Florida police shoot unarmed African American therapist

Unarmed South Florida man with hands up shot by police while calming autistic patient

20 July 2016

NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) – A therapist who works with people with disabilities is telling his story after he said police shot him while he was trying to help his patient with autism.

Cellphone video was released Wednesday afternoon showing Charles Kinsey lying on the ground with his hands in the air, telling officers that weapons are not necessary. “When I went to the ground, I went to the ground with my hands up,” Kinsey said, “and I am laying there just like this. Telling them again there is no need for firearms. He is autistic. He has a toy truck in his hand.”

In his hospital bed and wearing bandages, Kinsey said, he was attempting to calm an autistic patient who ran away from a group home. Kinsey could be heard in the video saying, “All he has is a toy truck. A toy truck. I am a behavior therapist at a group home.”

He is also heard asking his patient to calm down. “Rinaldo, please be still, Rinaldo. Sit down, Rinaldo. Lay on your stomach.”

The ordeal went on for a few minutes before Kinsey said one of the officers shot him. “I’m like this right here, and when he shot me, it was so surprising,” Kinsey said. “I thought it was a mosquito bite, and when it hit me I had my hands in the air, and I’m thinking I just got shot! And I’m saying, ‘Sir, why did you shoot me?’ and his words to me were, ‘I don’t know.’”

North Miami Police said the incident began, Monday, when someone called 911 and said there was a man walking around with a gun threatening suicide. Kinsey said the man was his patient and the alleged gun was a toy truck. “I was really more worried about him than myself. I was thinking as long as I have my hands up … they’re not going to shoot me. This is what I’m thinking, they’re not going to shoot me. Wow, was I wrong.”

Kinsey said what police did after the shooting is what upsets him the most. “They got three sets of handcuffs. They cuff my hands, and they flip me over, and I am laying on the concrete like this. I’m bleeding,” he said.

Despite everything that’s happened, Kinsey is happy to be alive. Standing by his bedside, his wife said, “Right now, I am just grateful that he is alive, and he is able to tell his story.”

Kinsey only wants to help people and is perplexed as to why officers fired. “Everytime I close my eyes I am getting flashbacks,” Kinsey said.

Around 6 p.m. Wednesday, a group called the Circle of Brotherhood stood outside the North Miami Police Department, requesting that police answer questions about what happened and if the officer responsible for shooting will face charges.

North Miami Police have not released the officer’s name or an update on their investigation. However, they did say that the State Attorney is now involved with the investigation.

On Monday, North Miami police shot Charles Kinsey, a behavior therapist at a group home, as he lay in the street with his hands in the air. At the time of the incident, Kinsey was attempting to explain to officers that one of his patients was autistic and holding a toy truck, and not a gun: here.

Donald Trump’s convention in the USA, update

Code Pink Protester Mobbed By Trump Supporters For ‘No Hate’ Banner

20 July 2016

Jodie Evans, a member of the activist group “Code Pink,” was holding a peace banner up at the RNC when Trump supporters covered/blocked it with an American flag. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“It’s not a Donald Trump rally without someone getting tossed out, and Tuesday’s vote at the Republican National Convention where Trump received the GOP presidential nomination was no exception.

During a speech by former brain surgeon Ben Carson, Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans attempted to hold up a “No Racism. No Hatred” sign inside Quicken Loans Arena, only to be swarmed by security and Trump supporters.

Trump supporters were quick to jump in, with one older woman seen attempting to rip it from her hands. Others then surrounded her holding up American flags so that the her message, which they apparently found offensive, was not seen by CSPAN’s cameras.

One Trump fan was seen throwing his flag over her face and pulling her head backwards as he attempted to topple her.

Evans was then escorted from the arena by security.”

LIVE from the YouTube stage The Young Turks panel of Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore break down Ted Cruz getting booed off the stage of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

The Republican National Convention staggered through its third day Wednesday in increasing political crisis, as Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the runner-up in the primary campaign, was heavily booed during his speech for refusing to endorse Republican nominee Donald Trump. Hanging over the convention was the threat of open violence against political opponents, combined with continued homilies to the police and calls for a vast expansion of war abroad: here.

