Guns, mental illness, drugs, and laws.
Makell L. Meyerin of Spring Grove, Illinois.
Heroin addict from the age of 14. She had a long arrest record, included felony burglary, for which she was sentenced 5 years.
Makell's mother said the only time she heard of her daughter was when she was on the news for committing another crime.
On May 23, 2018, in Antioch, Lake County, Illinois, Makell and her boyfriend were going door to door, asking for money.
When the cops were called, they sped away, and Makell fired at the cops with a Beretta Cx4 Storm Tactical Carbine.
Was it legal for her to have it?
Why no! It wasn't!
Makell and her boyfriend got away and then stole a Prius and overdosed in it.
The cops were called AGAIN, and Makell led them on a chase.
This is the video. She didn't survive, but the video isn't gruesome.
Makell's mother said the only time her violent career-criminal daughter was sober was when she was...incarcerated.
Her autopsy showed that she was full of opiates, cocaine, benzodiazepines, fentanyl, heroin, and buprenorphine.
So: Drug laws failed and gun laws failed.
In fact the entire criminal justice system failed.
What's the only thing that would've worked?
A long sentence in a state psychiatric hospital.
Makell L. Meyerin --all by herself--create two enormous crime scenes.
The cops said they'd never had a situation in which someone had fired a long gun at officers in two entirely separate places.
And THIS thing is a pistol converted to a tactical carbine.
For mass shootings, it's BETTER than an AR-15.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
