Of Course today, Everybody is talking about Ted Cruz appeared at the Republican National Convention and DID not endorse Donald trump...and was subsequently booed off the floor..
While that is indeed news worthy...Another Black man was shot last night by police.. An unarmed Black man...Fortunately for him.. He will live to talk about it!
A North Miami, Fla., caretaker was shot and wounded by police Monday as he tried to retrieve a 23-year-old autistic man who had wandered from a mental-health center into the street, the Miami Herald reports.
Cellphone video released Wednesday shows the caretaker, Charles Kinsey, lying on the ground, with his hands in the air, trying to reason with police officers as they approach Kinsey and his patient, the autistic man.
“When I went to the ground, I’m going to the ground just like this here, with my hands up,” Kinsey, a behavioral therapist, said, according to WSVN. “And I am laying down here just like this, and I’m telling them again, ‘Sir, there is no need for firearms. I’m unarmed, he’s an autistic guy. He got a toy truck in his hand.’
Charles Kinsey said that before he got shot, he was trying to calm his patient, who can be heard in the video screaming at Charles Kinsey to “shut up.”
“Rinaldo, please be still. Rinaldo, sit down. Rinaldo, lay on your stomach,” Charles Kinsey ..can be heard on the video telling his patient.
Then Charles Kinsey is shot in the leg by a police officer.
“I’m like this right here, and when he shot me, it was so surprising,” Charles Kinsey said. “It was like a mosquito bite, and when it hit me, I’m like, ‘I still got my hands in the air, and I said, ‘No, I just got shot! And I’m saying, ‘Sir, why did you shoot me?’ and his words to me, he said, ‘I don’t know.’'
“My life flashed in front of me,” he added. “When he hit me, my first thing I’m thinking, I’m thinking about my family.”
According to WSVN, Kinsey said that what upset him most about the incident was what happened after he was shot.
“They flipped me over, and I’m faced down in the ground, with cuffs on, waiting on the rescue squad to come. I’d say about 20, about 20 minutes it took the rescue squad to get there. And I was like, bleeding—I mean bleeding—and I was like, ‘Wow,’” he told the news station.
On Wednesday evening, a group called the Circle of Brotherhood, which works to solve problems in the community, stood outside the North Miami Police Department, demanding answers in the shooting. Charles Kinsey is a member of the organization.
