Protests over Minnesota police shooting result in 18 arrests on freeway

Police arrested 18 protesters early Saturday as thousands gathered in St. Paul, Minn., after a jury acquitted a police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile.

"I am so disappointed in the state of Minnesota".

Yanez, a 29-year-old Latino officer, stopped Castile, a 32-year-old school cafeteria worker, on July 6 in a St. Paul suburb. Castile had a permit. After nearly a year since the 32-year-old was shot to death in his vehicle by a Minnesota police officer, the case has been closed, resulting in the officer being found not guilty.

Valerie Castile stormed out of court after the not-guilty verdict was read out. Shortly after the verdict, the City of St Anthony said Yanez would not return to active duty and that it was negotiating a "voluntary separation agreement" with him.

Protestors left what was a peaceful demonstration at the State Capitol Friday night and starting walking down the street, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

"There has always been a systemic problem in the state of Minnesota, and me thinking, common sense that we would get justice".

Blocking highways as a form of protest is a common tactic in Minnesota.

Police estimated there were initially about 1,500 people on the freeway.

A police statement said the charges against the 18 included "being a pedestrian on the freeway". He was licensed to carry. Castile's girlfriend, sitting beside him as Yanez fired seven shots, said she recorded video of the scene because she feared that she and her 4-year-old daughter, in the car's rear seat, were in danger. "My son loved this city, and the city killed my son and the murderer gets away".

Yanez testified that Castile was reaching for his gun despite his commands not to pull it out.

The verdict also tells blacks that "the Second Amendment does not apply to them" because Castile "was honest with the officer about having a weapon in the vehicle, and there is no evidence that he attempted to or meant to use the weapon against the officer", the Louisiana Democrat said. While it captures what was said between the two men and shows Yanez firing into the vehicle, it does not show what happened inside the auto or what Yanez might have seen.

When it came time for the groups to share what they had discussed, most reported uncertainty as to how to explain Castile's shooting and Janez's acquittal to their children, as well as how to effect real and lasting change. He declined to say whether he thought Yanez acted appropriately, but said the jury sympathizes with the Castile family.

"He didn't deserve to die the way he did", Philando Castile's sister, Allysza, told reporters, through tears. Another admitted, "I never got to meet him".

Yanez faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the second-degree manslaughter charge, though sentencing guidelines suggest around four years is more likely.

After the jury announced its verdict, Philando's mother, Valerie, made an impassioned speech on the courthouse steps.
