POLICE BRUTALITY AND EXECUTIONS: “Retired US Marshal, ‘No Shots Needed to be Fired'” / RT America / Ashlee Banks ☮

The North Miami Police Department is under fire after the officer-involved shooting of an unarmed black special-needs caregiver. Charles Kinsey was shot after police responded to a call of a man in a street with a gun, threatening to commit suicide. The man in the street with Kinsey was an autistic gentleman who was actually carrying a toy truck and not a gun. Cellphone video appears to show Kinsey cooperating with police orders before he was shot. Retired US Marshal Matthew Fogg tells RT America’s Ashlee Banks that many officers overreact in these sorts of situations and that, based on the video he’s seen, “no shots needed to be fired.”
