Yet another tragic data point that shows the police really need better training on how to de-escalate and handle mentally ill persons. This is bullshit. Getting tired of the "shoot first, ask questions" cowboy approach to policing these days. Of course, it'll take tax money to do it, and nobody wants to pay for it. So I guess we'll just sit around at yet another vigil and check "NO" on the ballot box for these sorts of initiatives. That's what history suggests, at least.

Is there not some type of monitoring system put in place for someone who just tried to overdose? Where I live I'm pretty sure there is a 48 hour hold for suicide watch, after a person tries to kill themselves.
