Let's look at what she said vs what the facts are:
Reynolds said in the video that the police stopped them for a busted tail light. This is an outright lie.
The real fact is: The police stopped them because Castile matched the prescription of criminal that had robbed a convenience store. Well, really he looked like one of the men that was caught on video robbing a convenience store in the same neighborhood. The police had been distributed still photos from the video the day before the traffic stop.
Here is what officer Yanez radioed in when making the stop: “I’m going to stop a car. I’m going to check IDs. I have reason to pull it over. The two occupants look just like people that were involved in a robbery. The driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ‘cause of the wide set nose.”
Reynolds says that Castile had a concealed carry permit on his left leg. This has yet to be proven. We know that the local county sheriff (Ramsey MN) did not issue one. Beyond that, we only have the word of someone who could coldly narrate propaganda while her boyfriend is dying next to her.
Reynolds said the officer told Castile to get his ID. This does not appear to be the case. In her video - if you look closely - you can see a gun by his left leg. You also hear Yanez say "I told him not to reach for it." "I told him to get his hand off it."
What I found most odd during this video is that Reynolds was completely calm whilst giving an intentional false narrative of what happened. Maybe I am missing something, but that is awfully cold hearted, One would wonder why she would do such a thing. Remember what to follow folks.
Now, I am not saying Castile was one of the robbers. I am saying he looked an awful lot like one of them. Meanwhile - we know what was stolen in the robbery - cash and 2 cartons of Newport Cigarettes.
From the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension's Facebook post:
"...Suspect #2: Black male, shoulder length dreadlocks (some had been pulled into a bun), green baseball cap, sunglasses, a small mustache and some chin hair, tan pants, tan shoes with white soles, and a green long sleeved jacket. The two are suspects in an armed robbery that occurred Saturday, July 2 around 7:30 p.m. at the Super USA at 2424 Larpenteur Avenue in Lauderdale. The suspects took cash from the register and cartons of Newport cigarettes."
Maybe it is coincidence, but look what kind of cigaretts you see in Reynolds hand in a video shot later.
All I am saying is - the false narrative or literally the false narration - has already been accepted by most of the media and everyone from President Obama to the governor of Minnesota. I cannot yet say for sure the shooting was justified - but the pendelum sure has swung that way.
