Mother of man killed by NYPD gets billed for dent in police car created by her son’s body


Absurd actions from the New York Police Department (NYPD) has come to be expected given that they have been busted spying far outside of their jurisdiction, establishing offices around the world including Israel, arresting people for dancing, labeling people “professional agitators” for filming them, engaging in widespread surveillance and even throwing an officer in a psychiatric ward for reporting corruption.

Yet it seems that they are trying to one-up their own insanity by actually sending the mother of someone they killed with one of their police cars a $710 repair bill to cover the damage his body did to their cruiser.

Yes, you read that right, 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.”

UPDATE: The New York Times has reported that the law firm behind issuing the bill “ceased collection” after learning of Robinson’s death. “We were not aware of the circumstances,” said a lawyer for Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson. “This type of receivable is not something we pursue when the alleged debtor is deceased.” In addition, the family’s lawyer, Rubenstein, has alleged that there is a police coverup under way, saying the “head injuries were inconsistent with Tamon running into a car.”

Police now consider themselves above the law, and see themselves as almost God's among Men.

The do whatever they want, whenever they want and feel as if they have to answer to no one.


The mind of most police officers is disgustingly twisted. They are brainwashed from the very beginning of their training to believe that civilians are beneath them. Almost to the point that they are no longer human, yet they view civilians as if THEY are the animals.

Disclaimer: This of course does not apply to ALL cops, but the majority nonetheless.

Agreed. And he should have been arrested for it. Not Murdered.

You're right though. You better not run, or resist in any way, because it could cost you your life.

If an accident happens, and you lose your life because of it, it is no one's fault but your own. I'm talking about "other" things that happen to people in those circumstances. Like the kid who "threw himself" off of the bridge and then was tazed to death while he was on the ground with two broken legs a little while back. These things seem to happen quite a lot.
Accidents are going to happen. I do not fault the police in those situations. I hope it did not seem like I was saying otherwise.
One of my best friends actually died running from the cops, and all he had on him was a $20 bag of weed. He was young and he was scared, and I do not fault the cops one bit for what happened to him. One of the cops chasing him was actually my cousin. They were just doing their jobs.
Now if they would have gotten him stopped, and then a car flew in and ran him over and killed him, I might feel differently. That cousin of mine has also told me some unbelievable stories of shit that other cops have done to people in the past.

I think cops really get a bad rap sometimes. If you take any group of people larger than about 3, there's bound to be a few assholes in there. Cops have a higher percentage, because you have to be a bit of an asshole to take the shit that they deal with day in and day out.

I've probably had 10-15 experiences with cops, whether it be speeding tickets, loud parties, buddies doing dumb shit, whatever. Every time, as long as I was respectful and didn't try anything dumb, the cops were civil and fair.

I've had many okay experiences with cops in my life. And I used to believe exactly what you're saying. But I have had a couple of incidents in recent years that have changed my view a bit.

Now let me preface this by saying that I don't buy beach tribe's claim that most cops are corrupt. I believe those cops are definitely in the minority. But make no mistake, they are out there. There is probably more abuse of power than you realize.

My whole problem with the story is te mom knew her son was a thieving piece of shit. People wonder how society is the way it is now. Parenting.

It would not take much to kill a guy if you pingpong his head off of metal and concrete. I doubt they did it on purpose. Maybe require criminals to wear helmets when fleeing from a crime?

Them sending the bill was prbably an accident, as different dept sends those.

Them raiding the house? Not so much.

Maybe if she spent the same amount of time parenting as she is protesting now, he would still be alive.

Wish i could say the same. I've seen plenty on both sides.

I've seen the good cops, and i've seen the PoS cops. In my experience, it's about 50/50.

However, the bad cops are remembered far more often than the good imo.
