    There was no reason for police to shoot Scout!.
    But, please use your spell-check on your articles: it’s not…after reusing – it’s … refusing; it’s not…thier child’s mental health – it’s their. Such a short article

    • Will Kohler says:

      Kinda fixed. We are a blog not a professional media site thus the short article. Also it was very hard to write because of the pronoun situation.

      • Etien De Lamothe-Cassell says:

        Good grief, the pronoun issue is simply ludicrous. If someones mental health is hinged on using the proper pronouns then they are probably unhinged. Obviously, this person shouldn’t have been shot but I’m not a PoPo either.

    Don’t challenge the PoPo, live longer.

  3. The police in Georgia have never been known to deal well with the obviously mentally ill. This was ,once again ,an obvious case of suicide by cop. There is even a startling video.Unfortunately in this case the Georgia Tech police were denied Tasers. In their place they were given pepper spray. I know that makes a ton of sense to me too. Kinda like putting out a fire with a bottled water. Georgia has no provision in the laws there for mental illness. They even have executed people as recently as 2015.

    Wanna bet those officers will be on disability for post traumatic stress? I’ll even make odds they move to a state more friendly to “Mental Illness”.

What do you think?
