In memory of Jamarion Robinson

On August 5, 2016, my son Jamarion Robinson was murdered by U.S. Marshals in Atlanta, GA. He was shot 76 times. Yes, you heard me 76 bullets entered his body and over 95 shots fired at him, after the first 60 shots were fired, a flash grenade was thrown at him and landed on his body. We also know that a second flash grenade was thrown into the apartment unit.  Jamarion stood at 5’6 and weighed 150 pounds. After shooting him 76 times he was handcuffed and dragged down a flight of stairs and his lifeless body was dropped in the living room of his girlfriend’s apartment. No medical aid was rendered to Jamarion nor was ambulance called. After killing Jamarion, a GBI agent showed Jamarion's grandmother and my two brothers a photo of the person they came to arrest and it was not Jamarion Robinson. Jamarion had no history of any violent crimes, nor was he a convicted felon. Bullets that were fired (slugs) were extracted from the inside of the floor of the apartment directly in the location where Jamarion laid, which would suggest the shooter stood directly over Jamarion and fired straight down into his body. Police were aware that Jamarion was recently diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia but made no efforts for a mental health professional or family member to assist in his arrest.

Jamarion was a former student athlete at Clark Atlanta University where he was recognized as Freshman Player of the year at CAU. At the time of his death he was currently a student athlete at Tuskegee University where he majored in Biology. Jamarion was smart, intelligent, humorous, athletic, loving and caring to all those he came in contact with especially his family. He was family oriented, respectful especially to those in authority. Jamarion comes from a 4-generation military, college educated family. He was very cared for and loved by many. He was the oldest of 8 grandchildren and he was admired by his younger cousins. We called him Daddy Daycare because he loved children and would keep all his younger cousins and nephew.

Two days before his death, he contacted his coach at Tuskegee University to let him know that he just completed all his paperwork for school and that he would see him next week at football camp. This would have been his last semester at Tuskegee University. I need help to pay outstanding balance to the funeral home for his Funeral Service, Burial, and outstanding attorney fees.  Today I’ve been forced into this position because my son was murdered and he is counting on me to bring those who took his life to Justice, but I need your help.
