Paul Minnesota During Protests Of Philando Castile Shooting Verdict

Protesters overtook Interstate 94 on Friday (June 16), splitting off from the original meeting point at the state Capitol. More than 1,000 people gather that evening at the school where Castile worked, then hundreds walk back to the governor's residence.

As CNN writes, "The protests were expected". Yanez was charged with one count of second-degree manslaughter and two counts of reckless discharge of a firearm for killing Castile, 32.

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. In an incident that shocked the nation, Mr. Castile's girlfriend live-streamed the moments following the shooting on Facebook while sitting in the vehicle along with their four-year old daughter. Yanez shot Castile five times. And his mother, Valerie, has important things to say about this verdict. What is it going to take? "Ya'll are next", she said.

Open carry activist Phil Ector pointed out that many times police have come across black men that own guns illegally, which might poison their interaction with legal gun owners.

"It's a symbol of him looking down and saying he should be here, justice wasn't served", Iman said. "We need major reforms including making certain that lethal force is the last response, not the first response".

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed , on the other hand, felt his side lost the plot in the last overs of the Indian innings. Jadeja gathered the ball at point and threw in one movement, directly hitting the stumps with the batsman far away.

Rachel Paulose, a former U.S. Attorney, said that could be a hard-won case.

"It is unacceptable that communities must fear those that are sworn to protect them". The last words he spoke before expiring were, "I wasn't reaching for it". Many cars that were stopped by the protest turned around and went the wrong way on the freeway in both directions, seeking the nearest exits.

Authorities arrested 18 people during a protest of the acquittal of a suburban Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed a black driver. The case may have ended, but there is certainly still emotional fallout and outrage over the shooting of Philando Castile. Others include, Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., Eric Garner, who was held in a chokehold by police, and died in NY, and Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, who was shot by an officer in Ferguson, Mo.

"We can also know that the demonization of people who use drugs gives license to the trampling of their civil and human rights, and provides a climate of impunity for law enforcement and others who commit acts of unjustifiable violence".

"When an officers learns a black person is carrying legally, "they are not necessarily going to relax, but they now have an idea about your character", Ector said". "Collaboration, transparency, and communication between police and communities around the shared goals of equality, fairness, and public safety is the path forward".
