Phiando Castile’s “Fambly” Paid $3 Million to Settle Lawsuit Over His Death

Once the dashcam video of the shooting of Philando Castile was released last week, it was clear that Officer Jeronimo Yanez should never work in law enforcement again.

Thus, the disturbing video, embedded below, suggests that civil liability was present, i.e., wrongful death.

Still, very few wrongful deaths end up with a $3 million payout. It is, I believe, excessive by a factor of 10. I suppose it can partly be chalked up to the city wanting to keep its fine black citizens from rioting over the not guilty verdict for ex-cop Yanez.

The mother of Philando Castile, who was fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer in 2016, agreed to a $3 million settlement, lawyers announced Monday.

Castile, 32, was shot during a traffic stop in St. Anthony, Minn., by Officer Jeronimo Yanez. The shooting was in the national spotlight as Castile’s girlfriend, a passenger in the car, live-streamed the shooting on Facebook. Her 4-year-old daughter was also in the car.

Yanez, 29, was acquitted on June 15 of manslaughter and discharge of a firearm, prompting several days of protests. Yanez was fired from the St. Anthony police force.

A statement from the government, and from lawyers on both sides of the case, was released Monday. It said in part, “The death of Philando Castile is a tragedy for his family and for our community. The parties moved expeditiously to resolve potential civil claims resulting from this tragedy in order to allow the process of healing to move forward for the Castile family, for the people of St. Anthony Village, and for all those impacted by the death of Philando Castile throughout the United States.”

The statement added that Valerie Castile will be paid though insurance funds, and that “no taxpayer monies” are involved.

Watch the disturbing video that shows a nervous Jeronimo Yanez, variously identified as Latino or Native American.

Many other deserving families of dead victims don’t get anything close to this kind of payout. Black privilege appears to be at work again.

  1. Pretty soon, all cities will stop issuing their police firearms and start issuing them plastic bananas. Shooting niggers leads to either multi-million dollar payouts to the sh*t-ape famblies or multi-million dollar damages from when the sh*t-beasts riot.

  2. Freddie Gray was a heroin dealer, who should have been in jail.

    Michael Brown tried to kill Darren Wilson.

    Philando Castile refused to cooperate with police.

    All in all, in death they are worth a combined $10.9 million.

    Oh, and Tamir Rice’s family got $6 million from the city of Cleveland.

    But, Ms. Steinle’s family got nothing. And they even went to court.
    A totally worthless race.
