Not Surprising: Police Officer That Murdered Philando Castile Found 'Not Guilty'

Yanez protests continue with march on Hennepin

Yanez protests continue with march on Hennepin

Thousands of people took to the streets Friday to protest the not guilty verdict in the Philando Castile killing trial.

"T$3 here's no question that Colin Kaepernick is justified with his anger and disgust, considering the fact that Philando Castile, the police officer got away with a not guilty verdict considering he shot this guy in the vehicle when the guy wasn't a threat".

Philando Castile's mom isn't happy at all that Jeronimo Yanez, the former officer who shot her son, was cleared of manslaughter charges against him.

He also praised George and Amal's choices for baby names. " Amal , who is Super Woman, she is just unbelievable ", he said . George , 56, and Amal , 39, announced the new arrivals with a statement by their spokesman on Tuesday ( 6 June).

The video shows Yanez following Castile's auto, then pulling it over. Rafowicz tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/2rNv0oP ) the children knew Castile as Mr. Phil and says he knew every student by name and would often give them "high fives" in the lunch line. Ms. Castile has been using social media to voice her frustrations over the matter, taking to Facebook Live to issue a message to cops which became a familiar refrain of late for the Black community.

While the video shows the shooting of Castile, who was black, it does not show what happened in the vehicle or what Yanez actually saw. The verdict drew outrage across the country, and Castile's mother Valerie reacted to the verdict in a powerful speech on the courthouse steps. "I'm mad as hell". "The system continues to fail black people, and it will continue to fail you all". "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way".
