As I listened to Donald Trump utter words of fear about those who are out to get cops, my eyes came across the latest version of ‘let’s shoot someone today.” Charles Kinsey, is a behavior therapist in Miami, and was working with a patient who got out on the streets. Photos clearly show him lying on the ground with his hands high up in the sky, and the patient is sitting playing with a toy truck. Mr. Kinsey shouts, “I am a behavior therapist” toward police who are observing the scene.
So, what happens. A cop fires his gun and wounds Kinsey. The explanation of the police officer was: “I did what I had to do.” Most probably, that feeling was one shared by many officers. It is that feeling that winds up with cops getting shot by those who do not share the feeling.
