Officer Who Fatally Shot Philando Castile Praised by Chief: “He Showed Me That He Could Shine in That Public Eye”

Officer Who Fatally Shot Philando Castile Praised by Chief:  “He Showed Me That He Could Shine in That Public Eye”

The officer who fatally shot Philando Castile is back at work and being praised by his police chief.

St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez fatally shot 32-year-old Philando Castile during a traffic stop. Castile, a beloved cafeteria worker at a Minnesota elementary school, was shot dead in July after he told Yanez he had a legally licensed weapon in the vehicle. When Castile reached for his wallet, he was shot dead by Yanez.

The aftermath of the shooting was broadcast live by Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds.

Chief Jon Mangseth described Yanez, who is Latino, on Wednesday as an ideal officer with an outstanding track record.

 

“He has a real sound ability when it comes to communicating and relating to people,” Mangseth said in an interview, according to CBS Minnesota. “He showed me that he could shine in that public eye.”

Mangseth also said he made sure that the officer got counseling after he shot Castile to death.

“He’s concerned for his future and for his family,” the chief said. “This has put him and his family front and center in our metro area, not to mention the nation.”

These comments by Chief Mangseth reveal that the ongoing investigation into the fatal shooting is a farce. The chief would not heap praise on Yanez if there was any chance that the officer would be found guilty of any wrongdoing. That Yanez will escape disciplinary action is a foregone conclusion by everyone involved.

Why should we be surprise this is another example of white supremacy.. The oppressor is becoming an endangered species daily and they're doing everything they can to maintain power and control. It doesn't matter if they're democrat or republican they're all family and they're doing what Malcolm said what we should be doing.. By Any Means Necessary to survive the day will come when the only time we will see white people are in books or museums and they know that.

You should never praise a person for taking another's life.

We are too passive. Blacks don't give whites a reason to have second thoughts about harming us. We are too blame

Chief mangseth is a spokesman for the criminal element in the police department. He is not a police chief, he is a gang leader, representing the blue wall of criminality within the police. FTC of police.
