Alton Sterling’s murder sparks outage in Hip-Hop, Hollywood, and social media


The unjustifiable murder of 37-year-old Alton Sterling at the hands of several white police officers has sparked protests and outrage throughout the African American community.  

On July 5, police reportedly responded to an anonymous call claiming Alton was carrying a firearm while selling CDs and DVDs outside the Triple-S Food Mart in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

Shortly after the two uniformed officers arrived on the scene, one of the officer mercilessly wrestled the father of five to the ground and shot him six times as he lay pinned to the pavement, according to video captured by a bystander..

In the wake of Alton’s untimely death, heavy-hearted Hip-Hop and Hollywood honcho, as well as the general public, have taken to social media with their reactions to the heinous crime of murder that was inflicted on a member of their community yet again.

Sterling is the 558th person to be killed by police, according to the Guardian. 

Today, Alton’s wife and 15-year-old son appeared at a press conference during which the teenager broke down in tears as his mother spoke eloquently about their family’s loss and said, “as a mother I have now been forced to raise a son who is going to remember what happened to his father…I hurt more for him and his loss.”
