The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word KILL, as a transitive verb meaning: to deprive of life :  cause the death of. Now that we have that definition out of the way, when we call a person a KILLER, a noun meaning: one that kills. When I call the people that assaulted this taxpayer, KILLERS, I very purposefully use that word. In this instance a taxpayer with a mental illness was killed by a pair of unknown assailants.

This was a brief commentary I made about a VERY PREGNANT WOMAN with a possible mental illness. We never will be quite sure. One major impediment to our discovery, or rather prevented us from ascertaining the degree of her illness was, that she was killed by police while brandishing scissors. She lived in a place that transitioned the homeless into living in a home for themselves. We are told there was a house full of children at the killing. Very sad. Here is a link to the original article: Seattle Police Shoot Black Pregnant Lady with Scissors in Hand.

Mental Illness can Affect Millions. Putting Millions of Lives in Danger.

Mental Health is an issue that affects all of us. Systemic racism without any real solution for racism is a time bomb waiting to explode. Racism can be a cause of mental health issues. We all need a little help. Whatever race you say that you are, a person with a mental illness was killed without hesitation. If 25% of people experience a mental illness every year, in a population of 300 million, at any given time 75 million people could be killed by an unknown person, or in some instances a pair of unknown people or FIVE. Well, we do know for a fact that, based on a 2015 estimate that at least 20% of the time, the identities of the killers will be withheld from the public, to protect the killer(s).
