of Eric Garner. He was shot at close range with the suggestion of a muzzle imprint in his side.
Now, he struggled with the officers. But he did have a mental illness, and his mother was on the scene.
This doesn't half remind me of the case of Dontre Hamilton, who was shot several times by Milwaukee police and was also mentally ill.
Mentally ill people are being gunned down too easily by law enforcement. It happens too often.
I just think PD's can train, act, and do better. Because the alternative leads to unrest and a lack of faith that LE works. It makes everyone's job in the justice system harder when communities start to lose faith in that system. I don't understand why the people who make bad judgments are so closely protected, because they seem to be the ones who cause the sensation of bad faith in the first place.
