Is this too much or were the cops justified in what they did? We report, you decide.
Newly-released video shows police in South Boston, Virginia subjecting a restrained man to repeated taser attacks and denying him medical treatment, causing his death less than an hour later.
Officers initially responded to calls about 46-year-old Linwood Lambert, who was causing a scene at a motel while having an apparent mental health episode in May of 2013, reportedly having hallucinations and “acting paranoid,” according to motel guests who initially reported the incident. Lambert was unarmed at the time of his apprehension, and not initially charged with a crime.
