UPDATE: Another St. Louis teen shot and killed by cops last night. Shot between 6 and 7 times, the last shot going from his cheek into his body suggesting he was falling or lying prone when killed
Lamard Joye was stopped by police on Sept. 16, 2014 in Coney Island late in the evening. The officers had been roughing up someone in a Stop and Frisk action and Lamard and his sister and friends were giving the cops a hard time for being such fascists.
One of the cops decided he was going to Stop and Frisk Lamard and so, the fat little pig used his badge as cover to protect him while he stuck his hands in the younger and larger man’s jacket pocket. That’s where the “protect and serve” officer found about $1,300 the construction worker had withdrawn from his bank account in order to take his wife out that night. At least that’s what Lamard says. And bank records turned over to authorities seem to back him up.
Marinelli said he gave the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office pay stubs and bank records to show the money was legally obtained and withdrawn, but the money still has not been returned. AlterNet
“I believe that this officer made an assumption that any money Mr. Joye possessed was obtained illegally, and therefore he would not report the theft,” Marinelli said. “This assumption was wrong. Mr. Joye is a hardworking taxpayer deserving respect.” AlterNet
The officer pepper sprays Lamard when he objects to being ripped off and then does nothing in an attempt to ascertain where the money had come from. In fact, Lamard throws something at the officer, which would normally require the cop to taze, beat and kill the young black man, but, cop-O (capo?) does nothing in response to that either.
In short… the officer wanted no part of any paperwork being filed in this case. That’s because he wanted the money. He’s a thief, a thug, with a badge.
Now I’m sure I will get the requisite amount of folks coming here saying things like “well where did the black guy get the money?!?” and “you can’t prove how much he took”… none of that matters.
