Unfortunately, Police stumbled upon the pair while responding to a call about an armed man threatening to commit suicide, and proceeded to shoot Charles despite his many attempts to resolve the non-issue non-violently, which included him LAYING DOWN ON THE STREET WITH HIS ARMS UP!
However, Florida authorities are here to clear this whole mess up… because it turns out they didn't mean to shoot Charles in the leg — they were actually aiming for his patient instead!!!
Now that the story has gained national media attention three days after it actually occurred, the North Miami Police Department FINALLY held a press conference on Thursday where Miami-Dade police union president John Rivera tried to defend the trigger-happy cops, saying:
"The one officer discharged his firearm trying to strike the individual that they thought was trying to bring harm onto Mr. Kinsey. This is not a case of police brutality. This is not one of those cases where it's a rogue cop. This is not a case other than an officer who was trying to save the life of Mr. Kinsey and feels horrible that his aim missed and struck Mr. Kinsey."
So shooting at a person with mental disabilities is better?! While he was playing with a toy??
NOPE!!! Still the literal definition of police brutality — but at least he "feels horrible" for almost killing an innocent man…
Luckily, Charles' attorney Hilton Napoleon II isn't about to let the authorities get away with their speedy cover-up settlement, saying:
"There has been a discussion of a potential settlement. They want to resolve it relatively fast in good faith to let the community know that they take these things seriously, but I'm not at liberty to discuss the terms of the settlement or what we think a potential settlement will be at this point."
If they took this seriously… the officer responsible would be facing charges, or at the very least out of a job already.
In the since-deleted posts, the reality star exclaimed that the many shootings in which officers kill unarmed black men have "nothing to do with race," and even included the "all lives matter" hashtag.
