Mental Health Crisis: 45% of Minnesotans Killed By Police

The Star Tribune has a must-read feature on people killed by police use of force, finding that 45% of all people killed by officers involved mental health crisis. It includes a collection of all stories of those killed since 2000.

Take a look, read the stories, and ask this - how many more had undiagnosed disabilities, or undisclosed disabilities. What would we perceive in this data if we took a cross-disability approach, rather than a mental health approach?

In other news, I'm working on my book today.
