The Associated Press reported Tuesday (May 2nd) that
The Justice Department had decided not to bring any federal charges against two white Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officers in the killing last July of 37-year-old Alton Sterling, who was black. Sterling was killed during a struggle with the two officers outside a Baton Rouge convenience store where he was selling homemade CDs. A call had been made to police from someone who said Sterling had threatened him with a gun. Cell phone video showed him pinned on his back by police when he was shot, but the officers said he tried to reach for a gun in his pocket. State authorities could still pursue their own criminal charges in the case.
Not surprise, especially with Jeff Session as AG. SMH Black Lives Matter!
