For Immediate Release: Statement on the Department of Justice refusal federal charges in Alton Sterling’s shooting
In the case of Alton Sterling our hearts go out to the family:
We are now at a time when we can’t depend on the US Government more specifically the Department of Justice-In communities around the country. To an unaware public “Killer Cops” in many of these cases stay on the streets without prosecution. The people are not being served, period. The Jeff Sessions Department of Justice message is as long as you wear a badge “you are above the law”
In Baton Rouge people are shouting “no justice, no peace,” We must continue to ignite and set off, an international dialog-Our goal is to remove any blockage standing in resistance to the prosecution of those who are responsible for Sterling’s death. “The whole thing is not just about Alton … it’s about justice in all of our community nationally and internally.” I call it final justice because we the people are tired now. After Tamir Rice, after John Crawford, after Eric Garner, we are tired now, and the only alternative must be for change.
So we stand with Sandra Sterling and the Sterling Family because final justice means the killings of young black men and women has to end.” No more!
The police officers involved in the shooting were Howie Lake II and Blane Salamoni. Lake had three years of law enforcement experience which included a previous shooting of an African American male. He was subsequently placed on a department-mandated leave; Salamoni had four years of experience. Salamoni and Lake had both been previously investigated and cleared by their department for allegedly having used excessive force. On world human rights day December 10, 2016 (video below)-Freedom First International stood with the family of Alton Sterling and said, we will not stop until justice is met. “Alton We love you and we will stand for Justice.”
So we now ask the Attorney General Of Louisiana Jeff Landry to pursue civil rights violations and appropriate charges on the officers who murdered Alton Sterling. Nothing else will suffice.

As an organization-Freedom First International honors-A Fallen National Hero. We honor and salute all the men and women who have served our country, while at the same time building awareness of the life of Sgt. La David Johnson and his awesome commitment. We hope and pray God’s mercy to the needs of those who have fallen in service to our community. Johnson left for his second deployment to Africa on August 28th, 2017 David’s earthly life was given up. Please review the digital obituary except from http://www.fredhunters.com here:
Ladavid was employed at Wal-Mart in the produce department. He would remove the front wheel of his bike and ride to and from work earning him the title of “Wheelie King”. He remained at Wal-Mart until he made the decision to further his career with the United States Military. He enlisted into the United States Army January 28, 2014 where his leadership abilities continued to shine as he excelled in his career.
Sgt Ladavid Johnson awards include: Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Medal, Non commissioned Officers Professional Development Ribbon, Parachutist Badge, Basic, Air Assault Badge, Combat and Specific Skills Badge Basic Marksmanship Qualification Badge, Driver and Mechanics Badge. Sgt Johnson left for his second deployment to Africa on August 28th, 2017. It would be here that God opened the windows of heaven and sent forth his angels to call his child home. His charismatic personality will always be remembered.
While we won’t give attention to the current US President Donald Trump and his allegations of insensitivity to the commitment of this young man. We will say that our community is well aware of issues the surround those who continually act outside of our interest.
David left to cherish his life and legacy; wife: Myeshia Johnson; children: Ah’leeysa Jones, Ladavid Johnson Jr., and La’Shee Johnson; parents: Samara Johnson (Preceded him in death), Richard and Cowanda Johnson, Terrence (Teoka) McGriff; grandparents and a host of other family and friends
If you like to sign his obituary reference here:

So we stand with Johnson Family because final justice means the killings of young black men and women and those oppressed worldwide has to end.” No more lives! We must change or die!

Bishop Gregg L.Greer-President of Freedom First International
Today, we have entered into a new stage of our Advocacy with the fight “Justice for Baby Semaj Crosby.” The Semaj Crosby Coalition for Justice (on facebook) has now been formed-soon, we expect to began having actions and public education events on the ground.
The message from the concerned Family of baby Semaj:
For the Crosby’s- It is physically and emotionally draining to be called upon to prove that systems exist-that are working against us. For many, family, advocacy, and community- just struggling to keep this child’s name clear as we fight for “justice” is a task within it’s self. So we now say enough is enough. Now we must ask everyone to break clear of innuendo as we want Justice and to move forward as much as any “grieving” family can who losses a loved one.
Freedom First International has laid out the following bullet points:
- The Father of Semaj Crosby is fighting for Justice for his daughter! James Crosby now has support of family, and community who also want to see justice to move on with their lives.
- No one should be speaking officially for the family except those authorized by the family-in an effort to stay clear of confusion with a very complex and very difficult situation.
- Many People in the community who want to help can do so by simply supporting by joining groups who are progressive.
- God Mother (Parents) is not an authorized representative of the Crosby Family or Estate of Semaj Crosby. We would ask out of respect for Baby Semaj Crosby-that no Media, Social Justice Organizations, and Community members give a forum to God Mother or any unauthorized representative of the Estate of Semaj Crosby. (This request is also being made for obvious legal reasons)
Can anyone fully explain why they would think that they are at an unfair disadvantage when in reality it’s not about them-the public must know the truth. Imagine watching a countess flurry of homemade “You Tude” video’s where a young seemingly “misguided” woman with an “alleged” but rather dubious and checkered history-claims to be representing the family, and also the Estate of Semaj Crosby. Many in the community believe-This verbal contest has constructed for “personal gain.” Unfortunately, We are forced day by day to engage with the idea that there are none (but you) actually advocating for Semaj-when the truth is the family loved this baby in “life” that love continues in the “afterlife.” The community has been truly mislead and some are now smearing the family. If that were not enough- it is also widely believed that this person has compromised much of the investigation of the death of Baby Semaj-a fact which local authorities fully agree.
It is incredibly painful to have to advocate for this child and address those who wish to continue on a downward path of confusion. None of the Confusion is needed or warranted.
Going forward our Prayer is that in the short turn Semaj Crosby will have her “Justice.” We hope that the light and love that she gave will help brighten dark paths for other children and those who are in need. This must and will be legacy of Semaj Crosby!
Best, Regards-Caring Community, Family and Advocacy for Semaj Crosby!
