The methods used by police officers when detaining suspects has been the subject of much scrutiny over the past few years. With incidents like the deaths of Freddy Gray, Michael Brown and Eric Garner stirring controversy and even violent outbursts from groups like Black Lives Matter and the African American community as a whole, the subject of police brutality is one that tends to stir contention.
And after the girlfriend of Philando Castile filmed the death of her boyfriend by a police officer in Falcon Heights, MN, while streaming it to Facebook, that outrage is once again rising.
In a video you can watch on the next page, you can see the whole thing go down. Notice how the demeanor of the police officer isn't exactly one of somebody who has it under control. This leaves two questions. Does this keep happening because police officers are scared? And is this going to incite more riots, like the ones that took place in Ferguson?

This story don’t make any sense to me at all….you just seen your boyfriend get shot…..and you get the phone and start video….instead taking care of your child and getting her out of the car……REALLY THIS STORY SOMETHING NOT RIGHT!!!!#
According to one source, he had never even applied for a handgun permit.
From what I saw of the video, she never rendered aid, never called 911 as he bled out, at least for the first few minutes of the video.
Just lectured the cop.
Learn to do what the hell your told and don’t resist maybe your$#%&!@*wouldn’t get shot.
I agree with Betty Flood. They were pulled over because he fit the description of a robbery suspect.
He robbed a store .
