Charles Kinsey- Shot for no reason July 21, 2016

Posted by Chris Mark in Uncategorized.

Kinsey.jpgUPDATE…I am horrified…here is what the Miami PD said: “There was a call about a suicidal man with a gun, the officers already heard that. When they arrived they saw two men, Mr. Kinsey and the other individual, the white male, and it appeared to the officers that the white male was trying to do harm to Mr. Kinsey. The officers, realizing and believing that there was a firearm, and many officers thought the white male had a firearm, only much later when we were able to Monday morning quarterback do we find out it was a toy. Only much later do we find out that the individual was autistic. The officers on the scene did not do that. And fearing for Mr. Kinsey’s life, the officer discharged his firearm, trying to save Mr. Kinsey’s life. And he missed, and accidentally struck Mr. Kinsey. He thought the white male and his actions were such that he felt Mr. Kinsey’s life was in danger. 

Look…I have been in the business of shooting people.  This excuse is bullshit. No other way to say it. Their JOB is to know whether there is a real threat.  The idea that this incompetent buffoon “…missed.” (two times) and then shot the ‘hostage’ is even worse.  What kind of incompetent idiots do they hire at Miami PD.  no doubt they will say: “What is this blogger’s experience?”…Google me dummies. (yes…I called you dummies…to be polite)  I can assure you, this was an easy shot and THANK GOD  you missed because you would have killed an innocent Autistic man.  The incompetence of this PD and situation is horrifying.  The fact you are trying to justify this idiot’s actions are even worse.  WOW…


WOW…I read this today and nearly cried.  This Behavioral Therapist (Charles Kinsey) was outside trying to get a 23 year old Autistic man to come back into the building.  Someone called the police saying that a man had a “gun” and was threatening suicide.  The police came and put the Therapist on the ground.  He is Black.  The therapist had his hands up and had been holding a TOY TRUCK…the Autistic man was sitting beside him in what we now call “chris cross applesauce”….

Suddenly, this idiot cop shoots the therapist in the leg!  WTF?!!  Seriously?  These are the people we are hiring and training?  A moron who shoots a man laying on the ground with his hands raised?

My son is Autistic and I am reminded of his therapists.  These are great folks who truly love people.  I am imagining this therapist going into the hot Miami sun with a toy truck to try to convince this person to come back into the center.  Suddenly he is on the ground being suspected of some crime.  If that is not bad enough…this moronic cop shoots  him?

I am horrified and apoplectic.  This cop should be charged.  What else can you say?

Either this officer lacks the temper to deal with a crisis or his training was pathetic.

My son is 17 with moderate autism and out fear of situations like this and others, we participate in the sheriff acadamy. My son will answer questions from the cadets trying to get his basic info, which is interesting and reinforces the need to use open ended questions, and then I talk to the cadets from a parent’s perspective.
It seems that whenever special needs and law enforcement mix, there is huge potential for a bad outcome. LE have a huge job with constant threats and stress. I figure any training and first hand experience will help them and hopefully save some lives to include a potential therapist.
Of course this LEO seemed to lack training and needs to find another job I think.
