After seeing a rant with the hashtag f…thepolice I decided to write this. I’m very sorry for this families loss and I don’t know what future evidence will be brought forward. I’m only stating what I see. God help this family and community.
It’s very sad Alton Sterling lost his life. It’s sad that racism exist. It’s also sad that every police officer is being convicted in the heart of the public without due process. More evidence may come forward to prove they were guilty but in this latest video here’s what I see.
A grown man, who is a known violent criminal, is disobeying a direct police order to get on the ground.
He is armed. Even if the gun is in his pocket the police are not supposed to try and outdraw someone this isn’t the wild west.
He is then struggling with the officers on the ground and resisting.
That’s all clear from the video that I saw.
Yes his friends say he cops were wrong. If he were my friend and I were there I’d probably say the same thing. It’s an unbelievably terrible thing to see someone you care about be killed. No it’s never happened to me. I can only imagine. I really do pray for his family and friends.
These policemen are worried about making it home to their friends and family. Obey the orders of the police. Let your lawyer fight them.
Again if these policemen did wrong may they be punished to the full extent of the law. But let the courts handle this. In the end no one will get away with anything. God knows and judges all. Don’t judge a whole race by a few thugs and don’t judge all police by a few thug policemen. #Godblesseveryone
