So says the sister of the guy that was killed while running at a cop while wielding a knife. Nevermind, I guess, that he happened to also be out on $1 million bail at the time for other assaults, which, at $1mil must have been pretty bad.

In politics because of course protests and rioting ensued after the self-defense shooting.

If we are not going to institutionalize people who are clear dangers to others and themselves (as this man demonstrated himself to be, MULTIPLE TIMES) then the police are often going to end up shooting them when they act out.

There's no middle ground. Either we lock up the crazies or they get shot sometimes. If it's too cruel to force people to get help against their will, then the ONLY other option is some of them will be killed during their "episodes."

I want to grab and shake the families of mentally ill folks in stories like this.

If YOU who know and (presumably) care for the ill individual can't handle them during whatever episode is happening, what makes you think some stranger can be more successful?  Cops are not social workers nor are they psych orderlies.  Stop calling them and being surprised when they show up and aren't those things.

If you call the cops on a violent, crazy relative, there is a nonzero chance they will kill your "loved one".... especially when the person starts attacking the cops.

I'm surprised more people haven't figured this out yet.   Huh?

And the judge went full power of the state on them. $1 million bail...

And now Pennsylvania's Lt. Gov. is losing his *expletive deleted*it, as is the local branch of the ACLU.

Won't be long until Pennsylvania's Communist in Chief, Tom Wolf, starts blathering on about peaceful protests/protestors...

I'm sure the little slug of an attorney general is on his way to Lancaster to admonish the magistrate.

Seems a perfectly reasonable bail SINCE THEY HAVE BILLIONAIRES BAILING THEM OUT.

You want "reasonable" bails? Don't use billionaires to bail out the violent racists.
