A city councilman walks back a racist tweet about Diamond Reynolds after learning that she reached a $800,000 settlement.
When you watch the disturbing police dash cam video of the fatal shooting of Philando Castile, you will wonder just how a jury could acquit St. Anthony, Minnesota, police officer Jeronimo Yanez. But this is America, a country founded on racial oppression, right?
Diamond Reynolds, the girlfriend of Philando Castile, was arrested and charged in relation to a hammer attack on a woman in St. Paul.
The family of Philando Castile welcomed the charges against the cop who shot and killed the 32-year-old, but his girlfriend believes "the highest charge was not brought against him."
Reynolds remained vigilant that Castile did two things--followed proper protocol and informed the responding officer that he was in possession of a firearm. Reynolds repeatedly says he never brandished the weapon at any point during the traffic stop.
