Police Say 21 Officers Injured After Protesters Shut Down I-94

PHILADELPHIA PA- NOVEMBER 01 Judge Glenda Hatchett signs books at the Pennsylvania Conference For Women 2013 at Philadelphia Convention Center

The deaths in Dallas came during a protest over the shootings of Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Louisiana, both at the hands of police.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A suburban St. Paul police officer who killed a black driver reacted to the man's gun, not his race, his attorney said Saturday, giving the most detailed account so far of why the officer drew his own weapon during the traffic stop last week.

The St. Anthony Police Department's 2015 annual report points to Yanez's volunteerism; he gave a tour of the station to a local Cub Scout troop and volunteered with St. Paul's Cinco de Mayo celebration, participating in a parade with other members of the National Latino Police Officers Association.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is expressing condolences to the Facebook user who live-streamed the aftermath of a fatal police shooting on Wednesday.

It was a contrast to their approach at protests outside the governor's mansion in the wake of motorist Philando Castile's police shooting death Wednesday in the suburb of Falcon Heights. As the AP notes, it is impossible to know how numerous times Castile was pulled over were the result of racial profiling, but a 2001 study conducted in the area at the request of the Minnesota State Legislature had indicated that, as is often the case throughout the country, racial and ethnic bias likely played a role in police officers' traffic stop policies and practices, as well as the citizen reports that sometimes lead to those stops. "I don't think it's going to stop the officer from interacting with the men and women who are out there at a peaceful protest", said Sean Gormley, executive director of Law Enforcement Labor Services, Minnesota's largest police union.

The department told The Huffington Post that they were not answering questions and said to contact the Minnesota Department of Public Safety's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is leading the investigation into Castile's death.

Turnbull still awaits election count
Labor was leading the count in 68 seats and favoured in Herbert, Capricornia and Hindmarsh - but in the last by just eight votes. The ALP candidate in Cowan, Anne Aly, will become the first Muslim woman elected to Federal Parliament should she win.

Yanez and Kauser, both four-year veterans, were put on administrative leave, as is standard, authorities said. In November 2015, Minneapolis police officers shot Jamar Clark, a 24-year-old black man, in the head while he was pinned to the ground, because he allegedly reached for one of their guns. I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the police, or tell him that he has to watch his back because the people we are told to trust - the people who "protect and serve" - may not be protecting and serving him because of the color of his skin'.

Police in Minnesota say a man has been taken to a hospital in unknown condition after being shot by an officer while inside a vehicle with a woman and a child.

The section of Interstate 94 in St. Paul that was closed by protesters Saturday night has been reopened. "He was just getting his licence and registration, sir", Reynolds calmly responds. Dayton later said he stood by his statement, even though he angered some in law enforcement. He wouldn't have been shot four times, with a 4-year-old child in the auto. Paul area since 2002.

Yanez's attorney, Thomas Kelly, hasn't returned messages from The Associated Press but told the Star Tribune newspaper that his client is cooperating with the probe and remains distraught over what happened.

Potter reported from Minneapolis.
