Jeanetta Riley

Jeanetta Riley was a 35-year-old Native American pregnant woman with psychiatric disabilities who lived in Northern Idaho. On July 8, 2014, she told her husband she was suicidal. He drove her to the hospital in Sandpoint, Idaho, and told hospital personnel she needed help. The police were called. Instead of descalating the situation, the police shot her five times and killed her. She elicted little public sympathy and the police department suffered no consequences for her murder. However, when police officers in nearby Coeur d’Alene shot a dog the next day, the dog’s death became a national campaign and the owner was awarded $80,00 for the dog’s death.
