Choi: "No reasonable officer, knowing, seeing and hearing what Officer Yanez did at the time would have used deadly force under these circumstances."
Choi: "It is important to remember that we still must prove these allegations in court, and Officer Yanez is presumed innocent until he is found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. I ask the public for its continued trust and patience as the court process moves forward and we strive to achieve justice for Philando Castile, his family and friends .... "
Choi: "I have given Officer Yanez every benefit of the doubt on his use of deadly force. But I cannot allow the death of a motorist who was lawfully carrying a firearm ... to go unaccounted for."
