Chicago Security Guard Killed By Cops After Apprehending Shooting Suspect
Apparently, there is no circumstance under which a Black person cannot be killed. Unarmed, not resisting, hands up, on the ground, showing proper paperwork, even stopping a crime can cost you your life when you are a person of color dealing with the police.
According to TMZ, Jemel Robinson was a security guard at Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Chicago when he had to escort a drunk group of gentlemen from the premises. Said gentlemen then returned bearing firearms with intent to kill.
After a gunfight, Jemel was able to apprehend one of the suspects until police arrived. He put a knee in the man’s back and held a gun on him.
An officer who responded to the call fired and killed Jemel dead on the spot. A witness to the killing said that the trigger-happy cop “saw a black man with a gun, and basically killed him.”
