“Riding Dirty” The Curious Case of Philando Castile – Falcon Heights, MN Police Shooting…

listen_up_words_horizontal__clear_bkrd__4-14-08_mayv_kyjxMAJOR UPDATE BELOW:  In order to give the update context we are placing the update at the conclusion of the original outline.

By now everyone is aware of the officer involved shooting of Philando Castile that became a viral BLM activist case as a direct result of his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds (aka Lavish Reynolds) live-streaming the aftermath from their vehicle. – BACK STORY HERE

NOTE: It is critical to remember -as you review the images and the video- optically the live stream was captured as a mirror image.  Some video uploads mirror the image, it can be confusing, you have to reset your reference points. Philando Castile was driving, Diamond Reynolds was the passenger.

During the uploaded video narration Ms. Reynolds stated the police officer pulled them over for a broken tail light.

There are several aspects of the narrative as told that didn’t pass the sniff test, however, something about the “tail light” just didn’t seem to make sense. Especially when you consider it was daylight when they were pulled over; and where –in the aftermath media video– it can be noted the tail lights were operable.

Upon further evaluation something is missing.  We believe we have identified a very important missing element.

Was there another reason why the police officer would pull them over?

The shooting took place, late afternoon/early evening Wednesday July 6th. [ Remember that, and stay with me ].

The people at GotNews chased down the social media profiles of Diamond and Philando, and unfortunately a familiar set of social behaviors surfaces.

Yes, Philando Castile was a gang member (crips), frequently picturing himself with firearms, cash, drugs and gang signs; and Ms. Diamond also has a colorfully broadcasted social presence. – SEE HERE (<– lots of images)

The Philando Castile profile is, unfortunately, also typical of other high profile police encounter cases. A little research into recent community activity was warranted to see if anything has happened.

Four days before they were pulled over, and approximately four blocks from where the shooting took place, another firearm incident occurred. A Super USA Convenience Store was robbed at gunpoint at 7:30pm on Friday July 2nd. – SEE HERE

Accepting the administrative lag from the holiday weekend, the local police requested help from the public on Tuesday July 5thSEE HERE – by releasing CCTV video images of two armed black males who robbed the convenience store at gunpoint (emphasis mine):

(Local News) […] 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.

No employees were injured during the robbery said St. Anthony Police Chief Jon Mangseth.

St. Anthony police, with help from Roseville Police Department officers and St. Paul Police Department K9 officers, set up a perimeter around the store, Mangseth said, and briefly searched the area.

Mangseth said K9s tracked the suspects to a nearby apartment parking lot where the trail ended. He said it’s believed the men left the area in a vehicle from the parking lot. (link)

The media are then provided descriptions of the two male suspects.  We’ll call them USA1 and USA2 (the convenience store was USA).

Suspect USA1:  “Employees described one suspect to police as a black man with longer than shoulder-length dreadlocks, who wore blue jeans, a green plaid long-sleeved shirt, dark-color shoes with white highlights, glasses and a baseball cap printed with marijuana leaves, the release says. He may have had a mustache”. (link)

Suspect USA2:  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)

(Apologies for the graphic picture) Ears are like fingerprints, they are used to match suspects to captured images.  The physical description of suspect #2 (USA2), the gunman during the July 2nd robbery, fits the physical description of Mr. Philando Castile on July 6th to a tee:

  • A black man
  • shoulder-length dreadlocks
  • and glasses
  • hair pulled into a bun
  • small mustache and facial hair on his chin

Now, why does this matter?  Well, the July 6th police stop of the car with Mr. Castile and Ms. Reynolds was in the general vicinity of the previous SuperUSA convenience store armed robbery.   The stop was also at the same general time of day.  The stop was also the day after the police department released the CCTV footage of the suspects.

Would it change the overall impression of events if the officer:

….was not simply pulling over a random vehicle identified with a broken tail light (claim of Ms. Reynolds); but rather the officer was pulling over a vehicle containing a B.O.L.O driver who fit the exact profile of an armed robbery suspect a few days earlier?

Wouldn’t it be entirely plausible for a rather concerned police officer to be additionally, well, twitchy perhaps, about a possible armed robbery suspect -pulled over- who identifies he is armed inside the vehicle, and then makes an unanticipated movement toward….

Well, I think you get the overall thesis.

