Protesters demand justice over LA homeless killing

A demonstrator outside police headquarters in Los Angeles on March 3, 2015 protests against the killing by police of a homeless manAngry protesters have hit the streets of Los Angeles demanding justice, two days after graphic video footage that went viral showed police shooting dead a homeless man. Dozens of demonstrators gathered outside Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) headquarters to protest Sunday’s killing, the latest in a spate of fatal shootings of African Americans at the hands of police officers. The Los Angeles Times — citing law-enforcement records — named the victim as 39-year-old Charley Saturmin Robinet and said he was convicted of armed robbery 15 years ago and jailed. Los Angeles police chief Charlie Beck said Monday that the victim tried to grab a gun from one of four officers who were trying to restrain him.
