Confronted with a massive police presence after his plea for help, Corrigan says, he denied officers permission to enter his house, but they entered and trashed it anyway, saying, "I don’t have time to play this constitutional bullshit!"
What exactly happened though, maybe there was a mistake? Yup there was.
"The number Corrigan called was in fact the National Suicide Hotline. When he stated that he was a veteran, he was asked if he had firearms, to which he said yes. He said nothing about being suicidal or using a firearm or threatening anyone. After a short conversation, Corrigan hung up, turned off the phone, took prescribed sleeping medication, and went to bed.
Here we have a veteran who was depressed, reaching out for help and the response of our wonderful state is to kill his fish, seize his dog, and violate his rights. Yeah, I can’t blame that veteran for being depressed. With the way our police act now, who isn’t? Seriously go read the story and tell me that doesn’t make you loose faith in those who go into law enforcement.
State Sponsored Criminal Count #254: John Doe –Every one of those officers shares fault.
Because when someone is depressed that must mean they’re suicidal and we should trample all over them right.
*Before anyone emails me about how horrible suicide is and how insensitive I am, you should know my uncle, a friend in high school, and a friend of mines father all committed suicide. Two of those were with a firearm. I am quite familiar with how serious it is. However being depressed doesn’t mean you’re suicidal.
