Jamarion Robinson was a college football player at Clark Atlanta University and Tuskegee University, and had no past convictions, when he was shot and killed five years ago. He was not just shot though, it was overboard. Robinson was shot 59 times and killed, he had 76 gunshot wounds on his body according to reports.
Well, this week the former standout football player’s family will finally have justice. Two officers including a US Marshall were indicted on felony murder charges.
Robinson was diagnosed with schizophrenia months before his death, and was being served a warrant for a situation that happened at his girlfriends house in Georgia. When police came he reportedly, tried to flee and pulled a gun.
Eric A. Heinze, a U.S. Marshal and assistant chief inspector with the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, and Kristopher L. Hutchens, a Clayton County officer who was part of the task force during the incident, were indicted on counts of felony murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, making false statements and violation of oath by a public officer, according to the USA Today.
The reports are pretty insane. I know Robinson was struggling with mental health issues, but the autopsy says he was hit over 76 times, over 90 shots taken including two from standing above him. This has to be hard for the family, please pray for the family.
