Trevor Noah Points Out The NRA's Silence Over Philando Castile's Death

22 June 2017

The graphic dash cam footage from a Minnesota traffic stop has been released where a police officer fatally shot Philando Castile.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota police officer who pulled over Philando Castile politely told the driver that his brake lights were out and calmly instructed him not to pull out his handgun before suddenly drawing his own weapon and firing seven rounds into the vehicle, a video released Tuesday showed.

When the shooting stops, the video shows Officer Yanez standing at the auto window with his gun drawn for some time.

The statement appeared in the transcript of Yanez's questioning by investigators last July, in which Yanez also failed to reveal that Castile had said he was "not reaching" for his handgun. Yanez then asks for Castile's license and insurance while another officer stands by the passenger side of the auto.

Yanez tells Castile his brake lights are out.

Finally, Britain kicks off Brexit negotiations with EU
If so, it could have to be ratified by up to 38 national and regional parliaments, with any of them effectively holding a veto. Once agreement has been made in this phase of the talks, the second phase discussing the future trade relationship can begin.

This video comes after Yanez's trial concluded on Friday, when he was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter and two counts of reckless discharge of a firearm.

While the contents of the dashcam footage are largely known, due to the court case, it's the first time the moments before Reynold's livestream have been seen by the public.

Castile: Sir, I have to tell you I do have a.

And last week, the officer was acquitted.

The video then shows Reynolds' young daughter exiting the back passenger door by herself, while Yanez's partner picks her up and ushers her away.

Dems say they'll slow Senate work over secretive care bill
The House health care bill proposes gutting the program, effectively ending enhanced federal funding for Medicaid in 2020. Hatch is the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, one of the panels with ostensible jurisdiction over the bill.

Yanez told Castile that he had had a busted taillight. Castile's family plans to file a civil suit against the St. Anthony cop, who lost his job after the acquittal.

Later in the video, Reynolds 4-year-old daughter leaves the auto by herself when Yanez's partner is seen picking her up.

Yanez fired seven shots into Castile, killing him nearly instantly.

Minneapolis Urban League President Steven Belton says the video showed "a 21st century lynching". And I didn't know where the gun was; he didn't tell me where the f-ing gun was.

- Yanez's reaction. Castile can be seen handing Yanez what prosecutors say was his insurance card - then telling Yanez he also has a gun. Castile hands over the insurance document, just before the interaction quickly devolves into violence. He thought this guy was going to kill him. He had his grip a lot wider than a wallet.

Trump Thinks The Republican Health Care Plan Is "Mean"
They have faced similar internal disagreements between the party's conservatives and moderates like their House colleagues. A recurring line of opposition was that it doesn't fully cover Americans with pre-existing conditions.

The St. Anthony Police Department later announced he would not return to the force. "The city intends to offer Officer Yanez a voluntary separation agreement to help him transition to another career other than being a St. Anthony officer".
