Sahlah Ridgeway

A troubled Syracuse woman committed suicide by cop after breaking up with her girlfriend.

Salah Ridgeway, 32, was shot by police Friday night after she refused repeated orders to drop a sawed off shotgun.

The NY Daily News reports police responded to complaints from Ridgeway's neighbors about drug dealing activity.

When police arrived on the scene they spotted Ridgeway running away from them, carrying a sawed off shotgun.

Officers ordered her several times to drop the weapon, but she refused, according to the Daily News.

An officer shot her shortly after 8:30 p.m. She was rushed to a hospital, where she later died.

Before her death, Ridgeway posted a series of angry text messages exchanged between herself and a girlfriend.

Ridgeway's suicide was the 2nd involving a troubled lesbian that day.

Dorothy Dutiel and May Kieu

On Friday morning, 15-year-old Dorothy Dutiel, left, shot her lesbian lover May Kieu, also 15, before turning the gun on herself in a murder-suicide that shocked her classmates at Independence High School in Arizona.

Like Ridgeway, Dutiel also expressed her grief over a breakup on social media.

On Thursday, she tweeted "goodbye" and she asked her Twitter friends if anyone else was "ready to shoot themselves."

Research shows homosexuals and transgenders suffer higher rates of depression and mental illness than heterosexuals.

    Sandra, stop it. I had to read that three times. Committed suicide by cop. I get it; she wanted to die and let the cop kill her (by refusing to drop her weapon). Crazy though. My gut says just move on, but I'm not in her shoes.

  • whitty hutton

    I think it's most likely related to not seeking professional help to deal with their childhood issues/traumas, societal and religious pressures. Jesus n therapy...Jesus n therapy.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    About sums it up. Most importantly, maybe not fully accepting her lifestyle imo. Why so attached to this person? All the women out here, you thought life couldn't go on without that one person? That one person? Condolences.

    I knew it! I knew that situation in Arizona was the result of a lesbian relationship gone bad. Sad. I have two lesbian nieces and I'm not happy about it, at all. ? One of them is dating a stud that looks like Kevin Hart and I don't trust her/his @$$! ?

    When I used to frequent gay bars, the lesbians were notorious for starting fights. The gay men, however, were too busy spreading STDs to engage in actual physical violence.

    Speaking of lesbians, I just watched an interesting documentary on PBS called Out in the Night. It's about a group of so-called "killer lesbians" who were charged with attacking a man on the street.

    "Jesus" isn't the answer, it's part of the problem.

    It's difficult to love yourself when you've been brainwashed to believe a puppeteer in the sky is going to boil your soul, just because you're gay.

    That's why I stopped going to lesbian bars. The fighting and face slashing was unreal.

    Exactly Jesus is one of the tools in the box of our enslavement by the system of racism white supremacy which in my view is the cause of the epidemic levels of homosexuality/bisexuality in the black community.We have to come into understanding of this system and how it operates in order to avoid situations like this and help heal the victims of the system of racism white supremacy.

  • 88

    Would you agree that the system of racism white supremacy can cause extreme mental anguish, depression, stress and serious self-hate issues?

    Police are trained to aim for the center mass. In addition to aiming for the largest target, the torso contains the lungs, heart, and spine... if any of those are struck by a bullet, the offender, if armed with a gun, is less likely to be in a position to return fire.

  • Alisa

    The first thing the black community will say is "Take it to Jesus" or "Just pray on it". If you hv never stood at the edge of the ledge (commit suicide) you cant relate. It takes a second to just end it. The mental health services suck. If you tell your doctor your depressed you get the script for some meds. They don't try to get your thinking back right they just provide medication management. Things were great for me until I was kidnapped and raped by a police officer. I removed myself and was a shell because I did not want to work on my emotions. I needed that raw pain to do what I had to do. He admitted to everything and I went right back to work and thats when the "me" that I put aside returned and that depression was real Everything in my life was a result of that crime and I was close to ending my life. Sorry to be so long winded but the help many need just does not exist anymore I don't think it ever did.My conflict was here I am wanting to take my life and there are people that would give anything to have life (terminal illness) How dare I take what someone is praying for. Again forgive my long post.

