Ramsey County, Minnesota, has released the dashcam footage from Officer Jeronimo Yanez's police car the day he shot Philando Castile. It is above. Be a witness as Officer Janez unloads his weapon into Castile's body. Be a witness as the officer screams and shrieks in horror at what he's done, but not enough horror that he doesn't decide to take "one adult female into custody" for as little reason as he killed her boyfriend. Witness the second cop beating feet when the shots go off -- were there only five? it seemed like a hundred -- but at least coming back to scoop up the baby and get her away from the car. That's nice I guess. A nice thing. Take the baby away from the car. I guess.

No words. Except "we are doomed". What a fucking world.
supposedly going around a corner too fast. yeah.
almost sounds like someone was looking to confront, ifyaknowhatimean...you may have been luckier than you first realised
wow....this is about as fucked up as it gets...we are truly broken
The real reason the cop shot Philando?Philando smelled like he was smoking pot right in front of his little girl, so the cop shot him because . . . marijuana smoke?And the jury bought this line of reasoning.
My thought, also too.
Janez had no business being a police officer.
Better late than never.
There is something that just creeps me out about snipers...military or cops. The idea that there are people among us that could, if they wanted to, pick one or more of us off from 200 yards gives me the willies.
Murdering is always OK is if it's a black person using the constitution for stuff.

Really? But your fine with conspiracy bullsh** from the poster and Ms. Stein.
Refute your baseless claim? The burden of proof is on you to demonstrate it your affirmative assertion. Just because you make an unsupported assertion doesn't make it so, other than in your own head. That's how it works. So GTFO.
No, cops are not taught to shoot to wound. Teaching someone to "shoot to wound" is the same as teaching them to "shoot to miss".
What cops need to be taught is "WHEN NOT TO SHOOT". I'm at the point where I say take their guns, and do like the UK with armed units nearby who can respond to these situations.
While you are correct the problem goes beyond skin tone, there is a point to be made about the power these officers of color get to share in by upholding a power structure that privileges whiteness.
