When will enough be enough?
As you've surely heard by now, Alton Sterling became the latest victim of police brutality early Tuesday morning when he was shot at least five times by Louisiana cops.
The 37-year-old was selling CDs outside of a convenience store in Baton Rouge when two officers responded to a call at around 12:35 a.m. that a man matching Alton's description was threatening others with a gun.
However, video surfaced later on Tuesday that seemingly showed just how violently the two officers treated Alton before fatally shooting the father-of-five in the back after he was already pinned down with his hands restrained.
Thankfully, Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards is not going to let another senseless murder simply pass by unnoticed.
"I have full confidence that this matter will be investigated thoroughly, impartially and professionally"
Thank you, John!
According to the Governor, in addition to the DOJ, the FBI's New Orleans Division and Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Louisiana, and the Louisiana State Police will all be working on the case.
With that said, Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr. also issued a press conference on Wednesday claiming to want answers as well.
Ch-ch-check out the NoLa police chief's statement (below)!!!
Of course they have to say he was armed… but do you believe it??
Rest in peace, Alton.
