Police Activity Presented by Adonis Golden Ratio Featuring: Bodycam Shows Officers Pleading With Armed Man Before Shooting
** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) ** On Monday, July 1, 2019, at approximately 12:45 PM, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was requested by the Athens Clarke County Police Department (ACCPD) to investigate an officer involved shooting. Preliminary information indicates that 2 ACCPD officers responded to a scene after receiving a 911 call about a male, later identified as Aaron Hong, age 23, causing a disturbance with a butcher knife at the River Club Apartments on Macon Highway, Athens, GA. Hong was using the knife in an aggressive manner and appeared to be injured himself. When police made contact, Hong immediately confronted them and began to walk towards officers with the knife in hand.

During the incident, officers provided numerous verbal commands for Hong to drop the knife. Instead, Hong charged one of the officers with the knife and the officer fired his weapon multiple times, striking Hong. Hong managed to get back up and during the confrontation attempted to grab one of the officer’s weapons. The second officer fired at Hong multiple times, striking him. Nearby medics responded and Hong died at the scene. One officer sustained minor injuries and was treated on scene.

 Borderline Personality Disorder
By: Taschant Esceith

(Parental guidance is advised for this article)

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is sometimes misdiagnosed because other conditions, overlapping with BPD, can confuse the manifestation of this illness. BPD is an intricate condition and can leave the sufferer and family members bewildered if not diagnosed properly. The difficulty with diagnosing BPD is that, not all the symptoms are always present, and one would generally place the focus on the symptoms currently causing disturbance in the person’s life (e.g. depression). The symptoms of BPD can change frequently (rapid cycling), and can also last for months. BPD generally has nine symptoms which can manifest themselves in various ways, and at different intervals in a person’s life. To be diagnosed with BPD one needs at least five of the nine symptoms (not all BPD's experience them in the same way):


A borderline finds it difficult to self-soothe when they are alone during times when their mind torments them, causing them to feel abandoned. They also fear being abandoned during times when they are anxious. Perceived abandonment can lead to impulsive, explosive behaviours due to their intense inner turmoil.


Splitting is a psychological term characterized by the alternation between extremes of idealization and devaluation. When a borderline idealizes someone they can’t remember the bad things. When they devalue the person, they can’t remember the good things. Splitting causes emotional pain and confusion and can result in drastic reactions. It is an automatic self-defense mechanism that borderlines subconsciously use to protect themselves. If their partner breaks up with them, their mind may split their partner as "completely bad", remembering all the bad things they ever did to them, or said to them, because if all the positive memories of the person are forgotten in that moment, the breakup doesn’t feel so bad. The problem is that their mind later switches back to idealization, and then it hits them, creating the biggest loss ever, instead of a realistic view. Splitting is not always used to protect themselves. It can also be triggered if they see something they don’t like in a person or if their needs aren’t being met.


Borderlines don’t always know who they are, or where they belong. They may run away or make frequent changes in their life because they feel they are in the wrong place, wrong job or wrong relationship. It can also lead to changing of goals. Co-occurring disorders within this category may include other personality disorders.


Borderlines may struggle with behaviours such as reckless driving, spending sprees, binge eating, anger outbursts, fits of rage, frequent moving, running away, ending relationships abruptly, quitting jobs without notice or drug and alcohol abuse. Co-occurring disorders within this category may include addictive disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder and eating disorders.


Borderlines tend to self-harm to relieve intense emotional pain/anger, or to feel something when they feel emotionally numb. When their soul is in complete turmoil, and the darkness surrounds them from all sides, due to the splitting their own life and sense of self, death seems like the only escape, leading to the risk of suicide. (If you feel suicidal always seek professional help).


Borderlines struggle with intense emotions, mood swings and dysphoric mental states. They sometimes need someone to comfort them and make them feel that everything is "okay", because their own mind is not able in the midst of torment, but since people don’t know how to deal with these symptoms, they don’t receive the comfort they need, leading to reckless behaviours. Co-occurring disorders within this category may include bipolar disorder, depression or anxiety disorders:

"Among borderline personality disorder inpatients, 88% meet criteria for a lifetime anxiety disorder, including PTSD (56%), panic disorder (48%), social anxiety disorder (46%), specific phobia (32%), obsessive compulsive disorder (16%), generalized anxiety disorder (14%), and agoraphobia (12%)... Anxiety disorders are more prevalent among borderline personality disorder patients than other clinical populations." (


A deep, dark void may drive them to hunt for love, intimacy, drugs, alcohol, emotional stimulation or entertainment, hoping to find relief. Sometimes they hate being alone, other times they shut the world out.


Their anger is highly intense and may lead to self-harm, suicidal behaviour, reckless driving, substance abuse, etc.


Dissociation can be experienced in various ways:

• Depersonalisation ~ They feel detached from themselves or completely numb and emotionless.

• Derealisation ~ They feel detached from the world (e.g. compared to their intensity they may feel the world lacks emotional depth and colouring and because of it they may struggle to connect with people on a level that is satisfying).

• Amnesia ~ They may be confused about days and time, experience memory loss and forget details.

Episodes can be triggered by various factors (e.g. arguments, loss, stress, breakups, recent changes, perceived failures, cognitive distortions, etc.). Neurotransmitter imbalances may also be responsible. There is also evidence to believe that BPD is related to a seizure disorder, affecting the emotional parts of the brain.
