Man Who Uploaded #AltonSterling Video Still Paying a Price, Has Not Been Allowed Back to Work

After uploading the video of Baton Rouge, Louisiana police killing Alton Sterling on July 5, Christoper LeDay has been arrested and not allowed back to work.

According to Fox 5 Atlanta, LeDay revealed in a Thursday news conference that he has not been allowed back to work at Dobbins Air Reserve Base due to security-clearance issues. He was working security for only a month when the chaos surrounding the video occurred.

Atlanta Black Star reported that LeDay was arrested by 10 officers at the Marietta, Georgia base within 24 hours of posting the video.

Now, the 34-year-old has recruited attorney Tiffany Simmons to represent him as he tries to get his job back.
