My heart and my prayers go out to the family of Ejas Choudry.
As someone who’s been in similar situations where I required the assistance of police on a mental health call, I fully support an investigation into what happened, and demand better training so police can de-escalate a mental health call like this using non-lethal force.
I have openly said I support good cops, and think they deserve better funding so they can have better training, and more manpower. That doesn’t mean that I can’t demand change, and demand that they do better, where improvement is needed.
Even though I’ve been in similar situations, I’ve never had it turn out this way so, there are no words.
All I can do is publicly support the family and demand answers on their behalf. Answers for Choudry, will bring to light what needs to be done to ensure this doesn’t happen to another family in the future.
