In Typical 'Police State' Response, Cops Show Up With Guns Drawn After Friends Worried Chelsea Manning Was Near Suicide

Julia Conley, staff writer

Security footage filmed in U.S. military whistleblower Chelsea Manning's apartment last week shows that police responded to calls about Manning's well-being after she posted two tweets that alluded to a planned suicide attempt, by breaking into her home with their guns drawn.

The video encapsulates the U.S. criminal justice system's inappropriate and often dangerous approach to Americans experiencing mental health crises, mental health experts told the Intercept, which obtained the footage.

Unfortunately this is common. Police have no idea how to conduct wellness checks - there have been numerous instances in the past 10 years where people have called the police because of concern over a loved one only to have the cops come and kill them.

If ever you have a family member in distress - DO NOT call the cops.

My question: Is Chelsea getting treatment for her VERY obvious PTSD?

(It is apparent that the Pigs aren’t getting treatment for their Fascist/Sociopathic behavior!)

“Hello police, I believe Donald Trump is suicidal. He’s been screaming all night, ‘I can’t go on’ after watching TV 24/7 for the last several days.”

“Please hurry.”

Poor Chelsea Manning. What a confused and traumatized person.

Who was stupid enough to call the police? With friends like that…


#6

Stay tuff Chelsea. We need you.

But unfortunately, once you call 911 - even if you insist that you only want an ambulance and paramedics, the armed pig-thugs will still come ahead of the ambulance. Why didn’t the friend of Chelsea attempt to help her him/herself?

And exactly where are the Dems (“progressive” and otherwise) when cops break down the door of one of their colleagues running in a Dem primary? Calling out Bernie…Calling out Liz…Calling out the whole damned gang of fakers, frauds and fools…

First They Came
Pastor Martin Niemoller

First they came for the Communists And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me.

Traumatized yes. Confused? Probably not.

Going threw gender identity issues while locked up in a cage in a military prison with the entire world knowing and half of them hating you for essentially the rest of your life…then a sudden reprieve and transition back into civilian reality in America…then trying to run for office??? No that poor girlguy is one seriously and foundationally confused person. She needs probably twenty years of peace and a good therapist to come to grips with her reality…

Looks like the planned outcome of any “welfare” check is for a death to occur. Surprising the Coroner van isn’t following behind the cop car, would save time.


#12

I’m just wondering where the “Protect and Serve” part of the cops’ behavior was. Maybe it’s to protect themselves, and serve their own interests.

Chelsea is fortunate that she wasn’t killed by police.
The government and many warmongers want her dead.
This article from a cannabis grower magazine well illustrates how dangerous our police forces are:

In America was there EVER an “officer friendly”?

So let me get the scene straight: Chelsea sitting on the floor, a revolver to her head.
Bang bang: Open up this is the police.
No response. Police kick open the door.
Drop your weapon or we’ll shoot!!!
Really???
