And, before I get asked... I killfiled "Ed" because after the umpteenth
on a cop, and deserved what he got - I'd fucking had enough.
There was never any evidence that Castile ever had the gun out. It
van, I believe... but "Ed" just wouldn't leave it alone.

It suggests he’s a dumbass who can’t even figure out how to drive within
the law, implying that he’s a poor choice to recieve a concealed pistol
license and may do something stupid, like yank out his gat in the middle
of a traffic stop.

Because if Castile yanked out his pistol like a dumbass, which the cops
claim and pics seem to confirm, which I find far more likely then the cop
shooting him for no reason at all, he brought it on himself

Sure, and you’re supposed to follow the cops commands, not whip out

While admittedly blurry, it looks to me like an unholstered handgun
laying on his left thigh, with the muzzle pointed to the left and the
grip in his crotch, partly covered by his left hand.
Which suggests he drew the gun from its holster with his right
hand and dropped it in his lap when he was shot.

I don’t believe in any way that Castile wanted to shoot the cop,
he just stupidly (possibly because he was high?) unholstered
his handgun before the cop asked him to, at which point the
cop stupidly freaked out and mag-dumped on him instead of
screaming; “DON’T MOVE OR I’LL FUCKING SHOOT YOU!”
Both are indications of someone who probably shouldn’t be carrying
a handgun, which was proven (IMO) by Castile stupidly drawing his

That was what got him shot.
Unless the cop specifically orders you to hand over the gun, just leave
it in the holster; A road-side traffic stop isn’t the place to be fucking
around with guns.
And this also applies to the cops; ordering the civilian to unholster a
handgun and hand it over (thou there’s no evidence this cop did that)
is stupid and only asking for trouble.
But the cop is also to blame in all this, as he should have been paying
attention to what Castile said and what he was doing and if he had, the
cop could stopped all this before it even got started by simply barking
I’m sure it was in the holster when he was driving but it appears that
once Castile was stopped, he told the cop he had a CPL and a gun
and then the cop asked for I.D., at which point Castile pulled his gun
even thou the cop hadn’t ordered him to, causing the cop to freak out
and shoot him.

None, I’d guess and as I mentioned up-thread, I don’t believe in any
way that Castile wanted to shoot this cop, he simply fucked up and
pulled out his handgun to hand it over to the cop (despite not being
asked to do so) and as Blacks are WAY over represented in all
categories of crime, (particularly killing cops) the cop freaked out
and shot him.
Castile fucked up and the cop fucked up but there was nothing
“racist” about this shooting. Shit happens.

I think it went like this;
Cop automatically edgy when stopping a Black guy.
Black guy automatically nervous being stopped by a White (Hispanic) cop.
Black guy fucks up, pulling out handgun to hand it over.
Cop fucks up, immediately shooting the guy thinking he’ll be shot.
#OnlyBlackLivesMatter instantly scream “racism!”…

But maybe the cop was overly relaxed due to the presence
of Castile's girlfriend and her daughter and wasn’t paying
attention to Castile like he should have, then looked down
and saw the guy suddenly had a gun in his hand?
Asked for his I.D. and instead, the guy pulled a gun out.
Pro-gunners about all about common sense gun safety and
whipping out a gat at a traffic stop, isn’t.
Castile's gun fell out of his pocket as he was being moved by the EMT's.
He never pulled it out, as "Ed" kept saying.
carried his gun. He also cited testimony from first responders of
Enough was enough... but maybe it's time to take "Ed" out of the
penalty box, and see if his eyesight has improved. There's only a few
