Cops arouse a sleeping unarmed man and murder him as he attempts to drive away.

 The family of Lymond Moses is speaking out, calling for the officers who killed him to be fired and prosecuted. The family says the body camera footage of Moses’ death — released on — refutes the official account of how police claim it originally happened.

On Jan. 13, around 1:10 a.m., police claimed Moses’ vehicle was “suspicious” in order that they initiated a senseless interaction. When police approached Moses, he had not harmed anyone, he had not broken a law and was merely sleeping in his own vehicle which isn't a criminal offense, yet they opened both of his doors and started interrogating him. Just some minutes after police approached him, Moses would be killed.

As the footage shows, three officers approach Moses and start to berate him with questions about sleeping in his car. Moses tells the officers repeatedly that he lives nearby and wasn’t doing anything wrong. However, officers saw that Moses had a touch little bit of cannabis in his car, which gave them cause for the escalation of force.

“All right man, well we’re just out here man trying to find stolen cars, we see you sleeping and you bought weed sitting right here,” the officer says. “We thought we make contact and confirm you're alright.”

Moses tells them that the car isn't stolen.

“Nobody said it had been,” one in every one of the officers says. “We just said that’s why we are out here looking.”

One of the officers then tells Moses to “hop out” of the vehicle while another officer tells him to not resist and to cooperate.

“If it’s just weed, we don’t provide a s*** about weed,” one in all the officers says.

At now, after realizing the car wasn't stolen and also the officers admitted that they “don’t provide a s*** about weed,” the interaction should have ended. But it didn't.

For some reason, Moses would make the error of not complying, which might find yourself costing him his life. rather than exiting the vehicle, Moses started it and drove away as officers told him to prevent.

The pursuit lasted only seconds as Moses immediately trapped himself during a dead-end.

“Stop the f*****g car,” yells one amongst the officers.

“Don’t sleep with,” another officer yells.

Moses then deliberately swerves within the other way of the officers in an exceedingly clear try and avoid hitting them. As he drives around the officers, they fire into the side of the vehicle, executing the unarmed man whose only “crime” had been sleeping in his car with a bit little bit of weed.

After they killed Moses, police initially claimed that he swerved toward officers in an endeavor to run them over “at a high rate of speed,” and that they had no choice but to fire.

As NBC 10 reports, during a Tuesday afternoon news conference, Moses’ wife, two sisters, and a family attorney said the newly released video refuted that.

“They weren't in harm’s way,” attorney Emeka Igwe said. “And that refutes them opening fire. When it shows that Lymond wasn't facing a political candidate directly, that he was swerving around them, which they merely decided to shoot through his windows as he went through them, they weren’t in harm’s way. so they got behind the vehicle and that they were still shooting.”

Igwe explained the complete stop was unconstitutional and police violated Moses’ rights by “illegally opening up the doors of his vehicle.”

“In the wake of George Floyd we’re during a different time where officers should be held accountable,” Igwe said. “We’re not against all enforcement. We appreciate enforcement. Many of the officers out here are good samples of enforcement. But what occurred to Lymond Moses by these rogue law enforcement officials must be accounted for. and that they must be held accountable.”

Moses’ widow, Amanda Spence called on the president to intervene in her husband’s death.

“I’m pleading and calling on Joe Biden to please hear my calls and answer and help us get the justice for Lymond Moses that we want,” Spence said. “Please Joe Biden, move for your hometown and help us get justice. Please!”

Given Biden’s pro-police state history, however, it's extremely unlikely that her pleas for his assistance will be heard, much less heeded.

Though this video is damning and clearly shows the officers killed Moses for no reason, Igwe says there's more to that.

“That video is redacted. There’s audio that shows the full interaction from the very beginning,” Igwe said. “I couldn’t help but notice that the audio of the officers once they first approach the vehicle is missing. which video exists. So we’re asking New Castle County Police to not put out a propaganda video. Release the full video, unedited, without your commentary, that has all the audio from commencing to end.”

So far, the department has refused to be transparent and therefore the officers haven't been named.

“Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are according to departmental policy and also the law won't be made until all facts are known and therefore the investigation is complete,” New Castle County Police Lt. Brian Faulkner said.
