“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)

(Archived Image Captures Available Here)

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?

mn shooting 11

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)

Another thing…. Can any of you men out there confirm how long it takes to grow side burns or a beard from no hair to quite a bit…because the suspect they say he looks like, didn’t have that hair on his face like that 2-3 days prior…Looking similar to someone doesn’t mean it is the same person & that guy looks brighter complected than Philandro.

            Because approaching someone that you suspect of being armed and dangerous, and telling them that you’re pulling them over to check ID because you think that they’re an armed robber, is a good way to create tension, put the suspect on edge, and escalate the situation?

That could amount of growth could EASILY be done by the average man in that timeframe, and some alteration in appearance most likely WOULD be attempted in the days following a robbery by any perp with a lick of sense.

    I’m recalling what that Canadian kid said about how in Europe making $10,000 a year is not adequate to support a family. Walter Scott was not supporting no family. Children are just unwanted side-effects and the cycle keeps going. Police and white people who want safety and law and order get blamed for these thugs’ own lack or respect for life. The problem is that I doubt this girl was the dead thug’s girlfriend in the sense that we think of a girlfriend. The relationship are casual, and connected with drug use and crime. The girlfriend was more of the business partner with casual relations on the side perpetuated by the seedy lifestyle.

    Every one of these situations over the past several years has typically been a young black man in a situation where he assaults the officer, tries to flee the scene. or both; in other words does exactly what you are not supposed to do. BLM takes advantage of these situation and stirs the pot to promote their agenda that seems to be funded by the likes of George Soros in an attempt to foment civil unrest. There can be no good reason to do this and most now think it is part of a plan to give Obama an excuse to confiscate the guns or to declare marshal law and stop the election. Give what the past 7 years have given up these predictions do make sense.

      Yes, there is no problem of unequal treatment. The folks and activists of black lives matter have decided to devote their lives and all their time to create a made up issue in the face of completely fair treatment because it gets them absolutely nothing to do so. That makes sense. And the idea that in a country where inequality has existed for centuries, it somehow magically stopped completely at some point also makes sense.

      The extent to which police brutality apologists go to justify police brutality is laughable. The standard is basically: If a minority has ever misstepped in any way we can uncover at any point in their life, that negates any circumstance of violence perpetrated on them.

      If you’re a flawed human at any point, you’ve given up your human rights forever. If you have black/brown skin.

      Not that it matters. Even if it happened to someone whose character you couldn’t assassinate, you’d still justify it.

      And people like you have been using this logic basically for centuries. You claim inequality doesn’t exist but are an agent for mentalities that have existed from the beginning. Your lack to recognize the irony is pathetic.

        “The folks and activists of black lives matter have decided to devote their lives and all their time to create a made up issue in the face of completely fair treatment because it gets them absolutely nothing to do so.”

        I think you’ve largely captured it, overall.

        Don’t kid yourself with that “gets them absolutely nothing” premise.

        It gets them trillions in welfare, housing and heating assistance, ethnic preferences in hiring and college admissions, tuition grants, kid-glove treatment, race-card bullying advantage over other ethnicities, general lack of accountability expected of other members of productive society, and the self-satisfaction of bathing in the warm glow of their perceived victimhood (no matter the extent to which it is delusionally imagined or dishonestly manufactured – “hands up” anyone?).

        “Completely fair treatment”? Of course not. But certainly not unfair to the extent commensurate with their perceived degree of oppression, which is highly exaggerated and for purpose. I dare say other ethnic groups experience “unfairness” of some sort or other, shall we all pull out our ethnic measuring sticks or shall we be Americans?

        So spare me, thanks.

        The extent apologists go to justify criminal activity just prior to the act of ‘police brutality’ is what is laughable. Why is it in nearly every case touted as police brutality you have some ACTIVELY engaging in a criminal act before they meet their untimely end?

        And add in how a handful of acts… regardless of how questionable their actions (or media driven perception thereof), it somehow represents ALL within or associated with the profession. And if we ‘apologist’ were to use the same logic that a couple thugs in a certain neighborhood, or of a certain pigment means ALL share the same character flaw, we’d be ignorant racists… yet it’s blindly accepted by you lot.

