Such a sad story? Why won't they give the name or names of the people involved in this awful beating? Why aren't they facing any charges?

I'm the officer who responded to this incident. It was self defense. That guy Anthony went over to their house to fight Robbie and forced his way inside. Robbie when for a gun (not the smartest idea) and Anthony being enraged further by the sight of the gun then attacked Robbie which cause the gun to discharge into the wall. In that moment Robbie struck Anthony in the face, knocking him unconscious, and then Anthony's head hit the corner of the table. It's also true that the paramedics dropped Anthony when they were moving him and he hit his head a second time. Anthony died in the hospital when he was taken off life support. There wasn't enough evidence to even charge Mr. Thomas with involuntary manslaughter.

cop my ass! you're just someone who knows Robbie.i kjiw neither party and as a matter of fact i firmly believe in self defense, bur come on really? coincidentally the responding officer trolling topix,when im sure hed be using his off time doing something that feeds his ego more, second of all a real officer would know to never state what you did because if the wrong person saw it,( a supervisor or victims family) it would be too easy to trace right back to you and for breach of information yoyd be out of a job or with a lawsuit. not to mention hes "Robby" the whole story then "mr Thomas" I realize yoy probably want people ti believe you and take your side seriously, but it does the exact opposite when just hearing the straight facts alone would do the trick
