Community marches for man who died during arrest

Community marches for man who died during arrest

The sheriff said Robinson embroiled in a struggle with the police, who managed to get him into handcuffs.

"Somebody's family actually lost their life, and I'm very cognizant of that today", Lopinto said.

The 22-year-old was at a gas station in the New Orleans suburb on Thursday when he reportedly noticed narcotics agents approaching him.

When Robinson's family emerged from Lopinto's office Monday morning, his mother walked slowly, wearily, supported by tearful relatives. "They're afraid of the police".

Keeven Robinson died on May 10 after a vehicle chase during an undercover drug operation by the county police. "But if you're fighting for your life and a brick's there, you hit someone with a brick".

The four unidentified narcotics detectives who took Robinson into custody have been reassigned to administrative duty, a departure from the policies of previous sheriffs Harry Lee and Newell Normand. Originally, it was said he died because of asthma issues during the struggle.

Gerry Cvitanovich (sih-TAN'-uh-vich) is the coroner in Jefferson Parish, close to New Orleans.

"We're confident at the end of our process that that is going to be the cause of death", Cvitanovich said.

The forensic finding of homicide differs from the legal definition.

Charles Barkley Delivers Stern Warning to LeBron and Cavs About Celtics
LeBron's leadership will get the Cavaliers off to a better start than they had in the series opener. "We've got to be better". LeBron James has eliminated the Celtics from the playoffs four times, and the first loss doesn't seem to worry him.

Lopinto said the four deputies were read their rights and gave statements.

"They were in a struggle", Lopinto said.

Lopinto declined to determine the officers.

"From a policy standpoint, we don't train somebody to hit someone with a brick", Sheriff Lopinto said.

While conceding his officers used force on Keeven Robinson, Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said he has not concluded that his deputies administered a chokehold on the man during his apprehension. The 22-year-old black man, who had a gun in the auto and was suspected of being in possession of heroin, was on the run from the police when he crashed his auto into two Sheriff's Office vehicle. However, she also said the family would like to see an agency other than the sheriff's office lead the investigation.

The deputies, who were all white, have been read their rights and are co-operating with local, state and FBI investigators.

"I know they have the expertise because this is what they do every day, but I also understand that an independent set of eyes is something that's appropriate in a case like this", he said. Jefferson Parish NAACP President Gaylor Spiller said she was pleased the coroner's office issued a ruling on Robinson's death so quickly and that "there was no cover up".

"He has not let me down yet, and I don't feel like he will let me down now", she said.

"The NAACP is not behind criminal actions, we do not represent criminals". The investigation into the killing of Keeven Robinson is just getting started, and the inevitable finding that no one is criminally responsible is still months away.
