Will Different Pictures Tell the Same Story?

Hosted by

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.
