I am distraught over this. Acquitted of all charges. The cop wasn’t even charged for disarming a fire arm….with a little girl in the back seat. Bullets came within inches of the child. It didn’t matter to the jury. It’s gross injustice. I don’t want to live in any place where my life, my kids and loved ones lives are not valued because of their blackness. Killer cops being charged with a crime don’t mean anything because they know their good ole boys are going to acquit them of any charges. Police violence in America against unarmed black citizens is a human rights issue. America has the gall to lecture other countries about human rights & allows state sanctioned terrorism against black citizens.
Philando Castile Mom’s response to not guilty verdict
Jurors picked are by design. The whole damn thing need to be dismantled. Racists are wreaking havoc on the justice system. This is an epidemic and should be taken to the world court for human rights abuse.

Philando Castile did nothing wrong. He didn’t break any laws. He followed police orders but still shot dead on video. And NO JUSTICE!
My friend, 3ChicsPolitico’s ride or die Chick, Liza wrote this.
LIZA: What has this nation become? Not one of us would wish this fate for ourselves, for our family members or friends. No one wants to die this way, bleeding out in the front seat of a car, shot by a cop after being stopped and pulled over for no reason and trying to cooperate, trying to stay alive. What exactly is it that stops people from condemning these acts of violence and bringing the killers to justice?
This is about our basic human rights, our right to live.
