Yanez found not guilty

A jury on Friday found Yanez not guilty of manslaughter for shooting Castile during a traffic stop.

That in itself isn't too inflammatory, but the accompanying image of a police badge pictured alongside a "runaway slave patrol" badge riled many people. In court, Yanez testified that Philando was pulling the firearm out of his pocket, despite being told not to. The officer shot Castile to death as he allegedly was reaching for his wallet, which was near the gun he carried.

"A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without outcome, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled", Kaepernick wrote.

Putin: New sanctions will 'complicate' Russia-US ties
The bill would require a congressional review if President Donald Trump attempts to ease or end penalties against Moscow. The penalties have been criticized by Austria and Germany for promoting US economic interests.

Castile's case was particularly controversial because his girlfriend was streaming to Facebook live after St. Anthony police office Jeronimo Yanez pulled his service pistol and fatally shot Castile seven times as her young daughter sat in the backseat of the auto.

Kaepernick had earlier tweeted: 'My heart aches for Philando's family'. The march came just a day after protesters shutdown Interstate 94 in response to the verdict. "My son loved this city, and this city killed my son", said Valerie.

"You call yourself a good cop, but you see one of your colleagues beating somebody", she said. They murdered my mother f***ing son with his seat belt on.
