Called local crisis center, and cops and screener came, and belligerently treated me; at last chance 2 go 2 crisis unit, I said OK, but I'm diabetic, I need to pee. Cop did running tackled and cuffed me; I've severe hip/spine disease w/hip implant. Any other med prob. I cant be forced 2 go for care. Why is a "mental malady treated differently than cardiac cases, where I can refuse help. 2add insult, I'm charged w/obstruction. Cop said "this is my insurance policy" I've not seen report, I'm sure is creatively written. I hear US Supreme Ct said it's OK 4 cops 2 lie 2 you, not vice-a-versa. Do I have a case 4 civil rights, ADA and/or PI case(s)? NB: I use a wheelchair/cane, both in view in a 450 sq' apt. Thanks 4 your advices. PS I've fractured breastbone & ribs; Increased prosthetic hip pain
