Officer acquitted of manslaughter in killing of Philando Castile

Officer Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota policeman who shot and killed Philando Castile during a July 2016 traffic stop, has been acquitted of manslaughter as well as two lesser counts of discharging his weapon. Prosecutors argued that Yanez racially profiled Castile, who was black, while the defense argued that Yanez feared for his life. RT America’s Natasha Sweatte reports.
