Jemel Roberson was shot to death by mistake by an officer who was responding to a bar shooting. People donated money to his family, and Kanye West did the same, according to the latest reports.

People generally appreciated Kanye’s gesture even if some voices are still slamming him for his Trump support.
Someone noted, ‘Good deed being he from the Chicago area. So let’s not think about the Trump mess with this case.’
