Cameron Sterling, the 15-year-old son of Alton Sterling, who was killed in a police shooting outside a convenience store, broke down crying at his father's open casket funeral on Friday.
The young man, who was wearing a tie with his father's picture and the words "when will it end?" simply broke down in tears during the funeral as the Reverend Jesse Jackson attempted to console him.
Both Jackson and Al Sharpton spoke at the funeral as well, praising Sterling's family for remaining strong as they called for justice but also for peace.
Despite the fact that a grave injustice has happened, you have held your heads high with great dignity and with a example of what this nation should be. But let us not beat around the bush. This is wrong," Sharpton said.
"I don't care how saved you are, how holy you are, wrong is wrong. And some of us are so busy to get past this (but) you can't get past it until you deal with it. Wrong must be corrected and the wrong must be held accountable," he said.
Sharpton then spoke about other recent shootings, saying that the deaths had to stop.
"We have got to stop going from funeral to funeral, and America needs to deal when wrong is wrong, and whoever does the wrong needs to pay the price for doing wrong," he said.
