The Continued Cop-Killing Of Black Men – The Latest Victim (incl 45 sec vid)

Police Shooting

VICE NEWS   By Harry Cheadle   Posted Wed., July 06, 2016

Just after midnight Tuesday (July 05/06) in a convenience store parking lot, police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, shot and killed a 37-year-old man named Alton Sterling while pinning him to the ground.

The incident, captured on a cell phone camera video that has already spread widely across the internet, is just the latest police shooting of a black person to go viral, the latest tragedy spurring activists to demand change locally and nationally, the latest flashpoint in the ongoing national debate over policing and race in America.

In the video, the cops, who were reportedly responding to a 911 caller who said Sterling had threatened him with a gun, can be seen ordering the man to get on the ground. He doesn’t comply, but also doesn’t appear to make any threatening move toward the officers, both of whom are white.

One of the cops tackles Sterling against the hood of the car, and they both restrain him on the ground. One of them then says, “He’s got a gun!” and an officer can be seen drawing his weapon and holding it close to Sterling.

Then the shot is heard.

The person filming the video drops the phone, and a male voice says, “Oh shit!” and, “They shot him? Oh my fucking goodness” while a woman cries and shots continue to ring out.

According to the local coroner, at least two bullets from the cop’s gun struck Sterling in the chest and back.

The store’s owner, Abdullah Muflahi, has known Sterling for years, and claimed to see the whole thing. He told the Advocate, a local paper, that the cops were “aggressive,” adding that he saw the officers initially use a Taser to little or no effect.

He said cops later took a gun from Sterling’s pocket, but also that the deceased wasn’t holding the weapon or trying to retrieve it during the confrontation.

On Wednesday morning, Sterling’s family and community activists gathered for a press conference at city hall. Mike McClanahan, the head of the local chapter of the NAACP, demanded the release of additional videos showing the shooting in more detail, as well as the firing of the police chief, Carl Dabadie Jr., and the resignation of Kip Holden, the mayor of Baton Rouge. He also called for the arrest of the officers responsible.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
