Dashboard and body camera footage obtained by the Guardian show police officers shoot Jeanetta Riley, a 35-year-old pregnant woman with a history of mental health problems who was wielding a knife outside a hospital in Sandpoint, Idaho. Riley died from the gunshot wounds. All officers on the scene have since been cleared of any wrongdoing, and the family has received no apology over the incident.
When Shane Riley brought his wife Jeanetta to the hospital because she was threatening self-harm, he was trying to save her life. But 15 seconds after the mentally ill, pregnant 36-year-old Native woman arrived, she was dead—shot by police while wielding a knife.
