'They shot him because that’s what we do'

Earlier this month, Justin Way of St. Augustine, Florida, threatened to kill himself. He sat down on his bed, drunk, brandishing a knife that he intended to use on himself. His girlfriend, Kaitlyn Christine Lyons, called a non-emergency police number to get him help. She expected the authorities to institutionalize him for self-protection.Instead, two sheriff’s deputies arrived, armed with assault rifles. They made Lyons wait outside while they stormed Way’s room. And then they killed him.
