Kamala Harris says Minnesota police wouldn’t have shot Philando Castile if he were white
– LA Times
“California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris on Wednesday said that Philando Castile, who was shot and killed by a Minnesota police officer during a traffic stop last week, would be alive today had he been white.
Harris, a candidate for U.S. Senate, made the comment to Jake Tapper on CNN.
Tapper noted that Castile had been pulled over by police on 52 separate occasions before the shooting. Tapper asked Harris if she agreed with Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton that Castile’s race factored into why he was shot.
“I think that there’s no question … that based on the facts as I know it that he would not be dead,” Harris said. “That officer perceived him differently.”

Kamala Harris Claims Castile Shot Because He Was Black
“I think that there’s no question that he was … that based on the facts as I know it that he would not be dead if that police officer perceived him differently,” she told Tapper.
Harris spoke on the same day that Fresno police released body cam footage of the shooting death of an unarmed white teenager.
Harris, who is running for U.S. Senate, spoke to Tapper after video emerged of an emotional speech she gave last Friday in which she lost her composure as she described her competing emotions as the state’s chief law enforcement officer on the one hand, and as a black woman on the other.”

– Yet not a single word about Kate Steinle who was murdered in San Francisco by an illegal alien who had been deported five times previously. And not a tearful word about police killing an unarmed white 19-year-old, Dylan Noble in Fresno. By Harris’ logic neither Kate Steinle nor Dylan Nobel would be dead if they were white.
Wait, they were white.

Body Cam Footage of Cops Who Shot White Fresno Teenager Released
“Fresno police released the “body cam” footage Wednesday of officers who shot and killed an unarmed white 19-year-old, Dylan Noble, during a traffic stop last month.
Noble’s death has sparked outrage in the community, as well as an impromptu protest in which mourners carried signs reading “White Lives Matter,” a reference to the “Black Lives Matter” movement against alleged police racism. The Noble family believes the teenager was “murdered,” and is suing the city.
The video shows officers confronting Noble, guns drawn, as he sits in a pickup truck at a local gas station. Officers tell him to put both of his hands up, but Noble only puts one hand through the driver’s side window. Later, Noble emerges from the truck and is seen raising only one hand, ignoring demands to show both hands as he walks toward police. Two shots are heard, and he collapses in agony. Officers demand that he put both hands above his head, and he is shot two more times on the ground.”

Kamala Harris Questioned about Conflict of Interest in San Onofre Edison Closure Deal during Senate Debate |
Senate candidate and current California Attorney General Kamala Harris was asked her opinion on a recent Public Utilities Commission plan to keep the San Onofre nuclear waste on site for the foreseeable future. Harris declined to answer stating as AG she was representing the CPUC as well as conducting a criminal investigation into the CPUC and the plant closure deal.
No answers, but plenty of platitudes and political evasion. And still now word about that ‘on-going’ criminal investigation at San Onofre Nuclear Plant. Why not?
Is she planning on running out the clock like the Seal Beach Drakkai Murder case, until after the November elections?/CJ
