NYPD Kill Man With Police Car, Send Family The Bill

Chris | InformationLiberation

I remember growing up as a child being told in China they would execute people and then bill their family for the bullet. Perhaps that story should be retired now and updated with America as the new tyrant, specifically the NYPD, who after killing a man by ramming him with their patrol car, sent his family a bill for $710 to repair a dent from where their cruiser hit him.

Via Madison Ruppert:
[...]the NYPD actually sent a bill to fix the dent left by now dead 23-year-old Tamon Robinson, who was killed by an NYPD vehicle in Brooklyn in April, to his still-mourning family.

The incident occurred when Robinson was caught digging up paving stones outside his home in Bayview Houses in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Robinson was fleeing police when the car smashed into him causing serious blunt impact head injures which left him in a coma from the moment of impact. Robinson died six days later, never waking up from the coma.

According to his mother, Robinson was working at a muffin shop while also trying to make additional money by hawking items like paving stones to scrap dealers.

The bill, which the British Daily Mail characterized as “a brutal blood-money demand,” was dated September 27, with the reason for the $710 being listed as “property damage to a vehicle owned by the New York Police Department.”

The bill added that the family would be facing a lawsuit if they failed to pay within 10 days of receiving it.

“We’re still grieving, and this is like a slap in the face,” said Laverne Dobbinson, Robinson’s 45-year-old mother, to the New York Daily News.

“They want my son to pay for damage to the vehicle that killed him,” Dobbinson added. “It’s crazy.”

Dobbinson sought out her own legal advice and she said she intends to sue New York City as well. Her lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, dubbed the repair bill a “disgrace” in his filing.

“In my 40 years of practicing law in this city I have never seen anything as heartless as this,” Rubenstein said to the New York Daily News.

Rubenstein also called on the NYPD to refrain from repairing any of the damages to the vehicle since it would be a violation of a court order to preserve it as evidence in the ongoing criminal investigation.

Dobbinson’s frustration with the NYPD does not just stem from the $710 bill, indeed she also claims that the treatment of her son in the aftermath of being hit by the NYPD vehicle was far from acceptable.

She alleges that while he was lying in bed brain-dead he was shackled to the bed under police guard. Dobbinson said that she was only allowed him to visit for 20 minutes.

To make matters even worse, police “smashed their way into the family’s apartment,” as the Daily Mail put it, on the day of Robinson’s funeral. The police later claimed that they simply had the wrong address on a search warrant.

According to Dobbinson, the city actually repaired her door the same day.

Since the death of her son Dobbinson has relentlessly sought the arrest of the officers involved. She has staged multiple rallies and demonstrations towards that end along with a Facebook memorial page.

While the New York City medical examiner ruled that Robinson’s death was an accident, his death is still under investigation by the Brooklyn District Attorney and the NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau.

The investigation likely continues due to the fact that witnesses allege that Robinson was actually deliberately run over by the NYPD officers.

While the Daily Mail reports, “New York City officials have since apologized for sending the collection letter,” the New York Daily News reports, “An NYPD spokesman did not return a call or email seeking comment.”
So, after getting bad press over the incident, they rescind the bill, how nice of them. It's worth noting, while this story is absolutely outrageous, is it not equally outrageous the nature of government itself, in which the monopolist provider of "services" that is the state, decides how much "service" tax-slaves need in the form of "protection," and sends taxpayers the bill for their monopolist racket? As individuals, you do not get to decide whether or not you want the police's "services," you do not get to take your money elsewhere, you do not get to "opt-out," and there is absolutely no choice between competing services, as competition is outlawed by the monopolist state. This is the reason all government "services," but especially police, are such a complete joke, and rather than "serving" the public, they serve the state. Unfortunately, there's no public pressure against that form of ransom, as all governments the world over carry out the same racket. It's the honest citizens who actually follow the law who are forced to pay for everyone else, and it's the criminals with badges who send us all the bill.

65110 I'm not surprised.

Long ago I read that when a business is raided, they are billed for the privilege of having been raided. You see, raiding costs and all that.

"divine intervention"

in newspeak it's "divide intervention"

the divide is the articles/media which pit us against one another.

i've tried to quote Hegel's "Phenomenology of Spirit" several times on the internet, yet, the network nodes won't let me. they keep deleting Preface, sec. 8. perhaps because it reads on the "divine."

imagine if i could unriddle the bible, using hegel's own words, (translated into english of course). i guess government would have to pay lots of really smart people to watch the web, so people wouldn't start connecting the lines (999) for others.
well, info lib. usually doesn't delete comments, not because they don't work for the state, but, for the reason that it's an intel site. so, this is the quote:

< 8. In keeping with this demand is the strenuous, almost over-zealous and frenzied effort to tear men away from their preoccupation with the sensuous, from their ordinary, private [einzelne] affairs, and to direct their gaze to the stars; as if they had forgotten all about the divine, and were ready like worms to content themselves with dirt and water. Formerly they had a heaven adorned with a vast wealth of thoughts and imagery.The meaning of all that is, hung on a thread of light by which it was linked to that heaven.... - Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit>


out of context, it doesn't make much sense. however, when you apply it to government, especially the "stars", one is to forced to question that quote in the most abstract sense. it caused me doublethink the first time i read it. i had to go back to the rules of logic, and find a way to reconcile the abstract truth with finite logic.
needless to say, it does speak to the shortcomings of mankind, perhaps, the price government pays them to look the other way. i suppose these men are happy with dirt and water, while eternal life belongs to publishing companies.


my solution for this article, write the bill off. it was a poor move by the state, people are realizing the chain of command and their cops are switching teams.
