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.

After five days of deliberation, the jury cleared Yanez of all charges, which included second-degree manslaughter and two lesser charges for endangering Reynolds and her young daughter, who was in the backseat.

There is shouting, and Yanez screams, "Don't pull it out!" before he fires seven shots into the vehicle, five of which hit Castile.

Castile was one of 1,092 people killed by police in 2016, Teresa Nelson, interim executive direction of the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota said.

Her video went viral, sparking protests both locally and nationally about police use of force, particularly against black men.

"People are waking up, even the older generation, those who felt like "No, we overcame" - now they see we didn't overcome", she said.

"He was trying to get out his ID and his wallet out of his pocket", Reynolds says.

The world learned of Philando Castile's death through a Facebook livestream launched by his girlfriend seconds after he was shot by a Minnesota police officer. Prosecutor John Choi said the acquittal was painful, but that the verdict "must be respected".

Castile had a license to carry a gun, but he hadn't told the officer that before the shooting took place. "But the next phase of this system - and our protesting - has to be economic", she said.

"I'm mad as hell right now".

The verdict had sparked outrage among many in the St. Paul area.

According to Columbus Police, four of the officers were injured while attempting to move the protestors.
