Colin Kaepernick Says Police Are Like Slave Catchers After Jury Clears Officer

For the fourth day in a row, there will be another protest in response to the verdicts handed down Friday in the trial of Officer Jeronimo Yanez.

Yanez testified he feared for his life because Castile reached for his firearm, despite being instructed not to do, during the stop last July.

The case got immediate national attention when Castile's girlfriend live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook. The officer shot Castile five times after Castile said he was carrying a gun.

Kohli also praised young all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who was the highest scorer among the Indians with 76 runs off 43 balls. Kohli's dismissal for five following a golden run in the tournament prompted gloom among the India supporters.

Kaepernick captioned his tweet: 'The quarterback captioned the image: 'A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without effect, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!'

Kaepernick had earlier tweeted: 'My heart aches for Philando's family'.

After Friday night protests in St. Paul that ended in 18 arrests on I-94, Castile supporters gathered at Loring Park in Minneapolis at 5 p.m. Saturday.

After the verdict, the city of Saint Anthony, Minnesota announced that Officer Yanez is no longer on the police force.
