LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Framed baby, family and sports photos leave a trail of memories and immense pride along the staircase wall, and they are the only way Monteria Robinson can see her son’s smile.

“Every day, I would see him in the morning,” she said, sitting in front of her mantel lined with her son's many accolades--ribbons, trophies, plaques, a diploma. “His smile… I just miss seeing his smile on a day-to-day basis.”

It’s been one year since Monteria lost her son, 26-year-old Jamarion Robinson, when at least 76 bullets ripped through his body, according to the Fulton County medical examiner.

The shooters? U.S. Marshals.

Inside her home, she sifts through the many photos and medals and trophies. Swiping a tear from her cheek, quickly, before it falls, she wishes for the impossible.

“I just want to hug him. Tell him I love him. I miss him.”

But, what she has vowed to make possible, is justice. And she’s ready to fight for it.

“I have to be his voice because my son is not here to tell his story,” she said. “I can’t rest until my son’s story is told. I want the world to know what happened to my son.”

She doesn’t want what happened to him to happen to anyone else.

“I don’t want there to be another Jamarion Robinson.”
