Coroner: Homicide in Robinson Death

Update: Family has retained Sweet & Associates.  

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart ruled that the death of 61 year-old George Robinson was a homicide.

JPD Chief James Davis said last week that  SWAT team members and K-9 unit searched a house on Jones Street looking for a suspect in the murder of Pastor Anthony Longino.  Witnesses said police struck Robinson in the head with a flashlight. Family members told WAPT that UMMC doctors said Robinson died of head trauma.  Chief Davis said he initiated an investigation due to the social media comments.  No one has filed a complaint over the incident.

Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba issued the following statement:


Following the Hinds County Coroner’s report, the officers involved in the arrest of Mr. George Robinson were immediately placed on administrative leave. This follows an ongoing investigation initiated by the City of Jackson in response to allegations made by community members present during Mr. Robinson’s arrest. The results of the investigation concerning Mr. Robinson’s death will be presented before a Hinds County grand jury. In the full spirit of transparency, the administration will continue to be communicative with the public throughout this process and we ask the citizens of Jackson to hold the family of Mr. George Robinson in their prayers.

Don't get all excited. "Homicide" DOES NOT necessarily mean "murder."

And if the LEO involved went over the line he/she should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Going to be tough for JPD. Blow to the head is essentially use of deadly force. On the face of the situation, if there was only misdemeanor offense, someone(s) is going to be in hot water in Civil court if not Criminal.

Possibly Tomie Green will give a blessing.

Seriously though, really hate this happened. Has it been shared whether the deceased was being combative/obstructing the investigation?

Is it bad that I hope this was a black officer, and not white officer who used the billy club? Just don't want to see the "white racist cop" stereotype strengthened.

4:36 PM: If it were, bets are you would already be hearing about it. Since you are not, we can assume we know the answer. I may be wrong, but given the nature of media, silence is the answer.

Carlos Moore is on his way to Jackson to find some kind of heir!

Had it been a white officer, it would be the lead story on NBC Nightly News-

The posters here should be happy to know that Jackson has not released the names of the suspected officers. What a relief!

Chalk this one up to the original murderers murdering, shit happens when men have to go do man things.

In the interest of stellar 'shadow writing', the following phrases are noted: "Community Members", "Full Spirit Of Transparency" and "We Will Be Communicative".

Left out of the memo is, "We expect that a throw-down piece will surface in this here continuing investigative matter".

The coroner is not a medical doctor. Her opinion is useless...except for headlines.

May not be relevant but George went to Parchman for killing a man himself

I don't believe the police went in and hit the guy in the head. Mr Robinson must have attacked the officers. And why they search Mr Robinson's house. More to this story.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
