Justice for Unarmed Black Man Shot by Cops While Trying to Assist Autistic Adult

Target: Florida Attorney General

Goal: Justice for unarmed innocent caregiver shot with his hands up.

Charles Kinsey, an unarmed behavioral therapist trying to calm his autistic patient was shot by police even though he had his hands up, was totally complying and asked the officer not to shoot. Luckily enough, the bullet went through his leg which posed a non-life threatening injury. When the victim asked the officer why he was shot, the officer simply said, “I don’t know.” Charles Kinsey was handcuffed and left to bleed out for 20 minutes on the hot Miami pavement before the ambulance arrived.

North Miami woke up to the news of this brutality meted out on an innocent, unarmed behavioral therapist who acted to save the life of his patient. The on-duty therapist was only calming his autistic patient who had run out of a group home. According to North Miami police, officers responded to a 911 call reporting a man with a gun threatening to commit suicide. On the scene, the police mistook the object in the suspect’s hand for a gun. In fact, the suspect, the autistic patient, had a toy truck in his hand which was nowhere near the shape of a gun.

The North Miami police department, the county and the State of Florida should be held liable for Mr. Kinsey’s injuries and resulting hospital (and possible therapy) bills.

    The victim, who was shot, plainly and clearly stated, after he’d been admitted to the hospital, that when he asked the cop why he shot him, the cop answered “I don’t know!” What a Dumbass! Cops are too big for their britches these days, and all this crap started when the killing of Trayvon Martin by the thug, George Zimmerman, who (just like O.J. Simpson) literally got away with murder! THIS IS 100% UNACCEPTABLE!!! STOP KILLING, AND TRYING TO KILL, INNOCENT BLACK MALES!!!!

    • Oh please, stop with the race card. We’re all sick of it. This man could be asian, caucasian, indian, Korean it doesn’t matter. If the police were wrong, which if definitely sounds like, they deserved to be punished.
      You wanna play the race card. Fine. What about the WHITE police officers, whom were not in riot gear, at the peaceful demonstration, who were shot in cold blood by a BLACK sniper. I’m playing the white race card you moron. Enough already!

      trayvon was 6’2, zimmerman was 5’6″… he was not white, he was Hispanic, he was getting his head bashed on the pavement… he shot trayvon in pure self defense….to bring up his name you show you have no idea of the facts….there are problems, this was not one of them…. it was an issue entirely created by the media

  2. Oh, and uh yeah, OJ is black if you hadn’t noticed.
