THE DEATH OF ALTON STERLING IN LOUISIANA


In Louisiana, Alton Sterling was outside a convenience store where he usually sold CDs and DVDs when the police approached him. We don't know what happened immediately after police approached him. By the time the cell video starts, Sterling is seconds from on his way down to the ground.

And Sterling was already lying on the ground when he was shot to death by what appears to be two or more white (?) police officers. The officer that had a gun to Sterling's head in that moment appears white. 






WARNING:
DO NOT LET 
CHILDREN 
BE ANYWHERE NEAR YOU 
WHEN YOU WATCH 
THE VIDEO BELOW



Regarding the Video

I think I'm hearing a gun shot while the cell phone camera isn't really pointed at anything, inside a car.


By the time the time you can see anything in the video Alton Sterling is scared and struggling on the ground. The cops are screaming Get on the Ground" when he is already on the ground. 








Sounds like police officers - "Get on the ground. Get on the ground. Get on the f*cking ground"


Sounds like Sterling complaining of pain -- maybe in his foot(?)


Sounds like a police officer - "He's got a gun"



You can see a police officer, one one knee, a gun to Sterling's head.


Sounds like a police officer - "You f*cking move, I swear to God...


Sounds like Alton Sterling  "Get offa me"

Then, there's the sound of gun shots and crying from the witnesses
