Florida police shoot black man lying down with arms in air

Police are deliberately trying to inflame race relations, aren't they?

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jul/21/florida-police-shoot-black-man-lying-down-with-arms-in-air

While lying on his back in the street with his arms in the air, Charles Kinsey told police that he was a behavioral therapist caring for the autistic patient who sat next to him. Despite this, Kinsey left the scene with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Footage released late on Wednesday by Kinsey’s lawyer, shows Kinsey, an unarmed black man, on his back while his patient plays with a toy truck in the moments before an officer opened fire, wounding Kinsey in the leg. The shooting was yet another incident which exposed the fault lines between police and communities of color in the US.

I doubt the police are but it seems that someone is. WHOEVER phoned in "man with a gun" should be indicted. I'm not saying the cop did not make a stupid mistake, probably from fear or poor training but in a libertarian world (Libertyville) if someone phoned a "man with a gun" report the 911 operator would probably clarify by asking "Is he threatening someone?" or "has he shot at someone"?

The mala prohibita rules against "GUNS" has made some people wildly paranoid and the HSA attempt "IF you see something, Report it", has elevated every thing into a scary scenario . This man should sue the cop, the dispatcher , the caller AND the HSA. They are all fear mongers and that is the root problem. IMHO
