Iaroslav Mosiiuk, a 25-year-old man from Kyiv, was shot dead by a police officer in Charlotte, N.C. on March 8.

His relative called the police saying Mosiiuk was being suicidal, a local police chief told the Charlotte Observer. When the police arrived, Mosiiuk was holding a hunting rifle.

One of the officers fired at Mosiiuk after the man made “an imminent threat” to the police. Mosiiuk was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

Yes, in America if your love one is having a mental breakdown it's more advisable to handle it yourself rather than calling the police. The police are not social workers but more representative of a hammer.... sledgehammer to brain someone when you actually need conflict resolution mediation. Although there are weapons that are non-lethal and quite effective.
Each year this happens and yet everyone is surprised.
