    ER Actress who spoke out about Sexual Harassment on Set, and accused Clooney, and Eriq La Salle of having her blacklisted

    https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/er-actress-vanessa-marquez-shot-170045762.html

    She was apparently suffering from mental illness, and pulled out a replica gun and pointed at Police, who fired back. She says Clooney had her blacklisted. That probably drove her crazy.

    Man Hollyweird is weird. So much scandals. The cops were there to do a welfare check. I wonder what that means. It sounds like she has had many run ins with law. Why are cops checking on her welfare? She has not really had steady work since ER. How she support herself let alone afford South Pasadena. South Pasadena is nice. Nice houses with green lawns.

    More like Clooney didn't call her back.

    Who could blame her? He's Bonafide.

    a welfare check can be done on anybody, usually cops do it on old people there doesn't need to be precedent.

    A well being check is literally just a call from any concerned citizen to any 911 dispatcher. I get at least 3 a day. As for the rest of the situation, she likely suffered from mental illness and was having an episode. This type of thing goes largely unreported and shows what a huge fuck up many states have on their hands by not funding state institutions or looking into improving health care.

    i had a coworker a long, long time ago. Anyway, i had said that my girlfriend at the time had called the cops to do a welfare check on her mom (she lived in a far city and she hadn't talked to her in a few days). My coworker says, "damn, i had no idea cops delivered welfare checks, that's cool"...

    She's not his type. She claims Eric La Salle and some crew guy harassed her and that Clooney blacklisted her after she complained about it to the producers. Personally, I think she was crazy and just dragged Clooney's name into it because she was nuts or because he was the biggest name, or probably a combination of both.

    This is just a terrible situation for both parties. As a person suffering from a mental illness, you have no complete control over your actions, and as a cop, you never know who can really pose as a fatal threat to your life.

    I used to think most cops were assholes and were unjustified in using "excess force" to subdue gun-wielding suspects. That is until I watched bodycam videos of them in action:






    To call them trigger-happy for reacting in such manner would be foolish. These guys deserve more respect for risking their lives like that.
