Confirmed – Philando Castile Was an Armed Robbery Suspect – False Media Narrative Now Driving Cop Killings…

The Falcon Heights, Minnesota police shooting of Philando Castile is based around an entirely false narrative.  Castile and Ms. Diamond Reynolds (Facebook video uploader) were pulled over by police because Castile matched a BOLO Alert for an armed robbery suspect from four days prior.

Unfortunately, the false statements in the video – which have gone viral, and are being pushed by the mainstream media – have created a backlash against police officers.

Police officers in: Dallas (link), Tennessee (link), Missouri (link) and Georgia (link) have been Shot or killed in the past 24 hours as a result of a false narrative driven by the Black Lives Matter movement. It is important to get the truth out quickly.

Saint Anthony, MN, Police Officers Jeronimo Yanez and Joseph Kauser pulled over Mr. Castile and Ms. Reynolds because the driver, Philando Castile, matched the suspect profile in an armed robbery which occurred on July 2nd, at a convenience store, only a few blocks from where their car was pulled over.

The armed robbery occurred on July 2nd 7:30pm (Sat).  The CCTV images were given to media and LEO by detectives on July 5th (Tuesday).  A BOLO (Be On Look Out) alert was issued the same day, Tuesday July 5th.  Philando Castile was pulled over on July 6th.

From the radio dispatch of Officer Jeronimo Yanez:

I’m going to stop a car. I’m going to check IDs.  I have reason to pull it over.”

The two occupants just look like people that were involved in a robbery. The driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ‘cause of the wide set nose.” 

A minute and a half later, the recording captures the first report that there was a shooting. (link)

mn shooting 5Ms. Diamond Reynolds narrates the now viral Facebook video with several false statements.

Reynolds claimed they were pulled over for a broken tail light, false.

Ms. Reynolds also claims her boyfriend, Castile, was holding a concealed carry permit for a firearm that was resting on his left thigh.  This also appears to be false.

According to a question presented to the local county sheriff who oversees the Concealed Carry Permit process, Mr. Castile had never requested a concealed carry permit from their office:

mn shooting 16

It is possible a CCP was obtained in another county, however the media are conflating “permit to purchase” with “concealed carry permit”.  For some reason the CCP ownership is being amplified; it really has no bearing and is largely irrelevant for the context of the situation.  That said, there is no factual evidence Mr. Philando Castile had a CCP.

Due to the rear facing camera option on the phone Ms. Reynolds was using, the uploaded video everyone has seen is a reversed mirror image – making it appear she was in the drivers side, and Castile was on the passenger side.  However, that impression is incorrect, Castile was driving the vehicle.  The uploaded image is reversed by Facebook Livestream Video.

However, correcting the mirror image, in part of the video it is possible to see a hand gun located on the thigh of Philando Castile.  This also appears to be why Officer Yanez repeats to Ms. Reynolds not to reach toward her boyfriend:

mn shooting 19

This hand gun also appears to be the same type of hand gun used in the Convenience Store Armed robbery four days earlier (7/2/16):

suspect MN 1

suspect MN 4

In addition, Mr. Castile also matched the physical description of the suspect as given by eye witnesses:

[…]  The other suspect was described as a black man with shoulder-length dreadlocks, who wore tan pants, tan shoes with white soles, a green jacket, a green baseball cap and glasses, the release says. He also had some of his hair pulled into a bun through the strap on the back of his hat and had a small mustache and facial hair on his chin. (link)

Similar clothes as noted on the robbery suspect are also noted in the Facebook images of Mr. Castile.  However, whether Mr. Castile is actually the person who committed the armed robbery is -again- essentially a moot point.  Officer Jeronimo Yanez gave the reason for the stop over the radio to his dispatcher as a possible ID on an “armed robbery suspect”:

“I’m going to stop a car. I’m going to check IDs.  I have reason to pull it over.”

“The two occupants just look like people that were involved in a robbery. The driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ‘cause of the wide set nose.”

