I'd have to say yes. It was the crisis centre that advised I call the cops and they took her in for observation. She hates me now but she's alive and doing okay.

If she is doing Okay now she should be thanking you.

I don't think she sees it that way.

So, I guess she just would not speak to you again after the intervention? It sounds like she sees it as a breach of trust between you both.

I'm sure she does. But after a year of digging her out of bad choices (including a Nigerian b/f) and trying to build her up, and fending off her sexual advances, and running every time she hinted suicide, I had enough and handed her over to the pros.

Retraining in use of force and body cameras (transparency and a change of mindset (hopefully)) are in the works for some police services. thumbsup.gif

Quote:All officers on the force in North Charleston were ordered to wear body cameras by the city's mayor on Wednesday. Fifty-four New York City cops in six NYPD precincts are now wearing the cameras as part of a yearlong pilot program launched late last year that is intended to improve relations between police and minority communities.

Quote:The mayor also noted several other law enforcement reforms the the city has undertaken in the past year, including a massive retraining of all officers on use of force.
