We will no longer accept the lack of patience and police training needed to take the bullseye off of the back of those with disabilities or those having a mental health crisis. Enough, we must take to the streets and lift our voice like a trumpet and declare to Law Enforcement STOP KILLING PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP!
"William “Billy” Langfitt ran down a Spanaway street in his socks, yelling and banging on passing cars while clutching a letter about his recently deceased grandfather.
"His loved ones later said the 28-year-old was unarmed and suffering from an apparent mental breakdown sparked by stress from losing his job and his grandfather's death."
When a Pierce County sheriff’s deputy arrived at 252nd Street East and Mountain Highway East, Deputy Colby Edwards shot Langfitt, killing him. Naomi Powers said her boyfriend "looked like a scared animal."
The Langfitt family welcomes all to come and support this cause!