(link) SIDE NOTE from the BOLO article:  “According to a press release from the St. Anthony Police Department, which contracts for police service in Lauderdale, the two robbed the Super USA store in the 2400 block of Larpenteur Avenue around 7:30 p.m., taking cash from the register and cartons of Newport cigarettes.”

(Above is a screen grab still frame image of Diamond “Aka Lavish” Reynolds during a press conference early morning 07/07/16 –  link at 09:45)

It is with that “armed robbery suspect perspective” the approach toward the vehicle was made by officers Yanez and Kauser.

Mr. Castile, fitting the physical description, being in the same geography, generally matching the BOLO CCTV image, and then having a handgun on his thigh only made the suspicions gain exponential weight.

Any behaviors or sudden movements by Mr. Castile would only increase the anxiety and increase the officer’s perception of Castile as a threat.

truth

Given that police around the country are being targeted based on an entirely false premise, it is critical the truth behind the entire incident be revealed with the same veracity as the MSM narrative.   Unfortunately, lies travel around the world twice – before the truth even has time to put its boots on.

update-1Update: Having outlined the factual reason/intent for the St. Anthony officers Yanez and Kauser to initially pull over Mr. Castile and Ms. Reynolds, it should also be pointed out the timing of Diamond Reynold beginning her Live Stream Video.

As you can tell from the video she uploaded, her four year old daughter was NOT in the vehicle when Ms. Reynolds began broadcasting.  Whether her daughter was factually inside the vehicle when the shooting took place is unknown, Ms. Reynolds has never claimed that to be the case.

What is known is there was no activity to remove the child from when the video began uploading (Facebook), to when you see her daughter in the arms of an officer when Ms. Reynolds exits the vehicle (continuously live streaming).

In essence, there is a lot of time not captured between the stop, the shooting, and when Ms. Reynolds begins using her phone to broadcast the post shooting events.  [ There is footage from Yanez and Kauser’s dash-cam which should clarify this missing timeline ] Ms. Reynolds begins broadcasting AFTER her daughter was removed from the vehicle (video below for reference):

Lastly, it appears the family circle around Philando Castile is moving quickly to raise funds from the event.  There are currently at least THREE Go-Fund-Me Donation, accounts set up by entities within the familial circle, currently running to raise money:

mn shooting - diamond reynolds

♦ Lavish “Diamond” Reynolds has raised $16,564 so far with a goal of $50,000

♦ The “Family” has raised $149,720 so far, exceeding their goal of $100,000.

♦ Big Sister “Allysza” has raised $55,866 so far, with a goal of $80,000.

GRAND TOTAL $222,150 raised under various Philando Castile Go-Fund-Me Accounts.

    Another problem with the story —

    At 1:28 in Reynold’s video, the little girl is not in the backseat, but being held by a police officer outside on the sidewalk.

    How and when did this happen?

      Probably when the cops realized that the guy was going to resist and they had to draw their guns in order to sort stuff out. Risked their own lives to make sure the kid was out of the line of fire in case the stupid ape kept resisting. That’s the kind of heroism that blacks are served by daily and they s hit on it.

          I believe sensationalism always sells more than any other emotion. Which will increase media viewership–the image of a police shooting an active shooter or the image of a police shooting an “unarmed” individual? I believe the image of police “brutality” will sell much more. The motivation is always to increase viewership. This is not a new motivation. That’s what drove the Spanish-American War and multiple other conflicts.

        Correct. We can observe what certainly appears to be a weapon in his lap.

        Most likely it was tucked into his crotch area for both concealment & easy access. Note that the position it came to rest at it is pointing at the window where the cop was standing.

        And audio snips in the video (“I told him not to reach for it…I told him to keep his hands up…”) kinda imply he actually placed his hand on it at some point following the GF admission that the Officer ordered them to “put their hands up….”

