Florida Cops Kill Mentally Ill Suicidal Veteran To Protect Her From Herself

A SWAT team was sent to the home of Kristen Ambury to help her after she threatened suicide Aug. 25. What actually happened is they made a bad situation far worse when they broke into her apartment and shot her dead.

Ambury was reportedly armed and home alone as she barricaded herself for over 3 hours in her apartment in Sunrise, Florida, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Relatives said she seemed to be under the influence of alcohol and struggled with mental illness.

Ambury was a 28-year-old U.S. Army explosive ordnance specialist and emergency medical technician. She worked for the American Heart Association prior to being killed by police.

Veda Coleman-Wright, a Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, told Local 10 that officers attempted to negotiate with Ambury before they broke into her home. When negotiations failed, a SWAT team was called in.

Neighbors said they heard 5 to 6 shots. Ambury was home alone until the kill squad broke into the apartment.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Keeping pace with the last 2 years, 648 people have been shot and killed by police so far this year according to The Washington Post. 152 of those people were mentally ill.