Officer Background Audio:

Officer:…”I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand off it.”

Reynolds: “He had, you told him to get his ID sir, his driver’s license. Please don’t tell me he’s dead”…

You decide.

And remember…


UPDATE 7/8/16 3:00pm EDT:

KARE11 News has just presented police radio communication that confirms this exact set of facts and thesis.  –READ HERE– The officers have also been identified:

[…] We have verified that the license plate mentioned by police in the recording matches the plate of the car Castile was driving.  The location the officer gives also corresponds to the locations of the traffic stop.

I’m going to stop a car,” the officer says on the recording. “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 officer says. “The driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ‘cause of the wide set nose,” the officer continues.

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

It appears the reason to pull over the vehicle was exactly what our research into the shooting indicated. Additionally here’s information on the police officers:

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The officers involved in the fatal shooting Wednesday night of 32-year-old Philando Castile have been identified, and investigators say there is a squad car video of the incident.

According a press release from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), Officer Jeronimo Yanez fired the fatal shots and Officer Joseph Kauser assisted in the traffic stop. Both have been with the St. Anthony Police Department for four years, and both are on the standard administrative leave.

Investigators with the BCA say they’re reviewing squad car video of the shooting, and will be interviewing witnesses. St. Anthony Police Officers don’t wear body cameras. Once the investigation is complete, the BCA will submit its findings to the Ramsey County Attorney “without recommendation.”

According to the press release, officers Yanez and Kauser conducted a traffic stop at 9:05 p.m. Wednesday night near Larpenter Avenue West and Fry Street.

Officer Yanez approached the driver’s side, where Castile was sitting, and Officer Kauser approached the passenger side, where Diamond Reynolds was sitting.

At one point in the stop, BCA officials say Officer Yanez fired his weapon multiple times, striking Castile. Reynolds then streamed the aftermath live on Facebook, which quickly went viral. (read more)

    I’m reading these – never got to the end. But people are talking re the unfairness and inequality here. What is unfair and unequal about someone who does something known to be against the law….. even if it’s resisting arrest, to be arrested? Everybody knows that if you resist arrest, there are consequences, and unfortunately, in this case, the person pushed the cop to have to shoot, and protect himself. Drop the color, I don’t care if you’re purple or green, or any other color, if we are supposed to quietly pull over, keep our hands exposed at all times, not argue, etc, then lets all do it. We all know the law, Let’s keep the law, and if someone doesn’t let’s recognize them as criminal. It’s that easy. We’re all in this nation together. Let’s see things for what they are, and love each other.

