Twitter Reacts To Philando Castile Shooting Verdict That Acquitted Officer Jeronimo Yanez

Acilia Dean | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:59

St Anthony Police Department officer Jeronimo Yanez, of Minnesota, who testified that he feared for his life when he fatally shot Philando Castile last July, was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter.

It was on July 6, 2016 when Jeronimo Yanez pulled over Philando Castile in a vehicle alongside his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter, Dae'Anna.

As Castile's mother, Valerie Castile, said after the verdict was announced, "The system continues to fail black people, and it will continue to fail you all". Valerie Castile denounced the unanimous jury decision and declared, "The system continues to fail black people, and it will continue to fail you all". "When they get done with us, they coming for you, for you, for you and all your interracial children".

Yanez, who is Latino, testified that Castile disregarded his commands not to pull out the gun and that he feared for his life.

The finding was in line with recent history showing trials of police officers often end in non-convictions - almost 40 percent of the time for those that Philip Stinson, a criminologist at Ohio's Bowling Green State University, has tracked since 2005.

"He didn't deserve to die the way he did", Philando Castile's sister, Allysza, said, through tears.

Wiley added: "I can not stop crying for you, Philando", and Aduba wrote: "Truth lies somewhere here: until we value & speak for the lives of all people, we remain hinged to this chapter of history". Defense attorneys claimed Yanez felt that his life was in danger and shot Castile after he told the officer he was armed.

After the verdict Friday afternoon, Yanez was sacked by the city of St. Anthony.


"I don't think this was a fair jury at all, made up of more than half middle-aged white people", she said.

"Miss Monique", who says she's a victim of police brutality in Saint Paul, told the crowd they occupied the Fourth Precinct and the Governor's Mansion, shut down I-94 and then went to the courthouse. A peaceful march followed, with some protesters blocking Interstate 94, one of the main corridors between the Twin Cities. Protesters and family members of Philando Castile gather outside the state Capitol in St. Paul, Minn., Friday June 16, 2017. There were two additional felony counts against Yanez for firing his weapon intentionally.

The protestors joined arms and blocked the parade, explaining that they wanted seven minutes of silence - one minute for each bullet that Yanez shot at Castile.

But nothing is clear cut when it comes to guns and race in the United States, said Nicholas Johnson, who lectures on both at Fordham Law School, and wrote a book called "Negroes and the Gun", and is a black gun owner. Castile's girlfirend, Diamond Reynolds, was in the vehicle at the time and began live-streaming the event in the moments after the shots were fired.

Despite the existence of video taken by Castile's girlfriend, who sat next to him in the auto when he was killed, the justice system has again failed to hold the person who pulled the trigger accountable. "It's a sad state of affairs when this type of criminal conduct is condoned simply because Yanez is a policeman", Reynolds said.

Of some small consolation is the fact that Yanez will be transitioned out of the plice force, according to a statement from the city of St. Anthony.

Yanez thought Castile fit the description of a robbery suspect and was reaching for a gun. Prosecutors said Castile's last words were: "I wasn't reaching for it".
