14 year old boy shoots his mother dead as she slept

                                            Joshua Smith                                  Tamiko Robinson

A 14-year-old boy, Joshua Smith, in the early hours of Monday morning, shot his mother, 36 year old Tamiko Robinson, at least ten times as she slept on the couch, his uncle told reporters after the teenager was arrested.

The teen, from east Detroit, was said to be angry that his mother had tried to keep him off the streets and away from a gang. 

 


Smith's uncle LeShaun Roberts, told Fox Detroit News the teen had wanted to 'hang with the big boys' - gang members in their twenties - but when his mother said no he ran away to relatives. But Robinson, a dialysis patient, who was battling lupus, went after her son and insisted he came home, angering the youngster.


According to the uncle, Joshua broke into his step dad's room, got a twelve gauge and brutally murdered his mother while she slept on the couch in their home.

Joshua's five-year-old sister and step dad, were in the home at the time and were forced to jump out of a low window to escape the gunfire. 


Smith was arrested soon after the shooting. He had reportedly been driving around in his mother's car.

This boy should be put down now....if he could do this to his own mother just because she was trying to protect him imagine what he will do to others. I say lethal injection, juvenile or not.
May she rest in peace.

Na wa o.so does this mean evrytime you reprimand your child you should sleep with one eye open for at least the first week so you can fly out through the nearest window incase you see them approaching you in a strange way.what sort of world do we live in now.14yr old boy? Killing his already sick mother.nway this is an eye opener becos the things children watch,hear and are exposed to these days doesn't help matters. As for those saying its the mothers fault u can bring up your child properly bt he can still fall in the wrong crowd you can't follow your child everywhere. She did what any normal mother would do bt sadly lost her life in the process.May her soul rest in peace

TobiNigeria said...

I just think the kid should be allowed freedom, let him join the gang, let him do whatever he loves. Hopefully, he will die in the process.cos if he bcomes successful and stuff,he will never b able to live a normal life. The guilt will kill him any way

@Anonymous 10:12 AM, why Linda go hide the child's Identity na ur pikin? Abi is he related to you. Linda does not live in Detroit so obviously she go the news somewhere...meaning the Media in Detriot that released the news did not hide the Identity too...think abeg.

Linda, was not the police that arrested the guy, neither was she the journalist that exposed the case. So if the Media and the US government laws permitted the names and photos of the individual to be released...why not persecute them instead of Linda that just copied and pasted?

Na simple question I ask o and if you curse me, u know how far...e go turn back follow u sharp sharp.

JESUS!!!! YOU LIB READERS ARE UNBELIEVABLE!!!! HOW CAN YOU EVEN START TO JUDGE THIS POOR WOMAN AND ACCUSE HER OF NOT RAISING HER CHILD 'IN THE WAY OF THE LORD'. YOU DO YOUR BEST AND PRAY THAT THE CHILD WILL STAY ON THE RIGHT PATH. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW INTENSE PEER PRESSURE CAN BE FOR A KID THAT WANTS TO BELONG? DID YOU EVEN READ THE PART THAT SAID THAT THE WOMAN IS A DIABETES AND LUPUS? DISEASES THAT ARE OFTEN TERMINAL.... AND IN THAT CONDITION, SHE LEFT HER HOUSE TO GO AND GET THIS KID.

EISH! I FEAR WHO NO FEAR UNA O! MAY THE WOMAN'S SOUL REST IN PEACE.

Oh please ! If she putsv d name now u people will strt complaining about insensitivity! Bloody hypocrites u lots are !

the mother might have tried to train that boy well or she might have started too late but which ever way,the boy is far gone in his way and i would not be suprise that he was under the influence of had drug when he shot is mother 10 times.
And, if he wasnt under the influence of drug, that means the boy is completely evil and if not is mother, he would have killed other.
the environment he grew-up from might have grown on him, that is if u ave ever seen where the black live in America, guns are always the power thing for them.
Lastly, i believe he never come into term with his mother health condition and hate her for it especially if he was made to take care of her.
