Alton Sterling's Teenage Son Pleads for Calm: 'Protest in Peace, Not Guns'
'Everyone needs to protest in the right way," Cameron Sterling said.
The teenage son of Louisiana shooting victim Alton Sterling has spoken out for the first time since his father was killed by police, appealing for peace.
Speaking in Baton Rouge, 15-year-old Cameron Sterling asked for calm when he addressed reporters Wednesday.
“You can protest but I want everyone to protest the right way. Protest in peace. Not guns, not drugs, not alcohol. Not violence. Everyone needs to protest in the right way,” he said.
Cameron said he and his father had a “best friend bond” and if he were alive today he would tell him “I love you so much.”
He said he misses his father “a lot,” after he was killed on July 5 in a deadly confrontation with Baton Rouge police.
Cameron told reporters Wednesday: "I truly feel that my father was a good man and he will always be a good man."
The two officers involved in Alton Sterling’s death have been put on paid administrative leave.
