Los Angeles police shoot mentally ill homeless man dead in downtown Los Angeles - VIDEO - Charley Saturmin Robinet

Los Angeles Police Officer shoot black homeless man to death, skid row, mary cummins, real estate
UPDATE: His real name is Charly Keundeu Keunang, a 43 year old man from Cameroon. The main languages in Cameroon are French and English. His family was located on the east coast of the US.

UPDATE: Another twist? Charley Robinet may not be his real name. It may be an identity he assumed. That would explain why he was not deported when immigration had him in custody. Someone needs to run some prints. Turns out that won't help. He came to the US under the false name. Most likely he is from Camaroon where they speak French. He went to France then assumed the name and came to the US.

Even more strange news. There was a warrant out for his arrest for violating parole. That's probably why he ran.

He was sent to prison but prison said he was mentally ill. He refused treatment. They tried to get him to a psychiatric institute. Here are the docs. This is sad. He was to get mental treatment until he no longer needed it or until his release date, whichever comes first. And this is the problem on Skid Row. They release mentally ill people from prison. He was in immigration custody September 2013. Why wasn't he deported?

More video shows him arguing with someone in an orange tent. Then police show up and he goes back into his tent. They tell him to come out with his hands up but he refuses. They drag him out and that's where the other videos start.

From the docket. He was always in a medical hospital.

He agreed to mental treatment in 2005. I think he ran because he was violating his parole.

I see possible family members in Minnesota. That's probably why he was incarcerated there.

Man killed was 39 year old Charley Saturmin Robinet. He was a convicted bank robber who was just released from prison May 12, 2014. Below is from . Born 11/30/1975.

More about the bank robbery. He pistol whipped someone in the armed robbery. He said he did it for money for acting lessons at the Beverly Hills Playhouse. He's also an illegal French immigrant. He also owes a fine of $200,000. Now I've heard it all.

So many articles about this guy.

His criminal case as a pdf

A Los Angeles Police Department officer shot a black homeless man dead around 11:30 a.m. earlier today on skid row at San Pedro and 5th. Police were called because of an altercation. Five or six cops surrounded the man and tried to get him down on the ground to cuff him. He refused. People think the man was homeless, mentally ill and perhaps on drugs. They grabbed him and threw him down on the ground. He still would not cooperate. He resisted arrest. They tazed him a few times then I heard "DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN!" Then I heard five shots fired by officers. The man is 30-40 years old African immigrant whose first name may be Sean. He was mentally ill.

When they went to throw the guy down on the ground I saw two officers accidentally drop their billy clubs and other items off their belt. A homeless woman grabbed one of the billy clubs and held it up like a weapon. An officer saw that and he grabbed the billy club and handcuffed her. She did not hit anyone with the billy club. After the man is tazed they shoot him. It's not gory but it could be upsetting. If you don't want to see that, stop the video when they taze him.

Everyone seems to have seen different things. I'll post what I saw and heard second by second. He's shot dead at 29 seconds so it will be short.Listen a few times with volume up starting at 20 seconds into the video. I listened again and it was said four times from 20 to 24 second mark. Then he's shot five times at the 25, 26, 27 28 and 29 second marks. Lots of profanity, screaming. It's not gory, just upsetting and sad. Here is the timeline.

7-8 seconds. Cops chase him. Black cop was picking up his billy club but drops it to go after the guy.
9 seconds the guy swings and punches the black cop
11 seconds black cop takes him to the ground, another cop loses his billy club
12 seconds woman picks up one of the billy club.
13-14 seconds the man named "Africa" is on the ground and yells "GET OFF ME! GET OFF ME! 'GET OFF ME!"
15 seconds cop yells "GET MA STICK! GET MA STICK!" A cop takes the stick away from the woman. FTR she didn't hit anyone with the stick.
22 seconds the black officer punches the guy as he lays on the ground four times. Two other officers try to hold the guys feet but he kicks.
22 seconds he gets tazed a few times.
24 seconds he gets tazed while an officer yells  "DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN! DROP THE GUN!"
30, 31 32, 33 34 he is shot five times at each of those second marks in the video.

I don't know who shot the guy. I can't tell from this video. Supposedly two officers and a sergeant fired their weapons. I think these two white officers fired shots. I don't think the black officer fired as he wasn't in position. I think that might be the guy that the man was trying to get a weapon from. I see him and another officer trying to get out of the way of the line of fire.

The original video was removed. I saved a copy of the first minute of the video. I added subtitles to this one and updated the time line above.
