Baton Rouge, La –

According to RT.com –

A three-year veteran Howie Lake II, has been put on administrative leave for his involvement in a police killing before. In December 2014, he was involved with a firefight with a suspect.

Though the incident is un-related, it does raise eyebrows as to why and how officers are so easily allowed to return back to duty and or patrol the streets, couple that with the scenario that Lake is only a three year veteran and is now involved in 2 killings within a 2 year period.

In the video it appears to show Alton Sterling pinned to the ground, as one of the officer’s had his knee on his arm, before being shot and killed.

Blane Salamoni, a 4-year veteran was also at the scene when Sterling was killed.

Both officers work in the department’s uniform patrol division.

Though reports vary it is still unclear to us as to which officer was the trigger man.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards announced that the investigation into the shooting will be led by the U.S. Department of Justice‘s civil rights division.
