Reporting on the Tony Robinson Shooting

For the past few months, I have had the privilege of working with the Guardian to cover the issues related to Tony Terrell Robinson, Jr.’s shooting at the hands of a police officer in Madison, WI. The story I did about the initial aftermath of that tragedy highlighted the city’s racial disparities, putting Robinson’s death in a larger context. In the days and weeks that followed, I worked closely with the Guardian’s outstanding senior reporter, Oliver Laughland, to reveal that Robinson had taken magic mushrooms the day of his death and that his close friends, Javier and Anthony Limon, were unlawfully arrested by Madison police in the immediate aftermath of the shooting.

The doorstep to 1125 Williamson Street, where Tony Robinson was shot, quickly became a memorial to him in the days following his death.