        And the GF claims he reached back to get his ID? Fairly substantial distance, as well as definition, between his crotch & his back pocket.

        Totally inconsistent rationale for his hand to be moving toward one direction for a weapon (his crotch) verses another direction for ID (his back pocket)…

          Agreed. It might be the officer at the passenger side was attending to the child at the monent of the shooting & the officer who shot now has somewhat less control over keeping both of them at bay & at gunpoint.

          The suspect is still moving about with the weapon just inches from his hands & the GF is within arms reach of the weapon.We dont see any video of the suspect’s lap after that point but it is reasonable to assume that the other officer immediately secured the GF at gunpoint & the shooting officer then retrieved the weapon.

          We hear her responding to commands but don’t yet know which of the officer’s was issuing those commands. While she is on video she is not making head motions to assertain which officer she is responding to. Could have been the partner of the shooting officer.

            Would another officer open the car door and take the child out before the adults in the front were secured? Since this was a possible armed robber, wouldn’t the police approach the car with their guns drawn? I just can’t imagine when the little girl was taken out of the car.

            I have been assuming that Reynolds was answering the PO on the driver’s side, the one holding the gun. I thought she looked his way when she spoke, but I’ll look again.

              I would believe that being at gun point & ordered not to move might be consiered “secured” at the instant. At least secure enough to quickly open the rear door & hustle the child out of harms way.

              I can’t read minds but I would assume that the removal of the child indicates that the Officers believed there was a potentially dangerous situation brewing….& of course, one less person present to institute movement or have to maintain eye contact with.

              Just my best guess at this point but certainly reasonable.

              And yep..the dash cam will resolve many questions of when specific actions did indeed occur.

    I’ve always thought Castile looks more like suspect USA1, as in lucid’s comparison (photo and link below). Based largely on the shoes – the size and shape of the feet are very similar and looks like a dark shoe with a lighter “U-band” around the top near the laces. Those are very narrow-looking feet with similar rounded toe shape to the shoe. Small feet in proportion to the legs and rest of the body (although there may be some far-distance-looks-much-smaller from the wide-angle-lens-effect in both security cam and smartphone photos – not quite fisheye but similar effect, just not as extreme as fisheye.

                  I checked that angle out. The most incriminating would be a unique Tax Stamp. But the uniqueness of the stamp applies to the distributor or jobber that supplies the product to the retailer & not to the retailer that sold the product.

                  So it could be narrowed down to a territory that a distributor or jobber supplies, but that would encompass many, many retailers that USA stores could be 1 of ….

                  Circumstantial at best.

            oh yeah, now I’ve convinced myself even more. right click that plaid-shirt photo above and “open in new tab”. click it once to enlarge, it’s a pretty big photo already. then zoom to 150% or 200%. one can clearly see a light-gray (maybe white) U-band around the top of the foot as a laces reinforcement or visual accent. I could download the photo and play lightening-up games, maybe I’ll do that later but hardly need to.

            then do the same with the well-lit photo immediately above where he’s strolling through the store past the counter and candy racks. it’s a much lower-res photo so you can’t see detail as well, but I can convince myself I see a similar light-colored U-band around the laces.

            that plus what looks to me like a fairly distinctive “narrow-rounded” toe to the shoe.

            I think he’s pinned to the store by those damn shoes, I really do.

                  looks like a hi-top lace-up shoe of some sort, that U-band on top is usually a hiking-boot aesthetic that goes way back. there was one particular brand popular in the 70s, Vasque, I think. serious, stiff hiking boots. can’t recall if they had this aesthetic but I’ve seen it on other brands if not. with hiking boots usually it’s a black accent on a brown boot.

                  these are likely a softer, modern boot with similar aesthetics. maybe expensive, maybe cheap. the fashions change often – various basketball shoes get popular, old-Nike-styles were all the rage 10 or 15 years ago. maybe this is a popular style now, if anyone knows how to browse lots of shoe images quickly and efficiently.

