Alton Sterling’s son pleads for unity in America: ‘Come together as one united family’

ABC

Kyle Bridges // EEW Magazine News

Cameron Sterling, the 15-year-old son of Alton Sterling, a black man who was gunned down by white police officers outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, wants America to “protest the right way.”

"Protest in peace, not guns," said Cameron today while standing outside the Triple S Food Mart where his father died last week.

Though the videotaped murder sent shockwaves across the nation, even inciting violence, the grieving teen doesn’t want any more bloodshed, hatred and division.

At a press conference, he said he believes everyone “should come together as one united family. There should be no more arguments, disagreements, violence, crimes."

This was Cameron’s first time directly addressing the media. He was last seen sobbing uncontrollably last week while his mom, Quinyetta McMillon, spoke to reporters about fatal incident that occurred on July 5.

"When I put my arm around her, it's like somebody else's hand touched me, like I had another hand laying on top of my hand. And when I looked over, was nobody else touching me. Nobody else was touching me. And it was like at that moment I knew: my daddy here—he right here on the side of her,” he explained.

Cameron continued, "We're standing here as a family together once again. That's when I just started crying... I knew I can't physically have him back, so I knew I had to cry, just to be like, 'I want my daddy back.'"

Cameron will travel to Washington, D.C., Thursday to meet President Obama during a town hall before laying his father to rest Friday.
