Another black man is the latest victim of a police shooting.
Lavish Reynolds went to Facebook live after her boyfriend, Philando Castille, was shot 4 or 5 times by police.
According to Reynolds, the Minneapolis couple was pulled over for a broken taillight. Castille told police that he was carrying a permitted firearm, and was then shot as he was reaching for his wallet.
The distressed cop explained “I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand off it.”
She calmly documented the incident, thinking his “arm was shot off”, only to then realize that he was dying. She cried out towards the end of the video, as she sat handcuffed in a police car with her young daughter.
What would explain her eerie detachment from the situation? Was it shock? Should she have been live streaming this or helping her boyfriend?
