I don’t have anything to add to this, I just want to spread the awareness around.

Alicia Herron, Roberson’s fiancé and girlfriend of 10 years, says she called 911 to request an ambulance for Roberson out of concern for his diabetic condition. But police arrived at their home instead.

Arguably, a simple mistake on the part of the dispatcher (which would be bad enough, if the person were in critical condition). What follows is, frankly, shocking.

“He didn’t have nothing in his hands at any time or period at all before they came, any time while they were here, anything. They just came in and shot him. He didn’t say nothing, the police didn’t say nothing, anything, it was like a silent movie. You couldn’t hear anything, all you could hear were the gun shots go off and I seen them going into his body and he just fell down,” Roberson’s grief-stricken fiancé  told First Coast News.
