Police Officers: The Originators of ‘Stand Your Ground’
New Orleans resident Keith “Magik” Atkinson was shot and killed by police, while standing in front of a corner store.
Officers were responding to a call, early Sunday morning about a shoplifter who stole a Little Hug fruit juice. The juice thief was said to be wearing a blue shirt, which was the same color shirt Atkinson was wearing.
Officer Jonathan Hirdes said that he saw a weapon on Atkinson, so he shot to kill. Later, a .45 was found next to the body.
The victim was friends of YMCMB’ s Lil Wayne and Mack Maine, who along with his father has spoken out on the incident. Check it out, after the jump.
Condolences to the victims family, Lil Wayne, Mack Maine and anyone else involved!