              One thing I notice is USA1 seems to be left handed. The strap bag over the right shoulder with the bag to the left & the carrying of the smokes in the left hand.

              Wonder if Castile is left handed? Going back to the shooting video, it is somewhat conclusive, in my mind anyway, that he had to have exposed his left torso significantly when he was shot. The blood pattern from the bleed out is significantly under the arm & flowing in the direction he is slumped. It appears to me that he was predominantly hit in the left side torso below the armpit area.

              IMO, for that to occure, either his left arm had to be raised very high or his left arm had to be pulled far back to the rear exposing the upper left torso….Like he was reaching towards his LEFT rear pocket as if to produce ID while his right hand was going for the weapon in the crotch area?

              A move like that would give him a slight advantage in hiding the action of getting the weapon because his upper torso would be leaning slightly forard & to the right,, obscuring the view of the crotch area & the right hand from the officer.

              Remember, the GF makes a big deal of him reaching to his RIGHT rear pocket for a “thick” wallet…..A move of that nature would have put his left upper torso much lower & downward. It would have been far more protected from the shots than is shown in the video.

      I’ve always thought Castile looks more like suspect USA1, as in lucid’s comparison (photo and link below). Based largely on the shoes – the size and shape of the feet are very similar and looks like a dark shoe with a lighter “U-band” around the top near the laces.

      I think I agree with you Nim. Personally those look the same shoes in the above comparison. Light angles make them look exactly alike. Look a little different with the light in the photo in the front of the store, but the same with the light when in the office

      rumpole2 and stobberdobber, you’ve got mail

      Preface this with a statement that it’s not really germane to the BOLO stop and shooting whether or not Castile was an actual robber, it’s sufficient that he resembled descriptions of the robbers for the BOLO stop to have proceeded, as several commenters have pointed out, esp Bull Durham.

      I had thought that the shoes of robber USA1 resembled those of Castile in the plaid shirt photo.

      I went back to original source photos for best resolution (Castile’s facebook page for plaid shirt photo, the “Riding Dirty treehouse thread for the robbery photos).

      Did some careful lightening up of photos in Windows Photo Manager, using only the “midtone” control. Right-click open-in-new-tab, click once in case they’ll self-enlarge, and from there zoom in further if you wish with your browser’s zoom control.

      The plaid shirt photo reveals what look like red diagonal stripes on the side, I think rumpole mentioned stripes that he wanted to discuss.

      What I had been calling a white or light U-band on top of shoe around the laces, like on many popular hiking-boot style shoes now looks not to be white at all. I suspect it is a shiny vinyl accent, maybe black, that reflects light much better than surrounding material, which may be heavy cloth, nylon cloth, whatever. So far, so good. I’ve improved slightly my ability to view those shoes.

      But I can’t convincingly match the shoes to the robbery photos. In the “back door” photo, there is what looks like a red reflection on the top of the shoes, and the narrow-rounded toe of the shoe does resemble the shoes in the plaid shirt photo. The red reflections are a bit of a puzzle, but note that there are all sorts of little colored artifacts in the photo, probably a function of the coarse imaging by the security cameras. Probably digital, and it looks like there are a myriad of color-value mis-assignments from pixel to pixel, maybe groups of pixels, I dunno. If there is a red light up on the wall, like an exit light, perhaps that’s a real red reflection off the shoes, similar to the light-ish reflection in the plaid shirt photo. Maybe these red reflections or highlights at a minimum suggest something reflective on top of the shoe, like the (presumed vinyl) U-band I’ve talked about.

      In the front-counter photo, there does appear to be a light-ish U-band or accent on the top of the shoe. But the resolution of the photo is a bit too coarse to examine closely. But, again, at least it looks like there is some kind of reflecting material.

      So with that I’ll end my attempts to make much out of the shoes.

      Yet, MSM continues to have guest commentators, (mostly Black “experts “I might add) that attest to the racist evidence the video contains when in fact there is no evidence beyond the fact that Castile was shot for reasons yet to be uncovered.

