This is a ridiculous smear campaign against the family. So are we to believe based on this information it is proper for a police officer to shoot this poor soul. Who here wants this officer coming into your home in the middle of a crisis? Kill this 18 year old boy who needed psychiatric help and then smear his family. So what? What we will be doing next..attacking all families who have substance abuse problems , no family exists that is not touched by substance abuse of some kind. Called to the house 32 times, clearly the family was having trouble getting the help they needed from the mental health system. We must stop turning our backs on our mentally ill, if we are to become a better society, police have to be college educated and held to higher standards. A task force needs to be trained by mental health care professions, the police should not be doing this.
