It is about time. We need more mental health training in this country. I am a therapist and have had out of control kids I was trying to calm down. When they see the cops they either escalate or freeze, they are afraid of cops. It is better to stand back and let the therapist who knows the patient handle it. The therapist will tell you how to handle the patient. Some times you do have to tase them. The therapist will know if they are armed.
