1952

While assisting his autistic patient, Charles Kinsey found himself pleading with North Miami police.  Laying on the ground with his hands in the air, Kinsey explained that he was a behavior therapist and that he and his patient were both unarmed.

Police were responding to a call that a man was walking around with a gun and was suicidal.  The man was in fact an autistic patient in a nearby group home and the “gun” was in fact a toy truck.  Both facts were stated to police as Kinsey lay in the street with his hands up.

Despite his non-threatening position and calm demeanor, Kinsey was still shot and handcuffed.  After the shooting, police left him bleeding in the street.

Luckily, Kinsey survived; there has been no word on whether or not the officer will be suspended.
