Black Gun Owners Not Happy With Jury Clearing Officer In Castile Case

Black Gun Owners Not Happy With Jury Clearing Officer In Castile Case

Some held signs that read "this hurts" and "Justice not served for Philando". The authorities made 18 arrests shortly after midnight on Friday after the protesters refused to disperse.

Yanez claimed that he feared for his life - that he believed Castile was, in that moment, reaching for his gun - while Reynolds maintains Castile was only taking out his I.D. Castile, a 32-year-old cafeteria supervisor, had a permit for the gun and alerted Yanez to the fact that he had a firearm on his person. His death garnered national attention after his girlfriend began recording the incident on Facebook Live.

Yanez pulled Castile over in July because he reportedly matched the description of a burglar suspect.

"I'm mad as hell right now, yes I am", shouted Castile. The protestors also say they were trying to raise awareness of violence against transgender people of color.

This is now the third straight day people have taken to the streets over this verdict.

Yanez, who is Latino, testified he stopped Castile in a suburb of St. Paul, Falcon Heights, because he thought Castile resembled someone who robbed a nearby store several days earlier.

Yanez was charged with second-degree manslaughter, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, though sentencing guidelines suggested around four years would have been more likely.

The verdict also tells blacks that "the Second Amendment does not apply to them" because Castile "was honest with the officer about having a weapon in the vehicle, and there is no evidence that he attempted to or meant to use the weapon against the officer", the Louisiana Democrat said.

Ken gets makeover: Cornrows, beefy bod and new skin tones
Mattel Inc., based in El Segundo, California, says some of the new Ken dolls will be available for sale on its website Tuesday. Last year, the line of new Barbie dolls won "Doll of the year" at the Toy Industry Association's Annual T.O.T.Y.

Yanez shot Castile seven times after he pulled him over for a broken tail light.

Philip Stinson, a criminologist at Ohio's Bowling Green State University who tracks fatal police shootings, found that nearly 40 percent of the 82 officers nationwide charged with murder or manslaughter since 2005 were not convicted.

Prosecutor John Choi, who made the decision to charge Yanez, said although he was disappointed, the verdict "must be respected".

State police said on Twitter that it arrested 18 protesters after a smaller group splintered off and walked down an entrance ramp to block Interstate 94 in St. Paul, shutting down traffic in both directions.

Castile was shot with Reynolds and her 4-year-old daughter in the vehicle.

Outside the courthouse, Castile's mother said Yanez got away with murder. Many were outraged by what they saw as Diamond Reynolds' outwardly calm voice described Castile being shot after reaching for his wallet. Yanez was innocent. He was just doing his job'.

"Because I know that the people are not protected against the police", Reynolds said.

“He didnt deserve to die the way he did, ” Philando Castiles sister, Allysza, said, through tears.

She asked people if they remembered the Montgomery bus boycott, a protest against racial segregation on public transportation that ultimately led to a change in Alabama law.
