Mentally Ill Woman


http://www.ketknbc.com/news/crimewatch/longview-police-release-surveillance-video-names-o

In this video a 16 year old teenager goes into a police lobby and shows the person at the window a sign that says I have a gun.  A responding officer talks to her and a fight is on.  The officer gets her down at some point but does not or cannot handcuff her.

The teenager stands up as two more officers arrive.  The teen pulls a knife and one officer fires his Taser, for whatever reason the Taser does not subdue her.  Two officers fire their duty guns and she dies on scene.

The teen had been suicidal and was under treatment and had been prescribed medications for her mental condition.  It is not known if she was taking the medications.  The teen had said she was going to try and get the police to commit her.  This seems a tragic case all the way around; that's what the SGT Says.
