Robinson was a gravedigger shot in the neck and paralyzed during a dubious drug raid. He died of his injuries six weeks later. A federal civil jury found that three officers had used excessive force, falsified evidence (planted a weapon, presented into evidence a newly-bought polo shirt as the victim’s, etc.), and falsely arrested Robinson. Ultimately Robinson’s heirs settled with the city for $1M.
