Was Philando a Police Target?

Philando Castile: a little bit more of what we _may_ know in spite of folks posting these poorly-written articles from (conservative) websites/blogs that are known to be biased and not credible, insisting that Philando was an “armed robbery suspect.” (All the stuff I’ve sorted through on that very notion doesn’t add up, and in fact it has all kinds of holes.)

“He had been pulled over at least 52 times in recent years in and around the Twin Cities and given citations for minor offenses including speeding, driving without a muffler and not wearing a seat belt.

Many charges were dismissed, but Castile pleaded guilty to some, mostly for driving after his license was revoked and driving with no proof of insurance. However, those two charges also were the most frequently dismissed, along with failing to wear a seat belt.

The records show no convictions for more serious crimes.”

Thought: was he targeted, or is 52 times just happenstance? Question: did that cop know exactly who he was pulling over when he went after him?