      “He was assainated….he was executed….the Police are Racist….another innocent Black man dies at the hands of the Police….this would not have happened if the occupanys were White…all over a broken tail light…..White cop kills yet another Black man….” and on & on….

      Skin color, like height, is part of the physical constitution that is determined by one’s heredity. As you claim, some who have mixed race but look black identify themselves black. The other component of a person is the behavior. If you look black and act black, exhibiting all or most of the characteristic behaviors associated with blacks, others are justified in judging you black or African American. (A corollary is if you look black and act white, other blacks judge you a sellout or an uncle Tom and you may suffer at their hands for it.) Blacks, in general, have a number of harmful, undesirable behaviors, whether it be determined genetically or culturally. One’s physical traits usually are unalterable. But what about one’s behavior? Is that changeable?

      To the question should one be judged individually or by association, it seems to me that when it comes to blacks, a discriminator is damned either way. Judging an individual as a group I believe is wrong. But if you judge a person who is black as behaving badly, and if you are not black, you run the risk of being attacked as a racist, even if the black is actually behaving badly. The black being judged often resorts to the race card as a defense. You risk being blamed for judging the black person because he is black. It devolves into a circular argument.

      The situation is very similar to the Moslem problem we are dealing with today. It is said that there are good Moslems and there are bad ones. Yet when you criticize the bad ones, the “good” ones come to their defense, or they say the bad ones are not really Moslems. If blacks want to be judged individually, they need to stop banding together like a tribe when a black is confronted for his bad behavior and to work to eliminate the bad behavior of those among them.

    So after convincing myself on USA1’s shoes, I think I can equally un-convince myself that neither USA1 nor USA2 matches Castile on facial hair.

    Castile in bloody photo has thick chin goatee, what looks like a sparser or new-growth band running all the way along / slightly under jaw line, up sideburn to temple. Mustache is droops down to connect with goatee in fu Manchu style, though it’s sparse / faint / narrow.

    USA1 has bold chin goatee mostly at and under chin, with bold extension that runs halfway along jaw line towards rear jaw, clean shaven the rest of the way. Bold mustache that does not connect to jaw line / goatee, about an inch gap.

    USA2 has chin hair mostly under chin line, sparser mustache that again does not connect to jaw line. Chin hair doesn’t look like it extends to the rear jaw at all, unless it’s under jaw line and camera up high doesn’t let it be visible (I know I’m re-treading old ground but just want to complete my thoughts before backtracking to find the older discussion). Even if chin hair does extend under jaw line, it clearly does not then go up thru sideburn to temple like in Castile bloody photo.

    Sep 2 robbery to Sep 6 shooting leaves only 4 days, I don’t think enough time for beard to fill in from clean shaven to what we see in Castile bloody photo.

    So I don’t think I can match Castile to either of the 2 robbers on facial hair. Maybe that conclusion was already reached and I’ll look later, but I gotta hit the hay.

    The situation is getting out of hand. A large number of hyphenated Americans is farce with a big chip on their shoulders ending in violence, attacks and murder beginning with the Trayvon case and accelerated ever since. This case also is almost a replay of the Brown in many ways. The call of ‘hands up – don’t shoot’ is still making the rounds among the ‘black caucus”! Beginning at with the top of our current administration and while Holder still the DOJ – it has taken on proportions that singled out our ‘white’ police officers accusing them of targeting black Americans as victims in police shootings. The acceleration has not abated and rather increased in ferocity. It was not only white police officers but also the ‘knockout game’ causing the lives of white and innocent Americans. Let’s call a spade a spade: white people in this moment in time are sought out as though they are responsible for the every black Americans plight. facts and proof be damned! “White guilt is the slogan” – and white people have to pay for their imagined crimes! Thinking about Marilyn Mosby among a host of others is the most recent example of personal racial animosity to use the power of her position to attempt to ‘pay back whitey’ as a tool to satisfy the rioters, looters and protesters in that city Together with her the mayor of that city – Rawlings – they approved, encouraged and endorsed the violence of the mob. We know how that ended.
    When a president who suppose to represent ‘All’ people singles out white Americans for ridicule, accusations, judgment and predators based on his own chip on his shoulder as well as that of his wife – the assassinations and life threatening wounded police officers in Dallas become self explanatory. White Americans are the target of further harm and murder that will escalade during this summer. It is by intent1
    Sadly – I do not say that lightly – electing this president twice was the biggest mistake the electorate made!

