Folks challenge use of force against mentally ill woman

At a candlelight vigil held Tuesday evening, people remembered Linda Hicks, who died Monday after being shot by Toledo police. Now, people are questioning whether the use of such force against the mentally ill woman was really necessary.

It’s easy for those who were not in danger’s way, who were not on the scene, to preach about what should have been done with the crazy woman threatening lives, brandishing a weapon that could have easily slit a jugular or gouged out an eye. If an officer had been killed or injured, would those same folks have held a vigil? Of course not.

If the cops or the caregiver simply shut the door on the deranged woman with scissors in her hands and she hurt or killed herself, then what?
