Alton Sterling, a 37 yr old Baton Rouge man who was shot & killed in July 2016 by two city police officers will not find justice even in death. The story just broke nation wide that the officers involved in Sterling's death won’t be facing any charges stemming from the incident which claimed the life of Alton. This case is just the latest to join the ranks of incidents where police officers are caught on camera using unnecessary force which result in the death of an unarmed Black or Brown citizen and are not charged with murder or even manslaughter. Folks nation wide are outraged over the news, but not surprised by the lack of justice shown toward the family. #RestInPower to Alton Sterling! #sayhisname
