Yes, It Goes Deeper Than Training, Police Shooting Arnaldo Rios Soto Interview with Matthew Dietz, Attorney for the Family of Arnaldo Rios Soto
I watched the police shoot another black man, while aiming at an autistic man of color. You’ve probably seen it on Google. I watched it as a Black disabled activist that has reported on police brutality cases since the late 80’s. I watched them shoot Charles Kinsey as he tried to calm down Arnaldo Eliud Rios Soto as he held a small toy truck in his hands. The neighbors assumed the toy truck was a gun and called the police. The police came. Shoot the black social worker on the scene, and said they meant to hit the autistic man with the toy.
