The Cop Who Murdered Philando Castile Acquitted
In The Cop Who Murdered Philando Castile Acquitted, Rick Wallace, Ph.D., Psy.D. addresses the fact that another police officer has gotten away with killing a Black man without cause.
While Philando Castille was armed, he had a legal right to have that weapon on his person. He also informed the officer of the weapon and he told the officer that he had the license to carry that weapon. The officer then told him to provide his license, and Philando reached for his license, the officer shot him multiple times — resulting in his death.
