Missing the Point

The 95 year old man "was being involuntarily committed for medical treatment." His death is attributable to a system that forces an old man to submit to medical treatment he doesn't want. The cops are simply armed enforcers for a system that is seriously dysfunctional. Apparently not a single officer had the intelligence or respect for individual rights to tell the medical staff to respect the man's wishes. Therein lies the tragedy.
