justice

Philando Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, streamed live the moments after he was shot and killed by a Minnesota police officer on Wednesday. She was as cool and composed as an
anchorwoman on Wednesday night, her voice strong as she narrated the horrific scene around her into her phone that was streaming live on Facebook.
“Please, officer, don’t tell me that you just did this to him,” she said, as her boyfriend lay slumped and bleeding in the car next to her, fatally shot by a police officer. “You shot four bullets into him, sir. He was just getting his license and registration, sir.”





Ordered out of the car, then to kneel near the car, she was handcuffed and put in the back of a police cruiser. She was not released until 5 a.m.

WHY?  What was the reason or the charge that justified this harsh treatment of a smart and brave woman?
