The 4th Amendment is a Joke for non-whites. From [HERE] and [HERE] and [HERE] The 19-year-old black man who was shot dead Friday during a confrontation with a police officer in Madison, Wisconsin, was unarmed, police said Saturday.
He was identified as Tony Terrell Robinson Jr., a graduate of Sun Prairie High School, a family spokesman and authorities said. The shooting took place Friday at about 6:30 p.m., Madison police said, and sparked protests, including a sit-in at Madison City Hall.
Madison Police Chief Mike Koval said police responded to a call about of a person "jumping into traffic" [does this mean calls about playing in traffic or jaywalking from whites?] A second call to police said the man was "responsible for a battery," Koval said. [Looking for all Blacks? any other details? such as height, weight, sex, age, hair style, race or complexion? Was the battery corroborated?]
Kenny went to Robinson's apartment and forced his way inside after hearing a disturbance. That is, the door was closed and the cop broke his way in for unrevealed reasons. Once inside, Koval said the officer was assaulted by Robinson, and then fired at him; Koval said he couldn't say how many shots were fired because it is part of the investigation.
Sounds Like Bullshit Buddy. Koval also said the officer "followed the man" to his residence where the alleged battery took place. When Kenny, the responding officer went to the apartment, he heard some commotion and forced his way in, he said. "Once inside the home the subject involved in this incident -- the same one allegedly out in traffic and that had battered someone -- assaulted my officer," Koval said. It wasn't clear whether Robinson was alone in the apartment or what the commotion was.
The police did not have a warrant to enter the apartment and the police did not describe any emergency basis for entering the premises without a warrant. The police did not say that Robinson consented or allowed the cop to enter with his permission. The police did not explain the reason they did not attempt to get a warrant. Cops did not say that Robinson fled from the police.
It is unclear whether the police corroborated that Robinson was the same person suspected of the alleged assault. For instance, whether or not he was ever subsequently identified by the 911 caller or the alleged victim of the assault. Or how the police confirmed this information about the dead Black man. Officer Kenny apparently did not witness Robinson violate any laws. The police did not explain the circumstances of the alleged battery.
[The white media could care less about such details. They are more interested in letting us know that the cop rode horses, was probably gay, had received some cop awards (from other white people) in the past and that Robinson had a white mother. MORE]
Grant Zimmerman, a neighbor of Robinson's, said Robinson would run between his apartment and his roommate's mother's house across the street "all the time, even in the middle of traffic." [MORE]
Kenny has been put on paid administrative leave [vacation] as the state Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation conducts an independent probe into the shooting.
Kenny, 45, had been involved in a previous officer-involved shooting of a Black man with a pellet gun, but was exonerated in that case, Koval said. [do not expect justice in a system of racism/white supremacy]
More than 100 protesters gathered at the scene of the shooting, according to witnesses and reports, with video showing the crowd chanting: "Who can you trust? Not the police."
"They won't let us come near him," Sharon Irwin, Robinson's grandmother, told the crowd that had gathered Friday night after the altercation. "I just want to hold him and tell him it's OK. Go home to God. They told me he was evidence."
Robinson's mother, Andrea Irwin, told CNN affiliate WKOW that she didn't understand what happened. "My son has never been a violent person, never," she said. "To die in such a violent way baffles me."
"I can't even compute what has happened," Irwin's statement said. "I haven't even had a chance to see his body."
She was not present, and the statement said she was taking time to grieve with her children. Robinson's grandmother, Sharon Irwin, was on the stage as the statement was read, but left immediately after.
Robinson, a 2014 graduate of Sun Prairie High School, was well-liked, according to Olga Ennis, a neighbor and family friend. "He wouldn't hurt a fly," Ennis said.
She said many in the community don't trust police officers. "We're afraid of the cops," she said. "Who do you call for help now?"
