People Call Cops For Help With Disturbed Friends and Relatives, Cops Arrive And Kill Them

ST AUTUSTINE BEACH — Fifty-three year old Florida man Cary Lloyd Martin was going through a difficult time.

His girlfriend became concerned for his safety and called the police because he was threatening suicide.

The St. Augustine Beach police arrived and shot him dead.

Because the lawn was overgrown, according to spokesman Chuck Mulligan, the cops “staged” themselves around it.

A standoff ensued.

The cops were able to contact the man by phone.

“The officer said the suspect inside said he would come out several times and comply with commands to let us help him,” Mulligan said.

“The negotiations continued and when he did finally walk to the door, deputies saw he had a rifle in his hand.”

“However, when he was exiting the house he was armed with a rifle and they did in fact engage with that individual with gunfire,” he continued.

The victim was taken to a hospital but died later.

The two deputies who killed him are Sgt. Earl Edenfield III, a thirteen year veteran and Joshua Butler, who has been with the department for a year and a half. Both have been given a paid vacation until they can be found to have done nothing wrong.

St. Johns County resident Kaitlyn Christine Lyons also called police on the non-emergency line on behalf of a suicidal boyfriend, Justin Edward Way.

The cops arrived and killed him. Two deputies, Jonas Carballosa and Kyle Braig, arrived armed with assault rifles and told Lyons to wait outside.

According to Lyons they looked as though they were going into war.

The deputies say that Way tried to attack them with a knife. The family is skeptical. “If Justin was coming after them with a knife, at 6-foot-4, wouldn’t there be blood splattered all over the room?” asked a family member.

They contend that all the blood was on Justin’s mattress, and that there was no blood on the walls or floor. They believe that a bullet hit the mattress and was dug out, citing a hole found in the middle of it.

The narrative of police being called to help a mentally ill or suicidal person who then proceed to kill them is becoming all too common.

Often these people are innocent of any wrong doing, and unarmed. In Gretna, Florida Donald Kaldrick‘s mother called the police to help her make him take his meds.

A lone cop arrived and killed him.

In Utah Jose Calzada called a suicide prevention line for help and a SWAT team went to his house and killed him.

In Kansas Joseph Jennings became suicidal and cops killed him too. It is not clear whether he was armed.

In Idaho suicidal man Eric Byron was shot by those who came to “help”.

Listing all of the cases just from 2014 and so far in 2015 would require a lengthy article.

People please take note. Calling a cop to help a suicidal or mentally ill person is like throwing gasoline on a fire.

    fuck me since when is a guy holding a fucking screwdriver reasonable cause to murder him, whats the next lethal threat a nail file, a bobby pin, maybe a fucking doughnut ? Maybe not a doughnut or they’ll all be shooting each other
    What this shows me is that police depts have hired psychopaths who relish the opportunity to find a good reason to commit murder. Listen to how they talk about it afterwards it sounds like a couple of guys chatting after they hit a dog with their car.

      looking at the police will soon be considered a threat too.

      Other actions considered threat are:

      Holding your hands up
      breathing in the presence of police
      1 millimeter move from your pinky finger
      Smiling at cops


      Simply being in the presence of almighty but easily scared cowards called cops will be considered a threat by cops.
      Simply being alive is a threat to them
      Simply being black

    not good news at all for those aspiring to be like Dr. Kevorkian. Why book
    an appointment with suicide assisting professsional for fee, when one
    can call 911 at suicidal convenience, get bravely justified Heckling
    Koch killed for free?

    It will soon affect the contract killing
    free market, bring prices for contract murders tumbling 911 down. Why
    pay thousands, take risk of contracting a murder when, one can just call
    911 and say target is suicidal and needs 1033EZ ammo trigger
    pulling therapy assistance? Or say target has weapons of mass
    erections stashed in cash-crotch area, at a tactical tantrum enticing
    incorrect address. Peace be with us, our disturbed friends and relatives living treasures, and dearly departed suicidal homicides
