Thank You For your Concern and Support. On Sunday January 5th 2014, My 18 yr Friend Was Gunned down by police in a hallway in his Home in boiling Springs Lakes NC. I have started this page with the blessings and support of the Vidal/Wilsey Family. Any and all donations will be used to bury my friend and help cover costs associated with his untimely and tragic death. His sister died in a car crash a few years ago, and now his mother must bury another child.These things can cost innocent families Thousands of dollars. Please read the following articles, and even google Keith Vidal. He was a bright and talented young man , who was murdered in cold blood by an officer sworn to protect him...

The youtube address I had tried to add below might not have come through. In Honor of Keith and the tragic crime that happened will have me forever in the fight against such injustices. Yours, Mary, has hit so close to home with me. I want you to know my family and I keep you in our prayers and you can count on me to never forget and continue to fight. The Youtube I tried to post was to try to educate people on the "stigma of mental illness". It has been ignored for too long and My hopes are that your son's tragedy will call attention to those who don't understand to get educated..

My heart goes to the family. It's so unfortunate that Law Enforcement is so behind in 'training' to not know how to deal with those with mental issues outside of brute force. My prayers for your family and all his loved ones...it's a terrible action that didn't need to happen.

Very sorry about your loss! I am glad to assist you, myself being a disabled U.S. Navy Gulf War veteran and college graduate but currently disabled with schizophrenia and substance abuse.
