Girlfriend of Philando Castile Changes Her Story Did She Withhold Video of the Actual Shooting?
Misadventures in Diversity ^ | 7/11/16 | Donald Joy

Posted on 07/11/2016 11:02:35 AM PDT by IChing

Well, well, well… What a tangled web of hair-weaves, when the race-hustlers practice to deceive!

Despite the lies spun by #BlackLivesMatter scammers, new analysis (to date, found only here) may turn out to blow the lid off the Philando Castile case.

Officials are keeping such tight screws on information about the incident (the dashcam video, for example) that we are left to try to decipher everything ourselves, while black terrorists launch assassination attacks on police and lay seige to cities across the country.

Castile’s girlfriend and passenger, Lavish “Diamond” Reynolds, has changed her story in multiple ways since the aftermath of her boyfriend getting shot and killed (which she live-streamed to Facebook, narrated in her oddly calculated-sounding outrage) by a police officer during a traffic stop in Minnesota last Wednesday, July 6th.

For one thing, she started out saying repeatedly that Castile had been pulled over for supposedly having a broken taillight. But in subsequent statements, on video, she said multiple times that it was for having a headlight out.

The taillight/headlight discrepancy is no bombshell, of course.

Neither is her dubious claim that Castile was reaching for his license & registration when shot by officer Jerenimo Yenez. I say dubious partly because as anyone who has dug into this case at all knows, it seems Castile never actually drove legally. Based on his miles-long record of violations, showing scores of just about every kind of motor vehicle offense, and under near-constant license suspension/revocation, it’s very doubtful that Castile even had a license at the time in question because the scofflaw usually just drove without one.

So, for a variety of possible reasons, officer Yenez could indeed have been right in fearing that Castile was reaching for the gun instead of a license/registration. Especially since the real reason Yenez stopped Castile to begin with was (as told to police dispatch by Yenez) because Castile closely resembled a suspect wanted for an armed robbery at a nearby store four days prior.

But the unlikelihood of reaching for a license/registration by Castile isn’t the bombshell either.

What’s the bombshell? Check this out: I came to notice something very peculiar in yet another way Lavish Reynolds changed her story, something that didn’t quite sink in or set off any big alarms for me at first.

Hours after the shooting, upon Reynolds’ being released from police questioning to a wildly sympathetic crowd/press gaggle, a woman asked her, “How were you able to figure out that you should put this on Facebook?” Reynolds replied by going into a long tirade saying she wanted to show the world that “these police are not here to protect and serve us, but to assasinate us; they are here to kill us because we are black!!”

In mid-rant, she told the crowd that she didn’t capture the actual shooting on video because “…if I woulda moved while that gun was out, he woulda shot me too!”

That question and answer comes at the 7:07 mark in the video below:

https://youtu.be/ArV8jrKNM6k

Does that even make sense? If we are to believe her, she started rolling video while Yenez still had his gun out, and had just let several shots fly.

It seems to me that most people who take video when they get pulled over by police start recording at the earliest possible point in the encounter. If Reynolds was afraid of being shot for moving to capture video before Yenez opened fire, wouldn’t she have been just as afraid to start recording once Yenez had opened fire and was still hyper-adrenaline keyed on any threat/target in the vehicle?

Now comes the bombshell. The next day, Reynolds spoke at a press conference and completely changed her explanation of why she didn’t get the shooting itself on video.

Ready? Go to the 5:00 mark in this excerpt:

https://youtu.be/GSmDFPz4Bx4

Did you catch that?

You hear Reynolds say, “…I was not able to get the actual shooting because I did not want that horrible act to be on social media…” That’s a completely different reason than the one given the day before, by the way.

Most importantly, that remark is what I believe poker players and con-men call a “tell.”

In the process of shifting parts of her story and bellowing indignant racial screeds, she’s inadvertently telling us, by letting subconscious code slip out, that she actually did record the shooting itself — but she cut off/hid that part of the video from what she wanted us to see, and began live-streaming what she did want us to see.

Think about what she said: She claimed that she did not want to have video of a “that horrible act” to be on social media. Ask yourself, now, how could she have known that a “horrible act” was about to take place, and thereby base her alleged decision — to supposedly not start recording until afterward — on such knowledge? It doesn’t pass the smell test.

