In the wake of the killing of Alton Sterling we witnessed new footage of a killing of 32 year old Philando Castile, over a routine traffic stop. The cop reportedly alleged that the car they were driving in had a broken tail light, and asked for Castile’s license and registration upon approaching the vehicle.
According to Reynolds, Castile informed the cop – as he is supposed to – that he was armed, with Reynolds adding that he is licensed to carry. As he reached to produce the documents he was asked for, he was shot “four or five” times and soon died from his injuries.
Today, Reynolds spoke out for the first time since the recorded incident went viral, appearing at a rally in front of Governor Mark Dayton’s residence in St. Paul, MN. Watch the very emotional video below. RIP, Philando Castile.
