#WalterWallace was shot by police in front of his mother. Cathy Wallace told them about her son’s existing mental illness and begged them not to kill him. This has to stop. We need a health response to a mental health emergency, not law enforcement.
People living with mental illness, especially people of color, are overrepresented in deadly encounters with law enforcement. When are we going to change this? #WalterWallace
Research shows that almost
one in four police shootings involve someone with mental illness.

I’m disgusted by these fake narratives. A BLACK MAN WAS SHOT TODAY BY POLICE IN WEST PHILADELPHIA. We are TIRED of the mistreatment and the unnecessary DEADLY FORCE.
His name is #walterwallace !! He was a father, A son and a brother!!!
#WalterWallaceJr was mentally ill! The issue is the way police handled that call. There was no reason for them to shoot him right then and there. They did not properly deescalate the situation. That’s our issue.
