“Please, officer, don’t tell me that you just did this to him,” she said, as her boyfriend, Philando Castile, lay slumped and bleeding in the car next to her, fatally shot by a police officer. “You shot four bullets into him, sir. He was just getting his license and registration, sir.”..Diamond Reynolds who witnessed the shooting in the passenger side of the car.

Ms. Reynolds went on to say about the video she streamed in the aftermath of his shooting “I didn’t do it for pity, I didn’t do it for fame,” she told the cameras and people assembled. “I did it so that the world knows that the police are not here to protect and serve us. They are here to assassinate us. They are here to kill us. Because we are black.”

Our hearts go out to Ms. Reynolds, her family and to the family of Mr. Castile. With this we promise to continue to work for justice.
