The story of Jemel Roberson is another American tragedy with police violence.
After hearing the story of the security guard gunned down by the cops, Kanye West decided to donate to the family. Kanye made multiple donations of $15,000 via a GoFundMe page that was set up to help Roberson’s family. The page’s goal of $150,000 has been exceeded and currently stands at $302,625.
Witnesses said a Midlothian police officer responding to a shooting inside a south suburban bar shot at the wrong person early Sunday morning.
After security asked a group of drunken men to leave Manny’s Blue Room Bar around 4 a.m. Sunday, witnesses said someone came back with a gun and opened fire. Security returned fire, and according to witnesses, 26-year-old armed security guard Jemel Roberson apprehended one of the men involved outside.
“He had somebody on the ground with his knee in back, with his gun in his back like, ‘Don’t move,'” witness Adam Harris said.
Soon after, witnesses said, an officer responding to the scene fired at Roberson — killing him.
