    The Miami Herald cites North Miami Assistant Police Chief Neal Cuevas as saying officers responded to the scene Monday, where they began giving orders to 47-year-old Charles Kinsey and his 23-year-old patient to lie on the ground.

    Kinsey lies down and tries to get his patient to comply. Cuevas says an officer then fired three times, striking Kinsey in the leg. No weapon was found.

    Kinsey's attorney, Hilton Napoleon, provided a video to the Herald on Wednesday taken moments before the shooting. It was not immediately clear who shot the provided video, which appears to include two separate clips.

    It shows Kinsey lying in the middle of the street with his hands up, asking the officers not to shoot him, while the autistic man sits next to him, holding what appears to be a toy truck, yelling at him to "shut up."

    An unarmed behavioral therapist says he was shot by police in North Miami while lying on the ground with his arms up and trying to help his autistic patient, who had run away from a group home.

    Charles Kinsey, 47, was shot once in the leg and is recovering in the hospital, he told WSVN-TV.

    He was next to his 23-year-old patient, who was playing with a toy truck while sitting cross-legged in the middle of the road, a video of the moments before the shooting shows. You can watch the video above.

    Police had responded to the area near Northeast 14th Avenue and Northeast 127th Street for a report of an armed man threatening suicide, WPLG-TV reports

    But Kinsey says the “armed man” was his confused patient, who was holding a toy truck, not a gun.

    “All he has is a toy truck. A toy truck. I am a behavioral therapist at a group home,” Kinsey can be heard saying to the officers before he was shot.

    The officer involved in the shooting has not yet been named.

    The shooting itself was not caught on the cell phone camera.

    No, I'd rather live by American standards. Bad, don't get me wrong. But not nearly as bad as Romania.

    False dichotomy.

    Not what I said.

    No, it isn't. I directly responded to Zahlanzi's "romania is the example to live by. no need to set the bar any higher" by saying I'd rather live by American standards than Romanian. I didn't imply that American standards were therefore good (enough).

    exactly what you said.

    i just told you an unarmed man was shot while holding his hands up while he was trying to help somebody, you proceeded to tell me how the police handles people in romania as if that would what, make it better? make my point invalid? or was it simply because you thought it would get to me?

    so what does it say about you that when someone presents you with some messed up issue, you try to attack that someone ?
  13. 21 Jul '16 10:53
    I wonder what Zahlanzi does to make the human rights situation in Romania better.

    Does he frequently attend protests against the human rights violations? Does he spend a lot of time on Romanian forums discussing the problems in Romania?

    I wonder.

    So when you post a random news story about police brutality it's alright, but when I do it, it isn't?

    Edit: not even close to "exactly" what I said, by the way. Do you know the meaning of the word "exactly"?

    " I'd rather live by American standards than Romanian."
    which is another way of saying that "as long as american standards are better than romania, there is no need to fix anything"

    not to mention that was never the question. you just tried to insult me like a child
