Officers Won’t Be Charged For Tony Robinson’s Death
Sources report that the officers involved in the death of 19 year old Tony Robinson of Madison, WI, will not be charged. The shooting happened in March 2015.
“I conclude that this tragic and unfortunate death was the result of a lawful use of deadly police force and that no charges should be brought against Officer Kenny in the death of Tony Robinson Jr.,” Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said Tuesday.“I am concerned that recent violence around our nation is giving some in our communities a justification for fear, hatred and violence,” Ozanne said. “I am reminded that true and lasting change does not come from violence, but from exercising our voices and our votes. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Violence brings only temporary change. Violence, by creating many more social problems than it solves, never brings permanent peace."
They have reported that Robinson was under the influence of Hallucinogenic drugs before attacking Officer Matt Kenney of Madison Police. Kenney was dispatched to the apartment after a call.
The recent actions between police and the black community will forever have you questioning whether justice was served.
