According to eyewitnesses, the unarmed boy was eating near a truck when he was killed by a South African police officer. The officer threw him in his van and took him to the hospital where he lied and said Julius was in a gang fight.
Taken to social media, South Africans express their disappointment in Scorpion Simon SA police officer from Eldorado Park police station and want nothing but justice.
AKA taking to social media said;
WHAT EXPLANATION IS THERE FOR KILLING THIS CHILD IN COLD BLOOD, IN THE STREET LIKE HIS LIFE IS WORTH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING? 🕊💜WHAT THREAT COULD HE POSSIBLY HAVE POSED TO A GROWN POLICEMAN WITH A FUCKING GUN?!?! @sapoliceservice_za YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT THESE LIVES, NOT TAKE THEM AWAY. God Bless Nathaniel Julius and his family. 🙏🏼 The worst part is, we all know there will be zero accountability. So after all the hashtags are done and people move onto the next story, they are the ones who have to live with their child being taken away from them. We will not be there with them, but I pray that God will. This is crazy man. R.I.P 👑”
May your Soul rest in Perfect Peace, Nathaniel! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 🕊 🕊🕊 The second frame is Nathaniel’s ruthless, barbaric Killer, Scorpion Simon. May he also trend until #JusticeForNathaniel is served! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾💔💔💔🕊🕊🕊 #RIPNathanielJulius#ColouredLivesMatter
