Update on Alton Sterling: Where’s the Body Camera Footage from Officers + His Family Speaks Out

While we we are all still stunned by the July 5th shooting of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, there are a few questions that need to be answered soon. Although the police officers involved have been placed on administrative leave and have not been questioned yet, they were said to be wearing body cameras (which were supposed to help fix issues like this). So, where is the body camera footage and/or the dash cam footage? All we have is phone footage and the longer it takes for these to come out, it makes it seem as if things are being altered.

While we wait on more details, there is one fact that is present and it hurts. A son is without a father.
