Last week, Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez was acquitted of all charges in the fatal shooting of black motorist Philando Castile.
Castile’s girlfriend had Facebook livestreamed the immediate events after the shooting in 2016. But on Tuesday, dashboard cam video was released showing the events leading up to the shooting, as well as footage from a squad car that shows Castile’s girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and her four-year-old daughter during the aftermath.
In light of this footage, we want to hear from you about your reactions, as well as what experiences have shaped your view of law enforcement. Did you have a positive or negative view of police officers growing up and why? What experiences shaped your perspective, and has it changed over the years?
