Approximately two (2) weeks ago, on a CNN segment hosted by Poppy Harlow a panel of so-called experts were discussing the shooting death of Mr. Keith Lamont Scott shot and killed by Charlotte, NC Police. One of the experts was a legal analyst named Paul Callan. The point was brought out by either the Host Poppy Harlow or someone on the Panel, that Mr. Scott's wife could be heard on the video which had just been released by the Police saying to the police "he won't hurt you he has "TBI" and he just took his medicine"! As they went around the panel getting their comments as to how the police handled the situation, Paul Callan said: "Poppy the larger question as far as I'm concerned, is how does a "DERANGED" individual get a gun"? He went directly from TBI to "DERANGED"! Poppy Harlow nor anyone else on the panel corrected him! No one! Now more than any other time with the high rate of suicide, this issue must be understood! Anyone who suffers from PTSD or TBI , Military or not should be respected! They are NOT "D-E-R-A-N-G-E-D"!
CNN HAS TO TAKE DISCIPLINARY ACTION AGAINST PAUL CALLAN AND ANY OTHER PERSON IN THEIR EMPLOY THAT USES SUCH FOUL LANGUAGE TO DESCRIBE TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES !
We the undersigned demand that CNN take Disciplinary action against CNN Legal Analyst Paul Callan for referring to someone suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury as "DERANGED"!
It is irrelevant the particular person he referred to was not Military simply because, obviously both TBI and TPSD disproportionately effect the Military.
If you want to thank us for our service? Then show there is ZERO tolerance for this language at CNN! Otherwise you are NOT serious!
