THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Yes, I know, the police are having difficulty dealing with mentally ill citizens everywhere, but sometimes you just can’t help wonder why police show up heavily armed with lethal weapons instead of first using non-lethal deterrents, including clearing the scene of marked police vehicles and uniformed officers?
Quote from HP article: At QEJ, [Queers for Economic Justice] we are asking again how many potentially dangerous situations every year have to end up in a police shooting? . . . A 57 year old woman with a cane that is attempting to re-enter a building, should not be the target of lethal violence. When police targeted largely white Occupy Wall Street protesters, they used pepper spray. When faced with a vulnerable woman of color, they chose to use lethal force as their first option.”
