On Tuesday, Thomas Robinson was arrested by Cincinnati police for the shooting death of 17-year-old Joseph Reno Armstrong Jr. on June 17. However, Robinson, 23, now faces even more charges for what he did when he was taken in for questioning. LiveLeak reports:
In surveillance footage from inside an interview room, an officer is working to change Robinson’s handcuffs when the suspect glances at the gun then makes his move, briefly getting his hands on the weapon…
The officer is able to keep both hands on his holster as two other cops come in to help. The fight for the weapon lasted about 13 seconds before police forced Robinson to the ground with a stun gun.
It took less than one second for Robinson to get his hand from a resting position and onto the officer’s sidearm. Then it takes about one second for that officer react and get both hands on his weapon.
Robinson can be heard shouting, “Kill me,” several times during the struggle. Needless to say, Black men have been killed by cops for much less. Check out the incident below”
