ACLU Statement on Alton Sterling Shooting

BATON ROUGE - Details surrounding the shooting last night of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, continue to emerge. In reaction, ACLU of Louisiana Executive Director Marjorie Esman issued the following statement:

“Alton Sterling was shot to death while he was on the ground and two police officers were on top of him. Sadly, Mr. Sterling is the 122nd Black person to be killed by U.S. law enforcement this year. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and the city of Baton Rouge.




We live in a police state. We already have marshal law. We are just so numb and indoctrinated, that we fail to notice.

The para military work against racial groups, because they can. They target poor for the same reason. Different means suppress different classes. The vehicle that controls the masses looks the other way, too distracted with shooting fish in barrels, when real crimes are taking place.

If it's not constructed white collar crime, then it's those who feed on inflicting misery on others, that buy the police/para military. It goes all the way up the ladder of government, sociopaths who can thrive in society with the right connections. Have black skin and practice your second amendment rights. You are dead.

There is a class war in this country. You either play along, or you don't. The problem is systemic.

Here's hoping for a human running the system.
