Trial begins for North Miami cop who shot unarmed caretaker who had hands up

Trial begins for North Miami cop who shot unarmed caretaker who had hands up MIAMI - Everyone agrees that North Miami police officers rushed to a busy intersection in July 2016 when a motorist called 911 to report a man with a shiny object, possibly a gun, in his hand. He was 26-year-old Arnaldo Rios, a severely disabled man who actually held a silver toy truck as he sat in the middle of the road. And there's no dispute that minutes later, North Miami Officer Jonathan Aledda shot three times at Rios, instead hitting the man's unarmed caretaker, Charles Kinsey, as he lay on the ground with his hands thrust in the air. It's everything in between that jurors will have to figure out.

The incident gained national attention after it was partially captured on a bystander's video.

Authorities said Kinsey was lying in the street with his arms upraised, begging police not to shoot.

"With a lot of power and authority also comes a lot of responsibility," Miami-Dade Chief Assistant State Attorney Don Horn told jurors during closing arguments Thursday. "The shots that Jonathan Aledda fired were not a misfire. Each shot was intentional while he was trying to kill Arnoldo Rios Soto. Each shot was unnecessary and unreasonable."

Prosecutors say Rios had left his nearby group home and sat down in the road to play with his toy. A motorist called 911, saying the man was holding what may be a gun and appeared suicidal. Kinsey was trying to coax him back into the home when police arrived and surrounded them.

Aledda, a trained SWAT member, fired, striking Kinsey in the leg.

Aledda's defense lawyer, Douglas Hartman, blamed faulty radios and poor supervision by the North Miami Police Department for the miscommunications that led to the shooting.

"He had a life-and-death situation. He thought without question that Mr. Kinsey was going to die, be shot and murdered," Hartman told the jury of five men and one woman.

Aledda is the first police officer charged with an on-duty shooting by Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, who took office in 1994.
