Woman with Knife, Possibly Mentally Ill, Shot Dead by Police at Costco

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It seems once again a person with mental illness was killed by police, perhaps needlessly. Mhai Scott, 38, worked for Club Demonstration Services, and was serving pizzas at a Costco in Sterling this Wednesday afternoon when coworkers noted her saying “crazy things” and getting agitated over the number of servings of pizza in a box. It is unclear at this time what was troubling her, but she alarmed her coworkers when she grabbed a knife and made “strange movements” with it. Naturally, the cops were called, and as is often the case, the cops treated her as they would any other criminal suspect, as somebody to shoot dead if she doesn’t obey orders.

Indeed, she didn’t obey orders to drop the knife, or the scissors she also was suspected of carrying, and so when she lunged at the cops, they indeed shot her dead.

“Preliminary indications are that she came at the deputies with a knife,” said Loudoun Sheriff Michael Chapman, as the Washington Post reported. “It’s a tragic situation. I feel for everybody involved.”

Nevertheless, upon reviewing the surveillance footage and interviewing some of the many people who were present, Chapman says he feels “confident in the way our deputies responded.”

Perhaps so, but nevertheless, the mentally ill should be responded to differently than typical criminals; they are motivated differently and often their actions can be neutralized without such deadly recourse as this.

    This was a stupid Human Gentile exterminated by the Super jew cops who’s job is basically that! To maintain the war against Human Gentiles while arresting Human Gentiles and killing them and even hacking the to pieces for snuff videos in their jails and prisons and boiling their body parts down with acid and flushing this down the toilet. The Super jews have taken over America and are exterminating Human Gentiles who will not accept enslavement by a Super race of Telepathic, Collective, savages. Didn’t we stop the Nazis in the 1940s? Well, the Nazis won the war and have taken over the United States. Take my meds? The Medical Industry is owned and staffed by Super jews and their job is to give Human people Cancer and fatal disesease. The American Medical Instusry: And Industry of Death! Wake Up!
