    Woman Dies After Mass. Cops Restrain Her

    By Associated Press
    Sun Mar 18, 3:31 PM

    BOSTON - State and local officials are investigating the death of a developmentally disabled woman who was restrained by police officers at the group home where she lived, authorities said Sunday.

    Brenda Ellison, 42, appeared to go into cardiac arrest as she was restrained, according to police. She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

    Officers went to the home Friday night after receiving a report of a "woman out of control," police said. Health care providers told police they had unsuccessfully attempted to restrain Ellison after she become violent.

    When Ellison became increasingly hostile, officers restrained her, police said.

    Police spokeswoman Sharon Dottin did not identify the officers involved or the restraint technique used. The medical examiner's office has not released a cause of death, she said Sunday.

    JudyAnn Bigby, secretary of the state Executive Office of Health and Human Services, said Ellison's death was being investigated by her department, Boston police and Vinfen, the nonprofit operator of the group home.

    Bigby said the Disabled Persons Protection Commission _ a three-member panel appointed by the governor _ also would investigate. The death is being probed by the police's homicide unit and by internal affairs.

    The group home in Boston's Brighton neighborhood houses four residents and Vinfen operates it under contract with the state. Two staff members were on duty at the time of the incident, said Bruce Bird, Vinfen's chief operating officer.

    What the frick do they expect out of us???? Violence=cop response. Cop response=cop controlling situation. Cops contolling situation=force continuum. There is no this person gets this kind of treatment, this person gets that kind of treatment. There is no possible way we can train for every type of person we could/might deal with.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
