It's Time for Change
Miles Hall was a beloved brother, son, grandson, nephew, cousin, neighbor and member of the community. He struggled with mental illness and was killed by Walnut Creek police on June 2, 2019 near his childhood home.
Law enforcement's use of lethal force on a young man during a mental health crisis for which officers were forewarned was inhumane. Miles needed hospitalization, not criminalization. Accountability, police reform, and policy changes are needed to protect the mentally ill and the families who love them.
The mental health and justice systems are broken.
The family, Friends of Scott, Alexis, and Taun Hall (FOSATH) and supporters are committed to finding a way to bring about necessary change by first working with the Walnut Creek Police Department and the City of Walnut Creek to improve crisis intervention, implicit racial bias training and use of lethal force policies and then by expanding efforts to make changes at the County and the State levels.
