Open Letter To our Legislators:
As a police officer, too many times I was legally helpless in dealing with the mentally ill. Cops encounter the mentally disturbed (by drugs, disease or defect) all the time, in general, without effective tools or resources to address the problem. In New Mexico, years ago a “Consent Decree” took the (not necessarily good) tool of using “protective custody” away from officers.
