Fox: felon throws hands in air as challenge to police.
CNN: Upstanding citizen that turned life around brutally murdered by police, probably.
@PeanutButterPopsicle, Internet: *immediately knows everything about psychology, tactics, what the police officer was thinking, how they would react (often with perfect precision easily being able to spot every minor detail that was reported)*
@PeanutButterPopsicle, to be fair this guy works at a mental behavior clinic and an autistic man got out so he went to go find him. The autistic guy had a toy truck that was reported as a possible gun so cops were on the side of caution. The guy in the picture got there first and laid down on the ground with his hands up while trying to inform the police and calm down the autistic man. The police ended up shooting him and their defense was that they were aiming for the autistic man because they thought he might hurt the other guy but they "missed". So overall it's a pretty terrible story. Only good part is he didn't die
@AK47, I like the officer's response to why he shot Kinsey...
“When he shot me, it was so surprising. It was like a mosquito bite,” Kinsey told WSVN from his hospital bed. “And when he hit me, I’m like, I still got my hands in the air. I said, ‘You know, I just got shot.’ And I’m saying to them, ‘Sir, why did you shoot me?’ And his words to me, he said, ‘I don’t know.’”
@PeanutButterPopsicle, TMZ: Kim Kardashian did something
@AK47, Also the cop shot not once but three times
@PeanutButterPopsicle, You do know what this is about, correct? This guy was shot because the cop "didn't know"
I've honestly never understood flame wars about this stuff, we shouldn't categorize ourselves as "BlueLivesMatter" or "BlackLivesMatter," That furthers division and blocks intelligent conversation, since neither side looks very hard at facts, since they've already taken a stand. I think both sides should agree that what happened to the guy in this picture was wrong, eh?
@UmActually, For background, this guy was trying to find a man with severe autism of whom he is the caretaker. Police were called because the autistic man had a truck that one resident of the area believed to be a gun. The cops arrived and instructed the men to lie down, the caretaker did, raising his hands up in the air and began informing the officers of the situation, explaining that the object in the other man's hand was a toy truck, and that he was severely autistic and unlikely to be able to comply, talking with officers for nearly 30 seconds. This is when things get weird and pretty not ok. The officer fired and hit the caretaker, who held the autistic man to prevent him from running and risking being shot as well. I see no debate, it shouldn't have happened.
@UmActually, Whoever is downvoting you needs a serious reality check
When the doctor say you gonna die but Maury just told you that you ain't the father
He's black, so of course he's afraid of the word "arrest".