  • Alisa

    Because moving on and people saying snap out of it is easy to say. It is you and mental illness at war. Just glad you said it.

    I'm an atheist, but I understand the purpose of religion. For some, it's a weapon of manipulation and oppression. For others, it's a source of comfort and inspiration.

    I am of the opinion that homosexuality is just as natural as heterosexuality. Nature encompasses many things, including things some of us may find unpleasant.

    When I criticize gays, particularly gay men, I'm not bashing them for being homosexual. I am mocking them for engaging in an empty, dangerous, promiscuous lifestyle despite all the known risks.

    When I was young, everyone wanted to be in a committed relationship, that was the goal. Nowadays, gay men open themselves up like a public restroom at a truck stop... come one, come all!

    Homosexuality is not as natural as heterosexuality. If so same sex couples would be able to reproduce, at lease half of the population would be gay, and your rectum would not look a gaping piece of tenderized meat. The loss of bowel control is not natural my friend.

    The system of hateful, ignorant Black people expressing their constant hatred towards other Black people who are just trying to live and be happy is far more oppressive, IMO, than anything a white person has ever done to me or will do to me.

    A system is as effective as you allow it to be. There are white people who don't subscribe to racist ideals and who would never support systematic racism.

    On the flipside, you have Black people who hate everyone and everything, and wouldn't support another Black person if their life depended on it.

    I doubt this post had anything to do with race or racism, but rather people's interpersonal issues.

    If the ability to reproduce is the litmus test for natural sexual activity, where does that leave the infertile heterosexuals?

    Like it or not, homosexuality is a part of nature and it occurs in many species; not just among mankind.

    Furthermore, it's ridiculously naive to believe all gay men participate in @nal s3x, and it's equally hypocritical to ignore the heterosexuals that engage in similar practices.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I believe he has $53 million in personal debt. I had heard that before. A great deal of it because he financed that garbage clothing line out of his own money. If I remember correctly, that was precisely the topic of conversation when he was yelling at Sway. I've read that Jay loaned Kanye some money and the payback was bartered with Kanye taking his DONDA brand to RocNation. It all seems plausible to me. But who knows...

  • Fendi

    I'm not talking. I'm typing. Whatever is in me is none of your concern. You may want to start believing in GOD. Perhaps, He will be gracious enough to heal your misery and fix your brokenness.

    I would say I'd pray for you, but I don't mess with demons. I pray for the protection of everyone on this and every other blog you visit, that they not be subject to your constant harassment. It is evident to everyone who comes in contact with you that you are unfulfilled with your life. You are so insecure, that when I respond to someone re: matters of faith, here you come questioning me. You aren't authorized to question me.

    Ask yourself why you're old, gay, confused and miserable. That can't be fun. There are other gays on this site, and they don't even associate with you, but apparently, that has something to do with my beliefs, which you know nothing about, and the GOD in me, right?!. Lol

    You wasted an entire day posting comments to on a blog to people who rarely, if ever, respond to you. You want so desperately to be included in discussions. You're out. You've always been out. You'll always be out. And I'm not referring to the closet.

  • Tea???

    This just proves ole girl was better off leaving eventually she probably would've taken her out too probably. At least she didn't do anything stupid like take a bunch of other innocent lives with her

  • JJ

    This is so heartbreaking and I pray for these families and friends. Unfortunately some of these young people don't have a open line of communication with their families or even friends due to fear of judgment, being disowned etc. The relationships they form are not only partnership and friendship but also like family. When a break up happens since they become so heavily codependent it's an extra blow like their losing everything all at once and that's a lot for anyone to handle with no outlet or additional help & support. Add that to any mental health issues and destruction is soon to follow. People look down on it but therapy helps alot.

  • Deno Spencer

    Thanks. That must be why they say stop moving immediately when police say stop and no sudden movements. My heart goes out to her losing her life and the families of the kids. I knew a woman who was murdered by her lesbian lover and she than killed herself. I remember she was so friendly and I thought she was so beautiful and one day it was that.
    Any one know the signs of a person capable of doing that? How do we know the other person is not thinkn of killing us?

