Andre C Gladen Sr, was blind and suffering from mental illness , very confused and without a seeing eye dog or any service animal. He was unable to properly navigate, he ended up on a strangers porch simply asking for help (the home owner also agreed he just wanted help)

The officer got there and shot him , he left behind 5 children three daughters , two sons and two grand children who are all so devastated they do not understand why or how he was not just taken into custody.
Again the home owner also said he was NOT trying to harm anyone or take anything , he just needed help he was new to the area and did not know where he was. One of his eyes are completely gone (could clearly be seen by the officer) and the other eye has 20% vision. He didn’t have a service animal he was lost and looking for help, he should still be here. The actions the officer took were uncalled for I’m sure he has been trained in dealing with a situation such as this one , this is also the officers FOURTH murder of a person suffering from mental illness and in this case Andre C Gladen was mentally AND physically disabled simply looking for help. Any amount will help we are trying to give him a proper burial at home it cost to bring him from Portland to California , we are also in hopes to raise funds for the children to go forward with legal action. Or even a lawyer who would help. Not only funds we can use all the support we can get this is a very hard time for his children and his family. Prayers , words , services to help or ANYTHING helpful his adult children just 21 and 19 both successful and productive members of society and his younger children excellent students and will continue to be great in life. Kind words and encouragement are something so needed for their young ears to hear at this time also.

Thank you in advance any funds will be used for his proper burial , his children’s legal fees to take action against the Portland police department and anything else will go to the futures of all five of his children who again all productive members of society and great students. updates and receipts will be posted publicly.                                                             Please assist my family in providing proper home going service for my brother Andre Gladen. He was aware of the importance of life insurance but was denied due to certain health issues. His death was unexpected currently ruled as a homicide in a shooting involving a police officer with a history of using deadly force and the enibility to safely detain victims suffering from mental illnesses.  My brother was the third victims of the office negligence.
