66 Year-Old Schizophrenic Black Woman Shot Dead by Police

66 Year-Old Schizophrenic Black Woman Shot Dead by Police
October 19 10:08 2016 Print This Article

The last time police were called to the home of 66-year-old Deborah Danner, she left in a straight jacket, recalled a neighbor who witnessed the incident. Danner was schizophrenic and police, who had been called to her apartment several times, knew it. That knowledge did not, however, stop an NYPD police sergeant from fatally shooting Danner on Tuesday.

After a neighbor called 911 to report a disturbance, a police sergeant arrived to find Danner naked and armed with scissors.  Danner put the scissors down when asked, but then allegedly picked up a bat and charged the officer. The unnamed officer, who was also armed with a Taser, fatally shot Danner.

Danner was struck twice in the torso and died at the hospital.

 

According to The Wall Street Journal, Raphelle Gundy, a resident of the building where the deceased woman lives, “said she thought the woman had mental issues and neighbors often heard violent noises coming from her home.”

ABC 7 reports that police visited Danner’s home at least once a week when she was “off her meds”.

In her social media postings, Danner discussed racism and Black Lives Matter.

“Point of the Conversation: How’d U like to move about w/a TARGET on you because of the color of your skin? BLACK LIVES MATTER!” she wrote.

The elderly woman was also looking forward to the years she had left:

The NYPD is conducting an investigation of the officer who fatally shot the elderly, mentally disturbed woman.

@queenofmeanest  If you make a post about dead Cops, they will investigate you.  They read the Black sites to see what's being said.  And, they have the technology to track you down.   Did you read the story on this site where the Black man was arrested for his statement on killing White cops?

Be careful and wise sister. especially with our new President Elect and his Gang in power..

@TinaSue @queenofmeanest I know.  Given my bad experience with cops.  They should not say anything. I know they do not want me to post anything about my relationship with them.  Their philosophy is anything criminal is considered as civil.  That is their way of not doing any paperwork.


Thank you for looking out for my back.

May she rest in peace. Let the monster that murdered her never have any. Killing black people isn't going to solve their problems right now. There are two unqualified people running for president. Niether of them is fit to do the job. They were all laughing and smiles on the news/talk shows because the joke is on the American people.

Where does it all end? Is it a Police Force or a Killer Force to target black people? Why wasn't the woman 'Tased' then taken to a mental institution? Why wasn't she even taken there before? The woman actually predicted her demise on social media. Who said or says the USA is a developed or First World country (whichever is politically correct)??? LIARS, LIARS, LIARS!!!

The NYPD is full of killers who see the elderly or mentally ill as a threat to be naturalized. The cops admit they were wrong, but they cant prosecute because she supposedly had a bat in her own apartment.

@Rick Manigault That is some stupid piece of B.S.  I have bats in my house.  Oops, I guess the pigs will consider that a weapon, especially when the children play baseball.

Stop calling the police on the mentally ill. There are crisis teams out there!

This woman had a B.S. in IT. It's also not illegal to be naked in your home. The police broke into her home and frightened her. I believe she was defending herself. A neighbor complains she is being loud in her house. She wasn't hurting anyone. The police don't have the right to force open a door. At least ten percent of the county is diagnosed mentally ill. This woman wrote she was targeted. Now she is dead. All it takes is a complaint from neighbor; medical profession, etc to have police use lethal force. This is mandated by the city council. They are authorizing these hits. It's very easy to have this happen to anyone.

So let me get this right, the police are supposed to know who are mentally ill and they are supposed to know who are under the influence of drugs since being high on PCP in public is a thing now. Who called the cops and why? The cops are not the therapist, now this women family I bet was nowhere to be found to take care of her but you better believe they will be lined up for the ghetto lottery. I am not reaching for my taser is someone is coming at me with a knife that’s for damn sure, it doesn’t take much to kill with a knife.

Really they knew it was a call for an emotionally disturbed person, that's where the so- called training comes in at .

Did you read the full story? She put down the knife and grabbed a bat. Now, if you're so afraid of being hit with a bad or even stabbed then you don't need to be a police officer. Go work for Sanitation or Baskin Robbins.

If you're TRULY into "community" policing, then you should know who's mentally ill so you won't make the mistake of taking their life unnecessarily. But when you're an "occupying" police force, and you don't really KNOW the community, then things like this happen. I believe if she were white, she wouldn't be dead. She would be in a mental health facility receiving treatment...

^^^They knew her... Everything you said was a reality according to her neighbors. They looked out for her and they usually got an ambulance and took her to the ER. This dude could have repositioned himself outside the door until they had sufficient staff to restrain her.

She was a her apartment. This was not a matter for the police. As far as ghetto lottery, this is unjust killing.Poor black peoppro and the mentally ill are still human beings.
