He also says he is glad that he finally heard Philando did nothing wrong also makes him happy. This is very true. We had a man be stopped for a violation and be shot after he tried to reach for his wallet which he was asked to do.

John Thompson, Castile’s friend says he was a good guy. He says Philando was a nerd who liked to lay Chess. He says he worked with Philando for years and couldn’t wait to come to work to see him. Thompson says ‘everything he did was right.’ He states he just want police departments to ‘let us be black.’ Thompson says he is Philando. He went on to say every time you see him call him Philando. This is a happy moment for the friends of Philando. Something is being done finally which is a good sign.
