Three Officers in Jackson, MS Charged with Murdering Black Man

HeadlineAug 17, 2020

In Jackson, Mississippi, prosecutors have charged three police officers with murdering a Black man outside his own home more than a year and a half ago. A grand jury indictment filed Friday alleges that in January 2019 the three officers pulled 62-year-old George Robinson from his car, threw him headfirst into the pavement and then beat and kicked him in the head and chest. A coroner’s report found Robinson suffered broken ribs and a bleeding brain caused by blunt force trauma to the head.
