But Philando Castile was black.

On July 6, 2016, police were involved in a violent altercation with an armed man. 62-year-old William Bruce Ray was pointing a shotgun at passing cars on the highway.

Police arrived, assessed the situation, and wrestled the gun away from him. During the struggle, Ray brought out a handgun and fired it. Police eventually got Ray under control and took him into custody.

He had two guns.

He was openly threatening the lives of passers by.

He tried to kill policemen.

He is still alive.

He is white.

That’s all I have to say.
