Police Dash-cam Video Released in Shooting of Philando Castile

Police Dash-cam Video Released in Shooting of Philando Castile

Video contains graphic footage that may be disturbing to viewers.

The 10-minute video, which was released by Ramsey County in Minnesota, shows Yanez driving behind the white sedan Castile was driving before pulling him over.

"Sir, I have to tell you that I do have a firearm on me", Philando Castile tells Officer Jeronimo Yanez seconds before he is shot multiple times.

"Okay, don't reach for it then", Yanez said.

Jeronimo Yanez killed Philando Castile after pulling him over for a broken light in Falcon Heights while riding with his girlfriend and child on July 6 a year ago.

Yanez was found not guilty of second degree manslaughter last week and the St. Anthony Police Department announced that he had been fired from his job.

If a soft Brexit is on the cards, it would give hope to those who saw these ties as important or wanted to remain in the bloc. She also accepted in the meeting that her authority was "extremely fractured" and she was no longer "calling the shots".

A transcript of the interview was released on Tuesday along with dash cam footage of the moment Yanez fired into Castile's auto seven times, killing him. At the trial, Yanez said he "was able to see the firearm in Mr. Castile's hand". Yanez told investigators the next day that he believed he saw Castile pulling out a gun.

Yanez's trial ended last week. Castile can be heard screaming as the shots ring out and says in agony "I wasn't reaching" as the officer begins to yell "fuck" again and again.

He can be seen firing seven shots, total - all of which were aimed at Castile as he sat inside his auto. At the time, Castile was sitting in his vehicle with his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter.

After the shooting, the video shows Yanez standing at the vehicle window, breathing heavily and cursing repeatedly, with his gun drawn for some time.

Yanez shot Castile, 32, five times during a traffic stop in the St. Paul suburb of Falcon Heights. Yanez is then heard asking for insurance and identification. Castile's girlfriend has insisted her boyfriend was reaching for documentation the officer asked him for. He went on to say, "Whenever I get pulled over, the first thing I do is throw my arms out the window". Yanez can be heard talking to other officers, who are asking him questions. While the video only told one side of the story, it certainly enraged a good number of people who felt, and still feel, that police brutality in America, directed towards African Americans in particular, must stop.
