It seems like nobody cared what was and did happen to Shannan. To me that is the great shame. That shame is only compounded if today, the people with power and authority do nothing to bring the facts to light.The thing is, if she were drunk and high, ran into a wet thicket and died----
If she had just recently called 911, and sounded distressed enough for the operator to note she needs help,
If she had just banged on several doors, causing residents to call 911 concerned for her,
If you are Pak, and you both witnessed her on the phone with 911, and learned from a neighbor that police had been called,
She disappears from sight,
If they are all too selfless and unheroic to chase her to keep her from hurting herself,
If they are all too inept at problem solving that they don't get neighbors to help her, including a Dr. and LE officer living in the community,
If they don't even consider dialing 911 themselves and saying there is a young woman in crisis,
Why can't anybody at least tell the police which way she went, and that it's urgent?
Are the people in Oak Beach that horrible? Is Pak that unconcerned with someone who, if nothing else, is a paycheck for him?
Running off and dying only makes since if people who saw Shannan in crisis are nearly criminally negligent.
My opinion is something more active happened. But if it were just inaction, is that okay? And does it make sense?
Maybe we would learn that Shannan was really 'mentally fried', and that Pak, Brewer, Hackett, and the rest of the good people of Oak Beach, did everything reasonable and possible to aid and assist Shannan in trying to prevent harm befalling her.
What say you, the political, judicial and law enforcement leadership of Suffolk County? If you do nothing of significance this type of event will happen again. IMO.
