The circumstances surrounding the shooting of a North Miami resident, Charles Kinsey, by local police officers shine a brighter light on the divided discussion about race and law enforcement currently sweeping the nation. Mr. Kinsey, a behavioral therapist, was helping one of his autistic patients in the roadway in North Miami, Florida. When police responded to a 911 call about an armed suicidal man in the neighborhood, they instructed the men to remain still.
