Philandro Castile was shot last week by police when he allegedly reached for his license. A new video, however, shows the credibility of his girlfriend’s former video has been called into question. His girlfriend’s initial video of the incident was caught from Facebook LIVE.
The first video, taken by his girlfriend, shows Castile hunched over in the passenger seat of the car which was driven by his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds. His shirt is soaked in blood and he is seen taking his last breaths. Their young daughter was in the back seat.
In the video, Reynolds says Castile hadn’t done anything wrong. The officers asked for his license and he told them he was legally registered to carry a firearm, which he was carrying before reaching for his license and information. Then, Reynolds says the cop shot and hit Castile four times. The video shows the cop pointing a gun at Castile.
However, days before, Reynolds filmed herself and Castile smoking marijuana while she inappropriately exposed herself on the video in front of her daughter who seems visibly upset. Their daughter proceeds to ask if they can see the fireworks. Reynolds wishes everyone a happy Fourth of July and tells everyone to put their guns away.
Perhaps the most disturbing part of both videos is the young girl in the backseat. Not only did she watch her mother and father use drugs, but she also witnessed her father die right in front of her eyes.
