other police brutality in this nation, as a major oversight and regulation of are men and women in uniform, which are suppose to be conducted in a professional manner not a reckless Jovian one, its time to bring some oversight and responsibility to are young men in women in uniform so, they can uphold the law, not be the LAW!

      • Old Coot on August 16, 2016 at 7:03 pm

        you refuse to look at the facts. He did shoot at the police first..

        • Corey L on August 16, 2016 at 11:22 pm

          Where’s that fact at?

        • Bob S on August 18, 2016 at 4:47 pm

          Fact.. You dont have to shoot at police first for them to shoot at you.. Hell you dont even need a weapon.. You just have to pose a threat of serious harm or death.. Cops dont go out looking to kill black people.

          • FlipQ on August 13, 2017 at 4:38 pm

            Are you sure? Explain why the cop shot the black man who worked with the mentally challenged young man, that they thought had a gun while the man was LYING ON THE GROUND? don’t know what I’m talking about? look at the video.



      • Bob S on August 18, 2016 at 4:58 pm

        Taiasha Reese are you saying that a “person of color” should be treated differently than everyone else? If a white person points a gun at someone, go ahead and light him up but if a black person points a gun at someone.. hold on lets let him get a shot off first?? Is that what you are trying to say?

      • Donna Hudgins on August 14, 2017 at 4:04 pm

        They have every bearing, he evidently was shooting at police, had mental issues…was hearing voices, saying someone was trying to kill him, This is sad but why hadn’t the family got help for him? You can’t just shoot wildly.
        That’s what Bonnie and Clyde did – it din’t turn out well for them either.
        But tell the whole story.

    • D Jimison on August 17, 2016 at 8:26 am

      The grandmother already stated that the photo of the suspect that they showed her was not him. Furthermore, if someone is breaking into your house, and you have no idea who it is, you have every right to defend your home. So your so called “important points” are moot.

    • sophia on August 17, 2016 at 11:21 am

      Shut up, policing should be professional at all times, not involve mindless vengeance for a wrong or criminal act. There are too many people like you in the police force which is why there’s a lack of humanity and peace in the US. Humanity and peace is like food – if there’s none left then we all starve!

    • kazuya kamenashi on August 17, 2016 at 8:49 pm

      if you watch the video of the home owner that went back and looked at the scene all the bullets were fired from police there was zero return fire in their direction the man had no gun they say he shot at them he had no weapon

    • Thomas Headen on June 20, 2017 at 9:24 am

      If he had a fun it would say so….

    • Cerita O'nikkia on August 6, 2017 at 9:16 am

      I av seen videos where police shoot right away as they enter the house without warrant so ur statement has no basis

    • Bri on August 8, 2017 at 8:08 am

      It takes one bullet to kill a man. Police fired for an entire minute. Does it take all that to subdue even an armed man? Please stop with the excuses

    • Ida Malone Jackson on August 13, 2017 at 7:40 pm

      One of my biggest concern is that they took no regard for the possibility that others were in the home – children, pets, etc. If they wanted him that badly, why not wait to apprehend him once he left the house. Who shoots up home?

  2. spencer60 on August 16, 2016 at 7:54 am

    He shot at the marshalls for over two minutes according to witnesses. He also fired at them as soon as they arrived, also according to eyewitnesses.

    And you are surprised when they shot back?

    Pure and simple trolling. If he wanted to go back to school so bad he probably shouldn’t have:

    A) Been involved in the crime federal marshals were there to serve a warrant on.
    B) Shot at them as soon as they showed up.

    • Gamergurl on August 16, 2016 at 8:09 am

      Well, I don’t know what else needs to be said. Sad and unfortunate situation but I have known since forever that if you shoot at cops, they are pretty much going to shoot back. Why didn’t the story add any of that? I just knew when reading this story, at any moment, the ball was going to drop this was a completely innocent victim of mistaken identity. I was ready to rage until I started thinking, “Something is missing here.”

    • Kraphael92 on August 16, 2016 at 8:33 am

      Now many times have you heard the police say that as a justification? And also how many times have your heard that police don’t always don’t tell he truth of situations like this?

      • spencer60 on August 16, 2016 at 10:46 am

        Sure, there will always be ‘bad shoots’. The one in Minn right now may be one.

