Let me give this a shot.
explain to all of us how they Knew it was a woman who "called 911 and hang up" what are they Psychic?
No, probably not psychic. The dispatch computer links the phone number to the home address, and also to who owns the phone. If you're a guy, and
you got 123 phone number, if you call the police in most large jurisdictions - which Memphis certainly is- they would know it came back to John Doe.
So they'd know they were likely dealing with a man.
also, why were her "coworkers" at her Home??
Maybe because they're friends and knew she was in a bad place in her head. Not bad enough to suicide, perhaps, but a bad place; Fisher certainly had
a ton of things happening, all which were not necessarily easy to deal with. Divorce, possibility of moving (one salary no longer affords the home),
returning from training, possibly losing her child, et cetera. All that takes it's toll on a person...so maybe they were friends coming over to
watch movies and drink beer together. My friends do that for me if it's a rough time, as I do for them.
theres several possible answers to that, and the Majority of those possibilitys have the distinct appearance that Foul play was involved on the
part of More than just the dead deputy
Your assumption is, frankly, based in something other than the released facts. We just don't know if foul play was involved whatsoever. We do know
certain things, and until those things change, it's illogical to assume that foul play was involved.
Is this how our System deals with people w/mental problems??
just kill em?
What experience have you had with mental illness? Know anyone you're very close to who has one?
And in my opinion, I believe the officers did right; they were faced with a choice, one not of their making apparently, and did what they had to do to
go home. It's what they're taught...and they waited until she fired before firing at her. I promise you, if anyone - sane or not - fires at an
LEO, they will experience the dubious honor of experiencing return fire.
Also, so do people just hang out at someones house like that when they run off? Why didnt they stop her? Chase her?
Sure. I'd stay, and do what I could to alert people that there was an issue with my friend. Since a car was taken, there'd be no ability to follow
it after three seconds' lead, especially if she knew tactical driving (as I do), and how to lose a person quickly. So sure, I'd wait at their home,
hoping that as soon as they got out onto the open road, their head would clear and they'd come home...where I could help.
As for why they didn't stop her, perhaps she waved her service weapon at them. Perhaps they didn't want to get physical with her. Who knows?
Have you ever been toe-to-toe with a delusional person? One bent on suicide? I have. Thankfully, there were no weapons within reach, but had there
been, I have NO doubt I'd've been assaulted...she was going to kill herself by fair means or foul, and wasn't able to because of my intervention.
But it got very physical; I'm not a small person, and she was, so I wasn't too concerned even after a few punches to the face. Bearhugging can work
- but only if you outweigh, and are stronger than, your unarmed opponant. She did not kill herself. But it was dicey, and close.
We all would like to think we'd do something like that if faced with the problem. Most people won't. It's a sad fact, but it's a real one.
Mental illness is not obvious. It is not apparent most of the time. And when it is apparant, immediate intervention must occur.
BTW, do you know what happens to a person when they are committed to a mental hospital? Any idea of the ramifications? In this case, she would face
losing her career as well as the divorce, loss of home and child. She may have thought her life was over...
