It appears that in addition to the death penalty race, America has added a new contest: Who can kill the oldest Americans? So far, Arkansas leads in that sport, with SWAT having killed 107-year-old Monroe Isadore in summer 2013. Atlanta police killed 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston in 2006. Numerous police departments have killed senior citizens who were over 80 years old, Caucasians and blacks alike. New York police might have killed an elderly Asian man for jaywalking last year, but his blow to the head was not fatal. New York police had better luck with Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr. Police invaded Chamberlain's home and murdered him (beating, Tasering, and shooting) when his life alert called emergency by accident.
The latest geriatric victim was a 93-year-old woman who was shot and killed by a police officer at her Hearne, Texas home near Dallas. Pearlie Golden, known in the neighborhood as Ms. Sully, was pronounced dead at St. Joseph Hospital after having been shot at least five times, according to witnesses. Officer Stephen Stem is on administrative leave. Ms. Sully was reportedly walking around outside with a gun, probably suffering from old age #dementia . Police officers have Tasers but prefer bullets for our elderly citizens. Happy Mother's Day, Ms. Sully.

Dog Justice for Mentally Ill
It would be illegal to keep a dog in a tight space 23 hours a day and gas or Taser him for barking. It would be illegal to put a dog in deadly restraint for control. But this happens to mentally ill Americans routinely in the nation's jails and prisons. What happened to Larry Neal?
