The son of the man killed in a fatal police shooting in Baton Rouge says he has a message for protesters.
Cameron sterling spoke today a week after his father was killed.
"My Father was a good man. That was a sacrifice to show everyone what was going on in life," he said.
The 15 year old was poised and direct as he talked about his dad. He appealed to thousands of people nationwide protesting his father's death at the hands of police.
"Yes, you can protest," he said. "But, I want everyone to protest the right way. Protest in peace, not guns, not drugs, not alcohol, not violence. Protest the right way with peace," he said.
Protests from Baton Rouge and all over the nation for Alton sterling have at times reached a boiling point.
"I think the police I've seen so far have had used tremendous restraint based on some of the things that have happened with them," said State Police Colonel Mike Edmonson.
One day after his father died, Cameron cried.
A week and a day later he was composed, standing feet away from where his father was killed outside a food mart.
"I want to thank everyone for their support," he said.
"To hear the son of a man that was murdered and hear his thoughts on what's going on across the country, maybe that can calm some of the flames," said attorney L. Chris Stewart.
