As has been widely reported, Philando Castile was shot by a St. Anthony, MN Police Officer on Wednesday, July 6.
Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, live-streamed what occurred after he was shot, and provided her own narrative to millions of viewers. Now, what Reynolds told everyone, is being contradicted by official police transcripts and testimonies.
In the wake of Castile’s death, and that of Alton Sterling, everyone from Obama, to the governor of Minnesota, liberal media, and Black Lives Matter, spun a story to the nation that racist white cops were killing innocent, do-gooder blacks in genocidal proportions.
The result of that story being told was the deaths of 5 Dallas cops, with 7 others shot and wounded.
And now it’s turning out that every single piece of the story… was a lie.
Reynolds told the world that Castile was pulled over for a broken taillight. That now has been proven to be false.
A witness took video of Castile’s car after he had been shot. Both taillights were working.
According to newly released police scanner audio, Castile was pulled over because officers believed he looked like an armed robbery suspect. A citizen turned the audio recording over to KARE 11 in St. Paul, MN. KARE 11 confirmed that the license plate mentioned in the recording matched Castile’s.
Transcript of the audio is as follows:
“I’m going to stop a car. 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 driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ‘cause of the wide set nose.”
Here’s the recording on a KARE 11 video:
KARE 11 reported:
It’s unclear which robbery the officer was referring to when he said Mr. Castile looked like a suspect. But the BCA had sent out a press release earlier this week saying St. Anthony police were investigating a gas station robbery that occurred in nearby Lauderdale on July 2.
Here’s the suspect from the July 2 robbery that police were looking for. East Side Review News published news of the robbery.
Castile compared to the suspect.
Finally, Reynolds said during her live-stream that Castile was merely pulling out his I.D. like the officer asked him to when he was shot.
An attorney for the officer said today that he fired because Castile displayed a gun.
USA Today reported:
Jeronimo Yanez, the police officer who killed a black driver during a suburban Minnesota traffic stop this week, reacted to the man’s gun — not his race — his attorney said Saturday.
St. Anthony Police Officer Yanez was reacting to “the presence of that gun and the display of that gun” when he opened fire on and killed Philando Castile, Minneapolis attorney Thomas Kelly told the Associated Press in an interview Saturday.
In Reynold’s live-stream video, officer Yanez can be heard saying, “F-CK! I told him not to reach for it! I told him to get his hand out!!!,” contradicting Reynold’s claim that Castile was merely getting out his I.D.
A screen grab from Reynold’s video appears to show the firearm.
Of course, we reported earlier that Castile was a Black Panthers supporter who advocated violence against police, and belonged to a ‘Crips’ gang group on Facebook.
Once the whole truth is known, Obama, liberal media heads, the governor of Minnesota, and all the others who pushed the false narrative that Castile’s death was at the hands of a “racist” cop, should be charged with the deaths of the 5 Dallas police officers.
If found guilty, I believe they should receive the death penalty.
