On March 9, 2015, a police officer responded to reports of a suspicious person knocking on doors and crawling on the ground at an apartment complex just outside Atlanta.
It was Air Force Veteran and 27-year-old Anthony Hill. He was unarmed and naked.
Hill had served more than four years in the U.S. Air Force when he was medically discharged. He was being treated by a VA doctor for bipolar disorder but had stopped taking his medication because he didn't like the side effects.
Hills' family is now suing for wrongful death and excessive force by a police officer trying to subdue Hill.
According to the complaint, Hill slowly approached Police Officer Robert Olsen with his arms wide open to show that he was unarmed. Olsen told him twice to stop, and when Hill kept walking, the officer shot him in the neck and chest, killing him.
Hill's parents claim Olsen had a number of non-lethal options for subduing their son, including using his baton, mace, a stun gun or even his own hands. However, they say, he chose to use the most lethal means at his disposal to deal with the situation.Officer Olsen had received prior reprimands around "unprofessional and aggressive interactions with the public." Olsen is awaiting trial.
