Family Of Arnaldo Rios-Soto Sues City Of Miami
The family of an extremely autistic man whose unarmed caretaker was shot with his hands up is filing a lawsuit.
According to The Miami Herald, the family of Arnaldo Rios wants justice after they say he was “falsely imprisoned”, and inflicted with “pain and suffering” after his therapist Charles Kinsey was shot.
The shooting that was caught on tape sparked outrage, and Officer Jonathan Aledda, the one who shot Kinsey, was charged with felony manslaughter.
According to the publication, the lawsuit adds that Rios who has an IQ of 40 was not only battered and assaulted by police who placed him in handcuffs simply for playing with a silver toy truck but was Officer Aledda’s intended target when he fired three rounds from his rifle.
The president of the union representing the officers being sued called the lawsuit “flippant.”
Well we hope this “flippant” lawsuit sticks and the officers are held accountable for their actions that day.
