Philando Castile, 32, was shot and killed by a St. Anthony police officer Wednesday evening.

The next day, protestors and activists gathered outside Gov. Mark Dayton's residence in St. Paul, demanding justice.

It's a familiar scene. And often times, the protesters' demands of punishing police are not met. So BringMeTheNews asked some of them: Why do you still come out to demonstrate?

Hear their answers in the video above.

Gov. Dayton held a news conference that afternoon. You can watch the entire thing below:
