Not Guilty Verdict In Philando Castile Case Sparks Protest And Arrests

The news of Philando Castile’s killer, Jeronimo Yanez, being found not guilty of manslaughter set off night-long protests in St. Paul.
2,000 people flooded the streets of St. Paul and 1,500 of those are said to have blocked I-94 according to a report by TwinCities.

Police officers issued warnings that anyone standing on the interstate would be arrested. About an hour after that warning, officers began fitting angry citizens with handcuffs and carting them off, 18 people in total.

Some folks took their grievances to the Governor’s mansion in the early hours of the morning.

Report states that Jeronimo Yanez was fired from his job immediately after he was found not guilty.
