The words of Tara Shalome Salazar reiterate that her now deceased boyfriend Jarrett Berlin was murdered by Lakewood Police. The Denver Post reports that Ms. Salazar had repeatedly informed the officers that Mr. Berlin DID NOT have a gun, nonetheless they shot him to death anyway.
The murder occurred after Barret had allegedly jacked a convenience store to pay rent and feed his family. Apparently a murderous offense in Lakewood.
Our deepest condolences to Ms. Salazar and we will post updates as they c0me
Jarret Berlin, Now deceased after being killed by Lakewood PD
On Thursday afternoon, around 3pm, a man was shot to death by a Lakewood Swat Team. According to reports, the man was unarmed and had his hands up when he was shot to death on the balcony of an apartment complex near Wadsworth and Mansfield Avenue. The murder victim was suspected in a gas station robbery. 7news reports that a news camera caught what sounded like more than a dozen shots in about five seconds. A witnessed stated that “I was watching right there on the balcony when the SWAT team moved in on him. They found the suspect, they told him to get his hands out of his pocket and then as soon as he got as he got his hands out of his pocket, he put his hands up (and) they shot him.” The mans name has not yet been released. We can assume that he will be vilified and the murderous officers will be cleared of any wrong doing. Our deepest condolences to the family.
