# Mental health crisis
The police response to the mental health crisis has to change.
Police Shoot Mentally Ill Man Within 28 Seconds of Arrival. Police officers in the Bronx shot Raul de la Cruz within 28 seconds of their arrival after responding to a call from his father. Raul de la Cruz is a 42-year-old man who struggles with his mental health, and his father had called for medical help after an argument between them. Raul was shot six times in his abdomen, right leg, and chest and remained unconscious for several days after the shooting. The police claimed that Raul had brandished a knife and did not comply with orders to drop it, leading to the shooting. However, Raul's family members dispute this claim, saying that Raul didn't have the knife out and that they only wanted medical help for him. The Force Investigation Section of the Police Department is looking into the shooting. Concerns about how the city handles New Yorkers who are experiencing mental distress are once again raised by this episode.

Texas Children's Hospital calls child protective services on another Katy mother after teen attempts suicide
At this point, it's unclear what Texas Children's Hospital's motives are. Are they apathetic, uneducated, or are they possibly being compensated by the state for making unwarranted reports of abuse and neglect to DFPS?

Opinion | Crime in New York City
A tale of stabbings, shootings, robberies, and a mayor too busy playing Mr. Hollywood to realize Gotham is burning. In a shameful attempt to assuage the citizens of New York, the media and Mayor Adams have repeatedly pointed out that crime isn't nearly as bad as it used to be.
