Castile protesters target city where officer worked

A Minnesota police officer was cleare.

Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy with a pellet gun tucked into his waistband, was fatally shot by a white Cleveland police officer in November 2014.

Thousands of people gathered Friday evening at the state Capitol to protest the eventual verdict.

During Yanez's trial, lawyers argued he panicked and lost control.

Mr Castile's girlfriend Diamond Reynolds filmed his dying moments and streamed the footage live on Facebook. Officer Jeronimo Yanez, who is Latino, was acquitted Friday of manslaughter and two lesser charges.

Theresa St. Aoro brought flowers Friday to the spot in Falcon Heights, outside Minneapolis, where Castile was shot.

Yanez killed Castile in his auto last year while his fiance, Diamond Reynolds, and 4-year-old daughter were sitting in the vehicle. Reynolds livestreams the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook. Supporters of Philando Castile hold a portrait of Castile as they march along University Avenue in St. Paul, Minn., leaving a vigil at the state Capitol on Friday, June 16, 2017. Prosecutors said Castile's last words were, "I wasn't reaching for it".

"At 1:30 a.m. Saturday, a few dozen protesters had gathered in front of the Governor's Residence, the site of a almost three-week encampment after Castile's death last summer".

But Ramsey County Attorney John Choi, who filed charges against the officer, declared such fear unreasonable. In light of the officer's clearance, black gun owners are concerned about admitting they are licensed to carry to police officers, reports NBC Washington. By early Saturday morning, at least 18 people had been arrested for failing to leave the freeway. Police say 21 officers were hurt, none seriously. The next few minutes resulted in the shooting of Castile, in which Yanez discharged his firearm four times, striking Castile in the arm and side. The Washington Post reported that the jury decision came nearly a year after Castile's death.

The Paisley-based playcaller added: "We know where we need to improve and we will". "No one gave us a hope when we got here. Even though India pocketed a comfortable 4-1 win over lowly Scotland on Thursday, it was far from impressive at the start.

After the rally, police said roughly 2,000 people marched peacefully down streets in the capital St Paul, at times blocking traffic at intersections and then on Interstate 94, a major highway.

September 28: The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says it has completed its investigation and turned over its findings to Choi.

In November, just 4 months after the shooting death of Philando Castile, Jeronimo Yanez was charged with second-degree manslaughter. No charges were filed in that case. The review, still ongoing, includes an assessment of traffic stops and arrest demographics.

"We would like to see if this could go to a federal court".

January 4: Ramsey County District Court Judge William Leary III, who is white, is assigned to preside over Yanez's manslaughter trial. No video existed of exactly what happened inside the auto.

January 11: A judge throws out riot charges against dozens of people who blocked I-94 to protest the shooting.

Protester Maya yells at law enforcement officers during a protest after the verdict. It played a prominent role in last-minute budget negotiations but did not pass.

Valerie Castile spoke about her son outside the courthouse following the verdict.

Thompson says it's hard for him to enjoy his Father's Day knowing his friend never got a chance to have a child and his mother will never have a grandchild by her only son. Yanez yelled, "Don't move!"
