James Harrison was a 38 year old man who suffered from being bipolar and dealing with schizophrenia. He was not the first person in this world who had such problems, and he lived with his mother. She called the police when he suddenly had an outburst of anger, this was not the first time he behaved in this manner, and had he lived it would not have been the last time. The police arrived, and mom told them,”bipolar and schizo.” Some words of warning in order to prepare the police for a man who was not behaving in a normal manner. The police entered the house, they confronted Mr. Harrison. He had a screw driver in his hand and then lunged toward the three policemen. What else could these endangered men do but to blast away. Three shots were fired, Mr. Harrison collapsed and fell to the floor. When mom entered the apartment her bipolar and schizo son was dead.
Story after story, event after event, incident after incident, meeting after meeting, always concludes in the same ending. A mentally ill person dies. I frequently wonder why three shots must be fired. Are police ever trained to fire at feet? There are no reports whether the police attempted to talk this man down. I forget, their lives were in danger. They have weapons and he had a screw driver.
Oh, the police had God on their side!

I have been in love with football since my early years and this interest translated into devoting countless hours of my life watching and thinking about the National Football League. In my youth, professional football players did not wear extensive equipment, they simply ran out on the field and played football. There is no question these football players were not men who weighed over 300 pounds, simply a group of men who enjoyed being on the field. Many simply did not have any protective gear, why worry when your main goal was to catch the ball or tackle another player. Since that era we have evolved into football teams whose players seek to hurt those on the other team. Player after player winds up with traumatic damage to their brains or body.
Chris Borland is a player for the San Francisco Forty-Niners and is in his second year in the NFL. Mr. Borland informed his coach that enough was enough. He decided to end his career because the danger to his body and brain was too great. So, he gave up wealth for health. l have a hunch this young man will grow into a healthy old man while his teammates will become wealthy and ill. So, which is the wise choice, healthy or wealthy?
