Following the death of Alton Sterling on Tuesday morning in Baton Rouge, Louisiana – in which he attempted to reach for a gun in his pocket while being apprehended by police – the liberal media quickly began telling a story about racial injustice and police brutality.
What they did not mention during this narrative was that Sterling had an extensive criminal history, with charges ranging from domestic violence to child molestation.
Court documents revealed that in 2009, Sterling became involved in a wrestling match with a police officer after the officer attempted to pat him down. During the altercation, a black semi-automatic gun fell out of his waistband.
And in 2000, Sterling was imprisoned for getting a 14-year-old girl pregnant. The then 20-year-old Sterling had been dating the victim for about seven months and having sexual intercourse with her in her bedroom.
“The charging document says he admitted to the mother to having sex with her daughter and exhibited an ‘I don’t care’ attitude,” the report alleges.
After serving his sentence, Sterling then failed to register as a sex offender and notify the court of his change of address.
He also has charges of attempting to distribute drugs, illegally possessing a firearm, and even breaking into a woman’s home.
The bottom line is Sterling has a long history of being violent and unpredictable. While many questions remain about the shooting, one thing is certain, police had good reason to approach Sterling with caution.
