Columbus police shooting knife welding man

Post by M-Quigley » ... bdf2369920

Remember all those demands by various groups that a mental health counselor should be sent out when the suspect is suspected of being mentally ill instead of the police?
Forty-five seconds into the call, the man then told the 911 dispatcher that his boyfriend was fighting with him trying to take the phone away. The caller later reported that his boyfriend was trying to attack him, refusing to let him leave and that he was trying to punch him in the throat.

A public safety official said the city's Right Response Unit or using clinicians to help de-escalate a mental health crisis was not possible because there were threats of violence within seconds.
