Alton Sterling: Another Brotha Murdered By Police

alton-sterling-10

His name was Alton Sterling, and like many before him, he was another statistic in a never-ending police campaign against unarmed black men and women.

Sterling was a 37 year-old Baton Rouge native who was selling CD’s outside a store. Apparently, someone thought it was suspicious and called the police. When cops Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake II, both of whom are white, showed up, a struggle ensued that resulted in Sterling getting shot multiple times while being pinned to the ground. Both cops are placed on administrative leave, as expected.

The store owner said that Sterling was unarmed. Salamoni and Lake say otherwise. There was none. Even if he had one, he was literally in no position to use it being heavily restrained. Plus, Louisiana is an Open-Carry state. I guess that only applies to white folks, huh?

The Department of Justice is conducting an investigation. Yet, many – including myself – already see a ‘no conviction‘ verdict in the future for those two crackers. There wasn’t one for Trayvon, Sandra, Eric or Aiyana, to name a few. So, pardon me while I tell you to fuck off when you say that ‘justice will be serve’ or how we need to ‘wait for the facts’.

Footage of the violent encountered was captured on video which is currently viral all over social and news media along with taping of Sterling’s oldest son and mother of his children suffering. Yet, as usual, white assholes will creep out to spew their racist crap, and the news media will try to bring up Sterling’s criminal record.

Oh wait, they already have.

  1. I went to Bible study and prayed about Alton and this sick world we live in.

    I should be beyond mad but I’m not. Sadly, I expect this kind terrorism from cops.If they’re not racist,they are out of control. I thought about a family friend of ours.She’s mentally I’ll but lives a normal life. Occasionally, she gets sick and do some crazy things.Her grandmother wondered what she do with her? My nephew is also bipolar and in the past,we called the police to handle him but if you ask me would ,I recommend them again, I would say if possible try to subdue them yourself,then take them to the hospital/ call the medics because, they too get killed unjustly.

    As I’ve said before, I have never stood for the U.S.flag because of my beliefs about it. I couldn’t stand for something that I knew wasn’t true .Yes, I would get in trouble for it as a result. One of my teachers sent me to the office ..I guess in her attempt to scare me into submission. I showed her otherwise as the principal told her that I didn’t have to. People like Alton,Freddy, Eric,Rodney,Tamir, Sandra etc, police victims of the past,present and future are reasons that I don’t do it.

    I don’t know what some cops call them selves doing. By doing this they think that Black/ POC will be intimidated and surrender to them. It may be scary,taxing,painful and discouraging but I spite of the constant pessimism, I read the scripture about the three Hebrew boys who was put in the bowl of fire because of their will against standing against the wrongdoing of the King. I loved the idea that no matter how much King Nebuchadnezzar tried to intimate them wit the fire they stood their round.At the end they end up victorious. If there is an injustice being done against me, I hope that I would be brave enough to stand for the truth.
