Lavish Reynolds, the woman who filmed and narrated the aftermath of her boyfriend, Philando Castile, being fatally shot by a police officer, has spoken out about the incident and what she’s been through over the last 24 hours.
In footage posted on Facebook, a clearly emotional Reynolds voices her pain and explains what transpired since the killing of Philando Castile.
“It’s not fair,” Reynolds can be seen exclaiming. “They’re giving all of these people–these authorities–the right to kill us. It could’ve been you. It could’ve been any of us!”
The young mother was practically inconsolable as she shared what happened during the ordeal.
“I want justice!” she shouted. “[The officer] should not be home with his family, he should be somewhere handcuffed.”
“They took him nine days before his 35th birthday.”
