Chanhassen, MN – A family is devastated after they called the police to help their 16-year-old son and the officers who responded shot and killed him instead, highlighting an ongoing trend in which the officers who promise to “serve and protect” their community are taking the lives of its most vulnerable members.

Archer Amorosi was killed on Friday morning after his parents reached out to the same police officers who said they would help with no questions asked, as the teenager was battling mental health issues, and appeared to be suicidal. His father told KARE 11 News that the family called a crisis hotline and the police on Thursday, and then called the police again on Friday, which resulted in the fatal encounter.

My ex-wife called them because they said if they came back they would take him in for an evaluation. They said wouldn’t ask questions. Instead, they killed him,” His father said.

It is unclear whether there is video footage of the shooting, as reports claim that the Carver County Sheriff’s Office does not use body cameras—however, the scene may have been recorded by the dash camera on one of the squad cars.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) agency is already attempting to defend the unnamed officers responsible for Amorosi’s death, by claiming that the deputies used a Taser on the teenager before two of them opened fire with their guns.

Amorosi was pronounced dead at the scene, and while reports claim that police were called after he threatened his mother with knives and a baseball bat, a family friend told The Free Thought Project that Amorosi was unarmed, and was killed because he tried to get up off of the ground.

My daughter spoke directly with a close friend of the mother of Archer, the mom specifically told her that he was unarmed, that they shot him for trying to get back up,” the friend said.

While the public waits for more details to be released, the community is heartbroken and the Associated Press reported that “distraught relatives were openly crying in the driveway of the home” and that “people coming and going from the home said they were friends and classmates of the teen but declined to comment until the family had decided to do so.”

Amorosi was preparing to start his junior year at Minnetonka High School, where he was an active member of the student body and he played football and lacrosse. The school’s principal, Jeff Erickson, released a statement via email sharing his condolences regarding the devastating loss of the young student.

It has been widely reported in the local media that MHS incoming junior, Archer Amorosi, passed away Friday,” Erickson wrote. “This situation is heartbreaking and I want to extend my thoughts and prayers to Archer’s parents and family, his friends, and the entire Minnetonka High School community. I know this situation is particularly devastating to those of you who knew Archer well.

As shocking and heartbreaking as this loss is, it is, unfortunately, not uncommon in the United States. Even if the boy had threatened to take his own life at one point, his life was ultimately taken by the officers who were supposed to help him and to talk him down off of the ledge.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, while police officers receive extensive training on how to accurately fire their weapons, they often receive very little training on how to handle mentally ill individuals, or how to de-escalate situations where a person claims to be suicidal.

In the case of Archer Amorosi, many of the details are still unclear, and it remains to be seen whether the public will be able to see the video footage of the shooting, or whether the officers responsible will be held accountable for their actions.

as the teenager was battling mental health issues,

Battling ... how?

Was he seeing a psychiatrist? Was he regularly taking his medications? Was he seeing a therapist? Was he in group therapy?

I'm guessing "no" to all these questions. So what are the rest of us supposed to do?

The father took the innocent child's car away. The innocent child went off his meds and threw an innocent tantrum. One evil deputy was transported for non-life-threatening injuries. The innocent child was threatening the mother with knives and a baseball bat. The innocent child innocently pointed a gun at a cop. The evil cops shot him for no reason at all but that he tried to get up.

911 call: Chanhassen teen killed by deputies was in rage day earlier after car taken away

The Minnetonka High School junior was "off his anti-depression meds" on the day before he was fatally shot, the 911 call revealed.

By Paul Walsh Star Tribune
July 15, 2018 — 12:43pm

[Star Tribune] The teenager fatally shot outside his family's Chanhassen home last week by sheriff's deputies went into a rage a day earlier after his parents took away his car, prompting a call to 911.

[Star Tribune] The woman called 911 to report that her son was suicidal and threatening her with knives and a baseball bat, according to the BCA.

[Star Tribune] Emergency dispatch audio spelled out in dispassionate detail the events in and around the home as Friday's drama unfolded, including from one deputy who said he answered a call at the same home the previous day.

[Star Tribune] A dispatcher on the earlier call said a man reported that his son "started kicking and throwing things around the house and the yard after the father took away [the teen's] vehicle."

[Star Tribune] The man also divulged that his son was "off his anti-depression meds," the dispatcher was heard saying.

[Star Tribune] The dispatch audio obtained by the Star Tribune sheds additional light on what unfolded and describes a tense scene with the mother in the garage and Amorosi pacing around. It says the teen was described as holding a knife in one hand and “some kind of handgun” in the other, with an officer saying “he does continually point a handgun in my direction.” At another point, Amorosi was described as having “a hatchet and something in his hands.” Mental health services were called.
