Linwood Lambert of Virginia Killed in Cold Blood by Criminal Cops
According to MSNBC: “Linwood “Ray” Lambert, a 46-year-old man who worked in construction, was staying at a Super 8 motel in South Boston, a town of about 8,000 people in Southern Virginia. In the middle of the night of May 4, 2013, police received calls about noise complaints at the hotel. When three officers came to Lambert’s door just before 5 a.m., they say he was acting paranoid, hallucinating and telling them there were bodies buried in the ceiling.”
When three Virginia police officers put Linwood Lambert in a squad car around 5 a.m. on May 4, 2013, they said they were taking him to the ER for medical attention because he was speaking delusionally. Just over an hour later, three officers killed Lambert.
Linwood Lambert pleaded to officers:
“Why are you trying to kill me, man? Don’t do it, please don’t do it, please officers.”
The officers treated Lambert like target practice and killed him in cold blood.
Linwood Lambert was shackled by hands and feet in a squad car when the final blasts of the taser were executed. Tasers are known to be deadly especially when people have heart issues or are under the influence of drugs. The officers knew Lambert was high on cocaine as you can see in the video, he told them. Still the officers discharged their tasers at least 20 times.
The officers then lied in their reports, stating Lambert got combative at the jail and had to be subdued. Unfortunately for them, the recent video release proves otherwise. Lambert was dead upon arrival at the jailhouse. The officers neglected to bring Lambert into the hospital before killing him, which is the entire reason Lambert was supposedly picked up in the first place.
This current 25 million dollar civil lawsuit reveals police chief and officers deny all allegations of misconduct.
This video should help the attorney suing the police. It took a court order to get this video released. It is illegal to taser a suspect who is shackled. That would be why the video wasn’t released when the incident first happened. The 3 officers involved have all been promoted, even though the chief of police saw the video right after the incident. This means the chief of police should also be charged.
