Earlier this year, the family of Philandro Castile, the Black man slain by a police officer during a traffic stop, settled with the city of St. Anthony, MN, for $3 million. Now Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, who live-streamed the shooting on Facebook, has also settled for $800,000. At a press conference, Raynolds said: “While no amount of money can change what happened, bring Philando back, or erase the pain that my daughter and I continue to suffer, I do hope that closing this chapter will allow us to get our lives back and move forward.”
