No charges against officers in Alton Sterling death

No charges will be filed by the State of Louisiana against two white officers in the fatal shooting of a black man.

The Louisiana Attorney General ruled out criminal charges against officer Blane Salamoni who shot and killed Alton Sterling outside a Baton Rouge convenience store where the 37-year-old was selling CDs.

Officer Howie Lake helped to wrestle Sterling to the ground during the struggle that took place in 2016.

Sterling had a gun in his front pocket.

His family is calling the decision biased and say they are disappointed the two officers will not face criminal charges.

Here to talk about this issue is attorney and talk show host Charles Adams and owner of Regal Media Todd A. Smith.
