In more sad and frustrating news, Officer Matt Kenny, the Madison, Wisconsin policeman responsible for shooting and killing unarmed 19-year-old Tony Robinson, Jr. on March 6, will not face prosecution. The police union praised the decision, announced by Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, who also happens to be the first district attorney of color in the state.
“My decision will not bring Tony Robinson Jr. back,” Ozanne told reporters. “My decision will not end the racial disparities that exist in the justice system, in our justice system. My decision is not based on emotion. Rather, this decision is based on the facts as they have been investigated and reported to me.”
Protests and marches are happening all over the city. Team Blackness discussed the case in great detail and also had a visit from Mama White.
