You might have heard a 9-year-old was recently pepper-sprayed by a police officer in Rochester, New York. But did you happen to watch the whole 10-minute video of what transpired? There is so much more going on there than just another police brutality story. It’s a window into pain. 

The police were called to a domestic disturbance. According to the mother, mental illness is involved. It’s a sometimes under-the-radar plague in our country — certainly for the individuals and families suffering from it. And the children!