    The impression I am left with as I sit in my safe neighborhood is that the wild streets of our large cities are places where no person in their right (no-history of incarceration or hoodlum living) mind would live. Many of the folks there in the “tuff” neighborhoods have actually lived for a while in prisons. They grow up tuff… they have to join a gang to stay alive in those neighborhoods. They are always wary and alert. There is no EASY way out of their lives. Trapped. The ONLY way out is thru…Education, money, parental support, money, feeling like you are worth something because of your gifts God has blessed you with and a desire to help others or serve others as demonstrated by your parents rich lives of love and care and giving to others. ( White entitlement and privelage I am not educated that well folks….), money, contacts and connections thru your parents friends and accquaintences which entitle you to a first job and experience are all the boosts that a person needs in his or her life to achieve something more than JUST SURVIVING! This way out of the HOOD is what those who do not have it are pissed off about!!!! Oh yeah, and a car that really works everyday so you can make it to work everyday to make money. A parent…Father….who would help you fix the car or even provide you with the first loan for the car this is SO HUGE!!!! But without all of this a person living in the hell of gang bang land will never move on up to the EAST SIDE! So how do we change all this???? If i went to the gang bang hell right now…the hate and animosity there would put me in a hospital or worse yet. Anger, resentment, bitterness, no hope, abandonment, no self worth based on love, many of these people have parents who were also in the pokey and so the tradition of “tuffness” continues generation after generation. But the problem with all of this is that I know people of color whose parents modeled…ahem….White Christian Conservative values for their innner city raised children and what do you know….They are a Doctor, CEO of a large corporation and all very successful and creating the same kind of environment for their offspring to continue on that different road. Color really does have nothing to do with it because I know white families who are “Tuff as Hell” they are traveling down the same road…fighting in front of their kids from an early age…do not have self respect or self love that is proper…degrading themselves with drugs and alcohol and moving ever closer to poverty and ruin as they scream at you with the following words and attitude… “I will Do what I want to and there is no one who is going to change me you F#@K OFF!” Same symptoms and same creation of a very sad existence. YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE. I learned something when I was three…I had it drilled into me. By my White parents….Become the person you would want others to be. simple but true. I live in a neighborhood with like minded self respecting, confident and hard working people of many colors. I see them go to work in NEW CARS. I see them live in NICE SECURE HOMES. I know they all have concealed weapons permits and non of their guns have killed anyone. Nor have mine….they seem to stay where I left them last. People jog around some scantilly clad…but no rape or prostitution going on here. Folks walk their dogs and pick up the shit!!!! Children of many colors are at play in our neighborhood you have to slow down cuz the children at play signs are all out at the end of driveways in front of homes that all have mowed lawns and constant upkeep being done to them. People care for each other and about their community. Can that be said for these inner city places and the people who survive there…The “Tuff” people who really in the end are the exact opposite. They are damaged, hurting individuals living in a real war zone having to join up and form ranks with evil powerful Tuff men and women in order to survive. The money is made not by an honest way but by evil. These are the people the news is showing us and I am trying to figure out at what point we take up arms and will have to fight these “unfortunate ones” off before they overtake and destroy my way of life and society. Is my society wrong? Is my culture evil? Are all my neighbors and me bad? Or are we supposed to be like them? /Are we supposed to become “TUFF” like them? go through the living hell of prison and shit so we really know what it is like???? I do know what it is like from reading about conflicts and wars and poverty and, and, and, and…..blah blah blah….That is why I made a choice and was influenced by my parents who were influenced by their parents who actually lived in a living hell war zone with all the SAME SHIT these TUFF people are living with and guess what??? My Grand Parents and also my Great Great Grand parents experienced the same shit and decided long ago that THAT KINDA life was SHIT and so they got up off their ASSESS and packed all their SHIT and left at GREAT COST! Because they did that I now live in a nice communtiy within a nice culture around me and DAMN IT I WILL STAND UP AND DO WHAT IT TAKES TO DEFEND THIS WAY OF LIFE FOR MY CHILDREN’s CHILDREN!!!! Bring it on!!!! Somethings are worth the struggle and yes dying for! But I ain’t no TUFF guy….no…I am a self respecting, lover of my fellow man and the way of true peace and prosperity for all!!! Those who are serving me and my neighbors behind sheilds, hoses, stethescopes, aircraft and ships are all doing so for one reason so they have a wonderful community to return to. I will given them my full support, respect, honor, awe, admiration, help and prayer daily. I am so sad today because some great men and women have lost their lives for very noble purposes. The tyrants are at the gates and these are trying to stop them. Will you stand in the gap you younger men and women??? Will you hear the cadence call and join the police forces in our country??? You lived in our wonderful communities and have enjoyed safety and comfort….Please stand up for peace and prosperity. For freedoms and property. Only by these few standing in the gap is our community of peace and way of life preserved. This all comes at a huge price you know. If no one is willing to stand up for the pleasant neighborhood then it will no longer exist. Yeah, someones blood had to be shed so I could sit on my deck in my safe community tonight and have a BBQ and type all this up on my laptop in the sunlight from a setting sun. What kind of America will it rise up on????

      My dad grew up during the Depression quit school at 13 so we can go to work and support the family never finished high school I was blind in one eye and never committed one crime in his entire life. He slepped in an uninsulated unheated garage during the winter so his family could rent his room out so they can eat. He had to beg his way into the military so they would let him in because he was blind and when I finally they did. He grew up tough in the tough neighborhood. You can do something different if you want to . WAA

    It is called respect for our Police officers!!! Law is what makes society possible, without it there is chaos. I watched the videos and see people who have guns, using them in a way to intimidate. This is not what concealed carry (if they actually had a CCW) is about, because one has the right to bare arms, it does not in anyway make them more powerful. It should make them more considerate as they are given an opportunity to keep peace, if necessary. Or protect themselves from an attack should that happen. There are rules and unspoken values that have to go along with the right to carry, it doesn’t matter what color you are in any hue. “All Lives Matter”, “Blue Lives Matter” I don’t care what color you are or what profession you hold “Respect for Life Matters “!!
