Patrick Warren Sr.

This piece was created on Procreate and released to Instagram for its initial publication.

“On January 10th, Patrick Warren was killed by a police officer who came unasked when the family requested the mental health professional who previously helped the family. The officer escalated a mental health situation and wasted no time before drawing his gun and murdering Mr. Warren. Say his name. Patrick Warren Sr. mattered. His life mattered. The family begging the officer to put his gun down as they witnessed the murder of their own father/husband matter. His mental health mattered. Police should have never even been involved.”
