Philando Castile’s Mother Offers Support

T wo individuals, who otherwise have little in common, shared a moment of empathy that few people can understand.

WCCO-TV reports that Valerie Castile and Don Damond , whose loved ones died in separate Minnesota police shootings, met Thursday night outside Damond’s Minneapolis home before a rally for his fiance.

 

“We’re just here to support the family, that’s all,” Valerie told WCCO-TV.

Former St. Anthony, Minnesota police Officer Jeronimo Yanez killed Castile’s son, Philando Castile , in 2016 during a routine traffic stop. And on July 15, an officer shot Justine Damond (who had already changed her last name from Ruszczyk) after she called 911 to report a suspected sexual assault outside her home.

ABC News  said a large crowd met outside Damond’s home before joining the hundreds who gathered at a vigil and rally to demand answers about his fiance’s shooting.

“They’re beginning to understand this is not a Black or White thing. This is a human being thing,” Castile said at the rally, according to CNN . “This is a humanity type thing.”

After a jury acquitted Yanez of manslaughter, the city settled with Castile before she could file a wrongful death civil law suit. The shooting and acquittal sparked widespread protests.

Officer Mohamed Noor , one of two police officers who responded to Justine Damond’s 911 call, shot the Australian woman from the passenger seat of his squad car when she approached. The community is frustrated that officials have said little about the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

A former Miss Kentucky USA is accused of smuggling drugs to an inmate at an Ohio prison, the  Courier-Journal   reports.

Kia Hampton , 28, was arrested in Allen County, Ohio on May 26 after cops said she was caught smuggling marijuana into the Allen Correctional Institution for inmate  Jeremy Kelly , according to an affidavit explaining the arrest, the report says.

She pushed a white balloon on the floor after reaching into her pant leg during a police interrogation, the affidavit stated, having had  2.82 grams of marijuana on her.

An Allen County grand jury charged her on July 13 with one count of “ illegal conveyance of drugs of abuse onto the grounds of a specified governmental facility ,” a third-degree felony carrying a three-year prison sentence. Hampton is scheduled for a July 26 arraignment.

Hampton was the first African American to win the Kentucky title in November 2010. She was also named Miss Congeniality USA in 2011, reports Kentucky news station WAVE 3 .
