Following yet another acquittal of a cop who killed an unarmed black man, has the mother of the deceased taken to social media to offer her raw unfiltered response on the court’s verdict.
St. Anthony police officer, Jeronimo Yanez, was seen in a Facebook Live video shooting Philando Castile during a traffic stop. Yanez was officially charged with second-degree manslaughter and two felony counts of dangerous discharge of a firearm last November.
However, despite the video evidence of Philando Castile being murdered in cold blood by the officer, Yanez was acquitted of any wrongdoing whatsoever this past week. The jury consists of 10 white people and 2 black people. According to them, officer Jeronimo Yanez did exactly what he was supposed to do when we saw him shoot unarmed Castile while he sat in the car with his girlfriend.
But Philando’s mother, Valerie Castile, isn’t going down without giving the system a piece of her mind. Valerie had already given a passionate speech at a televised press conference, where she spoke truth behind America’s scarred history with the black community.
But Valerie saved her real thoughts for Facebook Live. She let it ALL out on the cops and the shady justice system.
