blayne alexander, nblgs nc news washington. stirring up new emotion as more and more people see the latest police dam video of a police officer firing shots at castile. this footage and other information was released. yanez testified that castile i will nignored commands to not pull out his gun, but his girlfriend says he was reaching for his license, not the gun. your listeners have been talking to you about the case. what are you hearing? >> well, folks are shocked and s saddened. that is the beingabeing a aggre heard. because they ask can what is the jury not seeing what they are seeing. a police officer who lost control of the situation that was not escala

your child to tell you what he or she knows. don't assume what your child knows. and third thing very quickly is we always got to reassure young people that they will be okay. always be respectful. answer whatever questions the officer asks. because the number one goal is to get home safely. >> interesting points. so that is snag pais something parents will have a real take away with. >> this is a case where he did everything by the book. he did not anything that any parent would tell your son or daughter to not do. solutions that your listeners are talking about? >> a lot of people saying there definitely needs to be police reform, something that has not been addressed in the right way. they say officers that break the law need to be held accountable and there needs to be more training for police officers and recognizing a person with a mental health issue, that needs
we can deescalate situations where people can walk away a. alive. >> a lot to learn from the situation. thanks. tropical storm cindy isn't expected to make lawful for another 24 hours, but it's already drenching the gulf coast and whipping up high winds. >> and back here at home, i'm tracking a broken line of rain and thunderstorms moving toward the southeast. now, take a look at some of the impact. moving in to thurmont at about 5:00. out
