Alton Sterling (July 5, 2016)


The parking lot of the Triple S

       Food Mart in Baton Rouge: Sterling is selling

CDs & DVDs (he was known locally as

       “CD Man”). The grainy but telling


cellphone video of the shooting, posted

       online by a witness, shows officers

tackling Sterling onto a car’s hood

       & rolling him to the pavement, where


they pin him beneath the car’s front bumper.

       Two gun shots, & the bystander drops his cell,

panning his car’s the zebra skin seats. Three more

       shots fired. The officers’ body cameras “fell


off” during the incident, but “the officers feel they

were completely justified,” according to the DA.
