Moments after Philando Castile was shot by a police officer in Minnesota last summer, his girlfriend started live streaming on Facebook, showing Castile bleeding and slumped in the driver's seat of his auto. In court, Yanez testified that Philando was pulling the firearm out of his pocket, despite being told not to.
A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without outcome, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! The officer shot Castile five times after Castile said he was carrying a gun. He testified he didn't see a gun inside the vehicle and didn't hear most of the conversation between Yanez and Castile, who appeared calm and relaxed.
A jury Friday found Yanez not guilty on all three counts related to the shooting. "My son loved this city and this city killed my son, and the murderer gets away - are you kidding me right now?"More news: CAPTURED: A national manhunt for two double-murdering prison escapees is over
Kaepernick had earlier tweeted: 'My heart aches for Philando's family'.
The 29-year-old garnered national headlines during the 2016 season for kneeling during the national anthem. "I'm mad as hell". "A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without effect, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!"
