IL - Police Fatally Shoot Black Security Guard Who Was Detaining Bar Shooting Suspect

||| Fox32News|||

A police officer is accused of fatally shooting an armed, black security guard who was said to be only doing his job at that time by detaining a suspect who opened fire with several people being shot at a suburban bar in Illinois early Sunday morning.

Trouble started when the security of Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Robbins, Illinois asked a group of drunken men to leave the establishment. One man from the group apparently didn’t like being asked to leave, and returned shortly with a gun. Witnesses said the man then opened fire and shot at people.

Security returned fire, and 26-year-old security guard Jemel Roberson was even able to detain one of the drunken men involved in the indiscriminate shooting. Unfortunately, it was the scene witnessed by the responding police officers when they arrived at the scene of the incident.

Witnesses say the responding officers saw the black man with a gun “and basically killed him.” Those who were there at the incident also said the people were screaming “security!” but to no avail, and the police still killed the guard.

Witness Adam Harris told the local media: “Everybody was screaming out, ‘He was a security guard’, and they basically saw a black man with a gun and killed him.”

The Midlothian police have confirmed that two of their officers responded to the shooting scene and one of the officers indeed opened fire. The statement, while releasing few details, admitted that an officer “encountered a subject with a gun and was involved in an officer-involved shooting.” It also said that the “subject” was later declared dead at an area hospital.

While authorities are still trying to piece together what happened that led to the security guard’s death, Roberson’s mother, Beatrice Roberson, has filed a lawsuit on Monday seeking $1 million in damages from the village if Midlothian and the officer for the said officer using “unprovoked” and “excessive” force in fatally shooting Roberson.

The officer has yet to be identified by his real name. He was referred to as John Doe in the victim’s mother’s complaint.

Midlothian Police Chief Daniel Delaney said that responding officers also found multiple victims inside the bar. Other than Roberson, four others- including the suspected gunman-were shot during the incident. The suspect remained hospitalized on Monday.

Roberson’s shooting triggered furious reaction on social media, and an outpouring of sympathy for the victim and his family.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Ronberson’s family pay for funeral costs. As of late Monday, the page has raised more than $20,000 already.

It is sad how everyone is jumping to conclusions before the facts are even out.

when the police get in "hero mode" WATCH OUT. their training tells them that "if they see a gun, they can shoot". cops don't do this in civilized countries but instead do everything possible to NOT SHOOT.

This is what happens when ex-military personnel, that are trained to kill and nothing else, are hired in large numbers, to police forces around the country. It's also a symptom of training Police to act as judge, jury and executioners. There are MANY dick head cops that have NO business wearing a badge.

Also, Free Mason cops are not here to protect and serve citizens. I will say this over and over and over and over. They are here to protect the corrupt Illuminati Free Masons that have infiltrated EVERY level of this system. Free Masons ARE scumbags, PERIOD. If they weren't, they wouldn't have to operate in secrecy. NOTHING good is done in the darkness of secrecy.

…. It is Time to reconsider "taking a knee" As much as I disagree with most of the pro-kneeler idiots ….. I disagree with the Militarized 'police" concept more. Divide & conquer … keep White & Black from uniting to demand honest police. by instigating conflict.

So many have written ineffective tomes on police abuse of power and of the citizens. For decades we have voiced concerns. The Militias, etc., were largely born of those concerns. More Whites are shot by police then Blacks —

Why aren't the Fans kneeling TOO?! All you FEMA camp prospects. All those worried about millions of hollow-point bullets that can store for decades.

Free Speech ….. kneel for it.

The police are the ones that Disrespect our Anthem and the Nation by murdering American Citizens, people's beloved pets, People shot in bungled raids on the wrong house , they murder the Rule of Law. Look at all the people being freed from false convictions based on lying police and corrupt prosecutors. Time to DEMILITARIZE the police. What became of those millions of hollow-point bullets? Those FEMA camps await, when shall you speak out?

Yeah sure, the POLICE - — Currently, in the U.S., law enforcement kills around 1,200 citizens per year. Ironically, that number is actually four times higher than those who die from rifles. As has been recorded, cops have killed 450 percent more people than have died in the past forty years of mass shootings.

So now I say why are the football fans not kneeling WITH the players? After Ruby Ridge, Waco, LaVoy Finicum and the Bundy Ranch ALL fans should be joining the Players arm in arm and demanding the "police" start serving ALL the Citizens. The "Thin Blue Line" should be dismantled by any means necessary. There should be througho and objective THIRD PARTY investigations of shootings.

The police have NO Constitutional obligation to protect you/your loved ones. The police can legally stand and watch your loved ones be beaten to death and there is NO recourse. "all that needs to be understood, and remembered is they are armed, and paid, to protect and serve the State. you are not the State. once that is thoroughly understood, the rest falls into place."

9/11 did NOT magically transform cops into Honest Trustworthy Lawmen. Get over the misplaced school-girl "hero worship" and start demanding fair treatment of ALL Citizens.

Former law enforcement officer Matthew Horace explained comments made in his new book, "The Black and the Blue," that describes various police officers as "time bombs waiting to explode,"

Shooting a Citizen and then whining "I was in fear for my life" should result in immediate LIFE ban from law enforcement not a "license to kill" and if you pass the criminal investigation —- you can go work at a Walmart where you will be safe. Shooting a harmless pet should mean immediate firing.
