Black Lives Shatter

St. Paul, Minnesota—Supporters of Philando Castile embrace on June 16 after a jury acquitted the police officer who shot and killed him. A school cafeteria worker, Castile was pulled over for a broken taillight last summer, and the officer thought he matched the description of a robbery suspect. A dashboard camera recorded Castile saying he had a gun in the car and was licensed to carry it.

The officer fired seven times, and Castile’s girlfriend live-streamed the aftermath on Facebook, sparking further uproar over police shootings of African-Americans.
