12 x more likely to kill a citizen than kill themselves and no one thinks this is a problem?
Cowards or Heroes?
The Statistics Behind a Cop's Right to Murder the Mentally Ill
Thank God we have cops. One that I know tells people that he is a garbage collector and in a way that is an apt description, taking the garbage off the streets so that society can be a bit safer. I know it is a hard job and many of the men and women doing the task are good and decent people doing the best they can.
And then there is this coward who shot down a mentally ill man for no reason at all. Yeah, the guy was mentally ill, yeah he had a sheath knife in a scabbard on his hip, but the guy was walking down the street minding his own business till some do good-er called in and said the guy was acting strange. Yah think? He is crazy. Officer James Moore simply executed a mentally ill man because he wasn't capable of understanding or was just too damned crazy to comply with screamed commands.
