Monteria Robinson has been working to get justice for her son Jamarion Robinson, 26, was murdered by U.S. Marshals at an apartment complex in East Point, GA, a suburb of Atlanta. The incident took place on August 5, 2016.
“If you look at his autopsy report, my son was shot over 50 times, my son has a total of 76 bullet holes to his body,” Monteria said. Eric Heinze of the U.S. Marshals and Clayton County Police Officer Kristopher Hutchens were among a 16-man task force seeking to arrest Jamarion Robinson on warrants related to him reportedly pointing a gun at police, The Associated Press reported. Heinze and Hutchens have both been charged with felony murder, aggravated assault, burglary, making false statements and violation of oath by a officer after the case was brought to a grand jury in October by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
“I was like if he wouldn’t have taken my son’s case before a grand jury because his time was up, to me in August of 2020, so being that he got voted out, I was like OK, onto the next D.A.,” the 53-year-old mother said. Monteria says Jamarion was loved by his friends and family and attended Clark Atlanta University before going to Tuskegee University.
During the past five years Robinson attended numerous rallies, events, press conferences and placed murals throughout Atlanta to bring awareness to the case. “I was like, this is what I’m going to do, since y’all not going to say my son’s name, y’all going to see his face every corner y’all turn,” she said.
Robinson has created a GoFundMe page to help with costs associated with hiring experts and investigators helping her with Jamarion’s case.
The U.S. Marshals Service sent Atlanta Black Star a statement saying, “aware of the indictment of Senior Inspector Eric Heinze by a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, and the alleged charges against him. The shooting incident referenced has been fully investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and reviewed by the US Department of Justice Civil Rights Division.”
