Anthony Hill was a 27-year-old Air Force veteran who embraced the fact that he was bipolar.  In his twitter account, he stated “I am thankful to be something other than normal,” it says. “I don’t fight my circumstance, I embrace it. I love myself. Always #IamBipolar.  In March 2015, Hill was having troubles with his medication.  He was jumping off his balcony in Chamblee, Georgia repeatedly while naked.  Neighbors called 911 to get medical attention.  However, the police were dispatched to the scene instead. Although Hill was unarmed, the police officer Robert Olsen shot and killed him.
