Minnesota Releases Dashcam Footage of Philando Castile Shooting

Minnesota Releases Dashcam Footage of Philando Castile Shooting”

Last week, Yanez was acquitted for Castile's murder. "Are you kidding me right now?"

Yanez said he was anxious that Castile may be carrying a weapon for protection from drug dealers or others trying to "rip" or steal from him.

Off-camera, Officer Yanez is heard talking through his body microphone telling a supervisor that he did not know where Mr Castile's gun was, then saying that he told Mr Castile to get his hand off the weapon.

"People are not protected against the police", she said Yanez's trial. Prosecutors contend Castile wasn't going for his gun and Yanez never saw it.

Yanez proceeds to reach into the vehicle and fire seven bullets, killing Castile.

She sobbed and continued begging her mother to calm down. The dashcam video shows how quickly a simple traffic stop spiraled into a deadly incident.

Yanez: "Don't pull it out!".

The video shows the mundane moments that led up to the shooting: Yanez pointing out that Castile's brake lights were broken, Castile calmly telling the officer that there was a legally registered gun in the vehicle. After shots were fired, you see Yanez standing at the driver's side door with his gun still pointed at Castile, as he frantically yells to "get the baby girl out the vehicle". But a mostly white jury found him not guilty of the charges.

The dashcam video is around 10 minutes long.

Sampsell-Jones says it is "understandable why the jury couldn't find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt".

The conversation lasts just eight seconds, with Yanez interrupting twice saying, "Don't pull it out".

Jurors deliberated 27 hours and heard two weeks of testimony about the July 6 traffic stop, in which Yanez pulled over a vehicle driven by Castile, 32, with his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter as passengers.

It was a first - a Facebook Live of the tail end of a Minnesota police officer fatally shooting motorist Philando Castile.

Also on Tuesday, Castile's family announced it would sue the St. Anthony police department in civil court.

When the traffic stop began, the two men interacted calmly.

The footage was among several critical pieces of evidence included in the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigative file that were made public late Tuesday afternoon.

As more police and an ambulance arrived, Officer Yanez could be heard breathing heavily and swearing and trying to explain his actions to fellow officers.

What follows is a tragedy as we hear continuous shots being fired at Philando Castile. He had a permit for it. The footage was shown to jurors during the trial and reportedly again upon request during deliberation.

Hatchett also discussed the Philando Castile Relief Foundation, which she said has already "given out scholarships in his honor".

Rev. Laurie Bushbaum, a Unitarian minister, carried a sign that showed how she felt about the Yanez verdict during a demonstration, Sunday, June 18, 2017, in St. Anthony, Minn.
