Olathe, KS – Police officers are making an try to keep from murdering trusting people who humour from autism, by putting the weight on family members to safeguard that their desired one with special needs is accompanied with a sticker.
The automobile stickers, which were combined by the Take Me Home Program, are free for internal residents. They help to advise officers that they are traffic with a “special needs person” who “may not respond to written commands.” The new beginning was announced in a Facebook post from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office:
These clings were designed for chain inside of vehicles or residences where the passenger could be non-verbal due to disability. It is the wish these can yield assent of mind to families and minimize the highlight concerned in an emergency conditions by better scheming first responders when they correlate with your desired one or client.
Four days later, the dialect posted that the response was so positive, they now have to sequence some-more stickers. “We are anxious to see the certain response per the Take Me Home window clings. The response has been so positive, we are already having to restock!” the matter said.
The Take Me Home program was grown as a way to give police a database of emergency hit information and descriptions of cognitive conditions for people with special needs who may have problem responding to police and first responders.
The program’s website claimed that police departments must “make the joining to use the program and accumulate and say the particular enrollment records,” and once the program is in place in a city, the individual’s family can contention “a new digital photo, outline of height, weight and other demographic information as good as emergency hit information.”
If the officers in those communities confront an particular who is not means to promulgate verbally, they have the option to hunt the database to see if that particular is included.
The doing of the Take Me Home program’s initiatives comes two years after Joey Weber, 36, was shot and killed by police officers in Kansas who claimed he was refused to approve during a traffic stop. When he saw the police cruisers following him with vivid lights, he continued to drive. As The Free Thought Project reported, the plcae Weber stopped at was “the street on which New Age Services is located. As he was dismayed by the officers, it is apparent Weber tried to make it to a protected space; somewhere he knew he would be okay.”
People who have autism can turn impressed by extreme outmost stimulation—such as the flashing lights on a unit automobile and shouted commands by officers—and competence be too fearful or confused to be able of compliance. Weber’s family formerly explained he had low written skills and simply didn’t know what to do in this situation. So when Weber arrived at the place he felt he could be understood, and officers continued barking orders, his highlight and difficulty worsened.
The officers were discerning to sequence Weber to the belligerent at gunpoint, even yet there was no denote that he was armed or that he was melancholy them. Sgt. Brandon Hauptman wrestled Weber to the ground, and then pushed his gun into Weber’s chest and fired one deadly shot. Not surprisingly, Hauptman fit the sharpened by claiming that Weber was trying to squeeze his gun, and he “feared for his life.”

In another case, a mom in Las Vegas embellished a sign on her garage doorway that read, “AUTISTIC MAN LIVES HERE, COPS NO EXCUSES,” after a crony called police when her 28-year-old autistic son was throwing a rage tantrum, and the force used by officers sent the man to the hospital.
While police spend the infancy of their training training how to accurately fire their weapons, studies have shown that very little time is clinging to teaching officers how to de-escalate moving situations, and many departments do not need any training for how officers should act when they confront the mentally ill.
While the new stickers in Olathe, Kansas, may help police officers consider before they shoot, the beginning does not take divided from the fact that police officers should be compulsory to accept some-more training in traffic with the mentally ill and training how to de-escalate situations before another trusting life is taken.