        It used to be that cops could get away with it too, since it was usually he said/she said situations.

        That’s all changed.

        There is almost always some kind of hard evidence showing at least the circumstances. Cops have learned that just like criminals, it’s a lot harder to get away with crimes these days.

        On the flip side the public is finally seeing what it’s like to be a cop. To have your life expectancy cut in half every time you stop someone to write a $50 ticket.

        If you don’t work with the cops to make them feel safe you can’t expect the cop to bend over backwards to make you feel safe. Confrontation videos may get hits on YouTube, but they put both the officer and the suspect in real jeopardy.

        The public and the media has no clue about self-defense law either, or the special provisions that police have under the law to protect them from charges just like this.

        So far the BLM crowd has done an astoundingly bad job in picking the victims they support. All of them I can think of were felons caught committing a crime.

        If they want to convince the rest of the world that they are fighting for a just cause, they need to look at the Civil Rights movement and focus on people who were killed despite their innocence, not on every criminal who decides to try and kill a cop.

        • Stephania Vazquez on June 21, 2017 at 4:22 pm

          Can you tell me the names of those BLM has endorsed who you believe to be felons committing crimes (at the time anyhow)?

    • Thomas Headen on June 20, 2017 at 9:27 am

      Eye witnesses had to be inside the house to SEE that….

        Thank u. These people have no common sense. They believe anything they hear about black people. They just a bunch of dumb ass people wit passed down company and drunk paid for college degrees

    • Steve Neal on August 11, 2017 at 3:10 pm

      U made that up all on ur own. Sad.

  3. stainless on August 16, 2016 at 8:11 am

    learning to surrender “mo” better might not get you shot.

  4. Hop on August 16, 2016 at 6:44 pm

    Everything is not black & white. Of course there’s going to be more questions. But the matter is Jamarion had a mental disorder, Schizophrenia. They interpreted situations abnormally. So for most it would have been common sense to not have a gun while the police are arresting you but who knows what was going through his head at that moment. The police knew this before they came to the door & should have handled this a lot better. There was different ways they could have handled it that didn’t involve killing. None of them got one bullet anywhere but found it necessary to automatic fire over 50 shots, & 20 bullets into this mans body. ASSUMING that Jamarion shot at the police a week before. They came in to KILL. They didn’t even have a right to be there, the warrant wasn’t even signed till 4pm when they entered at 1pm. The GIB didn’t even professially analyze the scene.. They “missed” that even after he was dead they shot him multiple times close range & even a bullet to the head. This is police brutality. He was a human with rights not an animal. Things like this only hit home after it happens to someone you know. He was an athlete, a student, a son, an uncle, cousin, friend, etc. Anyone that knows him knows what type of person he was & knows he didn’t deserve to die the way he did. #justiceforjam

  5. nosey rosy on August 16, 2016 at 7:50 pm

    FIRST OFF COP ARE NOT FOLLOWING PROTOCAL
    bigger question is was his gun registered? did he point or threaten and if he was inside the apartm how and why would bullet rang out , almost like when they slaughted that female holding her son . .people hate police .people dont trust nor respect cops due to constant killing
    cops grew angry over the fact everybody got video phone and usually murders the sweep under rug is now on twitter ,cop are caught sexual harrassing , and sleeping in cars now day they are force to do real policing which means u dont shoot to kill a person unless threaten and racism is eye opening now cause they would not just start shooting up in a white persons apartment children could been shot and unless that man ran out shooting at them
    HE WAS INNOCENT what make them think its ok? and where are black cops in all this VERY QUIET .. COP ARE JUDGE JURY AND EXECUTIONER
    AND THAT NEEDS AN IMMEDIATE STOP

    “Man Not Charged After Shooting and Killing SWAT Officer in No-Knock Raid”
    http://theantimedia.org/man-shot-killed-police-officer-will-charged/

  7. Tami Lindsay on August 18, 2016 at 3:51 am

    Everyone commenting and arguing seems to miss the most important detail. This was not the guy they were looking for. They busted into the wrong man’s home. If the man did have a gun, I’m sure he grabbed it when he heard his door being busted in as the police did not knock and announce themselves before busting in and starting to shoot.

    • Bob S on August 18, 2016 at 4:55 pm

      Where do you see that? I have checked every story I could find online about this and not one mentioned that this guy was the wrong guy..

