I was the one who posted this video on YouTube and I've got some things to say. First, as the OP posted and as did I, this video does NOT justify the
shooting of Philando Castile. However, this does call into question Diamond Reynolds ability to properly care for her 4 year old daughter and raising
her daughter in a safe environment. There's another video Diamond live streamed of her and her friends smoking weed and drinking liquor around several
children at some gathering where Diamond is sitting in a chair in a garage smoking a blunt while a toddler younger than her daughter is sitting on the
garage floor playing just inches away from her feet. Feel free to check my YouTube channel out and view the rest of the videos I'm going to be
discussing here. www.youtube.com...
Another video Diamond live streamed was of her at home smoking weed and drinking liquor next to her 4 year old daughter. Diamond's own mother, Daphina
Doty was watching her daughter's live stream and was even cracking jokes and told Diamond "Put your t*tties away" along with calling Diamond a savage
for drinking straight out of the liquor bottle. Diamond's mother Daphina KNEW her daughter was getting high and drunk in front of her 4 year old
daughter, but she showed NO concern whatsoever regarding the environment her granddaughter was currently in at the time. That 4 year old little girl
deserves to have someone in her life that will guide her on the right path in and be a positive role model for her.
Another video shows Diamond live streaming on Memorial Day. In the 38 (yes 38) minute video, Diamond is recording herself in a dress from head to toe
slow dancing with music on the tv acting like she's all that and a bag of chips. Of course Diamond is smoking a blunt in this video too. What's really
heartbreaking is hearing her 4 year old daughter constantly asking if she can play outside and Diamond IGNORES her several times even YELLING at her
daughter to get out of her room. She also suggests her daughter can go stand in a corner. There's times in the video the daughter is seen sitting on
Diamond's bed while Diamond is recording herself smoking a blunt trying to look sexy or something. This little girl is watching her mothers every move
and it will truly be devastating if she grows up emulating her mothers atrocious lifestyle.
In another video live streamed by Diamond, she's again smoking a blunt in the car while Philando is driving and her 4 year old daughter is in the
backseat. In the video, Diamond says 'it's disrespectful to leave lipstick on a blunt' and proceeds to wipe off her lipstick from her lips. So let me
get this straight. It's disrespectful to leave lipstick on a blunt, but not disrespectful to smoke weed, drink liquor and curse not only in front of
your daughter but at your daughter too??
Now, Diamond Reynolds live streamed and PUBLICLY posted all of those videos for the world to see, so she's fair game here. If anyone is
'assassinating' her character, it is HER. Yes, smoking in front of children is bad, but people get high off of weed, NOT off of cigarettes. Since
she's publicly posting her live stream videos, she obviously sees no issues with the type of lifestyle and environment she's subjecting her daughter
to. Again, I've NEVER said these videos justify the shooting. I've also NEVER gave my opinion on wether or not I feel the shooting was justified. Yes,
her losing her boyfriend the way she did is tragic. But instead of thinking about her character being 'assassinated' by videos she herself PUBLICLY
posted, try thinking about that precious 4 year old little girl who's already witnessed more in her short 4 years on this earth than most people do in
Diamond shows a repetitive history of getting high and drunk in front of her 4 year old daughter while sometimes ignoring her because she's too messed
up during her live streams. We've only caught a glimpse of what she does and how she acts in front of her daughter when the camera is rolling. I can
not imagine what that little girl goes through daily when her mother high and drunk and not live streaming her personal life. Diamond even stated in a
video when she was high and drinking that she keeps her profile public so all her haters can see her and she's got nothing to hide. If Diamond loses
her daughter, it's NOT because I or anyone else shared her public videos. It IS because she CHOSE to get high and drunk in front of her daughter. When
Diamond's mother Daphina was interviewed and asked what she thinks made Diamond pick up her phone and record the aftermath of the shooting, her mother
said and this is a direct quote- "Diamond is a narcissistic Facebook, Twitter, SnapChat junkie." It's absolutely disgraceful to see what Diamond has
subjected her 4 year old daughter to. Anyone trying to defend the character of this woman after reading everything I just wrote, y'all should be
ASHAMED of yourselves!! So #BlackLivesMatter?? What about this little 4 year old girl?? Doesn't her life matter?? Doesn't she deserve to grow up in a
stable environment where she's not watching her mother get high and drunk all the time??
