Black lives matter.
The recent cases of police brutality caught on camera have been shaking up the nation and leading to many protests across the country. While minorities are fearing for their lives at the hands of those that are meant to serve and protect them, senseless killings are still going on without any justice.
This past week, the officer who had the majority of the involvement in the death of Freddie Gray was cleared of all charges against him. Unfortunately, that means that no one is being held responsible for his death, despite it being ruled a homicide by authorities.
Now, police are still shooting at minorities, and this week, an unarmed man was shot as he was laying on the ground with his hands up. While he survived the shooting, the reason why this man found himself under fire definitely makes this story a heartbreaking one.
Crooked cops still aren’t being held accountable.
Charles Kinsey reportedly is a caretaker for autistic patients, and found himself chasing after a particular male patient that escaped from his group. The therapist was trying to calm his patient down after police were called and heard that a man was walking around with a gun threatening to kill himself. The gun was actually a toy truck that the patient kept with him.
By the time authorities arrived, they told Kinsey and his patient to get on the ground. Kinsey laid down on the ground with his hands up in the air, trying to calm his patient down and get him to abide the same way. While his hands were up, the therapist told the press that he was shot by an officer anyways. The patient refused to comply with the officer’s demands, which Kinsey was trying to calm him down for.
