    I have to ask why was no family called in to help in negotiations prior to the exculation of this incident that caused the dealth of a citizen, for what reasons? What was the reason for a Mental Health Warrent and what is a mental health warrent? I am concerned that the situation could have been better handled and that it may reveal a real true need of police and justice system to be inadequent in their training in these cases.
