ACLU of Florida Statement on the Police Shooting of an Unarmed Man in North Miami

ACLU of Florida

MIAMI, FL - The below statement on the shooting of Charles Kinsey by North Miami police officers is from Howard Simon, Executive Director of the ACLU of Florida:

“We are extremely disturbed by the police shooting of Charles Kinsey, an unarmed caretaker helping a patient with autism outside a group home facility in North Miami. Thankfully, Mr. Kinsey is alive and not more gravely injured – but had the officer’s weapon been pointed just a few degrees differently, this senseless incident could have been a much greater tragedy.
