Walter Wallace has a long history of mental instability. He was diagnosed with a bipolar disorder and often experiences mental health crises. On October 26th, police were called into the Wallace home three times. The first two times, tensions were de-escalated without a problem. However, the third encounter lead to 14 bullet rounds being shot into Walter Wallace. On the third encounter, two officers arrived on-scene. When they confronted Wallace, one officer told the other to “shoot him” which was documented by bodycam footage. No attempts of de-escalation were made. More of this story here.
