Robinson was rushed to a nearby hospital where he fell into a coma. While unconscious, cops kept him handcuffed to the hospital bed. Six days later, he was declared brain dead and his family made the decision to take him off the respirator.

/I think he was probably brain dead before being struck, and what kind of a tool steals cobblestones? Did they run out of copper wire for him to rip off? And yes, he was under arrest, so he was handcuffed to the bed. Duh. I love the way they troll this like it's an outrage that they would actually restrain him while under arrest. Idiot trolling reporter is an idiot.

scottydoesntknow: cman: 2. Who the fark steals cobblestones?

Well unless he had a diamond pickaxe, it probably would've taken a couple hours to get the necessary materials for his scale model recreation of Hogwarts.

/What are we talking about?


What a newb. He doesn't need to steal that cobblestone. All he needs is a good source of water and lava and tada cobblestone as many as he needs.

Okay, so the police say shiat like, "he died running into our stationary car", and we're supposed to believe anything else they have to say about this case?
 
2012-10-06 07:10:45 AM

cretinbob: fusillade762: According to police, the car was stopped when Robinson ran into it.

Sounds legit.

The officer had his gun drawn, and the perp fell on to his bullets also has worked.


Can you please get the info for that? Just tried google, no luck.

porterm: dont care for nyc cops at all but he was trying to evade them. if he had stopped and complied and was legit,he would likely still be alive today. he made a choice to run,and that caused his death. but billing his estate is kinda silly,gonna cost more to collect then they will get. a waste of tax dollars!


Get your tongue off the boot, son.

Happy Hours: ZAZ: I was about to feel sympathetic until I read about the Sharpton rally.

I felt exactly the same way.


I initially thought that 9/11 was a bad thing. Then I heard that Rush Limbaugh also felt that 9/11 was a bad thing. Now I have no sympathy whatsoever for the people who died that day.

wejash: cman: cman: 1. Man was running away after committing a felony. Someone gets injured or killed in the escape or committing the felony it is always the responsibility of the party who was breaking the law, as well as any damage to property is also the responsibility of them



That's not always going to be true. The police don't get to throw hand grenades at people fleeing from them after allegedly committing property crimes -- and then blame the suspect for all the buildings and cars damaged in the blast areas. The cops don't get a "hot pursuit" license to joyfully destroy whatever they like or injure the public in the process. There will always be a proportionality limit.


Don't tell them that.

Meh - somehow I can tune Rush out or just laugh at him, but for some reason Al Sharpton really pisses me off.

Am I a racist?

Is there any money in stealing and reselling cobblestones? This makes no sense.

...allegedly caught stealing cobblestones

He wasn't tried nor convicted, and even if he had been, the death penalty wouldn't apply.

You are correct the death penalty wouldnt apply. If the officers had malice as their intent, they will be the ones on the hook. However, as it seems to be a freak accident, he gets all the blame

Again, he was allegedly caught stealing cobblestones.


"Tamon Robinson's sideline of digging up cobblestones and selling them to scrap dealers had gotten him arrested numerous times. "

Link

Apparently, he had gotten pretty good at the whole stealing cobblestones thing, so I'm not going to put so much into the "allegedly".

There was a time, pre-Reagan era, when I recall reading in High School about early 19th century England executing children for stealing handkerchiefs, silverware, or being pickpockets. The universal reaction at that time was shock and disgust that any country could be so depraved, even among the jocks. Reading over these comments here expressing approval, even joy, that this man was run over and killed by the police for stealing paving stones makes me realize that many of us have become as sick as the people who approved of those earlier punishments.

Because, freakishly enough, driving on the sidewalk and deliberately running someone over is, you know, an accident.

Which I don't have a problem with. F*cking with his bereaved mom is just several kinds of messed up though.

People always die running into cars.

A long time ago, my Dad stole cobblestones from roadwork where they were being dug up and replaced to create a walkway in our garden. I guess he deserved to die too.


yes,your father should die,its only right.

Yes, yes we all know racism and below average intelligence go hand in hand. Don't you need to finish listening to Limbaugh while smearing your ass nuggets all over the trailer's walls?

It does amaze me how many people seem to come to the internet just to scream; "Look how stupid I am!!!"

A similar thing happened to my brother in law when he died in an apartment fire. My inlaws received a $1000 bill for damage. That little tint cost the apartment complex owners $250,000. True story.

AbortionsForAll: It's funny how his racism is based on hundreds of years of collective anecdotal experience while your argument is based on OOH YOU'RE RETARDED BECAUSE I SAY YOU ARE!


No, it was pretty evident I was saying "You're retarded for making a statement based on hundreds of years of collective ignorance that most people with more than 2 brain cells have moved passed." Or "You're retarded for thinking race plays into it at all." I have anecdotal evidence that white trailer trash do most of the scrap thieving in my neighborhood therefore that must be a white crime and this man was innocent.

Let me ask you, are you saying that racism is ok because it has been perpetuated in the past? If so can I sacrifice one of your family members so something can finally be done about the drought? Anecdotal evidence tells me that we did this for hundreds of years, must have been the right thing to do.

rewind2846: FTA: "According to police, the car was stopped when Robinson ran into it. Witnesses, however, maintain the car hit Robinson directly. Robinson was rushed to a nearby hospital where he fell into a coma."

There is no farking way that any human being, even farking Usain Bolt, could move fast enough that running into a stopped object could not only knock them unconscious, but put then into a coma with irreversable brain damage. If he did run into the front of a stopped car, the front of that car would have come up to his pelvis, maybe mid-thigh... the brain ain't down there.

What's worse is that the police thought they could get away with what they did on an entire street of witnesses in daylight.
Lying sacks.

Not true. Remember that story of the Twilight fan at Comic Con who ran out into the street and tripped, smacking her head against a stopped car? She died of her injuries.

This I will buy. I will not buy, however, that the guy was running at a parked car so fast (for no apparent reason) that he dented it. Was he a sparkly vampire or something?

cman: LockeOak: cman: DamnYankees: Why is a 45 year old woman responsible for the bills of her 27 year old son?

I think it has to deal with his estate. Since he most likely died without a will, things get a bit difficult on who exercises what and how. He is responsible for the debt, but since he has passed away, his estate is responsible for the debt.

Considering that he was not convicted of a crime, the damage was assessed six months after he was dead and I doubt he had any estate to speak of, the police will be lucky to come out -$710.

Yeah. These things can get a bit confusing. Not Star Trek paradox style confusing, but close


I'm guessing Tamon's 'estate' wasn't worth a pile of beans since he was stealing cobblestones.

Momma doesn't be havin' 700 dollas.

The cop hit him with a farking car. That's not your usual 'he jumped into a pit of lava, that's his fault' scenario, that's a sign that the cop needs his damn license revoked.

I saw a guy get hit by a car, he had just left Subway with his sandwich in a bag. The guy was pretty much DRT and the cop ate his sandwich while he waited for an ambulance. Cops...

DRT - dead right there.

It doesn't have to, though. Humanity can grow up and start using their supposed vast intelligence for more than picking their noses and lighting their farts. There's absolutely no positive purpose for being racist.
