In Baton Rouge Louisana, police officers shot and killed a Black man at close range. Reports state that #AltonSterling was shot in the chest and back at close range. The U.S. Justice Department will lead a civil rights investigation into the murder. Alton Sterling, 37, was tackled and shot as two cops pinned him to the ground before killing him. Two officers have been named in the fatal shooting of Alton Sterling. Officers Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake were named as the two involved in the shooting. According to a press release by the Baton Rouge Police Department, both officers are on paid leave.
Diamond Reynolds, the girlfriend of #PhilandoCastile recorded and remained on Facebook live throughout the duration of this egregious and savage murder by police. Reynolds, Castile and their 4 year old daughter were stopped for a cracked headlight which Renolds stated was never cracked. Castile posessed a conceal carry permit, and was asked for his license and registration while attempting to retrieve them, the officer pumped bullets into his defenseless body.
In the state of Pennsylvania, thirty some years prior to these savage shootings, cameras were not readily available as they are currently. Nothing has changed. In the case of Major Tillery, the police provided sex and hotel rooms for jail house snitches whose statements would be the only evidence to convict 65 year old Major George Tillery. Tillery is innocent. With new evidence available, we look forward to an exoneration. www.justice4majortillery.info