  • Deno Spencer

  • whitty hutton

    I've been at the proverbial ledge...I speak from my own experiences when I said "Jesus n therapy". It's a process n most Black people don't seek help or stay in the process long enough to come out on the other side. Nothing is a quick fix but I can attest to what worked/works for me.

  • Junkanoo

    They need so much retraining especially when it comes to how they handle the mental illness the irony being the police department attracts a lot of police officers who aren't right in the head

  • Yetunde

    Why do the police in America shoot to kill? Why do they always aim for a fatal area of the body? If they shoot a person in their leg I'm sure that will be enough to disarm that person. The pain and shock of a bullet to their leg would be enough to make the person drop their weapon.

    And while we were sleeping he was back on Twitter begging for money. Said he more important than schools in Africa. So give him the money instead. He this generation Walt Disney.

    Because of the hype and finger pointing around "homophobia" and "phobias" in general LGBT are underserved in terms of mental health. Their mental issues are attributed to external forces such as "hate" or "failure to be accepted" by others, instead of getting them real assessments to determine if they have a personality disorder and/or other issue. I feel this is the reason why their suicide rates are so high. Now more than any other time in history LGBT is greatly accepted and teens even win awards, get on TV, and can become instantly famous just for saying they are LGBT, in many cases it can be socially rewarding, so we need to stop acting like society is against them and causing poor mental health. If it's possible you can be born gay, is it not also possible that you could be born a less hardy individual as it pertains to stress coping mechanisms? I think we give the youth a false sense of healthy ego when we encourage them that all they need to do is live their truth and be accepted and then they will be "happy". When they aren't, they become more depressed and sullen. There are many transgenders that are completely unclockable, accepted by others etc who still suffer from depression, engage in hi risk behaviors, and are suicidal.

    Some of the happiest people suffer and cover their depression everyday. My brother committed suicide and then we found out that he had stopped 4 people from doing it. When he died, people tore themselves up trying to figure out what they could have done, because they couldn't understand. Depression is a constant battle and not everyone can deal with it; some find a mechanism to cope with it and others succumb to it.

    "Research shows homosexuals and transgenders suffer higher rates of depression and mental illness than heterosexuals."
    ===
    Yup. And the suicide rate among gays and transsexuals is off the charts . Sad.

  • Gina

    Being infertile isn't the same as two men or women not being able to procreate together biologically ever! And gay men have to have anal sex or oral, you sound really ignorant and you should take a sex ed class along with anatomy and physiology

  • Emily post

    Mental Illness is ignored in this country. Exploited by the Media. They think Mentally ill people are entertaining instead of having the potential to be tragic.

  • Zumbatiffani

    This is a heartbreaking story from my hometown of Syracuse. If you're going to report a story you should state the facts. Salah had a lot of mental issues but she did not commit suicide. I hope she is finally at peace.

    Fendi you response is disappointing to say the least calling black ppl names like ignorant and hateful on the worldwide web shows you have some serious self hate issues go back and read your comment you said nothing positive about your own ppl. Second you admit that there is a system in place but you seem to not know what the system is---it is a system of Racism White Supremacy that is reigning over ppl of color all over the globe. It should be clear at this point (if you study history) that Black ppl in general and Black Men in particular are knowingly or unknowingly victims of this system of racism white supremacy----and the last thing you should do if you want to HELP the victims is call them demeaning and degrading names. You should make them aware of the system and encourage them to try to understand it.

    As far as your claims that there are white ppl who don't subscribe to the system of racism white supremacy Where are they? Why do they not have a John Brown movement or Anti White Supremacy movement?

    I have to disagree homosexuality/bisexuality is not natural because it is a negation of procreation.

  • 88

    They do when it's a person who classifies themselves as white but if the person is black they will kill at will because that what the system has trained them to do.

  • Fendi

    Who are you to tell anyone what they should do? I'm not worried about your disappointment. My response had nothing to do with your feelings. The longer you choose to ignore facts, the worse off you'll be.

