Death of black man during arrest in Louisiana ruled homicide

Robinson's family has called for the investigation into the 22-year-old's death to be handled by an agency other than the local police. He

His death is now being ruled as a homicide, Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said. Robinson was allegedly being investigated for drugs and was spotted at a local gas station when he took off in his vehicle.

According to Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto, narcotics officers were trying to engage Robinson while he was pulled over at a Shell station near the corner of Jefferson Highway and Labarre.

Keeven Robinson, 22, died on Thursday in Gretna, Louisiana, following a struggle with four deputies who'd been tracking him as part of a drug investigation. He said the four deputies involved in the arrest have been read their rights and are cooperating in an investigation that involves his office, state police and the FBI.

Ryan Jackson, who was shot by Jefferson Parish deputies during a drug investigation a year ago, recently filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the sheriff's office, the Advocate reported.

"And when the police do press them, we want them to be able to stand and let the police do their job", Robinson said.

"For me it means unity, coming together and pretty much just supporting the family", protester Regina Hollins told WWL-News.

Sure enough, the coroner said the man died from "significant traumatic injuries" to his neck, which is consistent with someone grabbing, leaning or choking someone. The sudden, tire-squealing approach of non-uniformed men with guns can be hard to distinguish from a robbery or carjacking attempting, and numerous high-profile incidents involving plainclothes cops suggest that people respond differently than officers are trained to expect when the cops who approach them aren't in uniform.

And certainly the slogan that did come up was "Think Different" keeping in tune to what Apple had as its slogan in the late 90s. However, it has often been touted as an example of a firm that doesn't need to spy on everything that its users do.

Robinson's grieving family is calling for an investigation by an agency other than the local police department.

They said they feared the officers had either beaten or strangled him to death.

He said it was too early to conclude whether a choke hold was used during the struggle, adding that Robinson's history of asthma may have played a role in his death. Robinson reportedly tried to get away in his auto, but crashed. The family's attorney Hester Hilliard said they will be conducting an independent autopsy. Lopinto's predecessor Newell Normand said the cameras encourage "Monday-morning quarterbacking" of law enforcement decisions, in a 2015 interview explaining why he had not and would not support adding the equipment.

Lopinto said the investigation would determine if the use of deadly force on Robinson - who did not have a gun on his body but had one in his vehicle - was justified.

Among those attending the news conference was Gaylor Spiller of the Jefferson Parish chapter of the NAACP.

The march came only hours after the autopsy results were released by Jefferson Parish Coroner Gerry Cvitanovich.

"We've been discussing body cameras for years", Lopinto said.