      Because the furious anger in the black community over this shooting is fueled by the media and Obama running with the narrative of “innocent black man murdered by police for broken taillight.” If they had waited for the facts and it turns out he was an armed robber shot by police as he went for his gun, people aren’t going to be nearly so angry over that. Perhaps with that narrative the Dallas shooter wouldn’t have done what he did.

      Nobody’s happy about Castile getting shot. We’re furious with the media, BLM, and Obama for screaming “cops are racist murderers,” fanning the flames of racial hatred when we still don’t have a statement from the police and do not have the facts yet.

      I read somewhere (probably here) there was a dash cam in the police vehicle, which may or may not provide additional evidence. I don’t expect a LEO, faced with a possible armed robber, who is currently armed, to stand around debating whether the action he needs to take to stay alive is “justified.” He’s the one whose life is potentially on the line, not me. And if I need help, I’ll be calling the cop, not the perp.

  20. Broadcast media can no longer be relied on to report facts. They each attempt to get the jump on each other by reporting whatever someone is telling them without any concern for actual facts. That is what has led to the prevalent thinking by LEO’s that it’s better to act first and ask questions later, if they expect to go home at shift end. We used to give benefit of the doubt to perp suspects, but with the now prevalent mentality on the streets that all ‘white cops’ are the enemy, ALL ‘cops’ are now much more apt to act on any potentially suspicious move or action.
    That’s not to say that there aren’t ‘bad apples’ among law enforcement, after all, people are all individuals, some more inclined to live and act with respect and honesty towards others, while many are not. Unfortunately, America has been more racially divided now than ever before in our history with the advent of ‘political correctness’. Sad!

    Let’s just remind ourselves that, according to police scanner reports, Mr. Philando Castile was pulled over by police in Falcon Heights, Minnesota specifically “because he had a wide set nose”. 90 seconds later he was dead. Actually, the size of Mr. Philando Castile’s nose had not been accurately assessed. It was his skin color that was assessed as he drove by the police officer. Frankly, this is disgusting and plays right into the hands of BLM.

      Of course his skin color was “assessed”. I don’t think we’d propose police ignore the parts of the description that say “black male, slender, dreadlocks, etc, etc.”

      Policeman may have mentioned the nose for a simple reason like it was pointed out in briefing, perhaps to distinguish one “black male, dreadlocks, etc, etc.” from the next “black male, dreadlocks, etc, etc.” … A distinguishing characteristic, in other words.

      I don’t think the reports from the robbery scene said “white, kinda pinkish hillbillies”.

      So I’d be expecting police to pull over “black males, slender, dreadlocks, etc, etc.”. I don’t find anything untoward about that.

      Larry, at the start of every shift there is a briefing where information about suspects is disseminated to all of that shift’s officers. For the most part, some of that information is not made public at the time, but the patrol officers use it in identifying a potential suspect. That may be the case in this situation. If, for instance, the briefing included a partial description of a vehicle not known previously, the patrol officer would be looking for any vehicles that were similar, coupled with any other info already known based on witnesses and/or CCTV footage.
      In this case, officers pulled over a vehicle that they suspected may be related, and in the dispatch transmission stated only a brief ’cause’, it’s more than likely that they were alert to the possibility of a confrontation with an armed suspect, which, in following law enforcement protocol, they approached the driver with guns drawn. That the driver was observed to have a gun on his lap, and made a movement that was perceived as being threatening, contrary to the officer’s orders, the officer seeing no immediate alternative did what he was taught to do. Whether that was exactly what happened, only an IA investigation can determine. If done properly, the investigation will rely on dash cam and/or other video/audio, witness testimony, forensics, and any other factors that may bear on the matter. Hopefully, politics, racism, media hype, and ‘political correctness’ will not come into play.

