Denver police shoot and kill a mentally ill Native American man holding a knife to his own throat

on Wed Jul 22, 2015 6:19 pm
Denver police shot and killed a Native American man earlier this month after his mother called for help during a mental health emergency.

Paul Castaway, a Rosebud Sioux Tribal Citizen, had battled schizophrenia and drug and alcohol addiction for years.

His mother, Lynn Eagle Feather, said she could usually calm her son down when he had a crisis, but she sometimes needed help from police — as she did July 13 when Castaway threatened her with a knife.

Eagle Feather said her son was only trying to scare her, and he repeatedly struck himself in the head with the weapon in frustration.

“I told [police] that my son was mentally ill, I tell them that every time I call,” she said. “I just asked for help. Instead they killed my son.”

Officers said Castaway stabbed his mother in the neck, but she said she suffered a small cut when her son held a knife to her throat.

Police said he got “dangerously close” to them with the weapon, and officers opened fire — killing the 35-year-old Castaway.

But witnesses and surveillance video tell a different story.......................
