2 men of colour were reportedly shot dead by police in the US this week.

The 2nd shooting came 24 hours after the U.S Justice Department opened an investigation into the fatal shooting of a 37-year-old black man, Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge Louisiana.

Two police officers pinned late Alton Sterling to the ground and shot him six times.

    US that do claim they are the top country respecting human right. Then what is this?does this action from their police shows they respect human right? Because they are the nearest forces to the community,I think the police in general still need to be re-educated on how to relate with the people they are ask to protect.
