The children of a black man killed by a white police officer a year ago, sued the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Tuesday for being responsible of their father's death.
Family spokesman Ryan Julison said the lawsuit will be filed by attorneys L. Chris Stewart, Dale Glover, Mike Adams, and Brandon DeCuir.
The lawsuit also maintains that the shooting was just one example of the racism present in the Baton Rouge Police Department, citing texts allegedly sent by an officer that used a slur against a protester.
The U.S. Department of Justice decided against filing charges because investigators could not prove that the officers acted unreasonable and willfully. Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry's office has opened it own review to determine if any state criminal charges are warranted. Sterling was Black, all of the officers are White.
On July 5, 2016, officers Lake and Salamoni responded to a call that an unidentified man was waving a gun and threatening the anonymous 911 caller.

After deploying a stun gun and tackling Sterling to the ground, Salamoni, who claims Sterling reached for a gun, shot him a total of six times, according to the court documents. "But we have had officers tell us that there are some problems with policing in this city". A witness caught the shooting on camera.
"The City of Baton Rouge has a long standing pervasive policy of tolerating racist behavior by some of its officers", the lawsuit says, adding there have been multiple reports of officers making racist comments and the tolerance of such comments has led to the mistreatment of the black community.
Sterling's five children are seeking unspecified damages from the city, Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr. and the police department, and the two officers involved in the shooting.
