Seattle police officers team with mental health professionals to help those in crisis
SEATTLE -- “I tried to buy some crack and he gave me ‘bunk,’” a woman told Seattle police Sgt. Dan Nelson. She was hysterical. “Oh, that’s terrible,” Sgt. Nelson said, trying to calm her down. “And he won’t give me back my money,” said the woman, referring to the dealer who sold her bad drugs. “(Inaudible) I tried to kill myself last night and I want to kill myself again.”
