From Live Streaming To Felony Assault
Diamond Reynolds live streamed the shooting death of her former boyfriend Philando Castile. Reynolds spoke out against the police shooting after she live streamed the event. She was even invited to an ABC Town hall meeting.
“It could’ve been another innocent death swept under the rug; it could’ve been another officer getting away with murder because he’s an officer.” – Diamond Reynolds
The shooting incident became a focal point for black lives matter protests. The officer who shot Castile was eventually charged with manslaughter. He pleaded not guilty to these charges on February 27th 2017. The trial is set for May 30th.
Now it would appear that one of the key witnesses for the state will be behind bars for beating a woman with a hammer. The St. Paul police said the circumstances surrounding the incident remain under investigation, however, Sources told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that it was Reynolds who used the hammer. If this is true she’ll probably be doing some serious time due to the extent of the victim’s injuries.
