    A black security guard this weekend prevented a potential mass shooting at the bar where he worked — and was then gunned down by an Illinois police officer who mistook him for a criminal.


    WGN TV reports that 26-year-old armed security guard Jemel Roberson was working at Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Robbins, Illinois on Sunday morning when he was attacked by a gun-wielding man whom witnesses say had been kicked out of the bar earlier in the evening.
    Roberson returned fire on the man and managed to subdue him and pin him to the ground.


    However, when a Midlothian, Illinois police officer showed up on the scene, he opened fire and killed Roberson because he thought Roberson was the true assailant.


    “Everybody was screaming out, ‘he was a security guard,’ and they basically saw a black man with a gun and killed him,” witness Adam Harris tells WGN TV.


    The Midlothian Police Department has so far released very little information about the shooting and is only confirming that one of its officers was involved. According to WGN, the State Police Public Integrity Task Force is running an investigation of the officer’s decision to open fire on Roberson.Roberson returned fire on the man and managed to subdue him and pin him to the ground.

    My prayers to the family, may be RIP.

    How awful. This man’s poor family.
    What a colossal screw up by the police. Seriously though isn’t observing the scene and making observations a part of the police’s job? This kill the black man first and justify my racism later is just... I don’t even have the words. It’s disgusting.

    Looks like racial profiling that ends in death as opposed to the daily racial profiling that results in humiliation.

    Well...In most cases they racially profile them because they are acting belligerent, non compliant, arrogant, threatening, etc.

    So... it seems like this is just a thing now. Even the protesting has mostly stopped. We’re just waiting to see who is killed each week, and crying and fussing about it on social media. It’s like The Lottery. When are we really going to fight back? Where are the civil rights strategists? In the age of being “woke”, it strangely feels like everyone is asleep. We’re not supposed to just know things. That knowledge is supposed to be power. We don’t need to completely eradicate racism, get reparations, overhaul the education and justice system, etc. today. We just need them to stop killing us right now.
