12/30/2011 – Police kill man in Nassau today (And, update on police killing in Suffolk)

Kimberly Wilder writes:

I hope that the public stays watchful of incidents where police kill citizens. It is so important to all of our rights and safety, that our government strives to exact justice through the courts, not on the streets. Of course, we should not immediately blame police, as they have difficult jobs. And, it is noted that one or two officers were wounded in the Nassau incident this morning.

Still, since the government and police “hold all the cards” as far as after-the-fact information goes,  it is important to watch them very closely, and to demand answers.

In Suffolk County this year, a family called police to check up on a family member with a history of psychiatric problems. The police subsequently killed the man, Kevin Callahan of Selden, NY, in his home. This incident happened in September of 2011, and neither the Suffolk County Police, nor Suffolk County government, have released enough information to explain themselves to the public, and provide comfort and justice to the family. There is an old update here. And, I will be writing more about the case this week, since the family is still waiting on the simple information of the results of the autopsy.

The story from the police killing incident today in Nassau County is below, and at The NY Daily News: here.

  1. We need to get the FEDs in here to do an investigation. I am pretty sure what they will find: Below intelligence, psychotic personalities, no experience, etc, of these police – this shouldn’t happen once, twice or the dozen times it has happened in the recent past.