          How about not getting to touch a dime of the GI Bill after WW2? While White people bought houses and grew wealth by leveraging that property to create businesses, blacks were being fenced into low priority districts by real-estate agents and local government that colluded to do so. If they did well enough, Blacks were only allowed to buy through the now illegal contract sales where paying into the house created no equity until it was fully paid off because agents could repo the house after one missed payment, but usually just started the purchase at zero again. Is that imagined? Is red-lining imagined? The Fair Housing Act of 1968 passed to stop those discriminatory practices sure doesn’t think so. Jim Crow was imagined too, I’m sure. People passed Civil Rights Acts for no reason. I can go on about the empirically racist shit that has been a part of America since day one and undermined the organic growth and fruition that Whites enjoyed. To say it’s imagined despite the fact (some of) you seem pretty smart and all about scouring the net for information about the impending NWO just makes you sound conveniently selective in your history, inexcusably racist, or both.

          They are trying to divide and conquer us and you are just as culpable a lynch pin as the BLM political engineers by playing into the game and pointing fingers, even defensively. Go out and find the nearest Black person, a fellow American that since day one helped build what we’ve got here in America, and tell him what you know about political engineering, divide and conquer strategies, Marxist government infiltration, and how you have no problem with him/her and that George Soros wants us fighting so he can buy us out. Rise above this my White brothers. Actually research what has happened in this country past and present with the mind that YOU are not being blamed for what has happened in the past, you didn’t own slaves, but the wounds and effects still linger because of so long an ordeal. The goal is to heal us so we can unite against the real enemy. Really, regardless of your emotional stance on the plight Black people, it is only with a united America that we can win. Same as I tell my Black brothers and sisters when they are being pulled into becoming the the racists ourselves with this propaganda. White people are getting shot too. They killed a 19 year old White kid the other day. No mention. It’s to hide the truth from Whites so that they think they’re safe. Blacks think it’s only us. Groups clash. F*** the police state. F*** George Soros.

          Also as far as the shooting in question goes, the security camera shot seems to show a clean shaven jaw line after the goatee, while in the police shooting video his sideburns continue along the jawline and make contact with his goatee. Either he grew the beard connection in less than two days or this is not the suspect.

He’s not part of no gang…yet on his Facebook page, Merry Cripmas and happy blue year? And she claims towards the end of her live post, we didn’t do nothing wrong…we got some weed in the car, but that’s about it.

            Because she’s black, she couldn’t possibly be racist, yet at the very end of her video she felt it was important to report the officer who shot her “boyfriend” was Chinese and about 5’5″/5’6″ or 5/6 and a half. Should we be on the lookout for him?

        The fact is that there are no incidences where police brutality has been proven and nothing was done. In the cases where unjustified murder of black men was alerted, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray, the facts prove that these dead men were alone responsible for there deaths. There hasn’t been time for the truth to be determined. The BLM movement is just like their fellow Democrats the KKK, judging based on race and ignoring the facts. The reality is that the BLM movement consists of black criminals attempting to stop the police from bothering them when their committing crimes. And progressive fascist who attempting to exploit them for political power.

            There are cautions in interpretation. One is (I believe, from memory) that Hispanics are lumped as “white” in criminal offender category (thereby highly inflating “white” crime rate) yet broken out separately in victim category. This is true for certain years’ reports, only corrected recently I think.

        Could you hazard a guess as to how many people in the US have been killed by police so far this year and the color of the majority of them? Did you know that on the same day that Castile (who admitted to police he had a firearm) was shot in Minnesota, that a 24-year-old white woman (the mother of three children including a few-weeks-old infant) with a history of mental instability, was shot and killed by police in Arizona? Had she been black, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, every BLM/Black Panther member and every other black in the country would be howling that two burly police officers couldn’t figure out how to disarm a woman half their size and instead executed her BECAUSE SHE WAS BLACK!

        At this point in time, we should always keep in mind that we do not have much information at this point in time, and we know that initial reports in these tragedies have usually been wrong. That being said, there are some things that raise my curiousity and indicate that more investigation and analysis are needed before judgements are made. Here is one item of curiousity: the police departments of which I am aware have a protocol to follow when a driver says that he is armed. It would be amazing if Falcon Heights does not have such a protocol. What Reynolds reports is not consistent with that protocol. Now it could be that Falcon Heights does not have such a protocol, or it could be that the officer failed to follow the protocol, or . . . it could be that Reynolds did not provide accurate information. We do not know at this point in time, and therefore judgements should be withheld. Certainly inflammatory judgements should be withheld.

