Tony Robinson

CASE №00206
NAME: Tony Robinson
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2022
CASE INFORMATION:

Tony Robinson, 19, was shot and killed by police on March 6, 2015, in Madison, Wisconsin.

Robinson’s friends called the police as they were concerned about his erratic behavior. Witnesses report that he was unarmed and did not pose a threat. Police officer Matt Kenny, who arrived at the scene, heard screams on the second floor of the house where Robinson lived, and thought that he had attacked one of his neighbors.

The officer went to stop Robinson and suddenly encountered him. Kenny fatally shot Robinson. In May 2015, the district attorney said the officer would not be charged with Robinson’s murder, as it was a self-defense.

In February 2021, activists held a protest calling for the District Attorney to reopen Robinson’s case. In October 2021, state authorities confirmed suspicions that it was Kenny who shot Robinson.
