A 37 year old man named Alton Sterling, was killed in the early hours of July 5th in Baton Rouge, LA after being shot by police.
Not much is known about the incident but someone did record the end of it.
The video is hard to watch. But we all must figure out what happened:
According to the Advocate, Sterling was selling CD’s in front of a convenience store when he got involved with “some type of altercation” with two police officers.
The situation then escalated to the point that Sterling was thrown to the ground and then shot by one officer “multiple” times.

Read Original Story:
The group that represents sororities at Florida International University has decided to blacklist a fraternity at FIU due to the discovery of an explosive email that allegedly contained a series of inappropriate screenshots from a group chat between members of Tau Kappa Epsilon.
The FIU Panhellenic Council made the claims in a letter released Friday.
The letter, which was first reported by HerCampus claims that a “disgusting and obscene email” containing screenshots of a group chat from members of FIU’s Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity was sent on September 28, to FIU administrators and Greek life leaders.
From Her Campus:
“The email contained over 20 attachments of a Tau Kappa Epsilon group chat in which members shared images of nude women, mocked a deceased member of the Panhellenic community, sent photos of hazing, messages about sexual assault, pedophilia and drug distribution.”
Tau Kappa Epsilon is the second oldest fraternity on the FIU campus and boasts over 90 active members.
In response to the allegations made in the email, five of the seven Panhellenic Council sororities decided to blacklist TKE.
They say that they will not interact with TKE in any way through the end of Fall 2018.
“Although we normally encourage members to become involved in philanthropy, we will not allow for members of TKE to assume roles in our philanthropic programming, to congregate at such events, nor will they be allowed to attend in TKE paraphernalia”, The letter from the Panhellenic Council said. “Our organizations refuse to support any event hosted by the chapter.”
Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon, Phi Mu and Sigma Kappa all signed the letter.
FIU did not respond to RISE NEWS when asked for comment, however the official university Facebook page did comment on the HerCampus story.
“FIU is aware of the images described in the story and has no tolerance for this type of behavior,” the official FIU Facebook page wrote in the comments of the HerCampus article. “We are unable to comment further pending the conclusion of an investigation.”
RISE NEWS also has reached out to the leadership of the Panhellenic Council. We will update this story with additional information.
UPDATE: Tau Kappa Epsilon has responded to our request for comment:
“Tau Kappa Epsilon and our Sigma-Alpha chapter at FIU are fully cooperating with university officials on their investigation.”

Bernie Sanders said in his victory speech in California after winning the Oregon primary that he could still win the Democratic nomination for President.

He’s pedaling a fantasy.
While Sanders could *technically* still beat Hillary Clinton (and I could *technically* still make the NBA), he has close to no room for error. Neither does the country.
While Sanders is waging an ideological fight to further he and his enthusiastic supporters’ agenda, the United States is starting down the horrifying possibility of a Donald Trump presidency.
The time for high school civics games is over with. Bernie Sanders should drop out of the race and immediately endorse Clinton so that she can have more time to unite the Democratic Party and prepare for the long election fight to come.
Sanders has repeatedly said that the number one priority should be to stop Trump from being President. This is the correct priority. After all, Trump is a barbarian who is willing to do just about anything to get elected.
Clinton has been careful in recent weeks (after it became clear that Sanders didn’t really have a winning path) not to anger Sanders supporters by calling for him to drop out. She also stayed in until all the votes were cast in the 2008 primary when she lost to then Sen. Barack Obama.
But that was a very different situation (high levels of excitement in the Democratic primary) and the stakes didn’t feel quite as high as they do now, with the specter of Trump on the horizon.
While Clinton has rightfully not called for Sanders to drop out, he should still do it on his own. I’m sure he won’t and a strong case can be made for his staying in the race until he is mathematically eliminated. But what good would that really do for the party and for the Sanders movement?
Bernie has made his point. And the party will never be the same because of his hugely successful and revolutionary campaign. It would be a real shame if his actions over the course of the next few weeks gave Trump the cover needed to score important victories on Clinton.
And just for the sake of argument, Sanders doesn’t really have one anymore. He is running as a figurehead of a movement and not as a legitimate candidate for the Democratic nomination.
That’s great, but he can do it from another platform and not as a candidate that is causing resources to be devoted from Clinton that should be used on Trump.
Before any Sanders supporters say something nasty in the comments, lets just get all the facts out there.
Sanders is behind Clinton by more than three million raw votes.
Sanders is behind Clinton by nearly 300 pledged delegates.
Sanders is behind Clinton by nearly 500 super delegates.
Before entering Tuesday night (where Sanders narrowly won Oregon and narrowly lost Kentucky), he would have had to win 90% of the remaining delegates to win.
Clinton would basically have to have her name taken off the ballot in the remaining states for Sanders to win, and even then he still might lose it.
Bernie has lost his argument for staying in the race and its time for the real fight to begin.
