What is being called by many an execution of Jamarion Robinson by U.S. Marshalls on Aug. 5, 2016, has laid open more questions and demands for justice for the Tuskegee University student. Robinson was killed in East Point, near Atlanta, when officers from the Metro Atlanta Fugitive Task Force attempted to serve an arrest warrant for allegedly shooting at an Atlanta police officer on July 28, 2016. According to his family, police came heavily armed and intent on violence rather than approaching the situation with assets to deal with a possibly mentally ill person with no confirmed history of violence. The end result was a bloody one-sided gun battle that left the 26-year-old riddled with more than 20 gunshot wounds and a community in mourning with the family.
