Officers Will Not Be Charged For Alton Sterling’s Death
Though this news isn’t at all surprising, it’s definitely disappointing.
The two white police officers who shot and killed Alton Sterling outside a Baton Rouge convenience store will not be charged in connection with his death.
The Department of Justice ruled that Officers Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake will not face any federal charges for shooting Sterling dead while he was unarmed and subdued on the ground.
According to the New York Post, Justice Department officials were planning to announce the findings on an ongoing investigation they had been conducting on the incident within the next 24 hours, but sources leaked the information that they would not be bringing any charges against the officers before they got a chance to let that information out to the public.
Are you at all shocked by the fact that these two killer cops will get to go free and go back to the force as if nothing happened? We aren’t…
