A woman by name of Lavish Reynolds was driving with Philando Castile and a young child in Falcon Heights, Minnesota on Wednesday when his car was pulled over for a broken taillight according to Ms. Reynolds. During the traffic stop, according to Ms. Reynolds, her boyfriend advised the officer he was carrying a firearm and was licensed to do so and was going to reach into his pocket to obtain his drivers license and registration. She states that when he was reaching into his pocket, the officer warned him to stop and according to Ms. Reynolds Philando put his hands back up, but the cop still show him several times.
Castile died after being taken to a local hospital. In the video, you can hear the officer say “I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand out.”
As you can imagine, the BLM movement is in full swing over this shit show. WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW THE EVENTS REALLY WENT DOWN. The only evidence that we have to make assumptions off of is a live video posted to facebook that started AFTER the shooting occurred. There is an official investigation occurring at this time in regards to this matter.
