Nursing home resident dead after confrontation with police – U.S. News


Nursing home resident dead after confrontation with police – U.S. News.

Granted, he may have died from the complications of being elderly. I have difficulty seeing that the police’s treatment of him did not incur an effect. The question I have, if it was a nursing home, where were the orderlies? Could they not have resolved this with the gent in a more reasonable manner? Orderlies are trained in physical restraint. They can do so in such ways that do not injure or kill. The police are even trained in such matters. Okay, wtf? Did they just say “oh fuck it, he’s an old geezer just zap and shoot him and be done”? From what’s reported that sounds the case. Quite sad, really.
