Florida police shoot black man with his hands up as he tries to help autistic patient

Charles Kinsey, an employee at an assisted living facility, was trying to retrieve an autistic young man who had wandered away and was blocking traffic. Police challenged Kinsey, and he got down on the ground with his empty hands in the air. Police shot Kinsey anyway. Then the police handcuffed Kinsey and left him bleeding on the pavement in the hot Florida sun for 20 minutes until help arrived.
