Whatever happened to community policing and cops who had a clue about things like mental illness and homeless folks, and not an itchy finger?
The Lakewood officers just killed a guy because they thought a cellphone in his hand was a gun. Really?
This is not the first time a Pierce County based law officer has executed a mentally ill member of our community for no reason at all, and I fear it will not be the last.
Is this the quality of police we have now? What ever happened to de-escalation? Today, it seems that "deescalation" means pumping a few rounds into someone.
