Largo, Florida - Police called out to a domestic disturbance Thursday say they were forced to shoot and kill an 18-year-old man armed with a knife shortly after entering the apartment he shared with his mother.
Nicholas Pesare had Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism, and difficulty with social interaction. His mother, Anne Polce, says she called officers hoping they would take him to a mental evaluation center for medication. Instead, she says two officers walked into her apartment and, within seconds, there were three gunshots and her son was dead.
Largo Police are investigating the incident, but say their officers had no choice but to shoot the teen after they were attacked by Pesare, who they say was under the influence of drugs and was threatening suicide. His mother confirms she found her son snorting Xanax earlier in the day.
“They were confronted with a deadly force situation, one of the officers fired their service weapon and, as a result, we have a deceased adult male,” said Lt. Mike Loux of the Largo Police Department.
But Polce says she can’t understand why the officers found it necessary to kill her son, who she describes as 5’3” tall, 118 pounds and armed with only a folding pocket knife. She says the officers were three times the size of her son. She’s also angry she was not allowed to enter the apartment herself to bring her son out peacefully.
“I could have diffused the whole situation because he would have never come after me,” said Anne Polce shortly after being questioned by investigators.
She says her son had a clean criminal record but was suffering from depression. Their argument involved wanting to return to Rhode Island where the mother and son moved from several years ago.
“He had a lot of problems like all autistic kids do, but he was a good kid.”
Sad story. They say folding knife, but I don’t know how bit it was. regardless if 2 grown men can’t take down a 5’3 skinny kid with a knife. These are the stories that make me sick of police officers, but I know they aren’t all like this so you can’t be too quick to judge someone by their uniform. I really don’t know what to say; this is a truly unfortunate incident that could have been handled much differently.
So according to newsbouncingaround the intertubes, Double Fine will be making a huge announcement today! Six games! Some are easy to guess, like Costume Quest on Steam. But with the company’s recent forays onto Mac and the iOS store, other guesses are quite fuzzy. I would love to see a revamped Brutal Legend, and we all want a Psychonauts 2, but those are longshots.

My favorite song off one of my favorite slowcore/sadcore albums:
Carissa’s Wierd - they’ll only miss you when you leave
not another sunrise another another dry stale taste in your mouth you walked away from waking up inside the house depending on the calm you’ve been waiting for thoughts spark a song you loved so long ago you can hear it now they’ll only miss you when you leave so you try and stay awake you just might be the love in their eyes when they’ve subtracted all the times you sat there trying not to say goodbye, goodbye
telephones and postcards with misshaped hearts beside the names i’ve read this letter for the hundredth time today i’ve rearranged, analyzed the words tried to find something between the lines that wasn’t there at least now i can see through these worn out lines and torn up pages, don’t know how i’ll fall asleep tonight
outside the window, awful weather the storm will slowly close in on me when it’s time to leave when it’s time to leave when it’s time to leave
worn out lines and torn up pages don’t know how i’ll fall asleep tonight
outside the window, awful weather the storm will slowly close in on me when it’s time to leave when it’s time to leave
