The NAACP as well as Black Live Matter are in full force, and out to lay waste to any attempt at a sane, controlled investigation of the recent police shooting of Alton Sterling. Here are some FACTS that you need to know.
Not because it will change the facts of the shooting, but because the left, the media, and all the activist groups are refusing to tell the truth.
He fathered 5 children with different women.
Quinyetta McMillon, the mother of Sterling’s oldest kid, who is 15, has said she is hurt, now that her son has to grow up without his Father:
“As a mother, I have now been forced to raise a son who is going to remember what happened to his father, that I can’t take away from him,” McMillion told reporters this morning. “He is at an age of understanding. I hurt more for him and his loss as a parent. One of the greatest fears is to see your child hurt and know there’s nothing you can do about it.”
No, no there isn’t. These things are best solved by following the commands of police, typically.
Back in 2000, he was convicted of having sexual intercourse with a minor.
Sterling was a registered sex-offender who had “carnal knowledge of a juvenile” on September 20, 2000 in his home state of Louisiana. The details of the crime are still being looked into, but it thus far paints a picture of the the character of the man.
In 2015, Sterling failed to register as a sex-offender, so a warrant was issued for that, and other crimes.
Since 1996, Sterling had been accused of numerous crimes and was building quite a rap sheet. Among the list was aggravated battery, simple criminal damage to property and unauthorized entry, and domestic abuse battery.
Sterling pleaded guilty to illegally carrying a firearm and possession of marijuana back in 2009
Sterling was found guilty and sentenced to 5 years after being found carrying marijuana with the intent to sell, as well as illegally carrying a weapon.
The gun found on his body at the time of death had been carried illegally.
Though Louisiana is an open-carry state, Sterling was on probation at the time of the shooting, meaning he was unlawfully carrying the gun.
The police were called because there was reports that he was threatening and brandishing a gun. That alone is reason to have weapons drawn on you.
The media have been going non-stop, talking about the mans family yet refusing to inform about the mans recent past and activities. Black Lives Matter, a racist hate group, jumps right up there and demands blood…the evidence, facts, and investigation be damned.
Alton Sterling’s attorney said that he was a respected member of the black community…Really? A sex-offender with multiple other criminal offenses is a ‘respected’ member? The bar isn’t very high, and it shows…
No. Of course not. Sterling could have committed any crime, and I mean any, and the wagons would still circle around him, guns pointed out. It’s never about the truth, it’s about sides, it’s about race, it’s about getting revenge.
The truth be damned.
