I was sure he was toast.
So what time are the riots scheduled for?
What's that I smell?
Is that the smell of burning cities and tear gas in the near future...
What time does the sun go down there????
Did they ever determine if he and his friend were the ones who robbed the convenience store?
I think you're thinking of Michael Brown.
This was a case driven by social media. Facts be $&@&$. This Officers life ruined because (mostly) media.
This driver had been pulled over how many times ?. Drugs, alcohol, prior vids of drinking, drugs, gal, child in car...
You don't play stupid games with Police you don't get shot.
Justice! Thank god for LEO's They are the rock stars of our society. Now if we could just get them paid what they are worth!
Let's burn this ***** down!
But but but the cop is not white!!!
Unsurprising, in the long run, when you consider how judges carefully explain laws, and how they're to be properly applied, and reasonable people look at facts and supported evidence when acting as judges of facts and evidence.
Also, as was just explained at great length to the potential jury pool in which I sat (not selected as a juror), it's up to jurors to carefully consider the credibility (including honesty) of anyone offering testimony, and then decide for themselves who they find credible, especially if differing witness statements are presented.
It appears that in this case, reasonable jurors followed the law and didn't believe the defendant was guilty, beyond a reasonable doubt, of the crimes being charged.
That's how it's supposed to work. It's not about getting retribution for perceived injustices. That's not how a blind justice system is supposed to work, no matter how someone "feels" about something.
Perhaps. I get my gunned down hero's of the black community confused from time to time.
Officer Mistook Philando Castile for a Robbery Suspect, Tapes Show
That robbery case remains open, so I case that means it wasn't Philando. But, yes the officer thought he was the suspect or at least said so when this thing really kicked off.
Statement from the City of St. Anthony
June 16, 2017
The City of St. Anthony has concluded that the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city. 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. The terms of this agreement will be negotiated in the near future, so details are not available at this time. In the meantime, Officer Yanez will not return to active duty.
Oh, okay. Well, far be it for me to try to apply logic to crooks, but if I was a crook, I probably wouldn't do that with my girlfriend and kid in the getaway car. Again, that's me applying logic.
Yet another Career/Occupation ended to appease a certain mass.

politicos and all, working in government for the people, should be fired instantly for not backing up police and the military. this has to be THE biggest crime against America in today's world
Yeah, if you are going to reach for your gun, you might want to follow the officer's instructions first.
Do we know what happened before the video? The girlfriend said the officer asked for his ID and when he went for it, the officer fired. Did the cop catch a glimpse of the gun?
I like to side with law enforcement, but they do seem to get away with a lot more than a regular citizen.
If you are interested there's tons of info out there in this incident just a Google Search away.
St Paul Pioneer Press has a lot of coverage.
