So a guy in Colorado gets his car stuck and apparently has a mental breakdown, calls 9-11, who sends the cops. The cops hang around to try to get the guy to leave the car before evidently getting bored and deciding to just kill him instead.

After getting stuck on a dirt road in Clear Creek County in June, Christian Glass called 911 for help.

Instead, the 22-year-old was killed while locked inside his own car after a long, tense, confusing and chaotic confrontation played out between him and Clear Creek deputies and a handful of other agencies. Video footage was released by his family’s lawyers.

Glass’s parents, Sally and Simon Glass, spoke to reporters Tuesday to try and clear their son’s name and announce their intention to eventually sue the responding agencies responsible for their son’s death.

“From beginning to end, the officers escalated and proactively initiated force,” Glass’ family lawyers, Siddhartha Rathod and Qusair Mohamedbhai, said, in a release. “And yet, these officers, including the one who killed Christian, are still in uniform and have paid no price for their conduct. Our country cannot continue to tolerate this level of extreme violence by law enforcement. The act of simply calling 911 for help cannot be a death sentence.”
The whole thing is insane.
