    N.J. woman accuses 2 police officers of forcible arrest during safety check | NJ.com

    Interesting case. If Leenstra had killed herself, would the cops be responsible as well?

    Cops have a really tough job.

    Sounds like a good case for a dismissal.

    Someone with mental health issues and suicidal tendencies was working with special needs kids? Am I alone in seeing that as a problem?

    Is this something like Racial Profiling,

    where,

    if the cops have reason to suspect a person of ANY color,

    (i.e.: a Black dude robbed me; a Mexican is crossing our border; it was a white guy, in a ski mask)

    the cops ARE NOT ALLOWED to actually investigate persons of that bent?

    'Cuz THAT would be "profiling?"

    Please.

    CG - teachers aides are generally paid less than 300 a week here in NJ. You get what you pay for.

    Suing the police seems to be quite lucrative these days. I wonder how many cases are just "settled for an undisclosed amount".

    Yea, it just kind of seems to me that people with mental health issues are possibly not the best people to be helping impressionable and challenged young people... whatever the cost issues.

    As for the suing the police - it does appear to be kind of 'easy money' these days. I worry about our attitude towards this kind of thing. Seriously.

    the shooter was found incompetent....mental illness

    a friend of mine is serving a life w/o parole for murder....she is fine on meds...off meds...she beats one of her friends to death with a frying pan...

    55-year-old Gloria Hughes Estes of Avery County has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after being found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Samuel Joe Roberson (age 59 at the time of his death) also of Avery County. Estes was charged and arrested in June 2005 near the town of Newland for Roberson's murder, who was found dead from a severe head trauma. Opening statements began Thursday January 10th and Prosecution lasted until late the next morning. The trial occurred in Mitchell County after Estes' Defense Attorney, Gary Triggs, sought out a change of venue last year. Although Estes did not confess to the 2005 murder of Samuel Roberson, the jury heard testimony from State Bureau of Investigation representatives as well as statements from Estes' fellow inmates

    We aren;t allowed to think of how it COULD be for the person that finally lost control;

    we're only allowed to see the END of any situation.

    But, hey!

    If folks could KILL other peeps, when they went off their meds?

    You know what?

    I don't especially want them living Next Door to me,

    or ANY of "mine."

    If meds are the ONLY way to prevent a catastrophe of this sort?

    DO 'em,

    or die

    like the rabid dog that you've turned out to be.

    I'm sorry 'bout that! ;)
