  1. This man was a small man but a big giant. He was a great young man. The short time I he with with when he join the force. It was a privilege. God Bless.

  2. Castile’s family hired Hatchett, best known as a television court-show judge. She says she won’t rely on the state’s investigation to proceed with a lawsuit against Yanez. But a police spokesman says there’s no indication that the early Tuesday incident was a “planned attack on police.” No injuries were reported.
