Last week, a Minnesota jury found St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez not guilty in the 2016 shooting of Philando Castile. This week, they released the dashcam footage leading one to question just how blinded the jury was in coming to their decision to acquit him.
For some reason, during the stop, the cowardly Yanez began to fear for his life because of Castile. However, all Castile was doing was telling the officer that he was legally concealed carrying.
Under Minnesota law, you do not have to disclose that you are carrying a firearm during a traffic stop unless you are asked. However, if asked, carriers must answer truthfully and provide their permit to carry, along with identification. During the stop, Yanez became aware of Castile’s handgun and Castile was then legally required to show him his license. While Castile reached for his license, the fearful Yanez opened fire — dumping 7 rounds into the innocent man.
