The city of St. Anthony, Minnesota that was responsible for hiring an officer who shot and killed a Black man during a traffic stop reached a settlement with Philando Castile‘s girlfriend and daughter who were in the car during the incident.

CBS News reports, on Tuesday, November 29, 2017, the city council voted in favor of paying Diamond Reynolds and her 4-year-old daughter $675,000. In addition to that, she will receive $125,000 from the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust and the city of Roseville where she was taken by police.

According to officials from the city of St. Anthony, Reynolds filed a complaint in Ramsey County looking for monetary damages from the shooting. Earlier this month the city met with Reynolds were they agreed on an amount.

“If we don’t approve this and we go ahead with litigation, it would just reopen the whole case again and bring heartache to everyone involved,” explained Mayor Jerry Faust. “It is best to settle, and this will resolve all civil litigation stemming from the incident on July 6, 2016, and it opens the door to continued healing within our community.”

    Cave n!@@ers shut your sh!tty lying mouths, before flies take up resident. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  3. I am a resident of Cleveland. Will people (No matter what color) please stop blaming Tamir Rice’s mother for the gun that the child was playing with. It is a known fact that another child at the park gave him the gun and his mother had no knowledge that he had it or was pointing at anyone. She is distraught about losing her child and this blame should not be put on her shoulders.

        Shut the fuck up. Why would she open a retirement plan for an infant? Leave this site, it’s ours bitch

        Uh, a 529 plan is a savings vehicle dedicated to higher education, I believe you are confusing it with a retirement 401K plan. It’s generally opened when as child is born to 2 loving, educated parents. I wouldn’t expect you to know that.
