Girlfriend of Philando Castile Urges Against Violence at Protests in Interview

Diamond Reynolds, the girlfriend of police-shooting victim Philando Castile, urged against violence at protests in the aftermath of his death, which she streamed on Facebook Live using her cell phone during the fatal traffic stop in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota, on Wednesday evening.

Reynolds said that she was "baffled" to see some protesters responding to police brutality with more violence.

In St. Paul this weekend, protests forced the closure of Interstate 94. Some participants allegedly threw objects and dropped liquids from overpasses on officers below. Others allegedly directed laser pointers at officers. In Baton Rouge, an officer had his teeth knocked out, according to police.

"Violence is never the key. Its not acceptable. We have to be able to come together and lead by example," she said. "If were not able to stand together and control our emotions then how can we ever expect anyone else in the world to do so


God bless her, she is so right.
