This is what’s wrong with “OUR” system!
On July 6, 2016, Officer Jeronimo Yanez quickly and inappropriately overreacted, killing a man who was calm and compliant during a routine traffic stop for an inactive brake light in St. Anthony, Minnesota. The officer’s actions caused the unnecessary death of Philando Castile, which occurred in front of his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year old daughter. Ms. Reynolds almost immediately started streaming the aftermath on Facebook Live.
Officer Yanez has since been charged and tried in court for discharging his service weapon and causing Mr. Castile’s death. The verdict of NOT GUILTY was delivered four days ago and has only increased the discord between the police and the communities they have sworn to “protect and serve”.
Please watch the video, then read the article from ABC News and decide for yourself! How did this come back as a NOT GUILTY verdict? How is this justice? Ask yourself who’s system this really is!
