Several police related stories in the news today.
Lets begin with the woman who used a shot gun on police. This is an update. Not only did the woman have a very violent past history, it also has come to light she had serious mental health issues. Prior to the police being shot the woman was attempting to use the shot gun on the landloards relative who was attempting to collect rent. take a look at her past history.
Between 1991 and 2003, Williams-Johnson was arrested 13 times on charges including aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated battery, criminal trespass, theft and disorderly conduct. She was not convicted, Bond said.
From 2004 to 2006, Williams-Johnson was confined in an undisclosed state mental institution after she was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the March 2003 assault of a West Side woman, Cook County court records show.
An indictment alleged that Williams-Johnson stabbed the woman with a broken bottle of hot sauce, then poured the hot sauce into her wounds and eyes.
Here comes the kicker, when patients with a violent past are released from a mental-health facility, they almost always are assigned special conditions requiring regular supervision by residential medical personnel. O.K. where, when and how did she slip through, at some point she must have gone off her med's. UM, ALMOST ALWAYS?
