There is a
saying in America, and that is, “Innocent Until Proven Guilty.” So, I will let
the courts decide, if the police officer who shot Alton Sterling, was justified
to do so. And you should too.

But, aside
from the debate, it is fascinating to watch social media, and many mainstream
media outlets, ignoring many of the facts behind who Alton Sterling truly was.
Of course, it is heartbreaking to watch tears flow from family members, but the
story should not stop there when learning the facts. Court documents and arrest
records show, Mr. Sterling was anything but an “innocent” man, just trying to
sell some CD’s outside a liquor store.

court and arrest documents show Mr. Sterling had been a member of the
Bloods gang, had a list of offenses including battery, assault, drugs and
weapons charges, and he owed at least $25,000 in child support.

He was also
a registered pedophile, since he impregnated a 14-year-old girl when he
was 20 years of age.

Didn’t hear
that on the news? Wasn’t in the meme bashing cops? Yeah, I didn’t hear about
that either. But, the documents prove it.

Although a
past “rap sheet” does not automatically qualify you for “death by cop,” it does
offer an inside look at the type of person Mr. Sterling was. A cell phone
video, which starts well after the altercation between police officers and Mr.
Sterling began, does NOT tell the whole story.

invite you to do some research, and learn the difference between what Mr.
Sterling’s past truly says vs. what the mainstream media and many on social
media want you to believe.

I support
our men and women in blue – and these types of stories, along with the
erroneous accusations immediately plaguing our police officers, that lack
actual substance and truth, is getting tiresome. If the police officer did
something wrong, it sounds like an investigation will find out, and he will
face charges. There are bad police officers, just like there are bad priests,
rabbis, teachers, moms, uncles, etc. But to brand the officer guilty without
knowing even 1% of the facts, is just downright wrong by the public, and part
of the problem that is all but becoming an epidemic in today’s society.
