Florida Cop Shoots Unarmed
African American Therapist!
Are you noticing a pattern yet? Yesterday, yet ANOTHER video surfaced of ANOTHER unarmed black man who was shot! This time, the unarmed black man, identified as Charles Kinsey, didn’t die. In fact, he’s a Behavioral Therapist who was trying to calm his patient that had escaped from a group home.
Officers responded to a call of a man who apparently had a gun and was threatening to commit suicide. When they arrived, Kinsey tried to explain the issue to them, in fear that they would shoot the patient. Instead, a cop opened fire on him… 3 shots to be exact, 1 striking him in the leg! “I was really more worried about him than myself. I was thinking as long as I have my hands up… they’re not going to shoot me. This is what I’m thinking, they’re not going to shoot me. Wow, was I wrong.” He told Miami’s News 7.
The cop hasn’t been identified, but regardless of what color he is, the level of regard for another man’s life was definitely lacking. His actions were both irresponsible and senseless!
Charles Kinsey was unarmed. He explained the situation to the officers. He had his hands up, and while the PATIENT was the ORIGINAL “threat”… he STILL got shot! To make matters worse, when Kinsey asked the officer why he shot him, the officer responded, “I don’t know”.
What will be the police department’s excuse THIS time?
