Imagine calling the police to help a family member who's having a mental health crisis, and then the police show up and kill him. That’s what happened to California resident David Phillips, whose son was fatally shot by police. How on earth could this call have gone so wrong? Tonight, Mic correspondent Aaron Morrison talks to the family, and we look into how law enforcement often mishandles people with mental illnesses. Then, Mic correspondent Chantel Simpson stops by a fashion show by Rebirth Garments, a clothing line that caters to all genders, all sizes and all abilities. Chantel chats with Sky Cubacub, the head designer of Rebirth Garments, at Hollywood Beach in Chicago to learn more about pushing the boundaries of inclusive fashion even further.
