Once again, police have gunned down an unarmed Black man for no real discernible reason. This time, the murder took place outside a Louisiana convenience store, where 37-year-old Alton Sterling was selling some music near the front. According to reports, someone called the police and reported that Alton was brandishing a gun…however none was found on him during the attack or after his death.

The grim 48-second cell phone video of the killing outside Triple S. Food Mart shows two police officers tackling and wrestling a heavy-set man in a red shirt against the hood of a car before throwing him to the pavement.

“He’s got a gun,” one officer cries while the pair pinned Sterling to the ground.

“You f—–g move, I swear to God,” the other cop yells, before the two draw their weapons. The terrified bystander turns the camera phone away as five shots ring out — two of which a coroner said struck Sterling in the chest and back.

SMH. We feel like we’ve exhausted all we could possibly say on cases like these. It just has to stop…
