    An officer, responding to reports of a suspicious person, shot and killed an unarmed man who was running around in a metro Atlanta apartment complex naked.

    The officer fired two shots when the man charged at him, said Cedric Alexander, the public safety director of DeKalb County.

    DeKalb County police officers undergo some degree of training on how to deal with the mentally ill. But this, and other incidents, highlight the need for more, the public safety director said.

    "That's becoming more and more apparent," Alexander said. "We have already, as many departments have begun to do, look at how to expand our mental health training when we find it certainly necessary to do so. Because it appears that we're seeing more and more of these cases across the country in which police are engaging with those who appear to be in distress."

    More training is needed... yes, cops should go to the academy for 25 years. We must train them for every possible inevitability...

    fuckers running around naked... his family, his doctors, his therapist, all failed him... but the cops are at fault.

    The perfect solution for this problem is to not have the police show up at all. Zero force is the amount that is acceptable to the public so why have armed people on scene. Call social workers and the family to deal with the loon. Problem solved. Then when the wackjob hurts or kills somebody call the police for a report. :toptip:

    BTW......I agree that the guy probably shouldn't have been shot but I don't know the whole story.

    Odds are that nobody gave a shit about this fella when he was alive. He was a burden on his family and society but now that he is dead people care and are outraged. :jj:

    I'm on the liberal side of this issue. Unless the crazy person is a very serious threat, non-lethal means should be utilized. And simply being naked is not a serious threat. And no, you cannot tell if they'll suddenly snap which is why you isolate the crazy person.

    These idiots are smoking bath salts these days. That seems to lead to extreme insanity in some.

    They shouldn't be executed because it's a difficult situation.

    Why did they have to kill him?

    Why not just shoot his big toes off so he can't run anymore?

    How do you know that the officer had a taser? Not all cops carry them.
