    When will it stop ? When will it stop ? Another arfrican american killed because he or she is african american. When will it stop ?! now another question my fellow progressives dismiss out of hand is that drugs that those labled mentally ill actually tortures them from within. Find out whether this poor guy, god rest his soul, was agitated because he was forced to take neuroleptics(aka anti-psychotics, like abilify, seroquel, olanzapine etc the new and not improved neuroleptics or on an older neuroleptic like haldol or thorazine. these drugs are nothing less than chemical torture and agitate people 10 times more than if they were on something like benzodiazepines or have intense but loving cognitive therapy). still that is no excuse for cops to kill him because he was holding something that was not a gun
