Minnesota Releases Video of Philando Castile Shooting

On Tuesday, Minnesota authorities released the dash cam footage of the deadly encounter between Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez and black motorist Philando Castile.

The squad-car video shows a wide view of the traffic stop and the shooting, with the camera pointed toward Castile's auto.

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

Castile, a 32-year-old elementary school cafeteria worker, had a permit to carry the weapon. Yanez said, "OK. Don't reach for it then".

At the trial, Yanez testified Castile didn't follow his directions to not reach for the gun, but instead put his hand on a pistol and pulled it out of his trousers pocket.

President Trump mocked the network mercilessly on Twitter Tuesday morning for proving his favorite nickname for them true. On the conservative channel Fox News, reliably pro-Trump pundits Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity jumped on the story.

The shooting death of Philando Castile happened last July during a traffic stop. Her daughter, who was sitting in the backseat, gets out of the auto and walks towards the other officer on the scene. In that video, Diamond Reynolds could be heard saying "police just shot my boyfriend for no apparent reason" while showing Castile soaked in blood.

With the release of the dashcam video, members of the public who didn't attend Yanez's trial could hear the tone in Castile's voice that Ramsey County Attorney John Choi said stuck with him when he deliberated over whether to press charges in the case. The 9-minute video includes audio of Castile clearly stating that he had a firearm in the vehicle before he was shot.

Castile was a licensed gun owner and told Yanez he was carrying a weapon after he gave the officer his insurance.

The video begins with Officer Jeronimo Yanez of the St. Anthony, MN police approaching the vehicle driven by Castile.

"OK, don't reach for it, then; don't pull it out", he responds as his hand starts to go toward his holster. Unlike Reynolds' video, the squad-car video shows the situation's quick escalation and the shooting itself. Reynolds also said in the video that Castile had not been reaching for his gun when he was shot. Yanez says in a more panicked tone.

Seth Meyers mocks 'dummy' Trump for being trolled by Obama
Meyers pointed out, "When you look at the winners and losers of this bill, it is nearly comically villainous". Meyers also updated his viewers on the latest development in Trump's sacking of FBI Director James Comey .

Philando Castile's mother, Valerie Castile, said she was "mad as hell" with the verdict and called Yanez a "murderer".

A jury last week acquitted Yanez.

The acquittal led to renewed protests in Minnesota, with 18 people arrested Saturday after blocking a major highway near the courthouse in the capital city of St Paul.

The city of St. Anthony announced Friday Yanez was being dismissed from its police force, despite the acquittal.

Meanwhile Officer Joseph Kauser can be seen on the other side of the auto.
