About two months ago, I wrote about the absurdity of government agents committing crimes in order to prevent crimes.
Last night, in north Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver, a CU Denver police officer shot and killed a man who may have been suicidal.
From the article: “When you have someone who’s suicidal we never know how they’re going to act or what they’re going to do when we contact them, so of course we always take extra precautions when dealing with people who are in crisis or suicidal,” Sgt. Chris Amsler said.
I guess now “extra precautions” includes summary execution.
In 1996, I called 911 to report a friend who was openly contemplating suicide. The cops visited his house and talked to him without any extracurricular drama. Times have changed.
Update: this tragedy happened in late May in Virginia.
