WTF? I saw the video of the cop shooting Castile for the first time yesterday. Is there something we're all missing? Where was the officer ever in danger? Where is the officer's rational explanation of why deadly force seemed necessary? The officer knew a child was in the car. Wouldn't that have dramatically reduced his inclination to use deadly force? What sort of training do these officers get in de-escalating tense situations? Why has that not been mentioned?
