    So sorry for your loss, apparently nothing is being done to stop officers from kneeling on people neck: this has been proven to be a death move, I thought they said it was illegal to do this

    It really works my nerves when people say things like “but what’s the whole story ?” NONE of that matters there’s no reason people need to take other people’s life’s , killing someone should be the LAST Resort ! Police or not IDC

    What’s the whole story tho? Why did they “feel” the need to be so aggressive? I was married to a police officer, I know the training, having been thru it myself. I know there’s good and bad in everyone, but this story doesn’t add up. It’s chopped and changed. If it’s truly an injustice and not just a portrait being painted to serve a narrative, I hope the officer is brought to justice. Also psychotic breaks are tough to deal with on the force. And yes, retraining MUST be done to help the situation and inform the officers. But did he have a weapon? Threaten someone’s life? Even his own? None of that is said here

    Clearly they will never learn until they are held responsible and charged with first degree murder. And why were police sent to a mental health episode? They only know how to hurt people.

    Kneeling to control on the back, I do understand, but someone who has mental issues, and use it for a long time, different issue. Do we have the answer?? I don't know!

    Why doesn't it surprise me with these evil dumb American cops? They seriously need to be trained on how to handle any mentally ill person let alone how to be real cops. They are dusgusting and needs to be fired and NEVER be allowed to serve in the police force again😡😡😡😡
