FROM THIS EPISODE

The homeless, black victim killed by the LAPD Sunday on Skid Row was identified today as a bank robber who did 15 years in federal prison. Was he shot to death because he was reaching for an officer's pistol? Cell phone video that went viral is not definitive. Protesters are demanding release of still other video -- taken by officers' body cams.

Also, California’s Republican Party has finally recognized the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay political group founded 38 years ago.

Will Different Pictures Tell the Same Story? 18 MIN, 41 SEC

Protesters marched from Skid Row to police headquarters today in downtown Los Angeles. The immediate issue was Sunday's police killing of a homeless, black man identified today as Charley Robinet, a 39-year-old French national. He reportedly was released from a federal prison in May after serving 15 years for a bank robbery in Thousand Oaks. Cell phone video of Sunday's shooting death has gone viral. Police have yet to release pictures taken by body cams on two of several officers involved in the killing.
