WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar today issued the following statement on the death of Philando Castile:

“My thoughts are with all those impacted by the tragic death of Philando Castile. There should be a full and thorough investigation into his death. At the same time, we must do more to ensure accountability and trust between our law enforcement and the communities they serve, especially communities of color. I have long supported important policy changes, including videotaped interrogations, reforms to the eyewitness process, body camera trials, diversity in hiring, law enforcement resources and training, and meaningful and consistent outreach to our citizens.”
