Parents of man shot to death by police in Newton sue

WBUR reports:

Although an inquest cleared police officers of criminal responsibility, Michael Conlon's family said they hope the suit will lead to improvements in the way police respond to mental health emergencies.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Not only was the guy off his meds, he also had a head full of crystal meth. I'd call that fairly unpredictable. I'm not sure hallway counseling would have ended this situation.

Hate to be politically incorrect.

Where did that "head full of crystal meth" observation come from @scollaysq?

WHDH - "Conlon was taken to Newton-Wellesley Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. An autopsy later revealed that he had a high level of crystal meth in his system at the time of his death, according to what the judge wrote."

Autopsy showed methamphetamine, gabapentin, lorazepam, hydroxyzine, pseudoephedrine, "prescribed amphetamine", alprazolam, buprenorphine etc.

Also reported in the Boston Globe.