      I was unaware this man assaulted the officer while still wearing his seat belt. When did any single news outlet report that? He was complying & she wasn’t argumentative or combative with the officers, even after they shot someone right next to her & in front of her child…any of those bullets could’ve went through him & the seat and killed the baby in the back, but I guess that would’ve been acceptable also because the child, what “had it coming too”,”was threatening the cops by being a child”?? After reading a lot of the comments, it’s become clear to me that people just don’t care about anyone that isn’t them. And I don’t mean that in a racial way, I mean that in a selfishly heartless way.

      Here’s what I found of that recording… He fit the description not because of his color, hair,beard, car…but because he has a “Wide Set Nose”. When cops talk to dispatch about pulling over a vehicle, they radio in the plate of the vehicle they are about to pull over.

      If you know anything about gangs or have done the slightest bit of research (I have & I’m from Los Angeles, home of the crips and bloods who are separated by a train track) crips wear blue…not turquoise, and no red in anything AT ALL… bloods wear red, no green & no blue. I know what it’s like to have to pick neutral colors so that you don’t accidentally get mistaken as a recruit… that’s no fun & it limits your wardrobe options. I seriously doubt he was a gang member.

      I won’t speak on BLM because honestly, I don’t believe they do to many Americans. As a black female who’s been mistaken for a dude because I like colorful beanies in the winter time & happen to have short hair…I’ve been pulled over for all kinds of bullshit reasons… my brand new car that I still have the dealership paperwork for was miraculously reported stolen the same day I purchased it, are you really smoking a cigarette riding down an interstate highway not near a hospital, my registration is expired 3 months before the tag clearly says it’s due to expire…and every time (I’m willing to say this is completely coincidental) the white officers who’ve followed me for over 3 miles thought I was a man. Because they couldn’t see my hair because of my hats, because at night time my factory tint was too dark, because they’re full of shit and profiling but they won’t admit to that. However, when they see I’m female they all have the same dumb ass “Damn…thought I had one” look on their face. I keep full coverage auto insurance, make sure all my lights work, make sure I register my car before it expires, have all my maintenance done as scheduled all so I can try to avoid having to deal with officers unnecessarily. Do I speed? Yes but I pay all my tickets and have yet to have a warrant in my 35 years. Some of the traffic judges know me well… I work & have probably spoken to some of the people who comment here if you happen to bank with JP Morgan & by my voice you’d never know I was black. None of my customers seem to care as long as I can address their issues on the first call without them having to speak to someone in another country who doesn’t understand english. But despite me being a law abiding, God fearing, hard working, degree holding, tax paying citizen, I’m actually at a point where these gun toting cowards who claim to be law officers scare me for my personal safety. Just yesterday, I pulled into my driveway, got out of my car as an officer was driving by & he had the unmitigated gall to ask me if I lived there…I’m opening my gate to pull my car into my yard, when this happened. When I offered to show him ID (which has the same address on it) he looked upset and shocked that I would just offer like that… But it’s better than dying in my driveway because the same cop I wave at on a regular suddenly didn’t recognize me.

    Forget tail lights and CC permits. Why didn’t the the “girlfriend” ask and keep begging for an ambulance to be sent and for emergency first-aid to be administered to her bleeding out “boyfriend”? If she was live-streaming immediately after a super loud gunshot existential event after which she was fearful for her life and thought they might be disappeared by crooked cops and so went public, why didn’t she name her boyfriend/ victim and spell out her own for the record? She worked in legalistic details but left off their names and any begging to render him aid. I think she knew nothing bad was going to happen to her and that Boyfriend was going to be declared dead, anyway.

    And, why would the police not confiscate her cellphone as evidence? Why would they let her broadcast in the original car and then when in the patrol car? Check out the part where she contends the PO’lice threw her phone down upon handcuffing her. The video doesn’t look thrown at all and more like the phone was sat down to stream the sky while a performance could be heard in the background. At some point the screen goes black, but the audio continues– ?

    When she’s in the patrol car, still handcuffed, someone enabled her picture streaming video to start, again, and sync with the audio. Did the cops return the phone to this handcuffed suspect, instead of holding it for evidence? Did they further fix it so she could somehow hold it on her lap and continue loudly recording her anti-police personal narrative of events on it? Meanwhile, there was next to no interruption or noise interference with her telecasting by the driver or dispatch radio in front. Seriously, the patrol car footage of her looks like the spooky Blair Witch Project pseudo-documentary.

