Officer Shot Philando Castile While Wearing

"I can't believe this".

Frankly, I am mystified as to how anyone can strongly question the not guilty verdict here. "What do I pay fees for if you do not represent gun owners and our rights?" one wrote on the group's Facebook page.

A video-analysis expert hired by prosecutors said his frame-by-frame review of the former officer's body camera video showed Tensing was not being dragged by the vehicle. "Now you may have seen something different, but I'm speaking for what I saw, and for what people who I am in contact with and who we represent, what we saw". It just- it broke me.

"It's OK, I'm right here with you", her young daughter replied, hugging her briefly before kneeling on the floor of the police vehicle. Somehow, some way, and it may take years - probably more years than I left on this good earth - we need to change what goes through the mind of the American police officer in those seven seconds.

In his testimony, Mr Yanez said he "didn't want to shoot Mr. Castile", but that he thought he was "going to die". "The issue is always, 'Did the police act reasonably?'" It's very possible Yanez was indifferent about Philando's race. The video where a law-abiding man followed the officer's instructions to the letter of the law and was killed regardless.

That is what the mother of Philando Castile, Valerie Castile, said to the public June 16 when she learned about the verdict on Jeronimo Yanez.

In reality, the officer had been looking for an armed robbery suspect whose description he later said matched Castile's appearance.

"Right at the driver", Yanez said audibly choked up, "I had it right out, I had it pointed down". For years, for years, people said that there's a simple solution to police shootings: "Just give the police body cameras".

As described in a criminal complaint from Yanez's trial, the first moments of Castile's traffic stop ring true to Smith's experience as a black gun owner. Then on Wednesday, jurors acquitted a black police officer of first-degree reckless homicide in the killing of a black Milwaukee man who threw away the gun he was carrying during a brief foot chase after a traffic stop.

Castile responds, "I'm, I, I was reaching for", but before he finishes, Yanez, with right hand on his holster, says, "Don't pull it out".

Diamond Reynolds' daughter hugs her after the Philando Castile shooting. Yanez tells Castile he has a brake light out before asking for his paperwork.

We're getting a look at more of the case files and evidence from the Jeronimo Yanez trial, including items the jury didn't see and some heartbreaking comments from Diamond Reynolds' 4-year-old daughter.

"My phone just died and I have no way to contact family for rides."

She said the state did not prove that Yanez was being dishonest about seeing a gun.

"Police Lives Matter" of course is a bastardization of "Black Lives Matter", the phrase based on the idea that black lives in the United States have been disregarded to the point where society as a whole needs to be reminded that they do indeed matter.

"Hindsight is always 20-20 in everything we do in life, and it's really easy to second-guess that call, but we really don't know if it was anything of great import", said Marsh Halberg, another local defence attorney who was not involved in the case.
