Newark boy, 10, thought cops ‘were going to shoot me’

“I was scared for my life,” Legend told the News. “I was thinking that they were going to shoot me.”
He was soon surrounded by neighbors and friends who shielded him from the blundering cops.
“This is a child!” they screamed.
“He matches the description,” the cops countered, according to Legend’s mother, who shared her version of events from the Aug. 11 incident in a viral Facebook post that featured video of the boy shaking and crying.
Cops got their man — 20-year-old Casey Joseph Robinson — but not before walking off without an apology to Legend or his mom.
Robinson — who wears dreadlocks and sports facial hair — was captured on the next block. He was charged with armed robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
