More information coming out. There's always more to the story than what we get but here's the latest:

Why did former Saints player Glenn Foster Jr. die in police custody?


Glenn Foster Jr., the ex-NFL player who joined the Saints for two seasons and retired in 2016, was reported dead at a medical facility in Northport, Monday.
The 31-year-old was headed on a business trip to Atlanta when police encountered him speeding at more than 90 miles per hour, setting off a chase that resulted in him crashing and being taken to jail. Police alleged that he got into a fight at the jail involving two other detainees and a jail guard, and he was then facing two second-degree assault charges, on top of one count of robbery.
During the three days that Foster was in jail, his family had been pushing for him to get to a hospital because he had been living with bipolar diagnosis for almost 10 years, while pursuing his playing and business careers.
Foster's mother told The Daily Beast that he ďdied in custody after being denied medical treatmentĒ by local law enforcement. "I told them he has not eaten or [had] water and his organs could shut down, and they didnít seem concerned."

Unfortunately, that is the way the NOPD thinks and does business. They are corrupt, aggressive, rude, and don't really care about protecting the people.

We have to take better care of the people who are mentally challenged with proper training and interaction. Not necessarily always with policemen but by employing a prepared mental response team. Way too many people with mental issues die in jail and todays society is aware enough now to put a stop to it before other bipolar or even suicidal people are treated like criminals. Yes, he did evade police and being bipolar was possibly aggressive.

We might just need counselors more than policemen in todays society. A large percentage of the community suffer from PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression and other mental illnesses that make them volatile. They shouldn't die as a result of their actions unless the officer feels a deadly situation is in play. Take care of the sick. Don't punish/kill them.

Former NFL Player Glenn Fosterís Autopsy Suggests Evidence Of ĎStrangulationí Before Dying In Police Custody

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump and the legal team working on the former NFL starís case dropped some damning information this week. Glenn Foster was declared dead in the back of a police cruiser on the way to an area hospital, according to a statement released by the law firm representing his family.

The 31-year-old former NFL player was charged with three counts of reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and attempt to elude.

An independent autopsy was returned Friday by the family of the former Saints player who died in police custody last week in Alabama.

That independent autopsy showed that his cause of death was strangulation.
