The shooting of Philando Castile by a St. Paul, Minnesota police officer has sparked nationwide protests after Castile’s girlfriend live-streamed a video from the scene, starting right after Castile was shot. Lavish Reynolds narrated her version of events, claiming Officer Yanez opened fire for no reason at all.
(MWN)- Now, new evidence is completely shredding Reynolds’ version of the events, proving she is a fraud and liar. New high-resolution photos confirm Philando Castile had a gun on his lap when Officer Yanez opened fire. Newly obtained photos show a gun at the scene on the street. Reynolds’ original video’s sound has also been enhanced, making the officer’s words following the shooting clearer.
Philando Castile had a gun on his lap, and following the shooting, Officer Yanez said to Reynolds, “Keep your hands where I can see them,” and, “I told him not to reach for it, I told him to get his hands off of it.”
The motive behind Lavish Reynolds’ so calmly live-streaming a false narrative is that she was simply covering her own ass. Police have linked the tax stamp on the Newport cigarettes Reynolds had in her possession on another video to the robbery of a convenience store.
It was that robbery that led police to pull Castile over in the first place because he matched the BOLO (Be On Look Out) alert of the suspect wanted by police. Reynolds is being investigated as a possible accomplice.
