The fatal police shootings of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota show the U.S. has a “serious problem,” President Barack Obama said Thursday. He said he shares feelings of “anger, frustration and grief” that police killings have triggered across the country.
In his first public reaction to the shootings, Obama said it is clear they were not isolated incidents, adding that the U.S. had “seen such tragedies far too many times.” He said all Americans should be “deeply troubled” by the deaths in Baton Rouge and suburban St. Paul.
“They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve,” Obama wrote in a Facebook post.

Philando Castile was driving with Lavish Reynolds in Falcon Heights, Minnesota Wednesday when his car was pulled over … she says for a broken taillight.
The video starts just after the shooting, but according to Reynolds, the officer asked Castile for his license and registration. She says Castile told the cop he had a pistol on him that was registered, and when he reached for his wallet the officer warned him to stop. Reynolds says Castile actually put his hands back up, but the cop shot him 4 or 5 times.
Castile died after being taken to a local hospital.
The cop says on video, “I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand out.”
An official investigation has been launched.

A close-up, graphic video of the slaying of Alton Sterling has surfaced, igniting fresh calls for the two officers involved to be criminally charged.

The Daily Beast reported Wednesday evening that police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where 37-year-old Alton Sterling was killed early Tuesday morning, tried to seize the surveillance camera footage of the shooting taken from outside the Triple S Food Mart. However, Abdullah Muflahti, the store’s owner, refused to surrender the footage to police without a warrant, and said the Baton Rouge Police Department told him they didn’t want him to see the footage.

“I never received a warrant, but the video was taken anyway,” Muflahi told the Daily Beast.

The second video, which Muflahi shot from his phone, has already been shared thousands of times on social media.
