23. With all due respect, you're a law enforcement officer, if I understand correctly,
and not trained to diagnose mental illnesses.

I do appreciate everything you do in your capacity as a law enforcement officer, but if it's all the same to you, I'd prefer to let trained, qualified health care professionals decide who's genuinely mentally ill and who's not. They're also better qualified than jailers and LEO to decide who's genuinely suicidal and who's not. If that were not so, there would not be a single suicide in a jail anywhere on earth. :hi:
