Valerie Castile managed to keep it “cool” for news media. However via her Facebook Live video, she says “f**k what they talking about…”
ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA — Valerie says she’s just been inducted into a “F**ked Up Mothers” club, after her son — Philando Castile — was murdered on live video. And, to seal her position, his killer — Jeronimo Yanez — got off with a “not guilty” verdict, on June 17.
That being the result…
Rightfully so, Valerie Castile is livid beyond anything we can possibly comprehend.
In several cases where police officers have killed unarmed Blacks in the past, many of the families have pleaded with the community to remain calm and non-violent — that we peacefully and cooperatively get passed the issue.

Valerie Castile even held a similar perspective before this trial. She believed that “the system” would do its job and convict Yanez of manslaughter.
Seriously…this scary-a** man murdered a father in front of his daughter and then lied about what happened. And to top it all off, as Black Loop previously reported, 10 out of 12 of Yanez’s jurors were white!
Who the hell set THAT up?

Philando’s mother is no longer agreeing with “be peaceful.”
“I just want to say one thing to everybody out there, I don’t give a f**k what you do. Do what your heart desires, ’cause that s**t wasn’t right. And, I’m here to say that. And F**K the police!”

Valerie says, as long as we “sit down and just take it,” they’re going to continue killing us. Likewise, she notes that — “one day,” if we just continue taking it — it might be you hoping the justice system does right by you for the same thing…only to watch your child’s killer receive a “not guilty” verdict from a panel of majority-white jurors.
If Philando’s mom had things her way, things would be “on and cracking” right now.
Here’s her full video below.
