Re: “Disappeared in Death

I didn't know Josh and I neither use drugs nor live on the streets. The article provided information about Josh's history of mental illness for a specific reason. Nobody chooses to survive on the streets, dependent on drugs they inject directly into their bloodstream through their scarred up limbs. Those individuals need understanding and help not judgement.
That sentinment addresses a facet of this story.

I don't want to live in a world where police officers have no accountability for their actions. There are so many options those officers could have pursued that would have prevented Joshua Pawlick's death. It seems they sized him up and decided he wasn't worth the effort it might have taken to avoid violence. It was an inconvenience to them so they conjured up a narrative that they believe justified their actions. They will keep dragging out their "investigation" to avoid the release of the footage that shows the real story until everybody forgets about the incident. They will likely settle out of court for a wrongful death suit that may include terms prohibiting the family from discussing the details, and they won't lose a second of sleep over any of it. If they had nothing to hide, then there would be transparency. You commenters who have decided to grant the police the right to kill homeless or drug addicted individuals are far more frightening and sick than anybody I read about in this article.
