Minneapolis-St. Paul

The cop in the Philando Castile case?

I thought there was a good chance that he would be convicted on some charge.

Not guilty on all charges.

If you’re close to the black sections of the Twin Cities tonight, considering it’s the weekend, best stay in.  Because:

Incidentally, Castile is buried at Calvary, because he was a St. Louis native.

I also think this news puts the final kibosh the contention that the cop had it out for CCW permit holders.  We found out not long after the fact that it wasn’t an issue here because Castile never had one.

From the linked article:

“Castile was licensed to carry the weapon.”

So by this statement I assume there is an “open carry” license and a conceal carry license? Castile had one but not the other?

I just saw a picture of the cop involved, he’s too dark to be labeled a “white Hispanic”. OT, Mark Geregous (with Carolla on podcast) says Cosby will get off, because 2 black males on jury won’t vote to convict. Ever.

That’s why they use photoshop. If they show a photo of this guy, they just hit the brightness button until he’s White. Is it dishonest? Nope, its consistent with the lies they tell. Ever notice the media refers to this drivel as stories and not reports? Our top story tonight and every night is ebil White wacism.

Under Minnesota law, individuals must obtain a permit to carry a handgun in public. There is no stipulation in the law regarding whether that weapon must be concealed. A permit to carry constitutes a permit to purchase. To obtain a permit to carry, fill out a Permit to Carry Application and submit it to the sheriff’s office in the county where you reside.

So if he had a licence he could carry either way. As you see the licences are processed by the county sheriff not the state. It is my understanding that MN police have no idea if you have a permit or not when they run your driver’s licence, particularly if you are from another county as he was. In IL the state police issue the concealed carry licencees. They also make a notation on their data base so whenever your DL info is pulled the cop is told you have a CCL.

(For some reason it is a licence in IL and a permit most other places.)

If Castile had a permit it sounds like it would have been legal to have the gun out in the open in the car. It is still a really bad idea. Not just because the cops may shoot you but because you can loose control of the weapon in a wreck.

Here is what MN says about training: Minnesota Statutes, section 624.714, subd. 2a requires permit to carry applicants to present evidence of having received from a certified instructor training in the safe use of a handgun within one year of an original application or renewal.

I don’t know about their class is but in the IL class we spent time going over what to do when you are pulled over. I would hope MN does the same in their classes. Needless to say he did nearly the exact opposite of what you should do.

Had he acted like a semi responsible gun owner and had the gun holstered or in a glove box and then followed the cops instructions when pulled over we would not know his name. Just like Sandra Bland, Rodney King and “I Cain’t Breave”.

Looks like they are priming ape city for another chimp out. Stock up on food and pass the ammo. This electoral baloney has passed its expiration date. The Founding Fathers were Worldly and Erudite Men of Quality. They wouldn’t spit on Bush, Clinton or Trump. Democracy has never worked. That must be why Uncle Sham and the Washing Up Sewer crowd loves it. It has the built in fail they are looking for. Kinda like blacks really…

Evidently, not. Only thing I can think of is that since the cop here isn’t white, that’s why the Democrat-left-media-SJW-Soros hate machine didn’t want to throw a lit match into this pool of gasoline.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
