A brutal execution of an innocent Black man at the hands of two suspected race soldiers acting as police officers has sparked international outrage.
Alton Sterling, 37, was shot executed at point blank range by white suspects Howie Lake and Blaine Salamoni . The U.S. Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is leading an investigation into what happened. And the president of the NAACP’s local branch is calling for the city’s police chief and mayor to resign.
Howie Lake has a history of shooting Black males, because in 2014 he was one of the officers suspended for shooting a Black man named Kevin Knight.
An initial video of these two suspected race soldiers killing Alton Sterling went viral. Now a second video has emerged from another angle showing that Sterling was not resisting arrest nor was he reaching for a weapon, as the officers claimed.
Watch the video below of Sterling’s Constitutional rights being explicitly violated.
