REPORT: Here’s Alton Sterling’s Dark Past That The Media Isn’t Reporting
Immediately following the death of Alton Sterling Tuesday morning in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in which he attempted to reach for the gun in his pocket while being apprehended by the police, the liberal media began running stories about racial violence and policy brutality.
What most of these outlets refused to cover, however, was Sterling’s extensive criminal history, which included a bevy of charges involving property crimes, domestic violence, battery and even child molestation.
For instance, court documents compiled by Heavy.com showed that in 2009, Sterling became involved in a wrestling match with a police officer after the officer tried to pat him down. During the ensuing altercation, a black semi-automatic gun fell out of his waistband.
The documents may be viewed below:
The documents also revealed that in September of 2000, Sterling was hauled off to prison for having impregnated a 14-year-old girl.
“The document says that Sterling, then 20, had been dating the victim for about seven months and having sexual intercourse with her in her bedroom,” the website reported. “The charging document says he admitted to the mother having sex with her daughter and exhibited an ‘I don’t care’ attitude.”
After serving his sentence, Sterling then failed to register as a sex offender and notify the authorities of his change of address.
His record also included charges of attempting to distribute drugs, illegally possessing a firearm and even breaking into a woman’s home.
The guy was, for all intents and purposes, a dangerous man whose actions the police could not predict.
Many questions about this Tuesday’s shooting remained to be answered, but one thing was for certain — the police had every reason on Earth to approach him with extreme caution, and the subsequent shooting was not likely motivated by any sort of racial animus or bias.