    Since you're so "Black" and claim to know about white oppression, learn about Black leadership. There's not a Black leader who lived (and was subsequently assassinated) who didn't speak about good Black folk versus the unnecessary elements in the Black race. It is very much a Chris Rock situation where I can say I love Black people, but I hate n*ggas.

    If you were so oppressed, you wouldn't be free to go online and blame the white man for your personal irresponsibility. Grow up.

  • 88

    Do you have anything positive to say about Black ppl?

  • Fendi

    Do you? Blaming the white man for what you perceive as a state of oppression or system of oppression isn't stating anything positive about Black people. Miss me with your rhetoric.

  • 88

    Like I thought I asked you a simple one sentence question and you couldn't even answer it because you hate yourself but it's okay I'll answer it for you Black is Beautiful :)

  • Fendi

    You don't have the ability to answer for me. You don't need to call yourself explaining to ME, a Black woman, what Black is. But you can continue to remain blind to the fact that Black people are as much a threat to other Black people as white people are. Your denial does not negate fact.

    I've been commenting on this blog for awhile. I have yet to see you post anything that is positive as it pertains to Black people. Your generic response, "Black is beautiful," can apply to anything. That isn't an endorsement of Black people, nor is it empowering.

    Again, bring something other than rhetoric to the table.

    God created gay sex. Gay men don't HAVE to have anal or oral; there's frottage and masturbation. Maybe YOU need a sex education class.

    Death is a "negation of procreation," but it's a part of nature.

  • Genia W-m

    Yes, they suffer more mentally because look at what society puts them thru! Many of them are troubled before they even get into a relationship.

    "According to the American Psychological Association (APA), a strong and passionate belief in a deity or higher power, to the point where it impairs one’s ability to make conscientious decisions about common sense matters, will now be classified as a mental illness."

  • dj says

    No worries. I guess when you only listen 25% of the time, 75% shit comes out of your mouth!!!!!

  • whitty hutton

    **** u. I don't know where u got that **** up, asinine assumption abt believing in a higher being but that doesn't apply to my beliefs or spiritual relationship...whether I call Him "God", "Allah, "Buddha", etc. Ur always attacking peoples comments, attacking Black people or anyone who doesn't agree with u. *** u and whatever maggot-infested hellhole u crawled out of spewing this kind of ignorance, when I said nothing like that. **** shyt at its finest...??

    Speak for yourself from your own experiences and beliefs, instead of letting ur insecurity and inability to form your own opinion cause you to constantly attack others u don't agree with or understand.

    Don't put God in your vocabulary, God despices the act of homosexuality and destroyed cities because of it. He gives us free will but he is very clear about what this deviant and perverted behavior represents, and the worst part is that you people try and trick heterosexuals into being a part of it.

  • SummerBaby

    Awwww! Anytime. I know we cut up a lot on here ? but most of us are really loving. :hugs:

    God created homosexuals and since he knows all, he knew exactly what he was doing! ?

    Homosexuality is a sexual disorder, not a mental illness. It is associated with higher rates of depression and suicide.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you miss the part where I said she committed suicide by cop?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No. Many of them are troubled because they suffer from mental illnesses. You can't blame society for sexual disorders.

  • 1/8

    Six people agreed with me.

  • lahla s

    Suicide by cop is a bit unfair in this situation. She baited them into shooting her. Other people killed by cops were not playing games and manipulating the cops into shooting them.

    Straight people commit suicide all of the time too. Depression does not discriminate.

    There is no need to look outside for God when he is within our souls and has been there since the beginning.

    Homosexuality is actually natures way of keeping the earths population under control. More people need more resources.

    Gays are not the only ones that have ànal sèx sweetheart.

    That never happened. Just like snakes don't talk, seas don't part, and you can't put 2 of every animal into one boat.

    You're going to be gay in your next life since you hate them so much.

    Show me one bible verse from Jesus saying that homosexuality is a sin... I'm waiting.

    Shouldn't you be praying against the elite and not some random man on a blog... Priorities, priorities.

  • Fendi

    That's that self-hate and divide & conquer hard at work. Hateful Black people, IMO are more of a detriment to the Black race than hateful whites when that hate is directed towards fellow Black people. I wish people would understand this.
