Yanez will be cleared of any wrongdoing after the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) submits its investigative findings of the killing to the Ramsey County Attorney.
Yanez' police union, the Minnesota Law Enforcement Labor Services, released a statement by its executive director Sean Gormley, noting the killing is a tragedy and is emotional. The statement also expressed support of due process for the killer cop.
The statement reads in full:
The death of Philando Castile is a terrible tragedy for all involved, especially for the family and loved ones of the deceased.
The video being shown in the media is graphic. It’s emotional. And for some it may be hard to watch.
We support an open, thorough, and objective investigation that we believe will, in time, provide the answers to the questions we all have.
We also support the officers’ right to due process. The right of due process is afforded to all Americans.
How about a revised statement from the cop union such as: Murder by cop is unjust and indecent?
Just kidding, we all know that will never happen.
