As much as I respect police for what they do, watching the latest video of the Alton Sterling slaying by Baton Rouge police, it’s hard to view this as anything but some form of murder. I realize Sterling had a gun but the officers had him pinned to the ground, and this didn’t seem to be a life or death situation for anybody.
So why did police have their guns drawn at all? From what I saw, the officers weren’t in danger.
Police rules of engagement in this country have to be changed, period.
That’s what I think after watching this video, but what do you think? Leave your thoughts below.
