Title: Cops Accuse Innocent Man of Breaking Into His Own Truck—So They Shot Him, Twice

Police in Mesquite, Texas, shot a burglary suspect and employed at least three officers in their attempt to arrest him, after they claimed he was trying to break into a pickup truck—but the unarmed man owned the truck he was sitting in, and he was trying to fix its malfunctioning alarm when he was approached the officers.

According to a report from CBS DFW, police were called to the area around 7 p.m. on Nov. 8 after an individual reported that someone set off a car alarm. While police claim there was “an altercation, a scuffle began and the individual ended up being shot,” they have yet to release any of the details about what specifically happened and when the officer opened fire.  

Lyndo Jones, 31, was charged with one count of evading arrest, and he spent one week in intensive care in the hospital for bullet wounds in his stomach and his back after he was shot by Derick Wiley, a 10-year veteran of the Mesquite Police Department. The only problem is that Jones owned the vehicle he was occupying, and there was yet to be body camera footage released to verify the officer’s account of the incident.

Mesquite Police Lt. Brian Parrish justified the officer’s actions, telling CBS DFW that arresting Jones was the sensible thing to do, even if he does own the vehicle.

“He was detained because we had received information that there was a burglary in progress and, regardless of who owns the vehicle, regardless of what the actual situation is, if an officer receives a call that there is a burglary in process and arrives at the scene and finds what he deems to be a suspect, it is just simply a prudent matter to take that person into custody and further investigate and find out if the person is up to no good, and if they are, then we move forward with an investigation,” Parrish said.

In response to the statement from police, Jones’ attorney, Justin Moore said, “That truck was his. How can you burglarize your own car?”  

Another attorney for Jones, Lee Merritt, told WFAA News that after police were quick to shoot Jones in the stomach, they then attempted to perform a cavity search, before shooting him a second time in the back.

Within 10 seconds of their arrival, he had been shot it the stomach,” Merritt said. While on the street suffering from his wound, officers attempted to perform a cavity search and he reacted to that, and he was shot a second time in this back.

Jones’ attorneys also claimed that officers violated his constitutional rights by forcibly interviewing him about the shooting when he was in the hospital and his legal counsel was not present.

Merritt noted that in its initial statement about the shooting, the Mesquite Police Department failed to mention that Jones owned the vehicle the officers claimed he was burglarizing. “That was not a mistake. That was an intentional misrepresentation to the public,” Merritt said.

Derick Wiley, the officer responsible for the shooting, has been placed on administrative leave while the department claims it is investigating his actions. Although police attempted to charge Lyndo Jones with evading arrest, the Dallas County District Attorney’s office has since dropped the charge.

WTF???

“…While on the street suffering from his wound, officers attempted to perform a cavity search and he reacted to that, and he was shot a second time in this back….”

He had a bullet in his belly, and they tried to do a cavity search? And then they shot him again? Are there anything BUT sick bastards working for police departments these days?

There days it looks like “police work” has been reduced to shooting anyone who doesn’t bow down in complete submission. I have no sympathy for ANY pig who gets his head blown off.

THAT will teach his ass about dis-respecting authori-tay!

Next time his alarm goes off by accident,he will set his truck on fire and run.

Collecting the insurance is better than collecting cop bullets.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
