Verquisha Powers
on behalf of Diamond Reynolds
My name is Verquisha Powers, and I have known both Diamond 'Lavish' Reynolds and her boyfriend Philando for close to 10 years. I started this page to help raise funds for my friend and her daughter's future.  

On July 6th around 9 pm Diamond  'Lavish'  Reynolds, her 4 year old daughter, and Philando Castile were pulled over for an alleged broken tail light. The officer approached the vehicle and asked Phil for his license and registration. Phil informed the officer that he had a registered firearm and that the information was in his pocket. The officer requested Phil get it, and when he reached towards his pocket the officer shot him 3-5 times in his left side/arm, killing him. The whole thing was recorded live on Facebook. 

The most disturbing thing about this incidicent is that Lavishs' 4 year old daughter was in the back seat and witnessed the whole thing. She & Lavish have to live with this for the rest of their lives, and will be traumatized by this forever.

The funds from this will help them rebuild their lives after this unexpected tragedy.  

Anything helps. Thank you, and God bless.

After 5 days of deliberating, on 6/16 the world received the devastating news that Officer Yanez was acquitted on all charges in the death of Philando Castile. This news was absolutely heartbreaking because justice was NOT served yet again!

At a community meeting held at the Wellstone Center in St.Paul, Diamond made a statement in reaction to the verdict :

“It’s very unfortunate that an innocent man’s life was taken away not only in front of myself but in front of my child,” she said. “It’s very unfortunate that when things happen in our community, our higher powers — police, judges, whoever — they assassinate our characters and make us look like the bad ones.”

No one should have to feel this way. Their lives will never be the SAME and nothing or no one will ever bring Phil back.
