Peter Rosenberg has no patience for cops who don't admit wrongdoing. The New York radio host went off on an officer who called in to his show Ebro In The Morning on Hot 97 to discuss the police killing of Alton Sterling that was captured on video. Sterling was a 37-year-old man who was selling CDs outside a convenience store when officers tackled him to the ground and shot him even though witnesses say he was no immediate threat to them.

In the clip posted to Twitter by the radio station, we see Rosenberg ask the officer if he can admit that the situation looks bad for the cops on the video tape. The officer struggles to answer, which is when Rosenberg fires off and gets visibly upset:
Police officers never want to say when ya'll do a bad job. So and that's the reason the public thinks all of you are bad — because you won't ever call someone out and say, "They murdered someone in cold blood. It happened again." And until you guys start taking responsibility for your own, people in the street are going to be upset instead.
You can watch the full interaction in this video posted to YouTube. Minute 6:28 is when the officer calls in.
