TRUMP'S DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE DECLINES TO CHARGE ALTON STERLING'S MURDERERS

Background:

In case you can't separate one white cop murder or a black person from another by now. Alton Sterling was the one selling DVDs or something. They were just harassing him as usual, the shop owner didn't mind him selling his wares there.

They found a gun in Sterling's back pocket while he was lying on the ground and shot him while he was lying there.

The white cops that murdered 
Alton Sterling aren't likely to go to any sort of trial at all despite the lip service the state is giving us. The Mighty Mouse run Justice Department (Jeff Sessions) will not be filing charges. 



The news of no federal charges does not mean the officers involved are in the clear. Louisiana Atty. Gen. Jeff Landry's office has said it would look at evidence from the investigation to see whether state charges were warranted. A spokeswoman for Landry did not reply to requests for comment on Tuesday. The officers, Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake II, both white, were put on administrative leave after the shooting. 
Civil rights groups, which have criticized changes in the Justice Department’s approach to policing under Sessions, had closely watched for the announcement on the investigation into Sterling’s death. This week, Baton Rouge was on edge as rumors spread that an announcement was imminent.
