Black Lives Matter.

Charles Kinsey does important work. He is an aide and therapist to adults whose autism is to involved to allow for living independently. As a parent to a child with autism, I am all too familiar with the need for these facilities, and the amazing work, patience, goodness those who work there possess.

It wasn't enough that Charles Kinsey was lying down face up with his hands in the air. A police officer shot him in the leg.

Thank goodness he was not killed. Charles Kinsey asked the officer "why did you shoot me?" The officer replied, "I don't know."

I know. I think we all know.
