    from what i see, i'd assume yanez was in the wrong. but i really want to watch the prosecution before i make my judgement, i dont think it's healthy for people to act as if "they are the law" and that their judgement alone is the only valid one

    this is bullshit, she showed no evidence whatsoever to suggest Castille was shot because of the color of his skin. Yanez was incompetent, that is a fact. By claiming this is racism you are not solving the problem, you are just creating division. The real question we should be asking is how someone as incompetant as yanez could be allowed to become a cop

    if these people want to stop police violence they need to stop black crime. If there is less crime, there are less cops, and if there are less cops, there is less abuse by the cops. If you want less crime, you need more opportunity, and if you want that, then you probably shouldn't be voting democrat

    people complaining about the racial makeup of the jury are fucking racist. Are you presuming that white people are incapable of seeing injustice against minorities? if so then why were there so many white people in the protests?

    no.. it's time out for protesting, we should start suing the police benevolence fund, the police unions, the policemen's personal homeowners insurance and the neighborhood where they live, and stop suing the black cities where they are murdering our young black men.. when we sue our own cities we are taking monies from our own pocket.. take the money from them. thats the only thing white people relate and respond to. make them pay not your city and neighborhood.

    The only thing sadder than the death of this brother is the reaction of caucasians. The apathy of these people shows them to be Beast and we should be demanding to be left alone far away from these Devils we cannot coexist with such beings! What human wants to live with a bloodthirsty warmongering animal? None!

    Old lady Castile is a racist.  Anyone who names their kid Philando should be locked up.

    Why don't the two black coons in the Jury come out and speak for themselves? why are they hiding?

    Tragic! Everyone who took part in this unjust verdict have innocent blood on their hands! Who cares about the jurists' "FEELINGS"! Welcome to "Justice" for a few. Not Wealthy? You will not get justice.

    Marching and protesting don't mean shit. Boycott Black Friday thru Monday. Send a REAL message. Didn't matter that two Blacks were on jury. A Colonized Black mind is just as dangerous as a delusional white mind. Maybe more so. Time to stand up Black people. Shut Black Friday Down. No stores, no internet buying. Shut it down.

    10 white jurors; 1 young Ethiopian & a black juror. I guess Yanez reaped the benefits of white privilege.

    With States and cities that are being Gentrified you will always find violent Militarized police forces. In fact you will find MORE violent police in so called White Liberal communities.

    The stupidity of continuing to reach into your pocket when explicitly told by an officer not to is too astounding to believe. Seems more like a desperate attempt to take out the cop. Didn't work out, fortunately.

    if a similar situation occurred with a WHITE victim (sometimes cops unfairly shoot whites too) the NRA would express great outrage. If he had a LICENSE for that gun why the hell did the NRA not speak up? is the NRA similar to the KKK?

    Over and over again this continues to happen to our brothers and sisters we are all human. Racism is man made. and it is up to us to change it. we have to stop this from continuing to happen. Police are not judge and jury. to the family of Mr. Castile  I love you I may never share a meal with you or meet your children but I love you and if I ever get the chance I will stand with you at the front lines fighting back against the powerful who put your people both in jail and in the ground. And to all you white supremacist, do one good thing in your life and shut up don't comment on these videos don't attack these families keep your bullshit hate spreading uneducated opinions to yourself. let these families grieve. WE ARE ALL IN THIS LIFE TOGETHER

    What is the protocol for police officer when there is a gun in the car? I know it's not shoot the person! He shot this man in cold blood. I have watched the video over and over…not once did the cop ask the man to step out of vehicle or to give him the gun that was in the car. I KNOW THERE IS A PROTOCOL..and this policeman did not use protocol.. period!

    Minnesota, historically has been extremely white. I thought that was changing in the 90's, seeing more people of color and mixed families there, but I guess that doesn't matter.The Twin Cities is considered to be a liberal, progressive place– on paper, it's a show.They are so backwards, they need to pull their heads out of their asses.This is so beyond shameful it's disgusting! I do sincerely hope Nekima Levy-Pounds wins the mayoral race. They need to open their eyes and start seeing the world as it really is.

    The problem is there are real consequences if a good cop rats out a bad cop. They can at worst get fired, or have other officers turn on them or refuse to back them up if they get into trouble. It's usually the bad cops that get promoted or move up the ladder. The system is too entrenched to look at it at that level. A cop that wants to be a "good cop" would have to sign-up for potentially being harassed, losing his job or means to support his family, being branded a n-lover, and being targeted. If they choose that road, then they are truly good cop because they are choosing to do the right thing.

    Since the government will NOT hold their enforcers the police, cus thats what they are, not here to protect and serve but to regulate, the onus is on the community to protect itself from threats and violence perpetrated by the state and the police. It's time to radicalize in our neighborhoods and get some armed watches going and protect ourselves..

    From my experience all young black peoples seem to act like a bunch of coons. Oh boy!, African immigrants are the biggest coons of them all. Only coons and racists say "they don't see colour".

    Here's the problem with her argument… Look at statistics Black men are more likely to kill other Black men and White men… Just look at the numbers… yes, it's due to poverty… but look at the crime statistics which I'm sure most cops have read. So obviously every encounter with a person especially in the United States with or without guns the citizen having a gun is dangerous since the officer doesn't know who he is encountering… I'm no way justifying it, but just saying there are two sides to every story.
