Not long ago were people taking to their social media accounts to speak out about the unjust killings of black men by police officers in different parts of the United States. And just like that another man has joined the list, sparking outrage. Yesterday a 37 year-old man by the name of Alton Sterling was killed by Baton Rouge police while selling CD’s. The officers were recorded by an on looker’s cell phone.
As a video showing the brutal murder of Alton Sterling by the hands of police has gone viral, many people, including celebrities have voiced their concerns for Black lives and the direction America is heading in. A senseless act at the hands of two Baton Rouge police officers have ended the life of a 37-year-old father, who was only selling CDs in front of a convenience store when he was approached. Police say an anonymous caller said the man selling those items had a gun on him, which led to authorities arrival. It’s unclear what happened afterwards, however, the video shows Sterling pinned on his back to the ground, police arming themselves, and firing several shots into his chest.
Since then, the video of the shooting hit the internet which is causing outrage and a vocal response from many, including several in comedy. Here’s how several comedians are responding about the incident.
