Her Husband Lindani’s death
Lindani Myeni, the late husband of Lindsay Myeni and father of two, is the victim of the police shooting in Nuuanu, Honolulu.
One of the women in the neighborhood reported burglary in progress and called the police. She made a report that someone entered her house and opened his shoes, and tried to chat. But the owner was upset and he took his leave from there. Police could not find any evidence which pointed that Lindani took something from the house.
When the police arrived, Lindani was already out of the house. But the women, who had reported him, showed light on him, and one of the police commanded Lindani to lie on the ground.
When police reached the scene, they just started commanding him to lie down without disclosing their identity. They surrounded him, which made him felt threatened, and he started fighting back. It made the police use a taser on him, but it did not work.
Later the police fired four gunshots which fatally injured Lindani. He then was moved to The Queen’s Medical Center, where he took his last breath.
This incident took place just after a week of a previous shooting in Honolulu when a sixteen-year-old Iremamber Sykap was shot and killed by the Honolulu police. Both the victims were unarmed.
Upon knowing the news of Lindani, his family came forward to seek justice for their beloved one. Lindsay repeatedly explains that in her husband’s culture, it was customary to visit your neighbor. And him taking his shoes off was a way of showing respect in his culture.
She is sure that her husband was a victim of racism. She has mentioned it repeatedly that her husband would be alive if he were white.
While Lindsay is fighting for justice for her husband by filing a case against the Honolulu police, the police department denied all the allegations. They pointed out that Lindani injured their officers. The department also has not released the body cam of one of their three officers who shot Lindani and has also confiscated the phone belonging to Lindani as evidence.
Lindsay and her family were not satisfied by the statements of the department. They still believe that it was an act of hatred toward the black community and are still fighting for justice. They have even collected funds through GoFundMe, which they are using for the burial and the lawyers.