    Perhaps her untraumatized four year-old fixed the settings for her to continue broadcasting and unicorns are real.

    Thanks for the work on this especially documenting his arrest photo and likely gang membership. Anyone in the Police officer’s situation would be nervous based on the armed robbery alert. In my humble opinion, however, this is a sad case of mistaken identity. If you look closely at USA2 his facial hair does not extend from his chin to his mustache as does Mr. Castile’s, nor does USA’s. Excuse the gross slang but some refer to this as a ‘prison pussy’. Mr. Castile has one, the robbers do not. I support the officer, I’ve made the same mistake in a firearm training scenario, but I’m a civilian, and lucky for me and my victim it was simulation. What this screams to me is not to blame the officer but to conduct more training on identification and to change traffic stop procedure. Also, while we are in a heated environment I suggest that anyone stopped should keep their hands where the police can see them at all times. I told my son to do this when stopped. He thanked me later after he was stopped for a violation. The cop also thanked him for showing his hands. It may everyone safe.

      No. As explained in several comments and maybe in the header story section, the policeman was pulling them over as fitting the description of security-camera-filmed armed robbers (that’s captured on police radio scanner).

      If so, the policeman would be approaching them as potentially dangerous and potentially armed.

      Would he tell them he’s pulling them over because he suspects they’ve committed an armed robbery. No. If they were armed robbers, he might find guns coming out and firing at him in a fraction of a second.

      So the girlfriend saying they were pulled over for a tail light may be a true account, so far as she was told. The policeman may have told them they were being pulled over for something fairly inconsequential so as not to get their guard up and to lessen the possibility of himself getting shot / killed.

    4) Black slavery is STILL HAPPENING in Africa and the entire middle east so why not protest that?

    5) EVERYONE have been slaves throughout history not only blacks but whites, (IRISH INCLUDED), Asians, Christians, Jews ( who btw had it WORSE than anyone during the nazi regime yet still thrive as a people and not blame people who had nothing to do with it)

    6) MILLIONS of WHITE Americans gave their lives BELIEVING they were fighting for the freedom and dignity of blacks during the civil war but THIS fact seems to have been forgotten or….

    7) There were black freemen that owned WHITE slaves in America so I could accuse any black of owning MY great grandfather if I chose to also but in good conscience I cannot blame people for something they never did …

    8) As shameful as black slavery was the white Irish slavery outnumbered black slavery considerably.

    9) The Chickasaw indians were the LAST in America to free their slaves, LONG after the passage of the 13th Amendment.

    10) Hundred of thousands of blacks are STILL slaves in many muslim countries.

    11) DEMOCRATS fought to keep slavery & republicans fought to end it from the very beginning…

    12) Blacks owned white and black slaves too so where are WHITE SLAVERY REPARATIONS?!? ENOUGH with the racist “white privilege” and “victim” mentality, please. Slavery is still happening to women TODAY in Islam but no one is talking about that…if I LOVE THIS WOMAN am I still racist?…

    As a 2nd amendment advocate, I believe that the sad proliferation of US shooting incidents, whether random or planned, gives Government the manufactured support (aka, “public outcry”) it needs to advance gun control and disarm citizens, even if the reputation of law enforcement must take a big hit in the process.

    I appreciate this report because it helped spur my critical thinking after my initial teary, outraged reaction to Ms Diamond’s videos. However, upon further reflection, your assessment seems flawed as your point seems to be: “He was a suspected gang banger and convenience store robber, so that makes it OK for them to have shot him.”

    “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….”

    Sure, it’s entirely understandable that the officer would be “twitchy” – but being nervous and submitting to personal bias by assuming that the man in front of you probably committed armed robbery does NOT give you the right to shoot him. In effect, you’ve just personally found him “guilty” instead of assuming his innocence, which is what our laws are based on.

    Let’s assume the worst: Castile was a gang banger who engaged in criminal activities and he was indeed an armed robber at the convenience store. Since when is “death by cop” the appropriate sentence for robbing a convenience store?

    Regardless of whether the officer perceived him to be an armed robber or the freakin’ Pope, HE DID NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO SHOOT HIM 4 TIMES WITHOUT MORE EVIDENCE THAT DEFENSE WAS NECESSARY.

