I am honored to share some AMAZING news with y’all.
From about a week ago to today, he has not shown no signs of schizophrenia and there is a chance through this HORRIFIC incident that he may not have those symptoms ever again (Not to dampen anyone’s spirit but as someone very knowledgeable in this area, I emphasize the word “chance”). But nonetheless, this is nothing short of miraculous.
Khaleel is now allowing pre-approved visitors, but not everyone because he is still in recovery, so please message us or contact Corydon and we can connect you to the appropriate people. We need to make sure Khaleel is 100% OK with all visitors. No exceptions. I will be heading out to visit him and I know he loves Pure Leaf Extra Sweet Tea (JUST LIKE ME!!) and Chocolate Chip cookies.
Khaleel has recovered as much as possible. He has been smiling, laughing, eating a lot more. He is still fighting but things are looking up. He it talking and jokes around. He can play his guitar. He can sing. He CAN DO HAND STANDS. He’s even gone outside to eat. He has memory loss and doesn’t really remember what happened or much before that. But he is aware of his situation.
Currently, his mental health is stable. Obviously, he still needs to be monitored and will ALWAYS have brain damage. But the most important thing is that he is alive and well.
Thank you to EVERYONE who sent good vibes/positive energy, prayed, etc… Thank you. His recovery is truly extraordinary. We love you, Khaleel. And we send our love to his family and friends too. Aviance, we love you. Naomi, we love you. Tommy, Bella, Justin, we love y’all too!
We have been asked about donating to our work. We do not currently have that set up yet, as we await certain registration processes. If you would like to contribute, you are more than welcome and anything is always appreciated. We are 100% volunteers so fighting for justice actually isn’t free for us. But some things, just have to be done.
We send all our love, strength, and support to Momma Valerie, Uncle Clarence, our sister Allyzsa and the rest of the Castile family during this period of immense injustice.
Once again, the “justice” system has failed the Black community. There isn’t even a drop of justice in this verdict. Yanez murdered Philando and walks away a free man. He recklessly put the lives of Diamond and Dae-Anna at risk by firing rounds in their direction, one bullet headed towards Diamond was stopped by the center counsel and another bullet was just 16″ from Dae-Anna in the backseat.
For the jury to find Jeronimo Yanez “Not Guilty” on all counts is pure bullshit.
For folks looking to gather together, a collection of groups have organized a gathering at the Capitol at 7. If you plan to attend, please be safe. Thanks.
As the jury deliberates the charges in the #YanezTrial, we wait.
I want y’all to know a few things that haven’t really been publicized.
One of the jurors that made it to jury selection was related to Officer Yanez. How she made it that far into the process is super sus… Another juror works in the SAME building as Yanez’s wife Lyndsay. But they claim they do not know each other. And then ANOTHER juror lied on her Voir Dire (the pre-trial jury questionnaire to check for neutrality and to vet jurors for bias) after we discovered very pro-police posts, anti-BLM and anti-Kaepernick posts on her social media accounts. Her excuse was that she had no recollection of making those posts… (Watch ytness work…*pukes*).
We must continue to pray that the jurors do the right thing and send all the positive energy and strength to the Castile family during this stressful time.
I have been informed that Khaleel’s sister has suffered a medical emergency and is at the hospital.
Please pray, send good vibes/positive energy, etc…. for her, for Khaleel, and for their mother who is dealing with more than anyone should have to.
Naomi, we got your back. Aviance, we love you. Khaleel, we continue to pray for your recovery.
Khaleel is being transferred out of ICU and into a rehabilitation facility!! This is nothing short of a miracle. What a warrior… Please continue to pray, send good vibes, strength, love and positive energy his way!!
In the early hours of March 15th, 2017 on the Eastside of STP, Cordale Handy was suffering through an episodic attack. SPPD arrived on the scene and fired multiple shots at him, ultimately killing him.
From what we know, from talking to residents in the apartment building and witnesses who saw it happen, there was a domestic dispute going on. Not an assault. Cordale was suffering a possible paranoid schizophrenic attack or having adverse effects from a medication he had been given.
Cordale’s family has not been given the time of day by the chief or the mayor of STP. We had to demand a community forum when they tried to hold a sham one. But the wool has been lifted. We will not be fooled.
While we pray for #KhaleelThompson to pull through after the firing squad-esque style shooting the Crystal PD pulled, we hope the stars align and the universe gives #PhilandoCastile and his family justice. But we have not forgotten about #CordaleHandy.
The Saint Paul Police Department continues to be the deadliest police force in the entire state of MN. And IMO, the sneakiest. Axtell, your PR swag doesn’t fool me.
There are many irons in the fire…but we’re on them on. No more business as usual. Enough is enough. It’s time for a #NewNorth.
