This video is friggin nuts!
Seriously, watch it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Just before we get into this, yes, the Black is apparently driving a car imported from Britain with the steering column on the right side. At first I thought the video had been flipped, but you can see traffic is flowing on the right side. Also, yes, the guy does appear to have been named after the Black guy in Star Wars.
UPDATE/CORRECTION: It looks like maybe she was recording this with the front camera, which is why the steering wheel is on the wrong side (which means he’s pulled over onto the wrong side of the road, or it’s a one-way street). He’s still named after the Black guy in Star Wars.
Barely a day after the fatal police shooting of unarmed Alton Sterling in Louisiana, it has been confirmed that police have shot dead another African-American, this time in Minnesota. A horrific video shot by his girlfriend details the aftermath.
Philando Castile, 32, of Falcon Heights succumbed to his wounds later at Hennepin County Medical Center, according to his mother Valerie Castle, WCCO reports.
Castile was driving and his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds was in the passenger when they were pulled over for a broken taillight. Reynolds’ 4-year-old daughter was in the back seat.
What followed was the officer asking Castile to produce some ID and a driver’s license.
Reynolds then says that, as Castile reached for his wallet, he informed the police officer immediately that he was also carrying a firearm, but had a conceal-and-carry permit for it. The officer then panicked, she says, and emptied four shots into the man, according to WCCO.
The video Reynolds shot of the incident takes place immediately after the shooting. It shows an unconscious Castle with blood all over his white t-shirt. The officer has his gun cocked, visibly in a state of total panic and shouting the following: “I told him not to reach for it! I told him to get his hand out…”
Reynolds somehow manages to keep her composure through the tears and films the conversation, as she addresses the cop. “You told him to get his I.D., sir, his driver’s license.” Her camera shows the cop still standing by the driver’s window with his gun.
Somehow manages. Yes.
You could write a book about it. Black people have an incredible ability to deal with violence.
You see the 4-year-old in the video and she is not even crying. She’s just like “ayyyyy lmao.”
This is an evolutionary mechanism. In Africa, the only people who passed on their genes were ones who dealt extremely well with violence.
“Oh my God, please don’t tell me he’s dead. Please don’t tell me my boyfriend just went like that,” she says, panning the camera slightly to her boyfriend. The officer, his gun still drawn and voice shaking, says: “Keep your hands where they are.”
“Yes, I will, sir,” she replies. “I’ll keep my hands where they are.”
By then, several officers have arrived at the scene. Reynolds is told to get out of her car, as their guns are pointed toward her. An officer was by then holding her daughter in his arms.
The video of the immediate aftermath of the shooting is being circulated online.
Castlie’s mother told WCCO her son Philando worked as a school cafeteria supervisor in St. Paul. He was due to turn 33 this Friday.
She says the cop is Chinese. Black people call all Asians “Chinese,” but whatever he is, he isn’t White. Which might mean this won’t amount to much.
Although in this situation, the cop was probably in the wrong. We don’t know exactly what happened. And surely, seeing a Black guy reaching in his pocket would scare anyone. But at the very least, four shots was a nip-bit excessive.
The cop shouldn’t be charged with a crime. Although I’m certain he will be. But firing him would probably be in order. The situation showed he wasn’t prepared for the pressure. You can see him freaking out afterward, confirming this.
The Jew Jill Stein has already declared this to be a “public execution over a broken taillight.”
Less than 24 hrs later another casualty: #PhilandoCastile. There is no excuse for public execution over a broken tail light. This must end.

That will obviously be the narrative moving forward.
The Blacks organized on the street last night.
Tears and powerless outrage are taking over in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, after yet another police shooting of an African-American.
The Minnesota governor was evacuated from his mansion as the crowd outside grew, according to reports online. Some 200+ people first gathered near the place where Philando Castile was shot and killed by a police officer. The gathering was said to be peaceful.
As it grew in number, the crowd moved to the Minnesota Governor’s mansion in St. Paul, shouting and honking their car horns. Reports indicate the governor, Mark Dayton, has been evacuated by police.
“No justice, no sleep,” they chanted at the mansion’s gate. “Mark Dayton, do you care?”

If the cop had been White, I would definitely say you all need to prepare for full-on race war.
Now, I will just say you probably need to prepare for that.
It’s hot outside and the Blacks are angry. The media is provoking them like nothing we’ve ever seen, telling them they’re being genocided.
Things could get very heavy very quickly.
