New video shows girl's bravery after Castile shooting

Yanez said, "OK. Don't reach for it then". It shows Yanez approaching Castile's vehicle and asking for a driver's license and proof of insurance.

Castile is heard saying: 'Sir, I do have to tell you, I have a firearm on me.' It is said in a non-threatening tone.

YANEZ: Don't pull it out.

"I don't want it to be like this anymore", her daughter said.

Meaning that, just a few minutes into the stop, Yanez had already played judge and jury, deciding that even if Castile wasn't the robber the police were looking for, that he was at the very least a drug dealer.

"I can't believe they just did this", Reynolds responded. Like the King video, it convinced thousands and perhaps millions of people that they had seen a crime.

As seen in the below video, Diamond's 4-year-old daughter tries to calm her mother down and tells her to keep quiet and stop saying bad words so her mother won't get "shooted", in a 4-year-old's language, a girl still so young that she didn't know the past tense of "shoot" is "shot".

"Because I know that the people are not protected by police", Reynolds said, according to NBC Minneapolis affiliate KARE. Yanez yelled during her commentary. But what many are left with is the image of a police officer-whose actions eventually left another man dead-posing with paraphernalia supporting a belief that a person in his line of duty is not valued enough in society.

Yanez then shoots seven times into the driver's side of the vehicle; with the first shots at such close range that his weapon is partially inside the auto cabin.

The girl tells her, "I was scared because I didn't want bullets to come in the back seat".

Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension revealed that Jeronimo Yanez originally told investigators he shot Philando Castile seven times because the smell of marijuana made him fear for his life.

"Which direction did you fire your weapon?" asked a female voice in the video. He declined to say whether he thought Yanez acted appropriately, but said the jury sympathizes with the Castile family.

"I knew, in theory, what to expect, but we all saw it for the first time when the jury saw it", she added. It lends credence to Yanez's argument that he saw Castile reach for something but does not tell us conclusively whether it was his gun - about which he had calmly and politely informed the officer - or perhaps his wallet, or something else entirely.

It is impossible by the dashboard video alone to verify Yanez' take on how Castile was positioning himself.

Video released by the BCA shows Yanez turn on his emergency lights, pull Castile over and approach Castile's vehicle.

He said Castile was "gunned down like a rabid animal".

However, law enforcement says the best thing to do is to have your permit to carry and license on hand.

"Unfortunately this outreach was ignored or rebuffed by all parties", Strawser said.

While this is happening, Officer Yanez is being driven to the St. Anthony Police Department to be processed for evidence. The city announced recently that they intend to offer him a voluntary separation agreement.

When the question is put before a jury, jurors must decide whether it was reasonable for an officer to think his or her life was in danger.
