On Tuesday, video surfaced showing a police officer in Baton Rouge, Louisiana fatally shooting 37-year-old Alton Sterling outside of a convenience store.
As local authorities and the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division begins its investigation, many people have taken to social media to convey their thoughts on shooting and growing number of similar incidents.
Redskins' safety Duke Ihenacho was one of those people, and on Wednesday, expressed his thoughts on the subject, along with why he is so concerned with what he is seeing.
If there are so many good cops, why can't y'all regulate. Is the ratio of corrupt cops to good cops that unbalanced?— Duke (@NachoLyfe) July 6, 2016
Protect and serve right? Well who y'all protecting and serving? Cuz it damn sure ain't us.— Duke (@NachoLyfe) July 6, 2016
Like I understand the fear us normal people have. Most of us don't own guns. Most of us aren't "trained" for combat...— Duke (@NachoLyfe) July 6, 2016
Most of us dont have the license to use force and violence...most of us do't have a position of authority...y'all do. Why are you afraid?— Duke (@NachoLyfe) July 6, 2016
Help us man.— Duke (@NachoLyfe) July 6, 2016
If we fight back, we die. If we sit back, we die. We're out of options. They're putting us in coffins for sport. Please help us.— Duke (@NachoLyfe) July 6, 2016
