You are completely insane. This post is riddled with inaccuracies about mental illness. This was not some punk 18 year-old that was throwing a temper tantrum. He had a mental illness and was in an irrational state. THIS DOES NOT MEAN HE WAS AGGRESSIVE. Families of the mentally ill often do have to involve police because there is literally NO OTHER OPTION in this area. You cannot cure schizophrenia through time outs and discipline, you flaming imbecile. Before you go lauding all that law enforcement officers have to face each morning, take a second to think about seeing your son murdered in front of you, then you can talk about perspective. I do not feel one ounce of pity for this officer. He should be locked up for life.
