Chief Refuses To Fire Officer In Sterling Shooting Despite Mayor Demands
Baton Rouge Mayor Sharon Weston Broome and activists have called on Police Chief Carl Dabadie to fire Officer Blane Salamoni, who fatally shot 37-year-old Alton Sterling during a struggle outside a convenience store on July 5, 2016.
It is a typical play out of a playbook that cares nothing about due process, the law and what is right.
The Department of Justice have declined to file charges which makes charges from the State highly unlikely so the next step for the so called “social justice warriors,” FIRE HIM.
In this case, Chief Dabadie stood tall by simply telling the mayor in a May 26th letter to “let the criminal process conclude.”
Salamoni and a second officer who tried to subdue Sterling remain on paid administrative leave while Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s office investigates whether state charges are warranted.
Of course they aren’t. A novice can look at Graham v. Connor and tell you that so we will wait and see whether there are any novice’s in Landry’s office.
