    Most Mentally Ill are affected by Screaming, Yelling and Demanding because it increases and escalates their Anxiety Levels.  If someone is Out of Control, assess the danger level and be alert (Police) but use LOW TONES OF VOICE and SIMPLE 3 WORD SENTENCES AND REPEAT TILL PERSON IS DE-ESCALATES HIS VOICE AND THEN LISTEN WITH EYE CONTACT AND DO NOT INTERROGATE.  GOAL IS TO BRING PERSON DOWN FROM EXTREME ANXIETY. SOME PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO HOSPITAL. THEY JUST NEED TO GO TO THEIR DR. AND GET A BLOOD TEST FOR MANY MEDICINES FOR MENTAL HEALTH. A HOSPITAL STAY COSTS INSURANCE COMPANIES AND TAX PAYERS AT LEAST $35,000 WHEN A DR VISIT MIGHT JUST MEAN A BLOOD TEST TO SEE WHERE SOMEONE'S MED LEVEL IS.  IF EXTREME, THEY MAY STILL NEED TO GO TO HOS. TO BE MONITORED.  HOWEVER NOT EVERYONE NEEDS TO GO TO HOS. IF THEY ARE WILLING TO STAY ON MEDS AND DR JUST NEEDS TO TWEET THEIR MEDS IN AN OFFICE.

    The Memphis Model is basically a vote of no confidence regarding the use of the police as first responders..

    its not gone work, these uneducated white boys got the taste of blood now and are bloodthirsty, and their supervisors are more than ready to coverup for them all the way to the top of their ranks.