In contrast to most of his speeches, Trump’s remarks on Thursday closely followed a prepared script, eschewing his characteristic stream-of-consciousness rambling. However, this change in form did not improve the logical coherence of Trump’s thought. Rather than laying out a coherent political program, his speech was a series of non-sequiturs, united mainly by their viciousness and the candidate’s own limitless self-obsession: here.

Neo-nazi Soldiers of Odin paramilitarists in the Netherlands


This February 2016 video is called The Racist Vigilante Group called Soldiers of Odin in Norway.

In Syria, there are ISIS paramilitarists who behead people. In Syria, there are also ‘moderate’ paramilitarists, financed by taxpayers from the USA and other NATO countries, who behead small children.

In Ukraine, there are extreme right paramilitarists, financed by the oligarchical government and United States and other NATO countries’ taxpayers, who behead people.

In West European countries, there are paramilitarists with the same neo-nazi ideology as their Ukrainian counterparts. So far, as far as I know, they have not beheaded people yet. However, their violence has already started.

PvdA [Dutch sister party of British Labour] MP Marcouch: methods of Soldiers of Odin are disgusting

Today, 08:30

PvdA MP Marcouch has asked parliamentary questions about the action by Soldiers of Odin this weekend in Winschoten [in Groningen province]. He thinks that such behavior does not fit in the Netherlands and calls the methods of the group disgusting. “It can not be that these people play frontier justice.”

Last weekend the group put a message on Facebook about a “manhunt” of a refugee who was “arrested”. The man was said to supposedly have harassed women. Police found an asylum seeker who was beaten up at the site of the Soldiers of Odin report. …

“I have submitted these questions to show that neo-Nazi-like groups should not have a free hand to hunt for migrants and refugees,” said Marcouch to the NOS Radio 1 News. He says that organizations like Pegida and Soldiers of Odin get on the streets in military uniforms to deliberately hunt refugees. “That is disgusting and we should not ignore that or play it down.”

Disappointed

The police said in response that such groups can act as extra eyes and ears. “But we always disapprove of lynch justice.”

Marcouch is disappointed by that reaction. “I think it’s unacceptable that the police would work with these people or would welcome their acts. We must reject this.”

He says there is a difference between citizens who may catch someone red-handed and organized groups. “They have an idea: to hunt migrants and refugees.” …

Soldiers of Odin (SOO) was founded in Finland in 2015 as a vigilante. The goal, according to the gang, is to protect people, especially women, against criminal immigrants. Members of the group are patrolling the streets. SOO says they are the extra eyes and ears of the police.

The reason for the establishment was the influx of thousands of asylum seekers to Finland. …

The founder is Mika Ranta, who has ties to far-right groups. He was convicted in 2005 for assault.

According to Finnish broadcasting corporation YLE, racism and neo-Nazism are rampant in the SOO.

Soldiers of Odin are called after the supreme god in ancient Norse mythology, Odin. In that mythology, Odin’s soldiers were called berserkers:

Berserkers (or berserks) were champion Norse warriors who are primarily reported in the Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk. These Viking champions would often go into battle without mail-coats; the word “berserk” meant going into battle wearing only wolf or animal skins.

This abuse of ancient Scandinavian paganism for modern extreme right politics is an inheritance from Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. Where, eg, an SS division was called Wiking. Where Odin was depicted during nazi Christmas celebrations. German neonazi band Landser has several songs in praise of Odin/Wotan.

Mika Ranta by the way is a strange sort of Finnish nationalist, calling his neo-fascist gang Soldiers of Odin. Though Finland is usually seen as part of Scandinavia, ancient Finnish pagans did not worship Odin or other Norse gods. The Finnish language is not related at all to Scandinavian or other Germanic languages; rather to Hungarian and North Asian languages.

Nineteenth century French racist ideologist Count de Gobineau, an inspiration for twentieth century nazism, even considered Finns to be not white, but as belonging to the supposedly inferior Asian ‘yellow race’.

Gobineau saw Finns as one of two threats to the ‘Aryan master race’ in Europe: Finns from the north, Africans from the south. Nineteenth century Swedish anti-Finnish xenophobe August Sohlman based himself on Gobineau for his propaganda against equality for ‘racially inferior’ Finnish people to ‘Aryan’ Swedes. So did elitists among the Swedish-speaking minority in Finland.
