So, Sgt. Pentland is a figure of hate for tens of millions because he said Deandre didn’t belong in this neighborhood and now Deandre’s parents say he doesn’t belong in any neighborhood but needs to be locked up for psychiatric care.
Update: From the local CBS news station in Columbia, SC in 2020:

The incidence of schizophrenia in black Caribbeans living in the UK is substantially higher than in the white British population. When first reported, these findings were assumed to be a first-generation migrant effect or merely the result of methodological artefacts associated with inconsistencies in the diagnosis of schizophrenia in black Caribbeans and doubts about population denominators. More recently, it has become clear that the incidence of schizophrenia, based on standardised diagnosis and sophisticated census methods, is higher still in second-generation black Caribbeans. The largest study to date has demonstrated a ninefold higher risk of schizophrenia in UK-resident black Caribbeans: findings that are of concern to black Caribbean communities, to their GPs, and to health service managers responsible for resource allocation. …
A “ninefold” higher rate of schizophrenia is a lot.
