Press release from Castile family, regarding the violence in St. Paul overnight:
On behalf of Valerie Castile, mother of Philando Castile, she would like to address the recent protests that have taken place locally. She would like for the following statement to be utilized in press materials.
“On behalf of myself and our entire family, we urge all people to remain peaceful in all demonstrations throughout our community and our nation. When demonstrations become violent, it disrespects my son and his memory. Philando was a man of peace and dignity.
