Wow… the world as we know it huh? I’m a different sort so all this chaos, violence and murder in the world has caused me to think there is a different type of cause. That cause may be a dark energy that is pulling on people… Did we ever consider the Earth may have it’s own way of purging itself of a problem? Is it possible that the real energies, magnetic pulls, and certain alterations of certain elements within the soil would cause humans to freak out?
If you take it to a different level, isn’t this the very type of scenario we have seen on so many horror movies about possession? I have posted the article below, which I’m sure people have seen already but my main concern is that no one, not even the officer himself seems to know why what happened happened. When the man straight up asks him why he was shot, the officer answers “I don’t know”. You don’t know? They don’t teach that answer at the police academy y’all.
The rep for the state doesn’t know. She thinks it might be PTSD…
We should all be thinking about the causes right now and not the effects. We must stop fighting each other and turn our minds toward the real cause of this. The real causes are those forces of darkness that is pulling the entire Earth towards chaos and reconstruction. Only those individuals who provide the weapons and the funds know what their motivation is but it’s there and it’s coming fast. Humans are under attack, we just haven’t realized it yet….

North Miami Police Chief Gary Eugene, who was only sworn into office July 12, has refused to name the police officer who shot an unarmed black group home therapist as he lay on the ground with his hands in the air after trying to comfort his escaped autism patient.
‘I realize there are many questions about what happened Monday night,’ Eugene said at the Thursday afternoon press conference. ‘You have questions, the community has questions, we as a city, and as a member of this police department, I also have questions. I assure you, we will get all the answers.’
Eugene refused to identify or answer any questions about the shooting officer who hit Charles Kinsey in the leg with a bullet as the therapist lay on his back with his hands up, asking officers not to shoot, and assuring them his patient only had a toy truck, not a gun.
On Wednesday, John Rivera, a union official said the officer was aiming for the autistic man, not the therapist, according to the New York Daily News.
Cell phone video of the incident showed the autistic man, yelling ‘Shut up! Shut up!’ The union official said that the man was perceived as a threat. According to the Miami Herald, the officer thought that Kinsey was in danger.
The police chief did say that officers responded to the scene under the impression that there was a man with a gun, who was threatening to kill himself, and that witnesses and 911 callers had said as such. ‘Officers responded with that threat in mind,’ he said.
He stressed that no gun was ever recovered.
He also confirmed that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the incident.
To shouts from reporters asking about the race of the officer, how long he or she has been on the force, and when the public would hear from Eugene again, or what Eugene’s reaction to the video was, the chief was escorted away from the press corps.
North Miami Congresswoman Frederica Wilson took the podium directly after the chief left and expressed her disbelief and outrage.
‘Police officers in this community, we know them, we trust them, this is like a nightmare to me. I’m just in shock. I’m stunned. The video is like a nightmare, I can’t believe it,’ she said.
She implied that perhaps the officer was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. ‘A lot of police officers are suffering from PTSD,’ she said, recalling a conversation she’d had with Honorable Judge Steve Leifman, who has led the effort to overhaul the approach to mentally ill criminal offenders in Miami-Dade.
‘I can’t even imagine what I saw today,’ she said. ‘We’re pro-police, we love the police. But today I’m in shock, in total shock of what I saw.’
Katherine Rundle, State Attorney for Miami-Dade County, released a statement saying, ‘We will conduct our own investigation and review all of the evidence to determine whether the actions of the shooting officer constitute a criminal act beyond and to the exclusion of every reasonable doubt.’
Police in North Miami were responding to a report of a man with what appeared to be a gun when they came across Charles Kinsey and his patient, who had run away from a group home.
‘All he has is a toy truck – a toy truck,’ Kinsey pleads with cops, lying flat on the ground with arms raised, as seen in cell phone footage of the incident. ‘I am a behavior therapist at a group home.’
Kinsey works at MacTown Group Panther Homes, according to NBC News. His Facebook page says he works for the Exceptional Development Corp. of South Florida and studied at Miami Dade College and Miami Northwestern.
Kinsey tries to get his patient to comply, using soothing words so he remains calm.
‘Rinaldo, please be still, Rinaldo,’ he is heard saying in video released by WSVN. ‘Sit down, Rinaldo. Lay on your stomach.’
The man, 23, sits next to him and yells ‘shut up’ while playing with his toy truck.
‘Don’t shoot me,’ Kinsey begs.
An officer then fires three times, striking Kinsey in the leg, authorities said.
No weapon was found.
Kinsey is black. Police haven’t released the name or race of the officer who shot him.
Kinsey, 47, says the 911 caller must have mistaken a toy that the autistic man had for a gun.
‘I’m like this right here, and when he shot me, it was so surprising,’ Kinsey told WSVN.
‘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.”
After the shooting, Kinsey and his patient were patted down. Kinsey was cuffed.
‘I was really more worried about him than myself,’ he said of his patient.
‘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.’
North Miami police has placed the officer on administrative leave for at least a week,’ the Miami Herald reported.
Kinsey’s lawyer, Hilton Napoleon, said he is in talks with city officials about a possible settlement.
‘They realize this was something inappropriate regarding the shooting,’ Napoleon told the Herald.
‘If police departments come out more and admit fault, that would probably go a long way.’
‘There has been a discussion of a potential settlement,’ Napoleon said, according to Local10, ‘and they want to resolve it relatively fast in good faith to let the community know that they take these things seriously, but I’m not at liberty to discuss the terms of the settlement or what we think a potential settlement will be at this point.’
Napoleon added that Kinsey is ‘traumatized’ and has been speaking to a psychiatrist.
Kinsey is expected to recover and go home later this week.
