Criminals have no respect for authority, and they have proven time and time again that they will go to any lengths to get what they want — including weapons.
For example, a murder suspect in Cincinnati, Ohio, was being processed at the police department last week when he decided he wanted a gun, specifically the one attached to an officer’s hip.
Thomas Robinson, 23, was arrested for allegedly shooting a teenager to death on June 17, according to WXIX. Once inside an interview room at the local police station, the thug can be seen on surveillance footage reaching for an officer’s holster.
The officer was adjusting Robinson’s handcuffs when the thug saw an opportunity, and he briefly touched the weapon before the officer was able to stop him. Other cops quickly rushed in to help restrain the criminal.
As officers wrestle with the murder suspect, you can hear him yell “Kill Me” six times during the battle for the gun, which lasted about 13 seconds until the cops forced him to the ground with a stun gun.
Officer James Ball was reportedly struck in the face causing injuries to his lip, officials said in court records, WXIX reported.
The criminal’s actions would result in a charge of assault on a police officer, at least, and could even lead to a charge of attempted murder, since Robinson can be clearly seen reaching for the gun, according to Mike Allen, a legal analyst for FOX19 NOW.
In addition to these charges and his initial murder charge, Robinson also faces charges of drug possession after he was found with heroin in his sock upon being arrested.
He was being held at the Hamilton Co jail on $1.7 million bond, jail officials said Friday morning.
