Philando Castile Protests; This Too Shall Pass

OPINION: The short dashcam footage that is being distributed widely on most social media platforms has been selectively edited in order to portray the narrative that this cop just walked up and murdered this guy Castile out of the clear blue because he’s black.

The reason the edited version is making the rounds is because the full video clearly shows (with audio) that the cop was actually being very cool and relaxed and was speaking casually with both of the adults in the car just seconds before, and right up until, Castile decided to reach for his gun.

HERE’S THE PROBLEM: He should have known better. Every CCW class everywhere teaches its students to NEVER, EVER draw or reach for your gun (or anything else) in the presence of a cop after he knows you’re armed – under any circumstance. Let me say that again; NEVER, EVER, under any circumstance, reach for your gun (or anything else) in the presence of a cop after he knows you’re armed. EVER.

Instead, you are instructed to present your gun permit with your ID immediately upon the officer’s approach to your vehicle and you immediately inform them that you are armed. You keep your hands in plain sight at all times (steering wheel or dashboard), you NEVER reach for anything and you do EXACTLY as instructed by the cop in order for them to safely disarm you.

Now, with that in mind, watch the full, unedited dashcam video and count all of the violations of the above instructions that Castile made.

This cop clearly ordered Castile THREE TIMES not to reach for or pull out his gun.

First he said “don’t reach for it”, then “don’t pull it out” and then “don’t pull it out!” again. Castile ignored his instructions all 3 times even as the cop was drawing on him and yelling for him not to pull it out and as a result, Castile’s gun can be seen laying in his lap on the girlfriend’s video.

With as much negative attention as has been paid in the last couple years to the injustice of cops shooting unarmed black men, and the fact that the media points out he had a permit – which means he should have attended training to avoid this exact circumstance – this particular armed black man reaching for or drawing his weapon in the presence of a cop after being forcefully warned 3 times not to, and the officer screaming at him and continuing to reach for something or draw his weapon, well, that was just bad judgment on Castile’s part.