    “Twitchiness” does not make it OK for police officers to be trigger-happy. Nervousness is a natural human reaction, and I believe that a lack of proper training is the issue. There are many forms of de-escalation and “calm under pressure” training that law enforcement can invest in. It’s high time they do, because while I admire your dedication to the truth, this incident still smells like a regrettable, unacceptable mistake that proper policies and training could have alleviated.

      This is where people get tripped up, and it’s because you can’t connect the dots. Nobody should be saying it’s ok he was shot because he was a suspect, but if he was a suspect, and was reckless with a firearm, which could be legal or illegal that caused the shooting. It’s the reaction of a subject, not the reason the person that was stopped that causes shootings. Could it all be BS and it was indeed murder? Certainly possible.

      really? It didn’t bother you to see her watching her mother and Castille (who is NOT her father) pass a big ol blunt back and forth, making her breathe it in? If you haven’t seen that video, you need to. The look on that child’s face is heartbreaking. IMO, the cop did her a favor by taking at least one bad element out of her life.

    Put yourself in officer tames situation. Armed robbery suspect fits description. You approach car and learn that the driver , who you are checking to see if he is the armed robber you seek, announces he has a licensed gun on the car seat (lol). Cause all of us licensed gun owners do that. You tell him don’t make a move and he does.

    Can’t say I would have shot him but honestly cants say I would not have shot him.

    Teach your kids to listen to police instructions. They are human and in a high risk and high stress job. They can meet their end at any moment at the hands of some not so scrupulous individuals. And yes the are high strung.

    But let’s not jump on the “lavish” Reynolds bandwagon aka Tawana Brawey.

    I wonder if the police thought about showing Castile’s picture to the convenience store clerk to see if he was one of the thug robbers? Nothing mentioned about i so far.

      That would have been done if they could have gotten him out of the car. I don’t think they intended to shoot him. I think his actions fueled that outcome. The report has not been released yet as to how many shots were fired but I do know that police carry semiautomatic weapons so he could have only pressed the trigger once and more than one bullet fired.

      he had misdemeanors. They are allowable….however, drugs are not. If ccw holders were required to drug test, his would have been revoked, along with his license. As for the eobbery, that had only happened a few days before and he hadn’t been named in it yet. I believe he did it. Do people really think that people with a cc permit are incapable of breaking the law? Even his gun looks like the one used in the robbery. What better alibi to have if one gets caught with a pistol than “I have a permit”?

    Although the image of the suspect in the robbery seems to match the guy that was shot. If you look closely you will see that the guy that robbed the store did not have as much facial hair as Philando (sideburns), unless he was using some super Rogaine, there is no way that he could have grown that much hair in one day. I get where he could be misidentified but some people seem to think that it’s actually him robbing the store. Although I like the ear theory which is what pointed out the flaw in your statement.

    Whoops, I did NOT realize there were a number of days between the robbery suspect photo and the shooting. I stand completely corrected. I guess Castile could have been the suspect. That said, I am not in favor of such triggger happy cops. That just isn’t how our country’s law enforcement should be operating.

      We don’t have enough information to know if he was trigger-happy or not. If that’s a gun on his lap, then the cop wasn’t trigger-happy. We also know nothing about what happened before he was shot. We only have the video from afterwards.

        He could not have been reached for his wallet if he just told the police officer that he had a gun in the car. The officer would have told him to keep his hands on the wheel and he would have talked to him for a while to calm the situation. Like asking him where the gun was located. Is it on him or under the seat, or in the glove box. He would then have retrieved the weapon before asking for his ID. That is standard practice. Because he was reaching for anything escalated the situation. I still think he had his hand on the gun when he was shot. I don’t know if it was pointed at the police. If not, the police officer was a little trigger quick but I could definitely see him feeling threatened by just his hand being on the gun.

    I find it odd she says his arm was shot off, clearly it wasn’t, and for being shot 4 or 5 times the blood on his shirt does not reflect that. She starts declaring him dead, but you can see him still breathing. Also do all police wear baseball hats on patrol? Officers in my city do not. Also the way they were lined up and pointing their guns at her was weird? Just off to me. If she is handcuffed in the back of the patrol car how is she maneuvering it around? Why didn’t they take it away? Have any details for funeral been released? This one doesn’t add up. But it served it purpose unfortunately. I hope the truth comes out.

