Philando Castile Death: Police Officer Found Not Guilty


Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

 

A Minnesota police officer who shot dead a black man during a traffic stop has been found not guilty.

 

Jeronimo Yanez fatally wounded Philando Castile after he stopped his car in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, in July 2016.

 

Mr Castile's dying moments were caught on camera by his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, who live-streamed the aftermath on Facebook.

 

Speaking on Friday, his mother Valerie said the verdict proved "the system continues to fail black people".

 

The case - one of a series of deaths of black men and boys at the hands of US police - prompted widespread outrage and protests in St Paul.

 

Ms Reynolds' video, which showed him covered in blood as an officer pointed his gun at him, was viewed by millions around the world.

 

She said afterwards her boyfriend had been reaching for his licence when he was shot by the policeman.

 

Officer Yanez, 29, was charged with second-degree manslaughter in November.

 

It was the first time a police officer had been charged with the death of a citizen in Minnesota, according to Judge Glenda Hatchett, who represented Mr Castile's family.

 

Officer Yanez told the court he was afraid for his life and said Mr Castile did not follow his orders - but prosecutors argued Mr Castile was courteous and non-threatening.

 

After 30 hours of deliberation on Friday, he was cleared of second-degree manslaughter and two felony counts of intentional discharge of a dangerous weapon for endangering the safety of Ms Reynolds and her daughter, four.

 

Valerie Castile told reporters outside the courthouse: "I'm mad as hell right now. Yes, I am.

 

"The system continues to fail black people."

 

She added: "I am so disappointed in the state of Minnesota. My son loved this state, my son loved this city and this city killed my son."

 

But Earl Gray, who was representing officer Yanez, told Reuters news agency "justice was done".

 

"We're very happy," he said. "Yanez was innocent. He was just doing his job."

 

However, Officer Yanez will not be returning to work for the City of St Anthony police department.

 

A statement on the city's website said it had "concluded that the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city".
