Dashcam video shows officer firing 7 shots into Castile car

Chris Juhn  MSR News Valerie Castile speaking to the media outside of the courthouse

He fired seven shots at Castile just seconds after the 32-year-old said he had a gun. "He was compliant. He wasn't resisting, and at the end of the day, this was a traffic stop".

Jeronimo Yanez killed Philando Castile after pulling him over for a broken light in Falcon Heights while riding with his girlfriend and child on July 6 a year ago. That alleged action can not be seen in the footage released Tuesday and Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, testified at trial that he never reached for the handgun he was licensed to carry. Yanez continues, saying "I don't know where the gun was".

In the video, Yanez tells Castile that he's being pulled over because he has a brake light out.

"He [Castile] was sitting in the vehicle, seat belted".

"I'm not pulling it out", Castile says. Yanez again yelled: "Don't pull it out!".

Australia in need of more composure after Germany loss - Ange Postecoglou
Contrary to assertions from coach Ange Postecoglou before the game, the Australian side was marginally older than its opponent. Germany face Group B leaders Chile on Thursday evening (8pm) in Kazan, while Australia take on bottom club Cameroon (4pm).

"Don't pull it out!". "It's interesting how the people who define themselves by one fundamental American right - the right to bear arms - show that once racism is involved, the only right that they believe in is their right to remain silent".

"Every time I watch that video [of Castile's murder, which was livestreamed on Facebook by his girlfriend] the question I ask myself is how", Noah begins.

Unlike Reynolds' video, the squad-car video shows the situation's quick escalation and the shooting itself. It is unfathomable to me that any member of the jury could have watched that video - not once, but multiple times - and reached the conclusion that Officer Yanez was justified in killing Philando Castile. Reynolds' then-4-year-old daughter starts to get out of the auto and is grabbed by an officer.

The footage was among several critical pieces of evidence included in the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigative file that was made public late Tuesday afternoon.

The video includes audio from a microphone Yanez was wearing and a conversation he had with his supervisor about the shooting.

Burling, Kiwis beat Oracle third time in America's Cup
Team New Zealand crushed Oracle in the second race of the day by more than a minute. The always-crafty Kiwis are using a "cyclor" grinding system.

Yanez gives a brief explanation of the events to a supervising officer on the scene. "Officer Yanez had an unreasonable fear of Philando Castile as a black man". At that moment, Yanez can be seen starting to pull his weapon from his holster with his right hand. "And he was pulling it out with his right hand". I'm going to take your spot. "And I thought I was gonna die".

The agency that investigated the incident will make its case file public today (Tuesday) including dashcam video of the shooting.

"I mean (we) looked at the prosecution's side, and as far as I was concerned, they didn't prove their case", Ploussard said. Yanez calmly responds, "Okay".

The dashboard camera video from the officer's patrol auto has been described by many but viewed by only by a few people - investigators, the jury and courtroom spectators.

"The officer's judged by what he or she reasonably sees or perceives", said David J. MacMain, a former Pennsylvania state trooper and attorney who represents law enforcement officers in civil cases. The video was among the evidence gathered in the investigation and used in the trial.

Johnson agrees to 3-year extension with Hendrick Motorsports
Eight championships, I would love to stand alone at that, but that is all predictable and easy stuff. Jimmie Johnson isn't going anywhere, and he isn't hanging up his helmet just yet.

Bekuh Sibet, a 29-year-old waitress from nearby Richfield, said it was obvious to her from the video that Castile was complying. I don't know if it was in his pocket or in between the seats or the center console. "But it doesn't show the actual shooting".
