Not Surprising: Police Officer That Murdered Philando Castile Found 'Not Guilty'

Second day of Philando Castile protests continue in downtown Minneapolis

"You can't ignore your history", the picture reads, "always remember who they are".

St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez has been found not guilty of all counts for killing Philando Castile.

His defense team built a case around the notion that Officer Yanez was afraid Mr. Castile, a licensed gun-owner, was grabbing for his firearm, which the information of its presence, the prosecution argued, had been previously conveyed to the officer.

Kaepernick captioned his tweet: 'The quarterback captioned the image: 'A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without outcome, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!'

Testifying that Mr. Castile disregarded his order to not pull the gun out, Officer Yanez fired seven shots into the vehicle, five of which hit Castile.

Farron was a strong opponent of Brexit and supported a second referendum on Britain leaving the EU. Mrs May stressed that Brexit would happen and the timetable remains on course.

The July 6 shooting gained national attention after Diamond Reynolds - Castile's girlfriend, who was in the auto during the shooting - live-streamed the bloody aftermath on Facebook.

Fugitive slave patrols were common in the antebellum South, watching for runaway slaves. The march came just a day after protesters shutdown Interstate 94 in response to the verdict. Castile said with anger present in her tone.

Speaking after the verdict, Castile's mother, Valerie Castile, said her son was "murdered".

"The system continues to fail black people", she said.
