still if the shoudler belt and the lap belt are connected at the same point and his weight pullin down and to the left is going to pull the lap belt the same way not just sit there saggin.
it obvious the belt is further up under his shirt. look again at the angles.
ETA" well actually i forgot that that is a mirrored picture, so it would be down and to the right, towards the buckle.
ETA: not only that the black is not even the same color of the belt, the belt is almost the same color as his pants.

The gun by the car looks like a Smith&Wesson M&P. It has the distinctive grip design when you zoom in on it and of course the square glock style slide for which Smith was sued and now pays royalties to glock for.

Sure, people can have more than one gun.
My primary point is that the "gun in lap" claim is wrong. A gun was recovered at the scene; I haven't seen where more than one was recovered.
The dark blob alleged to be a gun looks absolutely nothing like the gun on the asphalt; but the argument alleging it is a gun points to the surveillance video - which is clearly different than the recovered gun.
Castile was ridin' dirty. He made a dumb mistake that cost him his life. Why can't we all just own up to the fact his girlfriend stated in her unrehearsed video?
He told the officer he had a gun ... and then started reaching ... for something.
Why? Why do you tell a guy pointing a gun in your face ... that you have a firearm ... and then start reaching for *sh!t*?
But attorney Thomas Kelly tells the Star Tribune newspaper that Officer Jeronimo Yanez thought 32-year-old Castile looked like someone police had been seeking in a recent robbery.
Kelly told The Associated Press that Yanez was reacting to seeing that gun when he drew his own weapon.
Officer Yanez would later tell investigators that he feared for his life and that he believed Mr. Castile was trying to grab a gun. But Mr. Choi, the prosecutor, suggested a different narrative. He said that Mr. Castile had gone beyond what the law required in alerting Officer Yanez to his gun, and that he had never drawn the weapon. Paramedics eventually found the weapon, a .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun, in the pocket of his shorts as they were positioning him on a backboard. There was no round in the chamber.
