What state of mind must this guy have been in when people suddenly bust into his bathroom and start yelling and assaulting him. Shock? Inability to understand?

i'm not sure what happened there.
what was the welfare check about?
who called in the welfare check?
how did the 911 operator get the name wrong?
was the deceased person the one the police were looking for in the first place?

I think most cops are good people.
But even the good ones are woefully untrained to deal with people with mental health challenges.
I work with people with mental health problems, and i have seen situations with police.
It can escalate very quickly merely because the police have no idea on how to deal with these challenges. (for the record, I have seen cops do very well in these situations)
All that said, to me this situation is grotesque and should be criminally charged.
I only bring up the mental health aspect because that apparently was what the call was about.
I wonder if these officers got all amped up they were gonna get to take down some dangerous, undesirable person.
These cops should be locked up.
And I will continue to do my part and recommend to other mental health workers that they get in touch with local police to let them know that the people we work for may be hard to understand but deserve the benefit of the doubt and to be treated humanely like any one of us.

Maybe, just maybe someone needs to go do the same thing to them...... eye for an eye, fight fire with fire, and all that kind of stuff, ya know?

Ok so this video is highly disturbing, two Milwaukee police officers on a medical emergency call break down an innocent mans door and confront him naked in the shower.
They call him Brandon which is not his name and he does not respond immediately so they just start tazing him.
16 times while naked and wet they shocked him.
This guy was crying for Jesus while the cops keep tazing him, it amounts to torture IMO.
Why were these cops so effing scared of a naked unarmed man in the shower?
Guess what? they will not face charges..
Cops have a licence to kill and that has to change..
WARNING DISTURBING VIDEO
The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office said it will not press charges against two police officers who used their stun guns as many as 18 times in the death of a naked man in the shower last May.
District Attorney John Chisholm made the announcement on Friday, saying there was “no basis to conclusively link” Adam Trammell’s death to “actions taken by police officers.”
The 22-year-old Trammell, of West Milwaukee, Wisconsin, died in police custody after authorities were called to report a “suspicious male” in an apartment complex at 5 a.m., according to Milwaukee ABC affiliate WISN-TV. The report by Chisholm notes the caller believed the man, later identified as Trammell, was having a “psychotic break.”
These cops should be charged with murder its just a slap in the face to citizens that they will not be. 16 times a naked, wet, crying, unarmed, INNOCENT man in his own shower.
