"The police did this to me! They took an innocent man away from us! He didn't do anything. He did exactly what the police asked," lamented Diamond "Lavish" Reynolds to a crowd of supporters and media on Thursday following the as-yet unexplained police shooting death of her boyfriend, Philando Castile.
Castile, Reynolds and her four-year-old daughter had been pulled over by St. Anthony, Minnesota, Police for a broken tail light on Wednesday night, but as Reynolds grieved Thursday,
"The police officer stopped us for a busted tail light that was not busted. They pulled us over on the side of the road, asked for license and registration. As he was reaching for his license and registration, he told the officer that he was licensed to carry and had [a firearm]. As he got back, comfortable, the police took four or five shots into him for no reason.
