On both the federal and state levels respectively, both the United States Department of Justice and  Jeff Landry, Louisiana Attorney General, determined their offices would not pursue charges against officers related to the killing of Alton Sterling.

A family has lost a loved one in a tragic manner that will forever impact their lives.
We all feel so much sympathy for the Sterling family.

Police are licensed and trained to kill as a part of their job. In most cities and states, there are laws to protect them if there are ever legal repercussions of their actions while in the line of duty.

Communities around the country are shaken and broken but we must NEVER LET A HARD TRUTH HUMBLE US.
In recent years, the saying ” America’s system in not built for us”.

What do we do when the harsh truths are trying to break the foundation of our community?
I lean to a wiser voice for the answer.

” We need to build movements that matter. Movements that increase the number of people who are actively engaged in improving quality of life in their community. It’s about figuring out how to strategize and actually execute, not just talk about, ways to make a difference.”  

– Raymond A. Jetson, Founder of Metromorphosis

Here are some references to the organizations/ businesses mentioned that are building movements that matter to the future of Baton Rouge and the world:
