Minnesota Police Officer Found Not Guilty In Shooting Death Of Philando Castile

quote [ The incident drew national attention when Reynolds started live-streaming the immediate aftermath of the exchange on Facebook, as Castile lay dying and her daughter sat in the back seat. ]

Sadly unsurprising. As long as police aren't held accountable these kinds of murders will continue.

You should learn what murder means before using it in public.

Or become a police officer. Apparently, then you get to use murder in public all you want.

I'm assuming you didn't see the video. This man was shot several times at close range for no good reason. Sure looks like murder to me.

Well that seems like an excellent way to win the hearts and minds of the 500 students he worked for at the school. How are you expected to trust police if you grow up seeing this? What do I tell my 3 year old son?

...or black.
Castile was not a criminal. He got stopped, and ultimately killed for a broken taillight.

Go ahead and name another reason why Philando Castile was murdered.

Yes, people bust their own taillights and drive around town, hoping to get pulled over so maybe they can record themselves getting shot on the off chance they can inconvenience a pig over it.

What fucking planet are you from?
