Following on from the fatal shooting of Alton Sterling by police earlier this week, a police officer has come forward and broken the so-called 'blue wall of silence'.

Nakia Jones, a Cleveland, Ohio cop, live-streamed on Facebook following the death and she didn't pull any punches when it came to what she thought of her fellow officers. She told them in no uncertain terms that if they're scared to approach African-Americans then they have no right being a cop.

In the emotional upload, Nakia said: "How dare you stand next to me and wear the same uniform and murder somebody. How dare you? You ought to be ashamed of yourself. We took this oath and we meant it. If you are that officer that's prejudiced, take the uniform off and put the KK hoodie on, because I will not stand for that!"

The brave video has since gone viral and has attracted many positive comments and messages of support online.

Nakia also said that if anyone is afraid to talk to an African-American or Mexican because they're not white, then they should 'take that uniform off'.

37-year-old Alton Sterling was shot and killed in Baton Rouge on Tuesday.
