Miami police have identified Officer Jonathan Aledda as the cop who shot and wounded Charles Kinsey, a Black behavioral therapist who was attempting to assist an autistic patient.

According to the police department, Aledda was actually trying to shoot the unarmed patient — not Charles Kinsey — because he believed the patient was a danger to Charles.

Here’s the thing that doesn’t add up about that narrative — if Charles wasn’t the intended target and wasn’t perceived as the threat in the situation, why did Officer Aledda handcuff him as he bled on the pavement?

A second police officer at the scene, Cmdr. Emile Hollant, has been suspended without pay for giving “conflicting statements” (read: lying) about the events surrounding the shooting.

Officer Aleda has been placed on administrative leave, but protesters have demanded his firing and are also demanding criminal charges be brought against him.
