Philando Castile Shooting: 18 Arrested in Protests After Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez Found Not Guilty

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the Minnesota state capitol in St Paul on Friday evening [Saturday NZT], and a series of speakers demanded justice for minorities in the American judicial system and stronger accountability measures for police. Seven people were arrested during the massive demonstration near the state Capitol and no injuries were reported, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. / When your troops stop shootin n--s down in the street...,"says Tupac Amaru Shakur ("I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto") whose 46th birthday was on Friday, June 16, 2017, when the unjust verdict was reached".

During the trial, Yanez testified that Castile was pulling out his gun from his pocket despite his commands not to do so.

The incident drew worldwide condemnation when Castile's girlfriend live-streamed the aftermath on Facebook. Protests erupted in the Twin Cities and beyond.

For their part, Yanez's lawyers praised the results and said there shouldn't have been charges in the first place.

Most of the time there was a buffer between cars and protesters, because several police agencies did traffic control, blocking off side streets and diverting cars around the marchers.

"People have died for us to have these rights and now we're devolving", she said. In light of the officer's clearance, black gun owners are concerned about admitting they are licensed to carry to police officers, reports NBC Washington.

In reaction to the verdict, Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton offered his condolences to the Castile family, calling his death “a awful tragedy” in a statement that made no mention of Yanez.

After the verdict, the victim's mother Valerie Castile said: 'I'm mad as hell right now.

The Castile family, friends, and attorney, Glenda Hatchett had strong words of disapproval for the turnout of the trial which acquitted Jeronimo Yanez of all charges against him.

Philando told Yanez that he was carrying a gun and then reached to his glovebox.

The verdict sparked outrage among many in the St. Paul area. He says the jury sympathizes with Castile's family. "God help America", Reynolds said in a statement Friday. Saint Paul Police escorted the crowd, which they estimated to be about 2,000 people.

Prosecutors said Yanez never saw the gun, and had plenty of other options besides shooting Castile.

The verdict "tells African-Americans across the country that they can be killed by police officers with impunity, even when they are following the law", said Rep. Cedric Richmond, a Louisiana Democrat who is chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus. He was faced two lesser counts of endangering Reynolds and her daughter for opening fire into the auto.
