Philando Castile shooting: Acknowledging police were wrong doesn't mean you don't support them

Philando Castile, a licensed gun owner, was shot and killed during a traffic stop by Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez in July 2016. Dash cam footage was released Tuesday after Yanez was acquitted last week of manslaughter and charges that he endangered Castile’s girlfriend and her 4-year-old-daughter. Both were in the car when he was shot.

Antonia Okafor of EmPOWERED, a second amendment advocate, discussed the implications of this alarming incident for conservatives, legal gun owners, and Black Lives Matters on "For What It's Worth."

"You can call out the bad apples ... and still encourage and support the police force," Okafor said.
