Where is Trump? Philando Castile's Family Wants President To Intervene

19 June 2017

Protesters and family members of Philando Castile gather outside the state Capitol in St. Paul, Minn., Friday June 16, 2017.

"The City of St. Anthony has concluded that the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city", it said in a statement. The officer ordered Castile not to draw it out, with Castile repeatedly saying he was not reaching for it. Yanez shot him seven times, claiming he feared for his safety. However, before Castile could complete his sentence, Yanez pulled out his gun and said: "Don't pull it out".

Reynolds pulled out her cellphone and began live-streaming the shooting's aftermath on Facebook as Castile bled to death.

"Like I said, because this happened with Philando, and when they get done with us, they are coming for you and all your interracial children".

The shooting gained particular outrage, both for the nature of what happened but also the video that surfaced - taken by Castile's girlfriend - within the vehicle. He said the jury sympathizes with the Castile family.

"I'm never happy when people are on the freeway, but the fact of the matter is no one was injured", Coleman said.
