United States officer cleared for fatal shooting of man

Members of the Minnesota State Patrol arrest protesters during a gathering on Interstate 94 after a jury found St. Anthony Police Department officer Jeronimo Yanez not guilty of second-degree manslaughter in the death of Philando Castile, at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul, Minnesota, U.S., June 16, 2017.

Eighteen demonstrators were arrested Saturday in St. Paul, Minnesota, after they blocked one of the city's freeways to protest the police shooting death of a black man. "My son loved this city. And the murderer gets away". Damn. What is it going to take?

The shooting victim's mother, Valeria Castile, gave an emotional speech outside of the Ramsey County Courthouse after the verdict came down and capped it off by saying, "I hope [Yanez] dies tonight!"

Thousands marched in protest over officer Jeronimo Yanez's not guilty verdict.

"Speakers led chants, sang hymns and urged the protesters not to lose hope", CNN reported.

July 6: Castile is fatally shot after Yanez stops his vehicle in Falcon Heights.

Zarif: Intelligence shows S. Arabia promoting terror in Iran's borders
The Leader also noted that the recent accusations by US President Donald Trump over Iran supporting terrorism were preposterous. Iran has accused Saudi Arabia of funding Islamist militants, including IS.

All year long, the country followed the high-profile case, after Philando's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, live-streamed the events on Facebook.

Most of the time there was a buffer between cars and protesters, because several police agencies did traffic control, blocking off side streets and diverting cars around the marchers. "He let the officer know that he had a firearm and that he was reaching for his wallet, and the officer just shot him in his arm". "The system continues to fail black people, and it will continue to fail you all".

According to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the "verdict re-opens old wounds, on top of the scars from past injustices that make so many Black Americans feel that their lives don't matter". Before Castile completed the sentence, Yanez interrupted and replied, "Okay" and placed his right hand on the holster of his gun. But as some Latino leaders have pointed out, specific anti-black racism is indeed an issue in the Latino community.

Much of the incident, in which Castile, 32, was shot in his auto, was streamed live on social media. We can not denounce him without also actively confronting Latinx anti-Blackness.

There were also protests last July after the shooting. He remembered who couldn't have milk. He says the jury sympathizes with Castile's family. The school district said grief counselors will be available to speak to students and staff.

"I didn't ask for this, it fell at my door and I'm going to do anything and everything in my power so that man is prosecuted in some type of way", she said. That said, by arresting 18 protesters, Minnesota authorities have stressed that misconduct during the protest for Castile will not be tolerated. Organizers said the demonstration is meant to be peaceful and children are welcome.
