A recording purportedly of the audio of the police scanner from Castile’s traffic stop indicates Yanez stopped the car because he thought Castile looked like a recent robbery suspect.

“The driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ‘cause of the wide-set nose,” the officer said.

That is how things are, if a suspect is described as wide-set nose, they don't look for a narrow nosed person. If white, do they look for a black? If female do they look for a male?

Now NYC had an attempt to pass regulations for police to not give out descriptions of suspects. Thankfully wiser heads prevailed, for now.
