The last time Alton resisted arrest, a stolen pistol fell out of his pocket. The next time he got shot. Then there’s Philando Castile. Unlike Alton, Philando’s rap sheet was mostly made up of petty traffic violations, but he was a suspect in an armed robbery.
Philando got shot when his vehicle was stopped and he appeared to reach for a gun on his lap. His passenger, Lavish Diamond Reynolds, cold-bloodedly filmed him bleeding to death. She stands to make a lot of money. So far Lavish and her friends have raised over $200,000 through Go-Fund-Me.
Here’s a video of Philando with Lavish Diamond Reynolds and her 4 year daughter:
Make of this what you will.
