I believe that is just one of the reasons he was killed. And naming a training fund after him would have been at minimum an olive branch, a symbolic olive branch between the community and police saying 'hey, let's work through this'. Let's move on from this but let's remember what happened and why this happened. And they don't want to remember."W/S Protesters outside Governor's Mansion M/S Car banner reads ''Blue lies matter''W/S Protesters chanting on roadW/S Protesters leavingW/S Police officersM/S Woman filming police officers' ID badgesW/S Protesters leavingSCRIPTScores of Black Lives Matter activists rallied outside the Minnesota Governor's Residence in Saint Paul, Friday, in protest at a police board decision rejecting the naming of a new training fund after Philando Castile.Castile’s mother, Valerie spoke at the protest.
