LULING, La. — Body camera video and video captured on cell phones shows a physical encounter between a St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office deputy and the sister of a man
"Body camera video and video captured on cell phones shows a physical encounter between a St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office deputy and the sister of a man deputies arrested in Luling Monday night. The incident was a hot topic of conversation on social media and several people sent a copy of the cell phone video to WWL-TV. The video shows Deputy Sill approach Robinson asking to talk, but Robinson takes off running with Sill giving chase.
A woman could be heard asking why they Tased him and as Robinson is brought to the sheriff’s office vehicle, that woman can be continuously heard talking to officers. As Robinson is being put into the car, his sister says something to the affect of “you’re not going to handle him like that,” at which point Sill gives chase. The home cell phone video appears to show Robinson tossed against a trailer. She goes to the ground and the deputy strikes her several times. On that same video you later hear Sill tell someone else that “she came around my unit and tried to interfere.” While MaryLee Robinson can be heard saying she was coming around to that side of the car, she was several steps away from the unit when the deputy gave chase."
As you can clearly see in the video, she is assaulting the officer and he is protecting himself and those around him....She should have followed police commands, but she didn't....You can't record police while also interfering in police activities by saying mean things and standing too close....unless you are fighting for Christian conservative freedom -- then assaulting cops is just your patriotic duty to save America and Jesus......
However, if she was too close when filming the police; she gets what she deserves...Sometimes, if you are so close to recording police activities that you can film police wrongdoing -- that can and should be illegal... I am sure the cops had justifiable reason for doing what they did, so I will take their word on this issue...this woman needs to learn to keep her emotions in check next time....and show more respect for the police.....if her brother wasn't a thug, this wouldn't have happened...