      The Stop of the car was because the cop had a “make” on the perp. The guy looked like the wanted felon, so the cop called in the Stop.

      Then what was said by whom to whom no one has any idea.

      The narrative of what went down is completely made up by the bitch on the video.

      He’s shot. He’s bleeding. The end.

      The cop on the video said he told him not to move.

      Am I missing something here?

      We have no facts of the interchange of cop and dead guy.

      The Stop, completely correct for the cop to stop the car.
      The Shooting, completely correct (from what we know which is damn little).

      We need an investigation (like Ferguson).

      The dead guy was stupid. He got himself shot because he wasn’t obeying a cop, made a move in the direction of his gun. Petty criminal dies from chronic life of crime and terminal stupidity.

      Sad. But if humans play the game of slow turtle on the Interstate, they become roadkill.

      As for beard, shoes, gun in holster, in pants, on lap, right guy from the store, whatever, it has no bearing on the shooting incident.

      Black men with guns, or other weapons, or who threaten or resist cops, just like White men doing the same or Latinos doing the same, or Asians or Native Americans or women or gays, or whatever, will be shot one or more times by one or more cops. That’s what happens in the USA. We give the cops the right to defend us and themselves from threats of such a nature. More Blacks do these stupid things. More Blacks will continue to do these things. It happens due to stupidity and ignorance and racial privilege (Black privilege granted by Liberalism that encourages ignorance and poverty in Black communities.)

      As I’ve said many times, Black men are not shot inside Libraries and study halls. They are usually just coming from a drug buy, a holdup, a physical confrontation and reports by Blacks in the community that they are a threat. The cops are doing their duty and a tragic intersection of the Law with Stupidity results.

      Especially, in recent years, all these cops understand that their actions are on video. They are on cameras they wear, a camera in the patrol car, a camera on the scene, a camera in a house or apartment. The cops are just doing what they are forced to do. They choose deadly force because they are trained to.

      And now, these cops are usually doing what they must despite the understanding that their career is probably going to be over. They do the right thing anyway.

      It’s damn sad. But it begins and ends with Black Lives Don’t Matter to Black Communities producing stupid Black men, and Liberal Leaders who could care less about Black men being uneducated, drug-infested, leading a violent criminal lifestyle.

      Black men will not be shot by cops when they stop being stupid Black men living a stupid Black life of crime and ignorance.

      Notice how none of the Black men in recent years in these deadly incidents were educated, professional, law-abiding. Nearly all were marginal and uneducated and criminal. That’s the nexus. The cops are called to deal with them. Called by Blacks to end a menace. Sometimes it turns violent.

      I don’t know the laws where he got his permit, but I had to swear I did not take illegal drugs when I got mine in Kansas. If it is similar there, then he did not have a valid carry permit, he had a fraudulent carry permit.

      ok, I will bite. Conservative types support the rule of law. Period. The law says you can’t own certain firearms if you are a convicted criminal. I do not support the right of any man or woman to legally possess a concealed firearm (or unconcealed for that matter) if they do not legally qualify. Our “cry” has always been to enforce the laws on the books and the country would need no further gun laws. Or we can have a civil war.

      We question whether or not Philando was a LEGAL gun owner/carrier. And you have to admit, it was a really bad idea for him to reach for it or pull it out when the cop was talking to him. Stupid stupid stupid move, great way to commit suicide. Got it?

