Protesters march through St. Anthony to remember Castile Sunday

Yanez protests continue with march on Hennepin

Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez has been dismissed as a police officer after he was acquitted of manslaughter in the shooting death of black motorist Philando Castile. "You can't ignore your history, always remember who they are", the picture warns.

Yanez testified he feared for his life because Castile reached for his firearm, despite being instructed not to do, during the stop last July.

"None of this would have happened but for Philando Castile", defense attorney Earl Gray said.

The case garnered immediate attention because Castile's girlfriend streamed the aftermath live on Facebook.

It has been retweeted more than 32,000 times.

Kaepernick tweeted his support for Castile's family, noting "My heart aches for Philando's family". A rally at the state Capitol on Friday led to a march that shut down a stretch of Interstate 94 and resulted in 18 arrests. She disagreed with the jury's verdict and believes there's no way to explain his death except for racism. My son loved this city, and this city killed my son, ' she said.

"As I'm standing here in this parking lot holding this sign that says Minnesota shame".
