A Tiny Little Bit of Police Acccountability

A Jackson County judge found Kansas City [MO] police detective Eric DeValkenaere guilty of involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Cameron Lamb, a Black man.
Jackson County prosecutors argued that DeValkenaere recklessly shot Cameron Lamb on Dec. 3, 2019, as Lamb was sitting in a pickup truck and backing into his garage at 41st Street and College Avenue.

The shooting occurred not long after a police helicopter spotted a red truck chasing a purple Mustang at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour through a residential neighborhood.

So, basically, a cop found a Black guy who was backing the same color pickup truck into his garage and shot him dead because reasons. The police department tried to hush it up, but this time, a prosecutor was having none of it.

  1. Somewhat similar to Andrew Coffe IV, found Not Guilty of everything except being a felon in possession of a firearm the same day as Rittenhouse's acquittal.