She could not know of an impending “horrible act” — unless she was in on some sort of failed plan by Castile to try to shoot the police first (or, an insane plan to deliberately provoke police deadly force for some reason).

She’s lying about something having to do with the video on her phone.

I say that what she’s really telling us (without intending to) is that not only doesn’t she want people to see the shooting, but also that she had the ability to let people see it, but pretends otherwise. She pretends she made this decision to start recording afterward. Except she’s too illogical to trick everyone.

I suspect she’s trying to cover up the video evidence which would sink her shakedown scam’s chances of succeeding. That is, the part of the video she’s pretending not to have recorded would help prove that Yenez was justified in shooting Castile, because for whatever reason, Castile refused to comply, and reached toward where his gun was when ordered not to reach.

Lavish Reynolds may be remembering the unfortunate incident in the video below, from a couple of years ago, and using it as the template for her shakedown story:

https://youtu.be/5J83Q1JKv-A

My understanding as of this writing is that the police still have custody of Reynolds’ phone while they conduct their investigation. If I’m right about all this, can she be that much of a gambler as to think investigators wouldn’t discover the segment of video in question while examining the phone’s contents?

Maybe this case will be over more quickly than we expected.

Seeing as so many cops have been murdered over these #BLM scams, what do you think should happen to her if it turns out she lied and hid video of the actual shooting which exonerates Yenez?

I doubt there ever was a video of the actual real-time shooting myself.

Didn't the cop tell the dude "don't move"? He moved. He more than moved. He reached for his wallet with total disregard to the officer's instructions. So what else is new, black males?

You move, you lose.

Too late. The first lie is nearly all the way around the world and the truth is still looking for it’s pants. Barn, door, horsey gone.

If the police were using body cams and dash cams to capture the events there’d be no argument over what happened.

Yet too many police departments continue to argue against these cameras.

Read the analysis, and ask yourself not only why she’d give two completely different reasons why she didn’t record the shooting, but also why her 2nd answer is so bizarre and suggestive of a “tell”.

They have the dashcam of the incident, but for some reason they’re sitting on it while the dead cops’ bodies pile up.

Sometimes if you do what the officer tells you to do they shoot you anyway.

Ah yes but the new meme is that the guy was stopped multiple times in the past so was this.....oh no should I say it? Yes I will:an example of racial profiling? Gotta change the theme when the story doesn’t add up!

Couldn’t tell for sure what actually happened there. Coulda been the subject saying “I’m gonna get up”
Either way that was awful....

I really don’t care enough to go into it all. I really never thought she had anything on video of the shooting to start with. Just lies and BS afterwards.

Yeah, people better wake up to the country they are living in. TV shows are not keeping people at home, fat and glued to their seats until bedtime anymore.

It isn’t calm and safe and great, and if you point it out you want it to go back that way you are targeted.

How about what should happen to members of the media who reported her story without verifying any of the "facts"? They should be held liable for the frenzy that followed.

Since these BLM protests started over a year ago, the media has fanned the flames with irresponsible reporting.

Well the point of all the effort I put into it is to show people why there’s reason to beleive she did. But research and analysis isn’t for everyone.

I was thinking last night that she had the WHOLE stop recorded.

And that she only put the "post shooting" part on FB.

Of course, not one member of the mainstream media axes this question... The same media that just replayed 3 seconds of rodney king over and over and over...

Gaffer :" I doubt there ever was a video of the actual real-time shooting myself."

It doesn't serve her purpose , no filming of the actual event of the shooting. and her constantly testimony changes .
Police dashcam is admissible as evidence.
Her sworn written report to police is subject to criminal perjury charges,
and any written sworn statement should be used to confront her,
and she should be subject to payment for injuries related to any police action, or riot destruction by civilians,
(see: gofundme.com )
arising in the aftermath that she created through false testimony and inciting civil disturbance.
She should not profiteer from criminal behavior !

Exactly, that’s what I think too. She started recording from the very start of when they got pulled over, and only went live after the shooting, pretending the first part of the video never got recorded. That explains her bizarre 2nd answer somewhat.

tend to agree, unless police are holding up the release to smoke her recording out, if there is one.
