After being held for hours, Lavish Reynolds has been released, and has again gone live on Facebook to share her experience. Yesterday Reynolds went on Facebook live sharing the moments that occurred right after her fiancé, Philando Castile, was fatally shot. Reynolds stated that he was wrongfully shot after attempting to comply with the officers wishes.
She and her 4-year-old daughter were put into the back of a police car, and her daughter attempted to comfort her mom throughout the entire incident. Today Reynolds is continuing to claim that what the officer did was wrong. She recounts the horrifying experience. She also tells of how she was treated while in custody.
Lavish Reynolds I salute you. You can watch her live video stream below:
What still astonishes me…..even after 12 hours of nonstop coverage…is how composed and collected Diamond Reynolds, the girlfriend of #PhilandoCastile, remained in the FB live video. Yes, she was emotional when we spoke to her this morning but she was able to express how angry, how furious, how devastated she is. This has to be the most emotional “interview” I’ve ever witnessed.
