Many of us probably watched the this tragic situation unfold on Facebook Live or watched it circulate throughout your Facebook news feeds. Many of us were shocked and outraged by witnessing the death of Philando Castile.

The court ruling of this case acquitted Office Jeronimo Yanez and found him not guilty of the death of Philando Castile.

Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension released the case file on the fatal shooting of Philando Castile, which included the dashcam. The dashcam revealed  police officer Jeronimo Yanez shooting Castile during the July 6, 2016 traffic stop in Falcon Heights.

In the video we see Officer Yanez asks for license and insurance and Castile complies. He hands over his insurance card and then tells the officer he has a firearm. Within seconds, Yanez opens fire.

Such as sad thing to witness and to hear that verdict.