    I’d think it would be best if the site used extra care to avoid being seen as painting the deceased as an armed robber. He very well may have been, but we don’t -know- that. The vehicle stop was 100% legit and was for a match to an armed robbery, but this early on we really have little reliable info. Well, except that major media outlets will spin the story and incite violence, and that the Governor did so, as did the President, and that the Dallas shooting …..

    But keep in mind that everything posted here will be taken in the most inflammatory way possible. I believe SD really wants to find the truth, and there’s a good chance he will. But it’s very easy to be suckered into false info that appears to support you, but was actually planted to discredit. Remember the fake photo of Darren Wilson’s broken eye socket? That looks a lot like a clever plant to discredit the truth that Wilson was brutally attacked.

    Let’s show some respect (but not fawning) for the dead, and believe nothing until we know a good bit more.

    Everyone needs to familiarize themselves with the Graham V. Connor standard that is based off what a reasonable officer under the same circumstances would do.

    With that said, if someone appears to be going for a weapon and these cases a handgun, the officer does not have to wait before the gun is actually pointed before deploying deadly force.

    If an officer instructs you to not to move suddenly or not to move in the direction of the weapon and especially if known, you are foolish to make a move anywhere near it!!

    In the Baton Rouge shooting… Suspect was carrying per dispatch thru a call placed to them. They are struggling with him and on both videos his right arm cannot be seen. Which suggests the dark environment and possibly under the car. If he even appeared to reach for that weapon he could be neutralized!!! Period!!

    Like in Michael Brown case… The people that are being shot by police are doing things that warrant a police investigation from the start. Officers are just not stopping and making shit up to arrest them. Furthermore, some people don’t even look at the facts and are upset just because ” a black was shot by a white cop.” Of course being in law enforcement in the past, I recall being pulled over in the early morning hours….. I was going home from work. The officer would say I was weaving over the roadway. I was not!!! But in the middle of the night the officers didn’t know my race.

    Stop doing things that warrant police attention/ investigation and they will stop being shot! If a white person makes a move for a weapon he will be just as shot as a black person!!

    Yes. It is her video after the shooting that is supposed to be her side of the story is full of lies and anger. It is that negative emotions that she sent online. I am still curious as to why. As others have said she instead should have been thinking about her child. I am still waiting for more information to be released from the investigation. And yes, the officers will be punished most likely through their department which is not public information. If this goes to court the officers lose their jobs even if the court finds them not guilty. In my opinion their was no reason to make the video and put it online. She was already going to be given the opportunity to make her statement at the police station. There was already going to be an investigation because all police related shootings are investigated. There was no need to say anything until an investigation was completed. If she did not put this online the police would not have been shot in Dallas. She gave that shooter the reason he was looking for to ambush police officers. People need to be more aware that their words an actions affect others, both positively and negatively. Peace to all people.

    Even if Castile was a gang banger, and even if he did not have a permit for a gun, and even if he was a robbery suspect, he was the victim of a cop who had preconceived ideas about him being a bad guy and who then made conflicting commands. Show me your ID. Don’t move. Raise your hands. This became guess which one to follow in a split second or die. It could happen to anyone stupid enough to do the right thing and tell an officer I have a legal weapon.
    If this guy was showing a weapon the other cop would have had a better view and would have drawn and fired too, but he didn’t. Only one cop, the one who would not have a good view of the supposed gun fired.
    Take race out of this. Take good guy bad guy out of it. Forget about the girlfriend as to motives, history or whatever. If you have a weapon legally and told THIS particular cop you had it, you would be at risk of getting shot because he was not capable of handling the situation.
    If the cop is not punished then no one learns a lesson and everyone becomes a potential victim if the cop panics over you having a firearm, legal or not, within reach or not. You get shot from the word gun, not for doing anything wrong with it.
    Good cops know how to stay calm, control the situation and make it so EVERY ONE goes home alive when there is no evil intent.

      You are basing your views on rubbish coming out of his girlfriends mouth. The attorney for the officer has stated that the gun was in his lap and that he was shot because did not comply with instructions to keep his hands “up, visible and don’t move them”. In addition the attorney confirmed that he was pulled over because Castile fit the profile from the armed robbery July 2nd.

      So any claim that the police officer talked about ID or taillights is a lie. He was a suspect that was considered dangerous and I’m sure they approached his car with guns ready and immediately noticed the gun rather than chatting with them.
