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.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at www.thefot.us And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.

  1. Manuel Miles says:

    Yeah, but look at the bright side: the cops are “investigating” themselves. Just Us will surely prevail.

  2. I think that maybe there was someone else involved that they are not mentioning. Otherwise the cop could easily have declared self-defense (which, unfortunately, wouldn’t be a surprise). If there was someone else then the cop wouldn’t be able to fabricate a defense. Such a tragedy. How the hell did we get here? It makes me sick.
