Scoop B Selects: J-Batters drops “Alton Sterling 6 Shots” video, challenges court case with “Justice 4 J-Batters” docu-series

The shooting of Alton Sterling created a national outrage in 2016.

Sterling, then a 37-year-old black man, was shot several times at close range while held down on the ground by two Baton Rouge Police Department officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Media reports indicated that the police officers involved were attempting to control Sterling’s arms and he was shot after allegedly reaching for a gun in his pocket.

The shooting was recorded by multiple bystanders and as a result, the shooting led to protests in Baton Rouge and a request for a civil rights investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Department of Justice investigated but in May 2017 decided that it would not file criminal charges against the police officers.

This issue hits close to home for Buffalo, NY lyricist J-Batters. See more here: 

Additionally, his “Justice 4 J Batters” docu-series touches on it and proclaims his innocence.
