In the latest case of police brutality, a caregiver of a young man with autism was shot in North Miami, Florida.After authorities were called to reports of a suicide, the police arrived at the scene in Miami, Florida, where they found Charles Kinsey (a black behavioral therapist) trying to calm down his patient.
After somehow mistaking the toy truck the autistic patient was holding for a gun, the officer fired at Kinsey, harming, but not killing, him. Video soon surfaced of the incident, and many are scratching their heads as to what compelled the police to shoot at all.
When asked, the officer involved said “I don’t know.”
