Another “unarmed, black teen” shot and killed by police during an altercation, and the pictures from his family feature a high school colors mortar board.

The race bait machine hit the gas in Madison, Wisconsin, over night following the fatal shooting of Tony Robinson, a 19-year old black man who was shot and killed by an unidentified Madison police officer after assaulting said police officer during a call.

As with the Michael Brown incident on August 9 in Ferguson, Missouri, a smaller working class suburb of St. Louis, the man who attacked police did not appear to have a firearm in his possession at the time.

The man was shot after an altercation with the officer and died at a hospital, Police Chief Mike Koval said. He did not know if the man was armed, but said the “initial findings at the scene did not reflect a gun or anything of that nature that would have been used by the subject.”

Following the narrative that erupted in the hours after the Michael Brown shooting of the gentle giant, family members spoke glowingly of the young man.

Robinson’s aunt Lorien Carter described her nephew as “a beautiful young man” and “gentle,” and said, “He didn’t deserve this.”

From the New York Post:

Andrea Irwin, who told WKOW that she was Robinson’s mother, said: “My son has never been a violent person. And to die in such a violent, violent way, it baffles me.”

One of them also asked about the officer’s taser, a theme pushed by many St. Louis area blacks following the Michael Brown shooting.

This time, the Black Lives Matter crowd wasted little time organizing and getting to Madison’s City Hall chanting “Who Do You Trust, Not The Police” and creating further disturbances.  The dead man’s family requested no violence.  The police scanner recording of the incident indicates that there was an attempt to start something at the scene and it was quashed before gaining momentum.  Watch:

Stay tuned.  The case has been turned over to the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation.