      • Tami Lindsay on August 18, 2016 at 5:33 pm

        It’s in this story!!!! But people with an agenda see what they want to see i guess.

        “When his grandmother, Beverly Nixon, arrived after the shooting, she was shown a picture of the suspect that police were looking for and she stated, “That’s not my grandson.””

        He was not the guy that the police were looking for. But that is another thing media and police do to throw you off track of their sloppiness and misconduct. These other stories will lead with what this man “allegedly” did and how he shot back(allegedly)….but they won’t admit to busting into the wrong house and terrorizing this innocent man…or that they obviously executed him as the bullets in the floor indicate.

        “McCall cut out a square of the carpet and recovered mushroomed bullets that indicated to him that someone stood over Jamarion and fired downward into his body.”

        Fact is he had every right to pick up his gun when he heard them breaking in unannounced…..but now they are using that as an excuse to justify his execution.

        • Bob S on August 18, 2016 at 5:38 pm

          You are right Tami.. People with an agenda DO see what they want to see.. Very good statement..

          Yet.. These same people never want to see the truth…

  8. Luanne Seaman on August 18, 2016 at 11:18 am

    Some people seem to be purposefully missing the point. They kicked down the door to arrest him without a warrant, and it was the wrong person!

    There is a video shot by a family member/friend that shows that the bullets were all being shot upwards to where Jamarion was at the top of the stairs.

    Why were multiple US Marshals with high-capacity weapons needed to arrest someone? If they knew he was mentally ill, why did they think this was a suitable way to take someone into custody? Shouldn’t they have at least made sure to have the right person before doing something like this? Why were they even there without a warrant? If he shot at the police while they were trying to breach the front door, why was there no bullet hole anywhere near it? Why did they need to use hand grenades (also visible in the video)?

    These are all questions that need to be answered before trying to pervert the character of a man that was mercilessly slaughtered.

  9. Tami Lindsay on August 18, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    Here is the video Luanne was speaking of. I hope you all can view it since it is a public facebook link.

    https://www.facebook.com/dee.s.white.14/videos/1146120708762660/

    as of yet, police have not proven he was the person involved in a earlier shooting, there are no bullet holes near the door where he supposedly firing at them, I’ve seen no mention of recovering a gun. The only slugs found so far have been police issue.

  10. Tai Mega on August 26, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    When his grandmother, Beverly Nixon, arrived after the shooting, she was shown a picture of the suspect that police were looking for and she stated, “That’s not my grandson.”
    Clearly they had the wrong person.. these cops fired for no reason other than incompetence and racism.
    Taking a life is inexcusable, and every fool that fired a weapon should be fired and banned from fire arms for life.

  11. Paul Hue on June 20, 2017 at 11:03 am

    His own family declares him to have been bipolar and schizo, but this article omits the facts that:
    – A few days earlier he “exchanged gunfire” with police, which is why the marshals tracked him.
    – The marshals shot him to death while he “exchanged gunfire” with them.

    But of course those facts undermine this attempt to promote the false claim of racist police.

    Like all the other BLM incidents, the root cause here is extremely dangerous personal irresponsibility, the true BLM crisis. Part of that crisis: epidemic of absent or totally irresponsible fatherhood in the black population. Every BLM incident involves the deceased who had no father at all or an extremely irresponsible one, and/or was either an absent or irresponsible father.

    Did this troubled young man have a responsible father during his childhood? Per usual with these cases, it’s only women — mother, grandmother (and always just the maternal grandmother) — speaking for the deceased (or a few cases a very irresponsible father). What’s the fatherhood situation here?

    • Jeremy Rogers on June 22, 2017 at 1:26 am

      You fail to realize that your bullets points are regurgitating the police statements. You don’t know what evidence there is that he was the person who exchanged gunfire the week before or that he exchanged gunfire the day he was killed. You also ignore that the family’s attorney turned over evidence of close-range shots. I saw a video in YouTube of the apartment with all the bullet holes and the area is clear where he would have been firing at police.

      But of course those facts undermine your attempt paint all Black people the same. Or maybe it’s reassuring to think you’re better. You’re also factually wrong in your racist assertions.

