Philando Castile family reaches $3M settlement in death
Mother of slain black driver gets $3M deal with US city
28 June, 2017, 17:36
The mother of Philando Castile, a black motorist killed by a police officer, has reached a almost a $3 million agreement with city of St. Anthony, Minnesota, on Monday, according to a statment.
The 32-year-old elementary school cafeteria worker was killed by St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez during a July 6 traffic stop after Castile said he was armed.
The shooting gained widespread attention after Castile's girlfriend, who was in the auto with her 4-year-old daughter, live-streamed its grisly aftermath on Facebook.
Many at the meeting also weren't satisfied with the almost $3 million settlement the city paid to Castile's mother, Valerie - not because of the amount of money, but because they feel the payout is a reactive and not proactive way to fix the city's problems. It requires state court approval.
His mother Valerie Castile accepted the sum - worth over 2,300,000 - meaning Minnesota police have avoided a wrongful death lawsuit.
"No amount of money can ever replace Philando", said Castille family lawyer Robert Bennett. A Facebook page for the nonprofit foundation says it was established to help victims of gun violence and to provide relief for the grieving.
Valerie Castile was not interested in publicly addressing the settlement, Bennett said.

Jury deliberations begin in police shooting Prosecutors contend Smith was defenseless when Heaggan-Brown shot him in the chest because Smith had thrown his gun over a fence. Every time they take a shot, it's to kill you because a dead man can't talk, so they can't explain what really happened".
"It was good that they spared the family another trip to court and a lengthy trial", said Gross, who sat with Valerie Castile through much of Yanez's trial.
The trial of a former University of Cincinnati police officer accused of killing motorist Sam DuBose ended in a mistrial on Friday after the jury could not reach a unanimous decision.
He said, "Don't take it out". That settlement came almost three years after the death of Brown, whose parents sued the city.
Robert Bennett, an attorney for Valerie Castile, said the idea behind the settlement was to move expeditiously rather than have the case drawn out in federal court, a process that would "exacerbate and reopen bad wounds".
Speakers also cited the St. Anthony officials' 2012 denial of a conditional use permit for the Abu-Huraira Islamic Center in the city, which they said was motivated by religious intolerance.
The city is undergoing a voluntary review by the Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, with the goal of improving trust between the police department and the communities it serves.
Jackson's account also ignores Castile's last words, "I'm not pulling it out", which can be heard on the dash-cam footage before Yanez fired multiple shots. Two of the recent cases, the fatal shootings of Philando Castile and Sylville Smith, hinged on questions of "reasonable fear".
Bennett said the next steps include tracking down several of Philando Castile's half-siblings to determine whether they want to make any claims on the money.
