Investigators Release Dashcam Video From Shooting of Philando Castile

Investigators Release Dashcam Video From Shooting of Philando Castile

The squad-car video was shown at trial, but had not before been released publicly.

The shooting on July 6 past year gained widespread attention because Mr Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, livestreamed its gruesome aftermath on Facebook.

Castile responds, "I wasn't reaching".

The video, taken from St Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez's squad vehicle, illustrated how a simple traffic stop of a black man shifted in an instant from a routine exchange to a deadly confrontation.

"Good", Yanez replies, telling him that the reason why he pulled him over is because the brake light to the vehicle is out.

Yanez, who had claimed that Castile's "wide-set nose" matched a description of an armed robbery suspect, said that the smell combined with the sight of the firearm caused him to fear for his life.

Castile can then be seen handing his insurance card to Yanez, which Yanez reads and then pockets.

Minutes later a second patrol unit arrives and Castile's limp body is dragged from the auto by Yanez and another police officer.

Actually if we did say more, it emulate exactly what Castile's mother, Valerie, said in her "f*ck the police" rant on Facebook Live after Yanez's not guilty verdict was announced. I told him to get his f-ing hand off his gun... The officer said, "Okay". Her four-year-old daughter was in the backseat of the auto, and was not harmed.

Minneapolis Urban League President Steven Belton says the video showed "a 21st century lynching".

Another officer was standing farther away on the passenger side of the auto where Reynolds was sitting. Also included in the file was audio of the interview Yanez gave to BCA agents the day after the shooting. Yanez immediately draws his weapon and points it at Castile, telling him not to reach for the weapon.

The memorial in Falcon Heights where the shooting took place is a physical reminder of what happened that night last July. Eighteen people were arrested.

"My son loved this city and this city killed my son and let the murderer get away".

She continued, "I am so disappointed in the state of Minnesota".

Although Yanez will not be returning to police department, popular opinion seems to be against this judgment.

The city says it concluded the public "will be best served" if Yanez no longer works for the city.

The jury heard two weeks of testimony and deliberated four-and-a-half days before finding Yanez not guilty.

Yanez orders her not to move, then says, "F-", multiple times.
