Protesters Storm North Miami Police Department Over Shooting of Therapist Charles Kinsey

Protesters stormed North Miami’s police department to demand justice for a black man who was shot while his hands were in the air.  The protesters shouted “Whose streets? Our Streets” before officers forced them out of the building.

According to local affiliate WSVN–the network that broke the story–the unnamed officer who shot Charles Kinsey has been placed on paid leave.

The officer released a statement on Thursday saying he did what he had to do “in a split second” by shooting Kinsey. Kinsey, a worker at a group home, was unarmed and only trying to help an autistic man who was playing with a toy truck.

As BreakingBrown previously reported, the officer claims he was actually trying to shoot the mentally disabled man.

    Black people MUST take a step back and think. Something abnormal is going on here. You shoot the guy with his hands up, missing a mental deficient with a toy truck in his hand.

    1st thing Black people must do is change up their way of thinking of yelling and screaming for justice all the time…. that obviously doesn’t work and it while you’re doing that they’re eating lunch. I am not gonna tell you what to do but I think I can show you better then tell you. you know what to do but for some reason. Martin seems so much easier then Malcolm.
