Philando Castile + Alton Sterling
« on: July 07, 2016, 04:57:58 PM »
absolutely sickening.

558 people to date this year (we only in July) killed by police in the US.

Please don't watch the Castile video if you've not already done so. You wont be the same for a while.

The Castile fatality angered a lot of people, seeing that Sterling killing was only the day before. Can't believe these officers still shooting to kill like that despite being in the spot light. Like the sensitivity training ain't wuking.....imagine I've had a few white people ask me if I'm not scared to be a black man in this country given what's been going on.

there are a lot of police officers that, when yuh see how they behave in a stressful situation, should never be holding any kind of power. ah don't know about sensitivity training - that sound like a crock. giving some police a badge and a gun is basically the same as giving a monkey an uzi and expecting a good outcome. difficult to judge who cut out for that kind of job. and the police union will back them all the way. ah haven't seen the videos - not sure i will after hearing the reactions. a few years back here in Toronto they had the dude on the streetcar acting crazy sammy yatim. that vid look like a straight execution - sickening.

the only 'sensitivity' training they put to use is "NEVER say a fellow 'officer" did wrong or criticize them. You never hear one police say ah next police is ah c**t and should never have been allowed to have a badge/weapon.

that is a knot that desperately need untying; the blue wall of silence. now, i remember that movie copland and how police officers have to put each other lives in others hands - definitely is a special situation. but damn, the police as a service look to be unreformable. that is a big problem.

Add Bahrain and United Arab Emirates issuing travel advisory for their nationals visiting/attending school in the US.

Report: Philando Castile Was Pulled Over Because He Matched Description of Suspect With ‘Wide-Set Nose’
Police audio described Castile  as looking like a robbery suspect because of his nose; shots were fired less than two minutes later.

Philando Castile, the 32-year-old St. Paul, Minn., man who was shot and killed by Officer Jeronimo Yanez on July 6, and who has been the impetus for a dozens of police protests across the country, was apparently pulled over by police because he matched the description of a robbery suspect with a “wide-set nose.”

“I’m going to stop a car,” an officer is heard saying in the police audio scanner obtained by news organizations. “I’m going to check IDs. I have reason to pull it over.”

“The two occupants just look like people that were involved in a robbery,” the officer continues. “The driver looks like one of our suspects because of the wide-set nose.”

A full minute and a half after the dispatch, another call came in: “Shots fired! Larpenteur and Fry.”

Though initial reports indicate that Castile was pulled over for a broken taillight, it appears that Castile was profiled because he matched the description of a man with a big nose.

Castile was reportedly pulled over more than 50 times in Minnesota before his deadly encounter with police.

Both Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, who was with Castile in the car when it was pulled over, and his uncle, Clarence Castile, weighed in on the recently released audio, which police have not commented on yet.

When asked if she heard the audio from the scanner, Reynolds said that she did, but said to 11Alive, “Yes, but we didn’t fit any of the descriptions.”

Castile’s uncle, though, was more forthright: “It’s kind of hard to see flared nostrils from a car,” he said. “But I don’t think that’s any excuse to pull anyone over and then wind up dead behind that.”

He added, “What we have to do is get my nephew buried and laid to rest in a good and honorable way. When that’s done, that’s when the fight begins. Then we’re going to start working to get serious justice.”

Police have not yet confirmed what robbery the original audio referred to.