      Why do you need to try to shut down a discourse over whether anyone has resolved what happened? Does it affect you or just boost your ego to diminish an entire segment of society? You should study your history and not buy or perpetuate the garbage that Black men are thugs and absent fathers. A lot has been written about this myth, and you reveal your ignorance and your contempt for Black people. You probably get mad when someone calls you racist or say you can’t be racist because you have a Black coworker-friend.

      Fix your own insecurities and quit trolling people trying to find closure and justice while grieving.

        I do not paint all blacks as the same. Most blacks are honorable, sensible people, and thus at zero risk of violent conflict with police.

        But I do notice that all who come into violent conflict with police strongly tend to share a similar profile, regardless of race: they are deranged criminal lunatics, or the unsupervised children of same.

      Funny. Nice speech. Now about u as a father. U teach ur kids to love all people. U should cuz if ur kids come home wit a black person it will hurt ur soul. In my opinion u are a racist. And u are ignoring the actual facts. Ur actually weird showing us ur true colors.

        Steve Neal Bottom line he is a criminal who had a warrant out for his arrest and he was shooting at the Cops so if you think anyone who wants to have a shoot out with the Cops and live to tell about it Guess Again!!

        My kids are black. My wife is black. Who’s the pre-judge-iced person here?

        Me as a father: I teach my children facts & logical reasoning. In this case, their black racial categorization places them at zero chance of being mistreated by cops, but at a very real chance of being lured into the self-negating ghetto Hiphop culture that exposes its participants to many very real risks. Those risks especially include violence by other practitioners of ghetto culture, but also at risk of conducting themselves in a manner that puts them into violent conflict with peace officers protecting the public.

    There is a video showing him shooting at the Cops and it was taken by a Black guy. I am not a big fan of cops but anyone having a shoot out the cops always get killed. I have read several different stories about this young man but he did start shooting at the Cops, the U.S. Marshals the minute they knocked on the door. He wouldn’t stop and surrender he kept shooting and so did them. I don’t know why he was shot with so many bullets. I understand he had mental issues and the family could of tried getting him help but when you are having a shoot out with the Cops it will always end badly. My heart goes out to his family and especially his Mother. That is a horrible way to have seen her son die.

      That’s a lie and u know it. Did u ever see the police take cover or retreat. No. U heard him say He shooting back because he heard a handgun. Vs rifles. Be honest or don’t make it so obvious that u agree wit the police. It’s disgusting. And weird. It’s 2017 and u people really try to ignore the racism we experience every day. Crazy

    Black on black crime/murder happens everyday, where’s BLM activist at…I’ll wait. SMDH you only need them when white cops takedown black ppl. Every action has a reaction.

      It would be too much trouble protesting the 7,000 annual black on black murders, & the perpetrators are too dangerous for the social justice warriors to defy.

      Better to focus on the 100 or so annual deaths of blacks defying police which can be twisted into some sort of law on the part of the police. The SJWs who spit on, course, & assault cops at their protests show that they lack fear of cops. Let’s see them behave similarly towards the gangs that rule areas where black on black violence concentrates.

    They have all kinds of means to apprehend an individual, this could of been even mediated, they have tear gas, they have tazers, many of things differently could of been done, but that’s besides all the point the main point to me is the Brutality behind it all the amount of gun shots, the downward gun shots into the man, the shot to the head, the dragging of him down the stairs why did they have to drag him down the stairs, this all ads up to a brutal assassination on a young black man, they had every intention of shooting him when they went there whether he fired or not they were ready to unload cause that’s what they do, and they don’t always get the chance to do that so there going to exercise them weapons every chance they get. THis is a simple no brainer to me its writing on the wall, excessive use of force, and it becomes that way when they start to fire shot down into the young man standing on top of him, and then a shot to the skull, there trained to shoot center of mass, coupled with the amount of bullets, it looks like a god damn war zone, and like they said its quite ironic there’s no bullets coming back the other direction, this is excessive use of force at minimum, but to put it blunt it was an outright assassination period! If I was a lawyer I would of already filed suite, I know money don’t make up for a life lost, buts its only one avenue that we as people can win, and the road needs to start somewhere cause these assassins need to start being held accountable, and in that lawsuit we need to find out who the man was that fired down into the young mans body, so he can be charged with a federal offense, and be put away for the murder of a young black man!
