*In the minutes after Philando Castile was shot by then officer Jeronimo Yanez, the two other passengers, Diamond Reynolds and her daughter, were placed in the back of a squad car and the just-released video of them will tear your heart apart.
As the world knows, Reynolds broadcast the aftermath of the July 2016 police shooting on Facebook Live. Her then 4-year-old daughter was sitting in the back seat of the car during the shooting, and afterward police put them both in custody.
In this video authorities just released … Reynolds is still screaming in anger in the back of the police cruiser — and the little girl cries, “Mom, please don’t scream ’cause I don’t want you to get shooted!”
She sobbed and continued begging her mother to calm down.
Yanez’s trial ended last week. A jury found him not guilty of manslaughter.

*After watching the video of Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile, all we say is damn, damn, damn. 🙁

When the traffic stop began, the two men interacted calmly. Officer Jeronimo Yanez, a police officer in the Twin Cities suburbs, greeted Castile and examined his insurance card.
“Sir, I have to tell you that I do have a firearm on me,” Castile said 30 seconds after they began speaking.
“Okay,” Yanez interrupted his voice remaining steady as he shifted his right hand onto the holster of his gun.
