Right from the start, cops = bad and racist. This was worthy of CNN, mostly opinion, little facts. Did you even listen to yourself? So the Mom doesn't show but can now sue the PD for negligence. Apparently cops are medical professionals now too. Right. Unsubscribe.

IMO I think the cop that followed her out killed her and it was being covered up.

I definitely understand we could do better but do you realize how many individuals we have contact with on a daily basis that have mental health issues. The vast majority do and generally with substance abuse as well. Given most are adults it is often a fine line. I'm in agreement that a lot of these investigations are botched or not conducted thoroughly. But you guys Monday morning quarterback everything... I love the podcast and will continue to listen tho.

"how could they do this and get away with it?" you're forgetting one important thing: she was a black woman in LA.

Ladies, disappointed in the tone of this one. Latrice should have gone and gotten her. It is comical that ya'll basically blame the cops and imply they were racist. i am in recovery from addiction to drugs and was arrested a few times. 1) They actually treated her like anyone else. They dont know her and she basically stole from the restaurant. 2) They cant take her anywhere once she was released. They offered to let her stay overnight then she said no. She is grown. She broke the law twice and you are blaming the cops. Lolol...her mother is probably going to sue the cops, when in reality, it was really her responsibilitie. I a blond hair , blue eyed white woman from a very respectable family, the cops have never taken me to the impound lot, they were not doing it to be racist. The lot would have been closed by then. They were gonna let her stay in a cell. They usually won't do that because then they are liable if anything happens. This is an unfortunate situation. While her mother said she lived an hour away, she should have gone. Mitrice was given options and left. I thought ya'll were more intelligent than that. All it takes is a little critical thinking to know the cops did nothing wrong. A grown woman chose not to stay. You would probably be criticizing them if she had stayed and you would spin it where they were wrong. If you have decided they were racist, then it's easy for you to spin it into their fault. Ya'll are basically contributing to racism by building a case of it, where there was none. I feel for her mother, her daughter acted poorly that night.

She was in age range for onset of schizophrenia or schozoaffectove disorder. and all of this would have been resolved that they would have just let her grandmother pay the bill over the phone and if he done with it and let her go home. For the stupid cops would have found her check card in the car since it was so easily found my other people with money on her car to pay for her meal

the mom and daughter's names sound so similar and it's kind of hard to keep them apart
