Never Call the Cops

Earlier this month, Gabriel Parker of Casa Grande, AZ was shot by three officers from the Casa Grande Police Department after another family member called to report that he was threatening to commit suicide. The family disputes the official story of how and why Gabriel was shot, as well as the necessity of the shooting.

As has been noted here before, the worst thing you can do for a friend or family member who is suffering from a mental health issue and/or severe emotional episode is call the police to “help” them. Unless you’re okay with the possibility that the person you called the police on might be beaten, arrested, and/or killed, you should never call the police. More often than not, they are neither trained nor of the mindset to actually help people who are mentally ill or suffering from suicidal depression. Instead, they generally see them as a “threat” that must be eliminated and usually that means violentlyand often, permanently.

Details as related by the family:

On November 18, 2016 at about 3 pm, the cops received a call from my cousin that my uncle Gabriel Parker was threatening to kill himself; he told them to be cautious because he had a machete. The news and public information officer make it seem like when they showed up he came out unarmed, went back into the house, and came out with the machete. They say they shot him with the bean bags and tazer and after he still didn’t comply they used lethal force.


This is not what happened. Gabriel was inside the house. The police cars pulled all the way into the driveway and stood about six feet from the porch (knowing he had a machete inside). The other officers lined their vehicles outside the yard and aimed AR 15 rifles toward the house. Instead of talking him down they provoked him repeatedly, asking him to come out. After back and forth yelling between Gabriel and the officers he stepped out of the house for the first time, machete in his hand. He was immediately fired upon with rubber rounds and lethal bullets from three officers. He tried to take cover, collapsed and was taken to Casa Grande Banner Hospital. He died from his wounds enroute to the hospital.

Gabriel’s oldest son, sister in law, sister, brother, two nephews, and mother watched this entire incident happen. They asked the police to put down the lethal weapons, they stated they were going to wait for a crisis team to arrive. He was dead within 20 minutes of the cops arriving.

    I’m insane and some people called the cops on me for getting a bit punchy on some inanimate objects. The cops left ashamed after they saw what “they” did.

    On another occasion, I was smoking a joint at a church and a cop walked past, he stopped, mere meters away, looked at me and figured “Nah, couldn’t be” and kept on walking.

    Weird shit that.

    The world is full of stressed out crazies.

    Some of those are Law Enforcement officers.

    Nothing is guaranteed in life.

    Who needs “assisted Suicide” when we have the COPS to to the job for us ?!!! There was a story on the news just the other night about some poor hispanic retiree in Bakersfield ,California that was just out standing in his driveway when a cop showed up because of a disturbance call . In a case of clear mistaken identity and blatant aggressive over the top cop behavior the cop walked over to this poor guy and emptied his handgun into him Killing him instantly !!! Cops in this country are CLEARLY Out Of Control these days and their behavior proves it !!! No wonder almost no one trusts them any more !!!

    Sorry if it wasn’t clear. That was an anecdotal parallel.

    If you abuse someone in a multitude of ways and you project the idea that the person you abused is the problem, you are the problem.
