.. a real tragedy ..

.. but a tragedy that could have been avoided ..

.. Sterling died as a result of a police – involved shooting at a convenience store in Baton Rouge , LA the other day . Was he a dangerous man ? No ..

.. but , what made a differene ? he was armed . The Boton Rouge police wanted to aRREST Sterling , and he resisted . When he tried to get his  i.d. , the police thought that he ws reaching for his gun . Real Bad Idea ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. Sterling should have stopped resisting . The cops could have reached in and retrieved his wallet and his gun . He should have stopped resisting , but he did not ..

.. This is a tragedy that could have been avoided . Also , it still needs to be fully investigated . The locals need time to fully investigate what happened , and the facts of the case may well change ..
