A prosecutor in the USA state of Louisiana has ruled out criminal charges for two white police officers in the 2016 killing of African American Alton Sterling, whose shooting triggered nationwide protests against police brutality.
Lake tried "tazing" Sterling at least two times - "with little or no effect", according to Landry.
However, attorneys L. Chris Stewart and Brandon DeCuir, who represent Alton Sterling's five children, say Landry is to meet beforehand Tuesday morning with relatives of the slain main. As with many cases before Alton, the system has prioritized absolving the perpetrators instead of vigorously seeking fairness for the deceased, their family, and the larger communities in which they live.
Sketchy Rumor Claims Apple Will Introduce PRODUCT(RED) iPhone X
Apple is poised to unveil three new iPhone X models this year, rumors say, turning the iPhone X design into an entire lineup . We won't know if this in fact the case until Apple releases its next earnings report, likely around late April or early May.
Democratic Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said state prosecutors had followed the law in evaluating the case.
"I know the Sterling family is hurting", Landry told reporters. I know they may not agree with this decision.
While the officers were initially able to move Sterling toward their police vehicle, Landry said Sterling "attempted to resist".
Speaking at a news conference, Landry said it was "reasonable" to conclude Sterling was under the influence of drugs during the struggle with the officers "and that contributed to his non-compliance".
Landry did not take any questions from reporters. Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul has scheduled a news conference for 11:30 a.m.
The Baton Rouge officers then encountered Sterling, 37, selling CDs outside of a convenience store, and fatally shot him during an encounter that lasted less than 90 seconds. Officer Howie Lake II helped wrestle Sterling to the ground, but didn't fire his gun.
The shooting came amid increased scrutiny of fatal encounters between police and black men.
India putting regional peace at stake: Pakistani President
He said that Pakistan was ready to extend a hand of co-operation to the regional countries, but "taking it as a weakness will be a unsafe mistake".
Cellphone videos of the shooting on social media sparked protests that led to almost 200 arrests in Baton Rouge.
"We will hold a news conference where we will release video footage from all body cameras, store surveillance, and auto cams". Just before the shooting, one of those officers yelled that Sterling had a gun.
Castile, a school cafeteria worker and licensed gun owner, was fatally shot during a traffic stop by St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez, who said the victim was reaching for his gun. However, the phone footage from the scene never showed Sterling reaching for the gun.
Federal authorities concluded there wasn't enough evidence to prove Salamoni or Lake willfully deprived Sterling of his civil rights, or that the officers' use of force was objectively unreasonable.
In May 2017, the US Department of Justice announced it would not press charges against the officers.
Landry's office announced the decision Tuesday (March 27) after first notifying Sterling's relatives in person. The caller said the man pulled out a gun.
Both officers were placed on administrative leave but faced no further punishment.
