Some more to say on this as I've been at ground zero around so much of this - but this is good news and welcome news:
In a stunning decision that shook police and protesters alike, the officer who fatally shot Philando Castile was charged with manslaughter in his death — likely the first Minnesota officer in modern memory charged for such an incident.
“Unreasonable fear cannot justify the use of deadly force,” Ramsey County attorney John Choi said Wednesday during a news conference in which he announced he was charging St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez, 28, with second-degree manslaughter for Castile’s death, and with two felony counts of dangerous discharge of a firearm for endangering the two other people in Castile’s car.
“My conscience tells me it would be wrong for me to ask a grand jury to make this decision when I know in my heart what needs to be done … In order to achieve justice, we must be willing to do the right thing.”
Helicopters - can you stop buzzing me at some point please?
