Cleveland police officers responded to 37 year old Tanesha Anderson’s house because she was bi-polar and her family hoped they could calm her down. They responded to the situation as a “disturbing the peace” call. Everyone agreed that Tanesha should undergo an evaluation at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. But things went horribly wrong when the cops threw her to the ground where her head was bashed against the curb, killing her. She died in front of her family right outside her house.
What is going on with the police in Ohio? From the looks of things with the shooting deaths of John Crawford and 12-year-old Tamir Rice, you would think that the state recently lost its mind. But if the FBI’s recently-released report on the rampant corruption of the Cleveland Police Department is any indication, dirty cops shooting innocent, unarmed people in Ohio is far from new.
