On May 22, 2012 31 year old Marshall "Mosi" Langford was fatally shot by a Maui Police officer. Police said Langford was trying to flee in a stolen car and allegedly had pulled out a handgun and pointed it at one of the officers, in return the 18 year veteran officer fired his weapon at the suspect, shooting Langford 3 times killing Langford with a shoot to the head.  Genevieve Langford Marshall's mother said her son-in-law received a phone message from Langford at the time of the shooting.

"All my son-in-law heard was three shots on the phone," she said. "I don't know what he was trying to tell my son-in-law, but he nevah have time because they shot him already." I dont know much but, but I do know that he was a son, brother, husband, and a father, his children must now grow up without their father. I believe that when Langford reached for his phone the officer made an irrational assumption that he was reaching for a gun and shot. Alot of people believe that the maui police may have planted the two guns that were found in the car, to cover up a mistake that they made. With that being said the 3 hotel surveillance tapes which were confiscated within  hours of the shooting, as well as the tape of the search of the vehicle should be released, if they are telling the truth then they obviously have nothing to hide, but if they are lying someone needs to be held responsible for taking his life. I've seen people do worse things and still walk away...was that type of force really necessary? Prove us wrong MPD or take responsibility for your actions.

"They nevah give my son a chance to even talk. He had his phone, and they shot him".

      I just wanted throw something out there, I cant help but to constantly wonder if I were surrounded by police officers with there guns drawn at me, Im pretty sure I would have rather reach for the real gun, before the soft air pellet gun....Wouldnt u? I mean a voice message with nothing but the sound of 3 gunshots...a sawed off shot gun in his reach....but he pulls the toy gun knowing the cops gun were not toys... Sounds suspicious to me but thats just me...

      Ive changed the dashboard cam videos for 3 missing survillance tapes from the Mana Kai, which MPD took into their custody right after they shoot Marshall. MPD does not have dashboard cameras. The Langford Ohana expresses there gratitude. Thanks again for you support, Joann Santos

      As a friend and "sistah" of Braddah Mosi... I find it appauling how something like this could happen on Maui. Our officers should know by now how local boys operate, even if they are under the influence of illegal substances. Since when are our streets filled with gunshots and high speed chases. God mercy on the officers soul when he has to meet his maker. Das nuts!
