Not only was Jemel Roberson a security guard, he aspired to be a police officer.
He wasn't a thug, he had no troubled past, he was a musician and he was active in Church.
Jemel Roberson was a security guard at a bar. A shooting broke out. He prevented the situation by escalating to worse. He apprehended and secured the alleged shooter. Roberson held the alleged assailant to the ground with a knee to the assailant's back. Roberson was wearing his security guard uniform, which included a hat emblazoned with the word "security" on it.
A cop coming on scene shot Jemel Roberson, he was declared dead at the hospital.
As Vox says, I guess black men aren't allow to be the good guy with a gun.
