They don’t want to hear us, so we’re going to have to make more noise.
Shanquella Robinson is in danger of not receiving the justice that she and her family so richly deserve because the United States government has deemed the evidence insufficient. Despite the viral video that shows the graphic depiction of how she was beaten and who she was beaten by, the U.S. Attorney’s Office has declined to press charges against her known assailant. Moreover, the feds have failed to lift a finger to assist in the extradition of DaeJahnae Jackson, the “friend” who was seen attacking Shanquella, despite Mexican authorities issuing a warrant for her arrest.
According to a Newsweek article, attorney Sue-Ann Robinson says that Shanquella’s family is planning to march on Washington, D.C. next month in a protest response to yesterday’s announcement that no criminal charges will be filed. Robinson also released a public statement of her own decrying the feds’ lack of action on a young Black woman’s behalf.
