Another police shooting acquittal worries black gun owners

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 03:59

But he'd also been stopped by police more than 50 times, mostly for minor traffic stops like the broken taillight he was stopped for before he was killed.

After the officer was cleared of any wrongdoing, protesters took to the streets demanding justice for minorities, shouting "stand up, fight back".

The verdict drew an angry reaction from Mr Castile's mother.

February 11: Castile's mother, Valerie Castile, unveils a temporary memorial at the site of her son's shooting. Yes, I am. My first-born son died. These two decisions create an atmosphere where police violence is sanctioned based on what we think a hypothetical officer could have felt, even if, in reality, the officer was acting recklessly, had ill motives or was acting based on implicit bias. "But nevertheless the system continues to fail black people", she said.

An estimated 2,000 people were on the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota on June 17, shedding tears in peaceful protest of the Castile trial.

Yanez said he acted because he feared for his life and believed Castile was reaching for a gun.


Castile's death was one of several killings of black men by police officers that garnered national attention and sparked protests. When they get done with us, they're coming for you, for you, for you, and all your interracial children. Signs reading "Unite for Philando" and "Justice Not Served for Philando" could be seen; chants of "No justice, no peace, prosecute the police" were heard during the largely peaceful protest.

Questioned by his defense attorney during the trial, Yanez said: "I was scared to death".

"Justice was done", Gray told Reuters by telephone. "It was very, very hard", Ploussard said, adding that he thought the jury delivered the right verdict. Yanez was innocent. He was just doing his job'. Yanez was immediately pushed to resign from the St. Paul Police Department via a voluntary separation agreement.

The video begins with the girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, in the passenger seat as Castile, covered in blood, sits in the driver's seat and a patrolman points his gun into the vehicle. During the exchange, Castile told Yanez that he had a firearm on him at the time.

The jury cleared the policeman of second degree manslaughter and two counts of felony of intentional discharge of a risky weapon for endangering the safety of Ms Reynolds and her four-year-old daughter. The video showed blood oozing through Castile's shirt as he appeared to lose consciousness. And it is disgraceful that the law will allow the simple act of reaching for your identification when asked by police could be your last.

September 28: The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says it has completed its investigation and turned over its findings to Choi. Had he been convicted, Yanez would have faced 10 years in prison.
