The news is out: [The family of a Killeen, Texas, man fatally shot by police in the front yard of his home during a mental health check is calling for the officer’s arrest.
The shooting happened Sunday just before 5:30 p.m. when the family of Patrick Warren Sr., a Black man, called police to ask that a mental health professional be sent to the home.
Instead, an officer who was “was not prepared to handle a mental health crisis” responded to the call, civil rights attorney Lee Merritt said at a press conference Thursday afternoon.
Merritt, who is representing the family, said the officer’s demeanor was “hostile” and he quickly escalated the situation.
The events leading up to the shooting remain unclear.]
The family should be suing itself. Where the F have they been for the last 400 years? Dumb negroes.
