Officer Chris Burley of the Portland Police, who was shot by a person having a mental health crisis.

Officer Burley:"I was frustrated that Mr. Otis had decided he didn't want to cooperate with what we were doing," Burley said. But he added, "It saddens me that Mr. Otis died."
He says he's aware Otis' family had tried to get Otis committed, but couldn't prove he was a danger to himself or others."The community as a whole failed Mr. Otis," Burley said. "He deserved resources." - The Oregonian 06/03/2010
