15-year-old Cameron Sterling, the son of Alton Sterling, sat down with CBS to discuss how he felt about his father, his perception of police since his father’s death, and also his thoughts on the protests happening across the country.
In regards to who Alton Sterling was as a father, Cameron told David Begnaud of CBS News:
"I really want everyone to know, everyone nationwide, everyone in this world, to know that Alton Sterling was a good man. No matter what anyone else has to say about him, truly in my heart, I know he was a good dad."
Cameron also made it clear that his father’s death hasn’t tainted his feelings about police.


"They all aren't bad. There are some that are bad, but all aren't bad. How I feel? I feel all police shouldn't be punished for other police's crimes," Cameron said. "The police in Dallas, Texas... they didn't deserve that because, nobody knew if they had kids to go home to. Those kids need their parents."

What Sterling is asking is a simple plea, to “protest in peace, not in violence,” also urging everyone to “come together as one united family,” regardless of the color of your skin.

As Cameron prepares to bury his father on Friday, June 15, he will fly to Washington D.C. on Wednesday, for a Town Hall Meeting with President Obama.
