Vancouver Police go “Beyond the Call”, Gang arrest a 100 pound woman…….

1238992_649837271696051_1460301578_nI took this photograph of a woman being arrested and taken away yesterday in front of the Sunrise Hotel on Hastings Street. She weighed probably well under 100 lbs and presumably was behaving erratically on the street. There are in fact two more officers in behind the scene who are not visible. She was terrified. At one point the officer in front pushed her head down and she screamed while the other officer in the back put cuffs on her. Is there any other way to help people with mental illnesses?
