#SwipeLeft The widow of police shooting victim Alton Sterling condemned trouble on Wednesday that led to officers opening fire with stun guns as the CD seller's first death anniversary was marred by angry protests. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・Police in Baton Rouge pepper-sprayed demonstrators and used tasers as they made seven arrests as anger erupted over Sterling's death while pinned to the ground by two officers a year ago today.
The arrests came after demonstrators attempted to break through barriers outside Baton Rouge police headquarters. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・Baton Rouge police later issued a photograph which apparently showed a black panther holding a taser during the clashes. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・But protesters said police fired tasers and stun guns unnecessarily as they tried to exercise their right to enter a police station.
Members of the New Black Panther Party had arrived earlier in the day to lead the demonstrations. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・Sterling, 37, was shot last July as he lay on the ground pinned down by two police officers and his dying moments was caught on cell phone video which led to the officers being suspended. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・But the woman who had three children with Sterling, speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, said she did not condone the confrontations with police. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・'This is a sad day…a sad day. It is already difficult enough with Alton gone and our three children missing their daddy every day,' said Andrika Williams Sterling. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・'I understand people are angry about the way Alton died and the police ain't never gonna come before the court for it. But I can't condone any violence or trouble. It should not happen. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・'I have had to move out of Baton Rouge because of what happened to Alton. The grief was too much. But Alton was a peaceful man. He wouldn't want anybody getting hurt on his behalf.'
