6 years ago Philando Castile was shot to death by Officer Yanez during a traffic stop. Many of us witnessed the harrowing moments on FB Live. RIP🧵
Philando Castile let Officer Yanez know in advance he had a legal firearm in the car and he wasn’t reaching for it. His girlfriend and her 4-year-old were in the car. But Yanez shot Philando anyway. #howcopsgetoff
Yanez was acquitted of manslaughter for the killing of Philando Castile. He used the magic words cops use to avoid liability, “I feared for my life.”
