The Minnesota police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile during a traffic stop has been charged with second-degree manslaughter and two felony counts of dangerous discharge of a firearm. Jeronimo Yanez stopped the couple for a broken taillight.

Castile’s finacee, Diamond Reynolds, live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting. According to Reynolds, after Castile told the officer he had a firearm and was reaching for his wallet, the officer then opened fire, shooting him four times.

    It’s been 1 year since I decided to leave my last work and that decision changed everything for me… I started doing work online, over a site I discovered over internet, for several hrs /a day, and I profit now much more than i did on my office work… Last paycheck i got was for 9 thousand dollars… Superb thing about this work is that i have more free time with my family…
