WATCH: NYC radio host shreds cop over Sterling shooting: ‘They murdered that man’
WQHT-FM DJ Peter Rosenberg had no patience for a caller on his radio show on Wednesday who identified himself as a police officer wanting to discuss the fatal shooting of Alton Sterling, Jezebel reported.
“As an officer yourself, it looks bad, no?” Rosenberg asked.
“You know, I will tell you that –” the officer says, before Rosenberg cuts him off.
“Can you say the words, ‘It looks bad’?” he asks, before criticizing officers for refusing to criticize one another even in cases like Sterling’s death, which has renewed the anger surrounding excessive force by police after footage surfaced of officers shooting him as he was being pinned to the ground.
Rosenberg argued that police should be leading the protests against such incidents.
“That’s what should happen instead of you struggling to say, ‘Well I don’t know, it could be,'” he said. “They murdered that man. We just saw it.”
Watch Rosenberg’s remarks, as posted by WQHT, below.
