  • The Philando Castile Verdict Was a Miscarriage of Justice

Demonstrators hold signs as they as they block traffic on Interstate 94 in St. Paul, Minn., after leaving a vigil at the state Capitol on Friday, June 16, 2017.

According to CNN, 18 protesters were arrested for demonstrating on a highway and failing to disperse when ordered.

Both were in the vehicle when the officer shot Castile during a traffic stop on July 6 of past year.

Mr Castile had reportedly been reaching for his wallet but the officer testified that Mr Castile was ignoring his commands not to pull out the gun and he feared for his life.

An estimated 2,000 people were on the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota on June 17, shedding tears in peaceful protest of the Castile trial.

Yanez pulled Castile over in July because he reportedly matched the description of a burglar suspect. "Are you kidding me right now?"

"I can feel her pain", Holmes said on Sunday to a few hundred people gathered at 53rd Street and King Drive in Washington Park for a rally to protest the verdict in Castile's case.

"I don't doubt that Officer Yanez is a decent person, but he made a awful mistake from our perspective, and that's what this case was about".

Yanez, who is Latino, testified he stopped Castile in a suburb of St. Paul, Falcon Heights, because he thought Castile resembled someone who robbed a nearby store several days earlier.

Questioned by his defense attorney during the trial, Yanez said: "I was scared to death".

The evidence included squad auto video, but its wide view didn't capture exactly what happened inside the vehicle. Castile's family claimed he was profiled because of his race, and the shooting renewed concerns about how police officers interact with minorities.

The shooting death of Castile, 32, triggered local protests and fuelled debate across the U.S. over the appropriate use of force by law enforcement against minorities.

"It was what I was expecting", she said.

ABC News has the story of the acquittal of the police officer who was accused of second-degree manslaughter.

Castile's mother, who attended court that day with her family, stood outside the courthouse and said to the assembled crowd, "My son loved this city, and this city killed my son".

"People have died for us to have these rights and now we're devolving", she said.

Anyone could see the aftermath, and millions did: When Philando Castile was shot and killed by a Minnesota police officer during what started as a traffic stop on July 6, 2016, his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, whipped out her phone to live stream what came next.

Protesters marched on Interstate 94, blocking traffic in both directions. "God help America", Reynolds said in a statement Friday. Yanez was innocent. He was just doing his job'.

"Because if the government can take your life and no one is held responsible, you are a second-class citizen, if not fully dehumanized in the eyes of the law", she said.

But according to one of the jurors who found Yanez not guilty on Friday, even the jury's black members said Yanez was legally justified in his decision to use lethal force against Castile.
