Why are prisoners awaiting trial not protected from the police?
Seriously

1) any one want to bet that nothing happens, the ME will find no foul play, but no "cause" of death.
2) the judge wont order an independent investigation over the murder of a detained citizen.

/farking so much BS in the country

Remember people: if you want to commit murder and get away with it, join the police force.

FTA: "Court officials said the decision to take Robinson off life support rests with the Allegheny County Jail warden."

Clearly not a conflict of interest.

Brestensky said Robinson was not hanged, initial tests have found no drugs in his system, and doctors are running tests to determine what is wrong with him.

While there are drugs that will cause such a reaction, I doubt the cops would bother to use them. Although I'm surprised they would care enough not to just beat him to death or stage a suicide.

My money is on suffocation--they held the pillow over his face long enough to cause irreversible brain damage, then left him.

Although I can't condone murdering prisoners in their cells, I have trouble mustering sympathy for anyone who shoots a cop in the back, either.

Protecting someone that is in custody is a bad thing? This guy was already convicted, however, what if this took place before the trial. What if he was innocent?

It seemed to me that namatad immediately assumed that the police had caused the man harm, and that the rest of the justice system representatives would leap to cover it up. I'm not naive enough to think that is impossible, but he seems to think it's SOP. He asks that the prisoners be protected from law enforcement, but who then does the protecting. I'm all for keeping tabs on the authorities, but presuming that they are all capable of what he believes they did here....that's sad.

This.

Let us at least give the medical examiner a little bit of time before we jump to conclusions with nothing but the first internet article. We all know they always have all the information up front. Like with that Zimmerman fiasco, the press had all the facts right off, right?

Come on bro. We can both agree that marijuana laws in the US suck, I feel you.

Just don't be stupid. Don't act suspicious (being evasive or an a hole) be courteous and respectful, don't consent to any search you should be fine.

The problem isn't your middle-class ass being momentarily inconvenienced. The problem is that letting police have unquestioned power makes it impossible to stop them from being employed to crush dissent or enforce unjust laws.

Any jail I've been in the last decade or so had cameras everywhere and things like alarms that sound when a cell door is opened at night. Jailers hate it when someone dies in custody, it apparently causes a ton of paperwork. For a CO or some other LEO to pull off a murder in a jail would require too many people to be in on the conspiracy to get away with it.

If they had found him hanging in his cell then he obviously would have tied his own hands and feet securely after slipping the noose tightly around his own neck. This after no doubt somehow smuggling the rope used in somehow.
Reminds me of one of my favourite scenes in my entire golden age of radio collection.
From a 1947 episode of Voyage of the Scarlet Queen - The Scarlet Queen is a tramp steamer that typically stops in Asian or Eastern Seaports and finds some kind of new trouble every week.
In this one a local man's throat is cut ear to ear on the Queen by an unknown person after he tries to talk to the Captain. The local police chief takes one look at the body and immediately calls it is a suicide - case closed.

You hate people you've never met for things you have no idea whether or not they've done. Sounds like you are judging them to me.

And you have no evidence in this case, yet you are sure you are right.
