The acting deputy chief of police in the US city of Honolulu has defended his officers who shot and killed South African rugby player Lindani Myeni on Wednesday, saying they “did everything right” as they were in “the fight for their lives”. According to media reports, officers were forced to use lethal force when Myeni allegedly attacked them, injuring three of their officers, just after 8pm on Wednesday night. Myeni’s widow Lindsay and the family are however calling for the complete 911 tape recordings and all of the footage from the police body cameras to be released to the public, as the family’s lawyer told TimesLIVE that the Honolulu police department was “still hiding facts” about the incident.
