When there's domestic violence, mental illness and similar matters who else is qualified and willing to show up other than a police officer? More often than not there's a gun lying around somewhere close.

Yes, the police need more training on dealing with situations when a noncompliant criminal is overdosing and dying from a lifetime of chronic hard drug use.

RACIST BILL TAMMEUS

Isn't it amusing how Tammeus' own personal racism emerges in his writing? If asked, I'm sure he would deny being a racist, yet there it is on full display in his blog postings.

When describing a person, why would you use the color of their skin, unless you were making a reference to their skin. An example would be "her skin was milky white" or "the cowboy's brown leathered skin resembled the saddle upon his horse."

Here is Bill Tammeus, an unconscious racist, writing in this blog post:

"by a white Minneapolis police officer"
"for individual white Americans to treat individual Americans of color with respect."
"on the necks of black and brown people."
"two black leaders make that point well."
"especially with white evangelical Christians"
"some of my best friends are black."
"within so many white churches and white Christian spaces."
"to treat individual people of color kindly"

As is his modus operandi, Bill Tammeus loves to lecture Christians about their many failings, while name-dropping a long list of people whom he has met or read their book. This is the sign of an insecure person with a need to feel superior to others, thus publicly masking their inner demon.
