If the real courts won't do anything… maybe the court of public opinion will.

As we previously reported, Alton Sterling died early Tuesday morning when two Baton Rouge, Louisiana police officers pinned him down and either one or both shot him multiple times.

Since Alton's family — including his five children — will never be able to see their father again, we thought it was only fair that we share a little bit about the men who ended his life.

Blane Salamoni (above, left) is a 28-year-old who has been with the Baton Rouge Police Department for just four years.

His mother, Melissa Salamoni, used to be a police captain herself, and his father, Noel Salamoni, was nearly the city's Police Chief only a few years ago. Those are some friends in high places.

On the other hand, Howie Lake II (above, right) is a 28-year-old who has been a Louisiana cop for only three years, meaning Blane was actually the senior officer of the pair. Unlike his partner, the former college footballer doesn't have family ties to the force.

Interestingly, Blane and Howie each won the BRPD's Life Saving Award in 2015.

The officer responsible for Philando Castile's death has not yet been identified due to Minnesota's heavy protections in favor of police…

Do U think Blane and Howie will be held accountable for their actions??