      True story. One of the first cases I ever had was a slip and fall involving a black woman in the Philly area. I took her deposition in her attorney’s (very small) office while she chain smoked Newports and told me what happened, as follows: She was living with her current husband and disabled ex-husband (think benefits). They got up on a Saturday morning and watched Soul Train until the package goods store opened. Then they went to get some 40’s. They came home and drank them, then went to get some fried chicken for lunch for themselves and all the kids. She slipped and fell in the restroom of the KFC. Does repeating her deposition make me a racist? lol

    If you watch the original video, 1. the girlfriend states they ask her boyfriend for his license and registration. 2. Why would they ask a passenger for his registration? Because he was driving. 3. After the boyfriend says that he is armed and has a concealed carry permit, officers would not ask for ID. They would tell him not to reach for anything and then try to disarm the man. Where did he get this supposed CCP? 4. The officer’s safety outweighs anything else with a traffic stop. 5. The video doesn’t start until after the man was shot (how convenient). 6. The officer even states that he asked the boyfriend not to reach for anything, which is what they are supposed to do when they are aware that someone is armed. 7. The girlfriend is trying to bait people into hating all cops for an action of one officer (which could’ve just done what he’s trained to do in this situation). 8. With this mentality, wouldn’t we say that all blacks are killing other blacks? That’s not the case. If you look at the FBI’s website, that’s what the statistics are on murder of blacks. The statistics don’t lie. So, Black Lives Matter except to other blacks. This mentality is what’s wrong with the BLM ignorance. Now BLM are stating that by saying All Lives Matter is being racist. Smdh. Sorry but this subject is just on my nerves and some BLM ignorant members are actually saying the officers in Dallas and other cities deserved to die. Look all this up. It’s all true. Forgive me for ranting. –Chris

      A friend of ours–husband and wife–were stopped for some moving violation. When the officer approached the husband (driver), the husband informed the officer he had a CCP and that he had 2 Glocks in the glove box. The officer asked both to exit the car, which they did, and were searched and the guns were observed. The radio information confirmed their identity and right to carry concealed weapons. The officer thanked them and sent them on their way. Of course, they were white, law-abiding citiziens, not members of the Crips with prior arrests and such like our friend and his pot smoking, foul-mouthed gun moll.

        That is the same as my experience with a state trooper in TX. I told him there were firearms in the car (I was on the way to my deer lease) and he asked where they were, what they were and if they were loaded. I then had to exit the car and wait at his cruiser till he verified the weapons.
        All the time I was in my car I had my hands on the wheel and was polite to him.

    Have read many words, here and elsewhere, and these are best facts I’ve seen. But, I still see a vet suicide in Dallas, suicide by cop. And a gang killing in MN, by the female. All engineered and manipulated by our politicians and media, all of whom are above our laws. Clinton betrayal is forgotten, narrative changed, politicians escape notice and scrutiny again.

And you can clearly hear that the police officer was upset you can hear the trembling in his voice like he was crying. You could tell he wasn’t happy about what he felt like he had to do God bless all that was involved in Jesus name amen

    Its being reported that the Dallas shooter, Micah Xavier Johnson, had done alot of research and had obviously planned and prepared for this attack. My question is, how did he know he would have the opportunity of a BLM protest near his hometown to carry this out? In other words, how did he prepare for something that was a spontaneous event?

    There is something very strange about this supposed fiance. She is not on Philando Castile’s facebook and he is not on any of her (many) facebook accounts. She seems obsessed with her own pictures/videos and has several different facebook accounts – I’m wondering if she even comments on her own account using various names. The video of her smoking weed with her daughter in the backseat is upsetting – I’m wondering if Social Services has ever looked into the care/safety of her daughter. She does not appear to be “friends” with any family members of Philando Castile on her accounts. There is a “Papi” Reynolds who may be the father of her child. Here are some of the facebook accounts “attached” to her:

I wish I could recall which of his race, IQ, and crime videos it was, but he’s done several – and they’re all really, really good. Highly recommend. 🙂
