Stephon Clark: State Senators on Both Sides Condemn Shooting

032818Protesters Take To Streets

The shooting death of unarmed Black California man Stephon Clark at the hands of Sacramento police has sparked a flurry of renewed debate over the use of force by authorities.

"It's more than color", Barnes told the crowd at the second of two rallies Saturday. Barnes made the announcement at a rally he organized in the aftermath of the shooting Saturday.

Clark was killed March 18 by two police officers responding to a call of someone breaking into vehicle windows.

When asked if he had evidence of such protesters having attended the demonstration for Clark, Jones said that they do have evidence, and have "seen it previously". Authorities said that Clark was holding a tool bar, but later admitted it was just a cellphone, which can be seen in the video of the shooting. You never know, as you said, whether it's PR or not for sure. "You don't know what it is like to go to the home that you grew up in and hear. that your brother was murdered in his grandmother's backyard".

Jones also said the two deputies who drove their vehicles through the crowd were not part of the protest detail that night.

Clark marched to a bench where homeless people sat and shouted "these are the people you need to be talking to, these are the people you need to be helping, they smell like piss". "Louder! Louder! Louder!" he yelled.

More events are planned in the coming days as outrage continues.

The deputy leading the two-car convoy ordered protesers through a loudspeaker to back off.

But if Cooks wasn't a great fit, the Patriots certainly wouldn't have tried to discuss an extension, either. They got a solid year out of the player and then sold high, getting that first-round pick back in return.

"We're getting multiple calls of a female hit by a police vehicle in the middle of the street who needs medical attention", the dispatcher says.

"We heard it and I instantly knew what it was, " Doulgas, 27, told a reporter. "We don't know these cops, so we fear them. His body was in such bad shape that we couldn't do the ritual washing (ghusl)", Suleiman said.

The Clark family's lawyer, Benjamin Crump, said that the results contradict the police narrative of what happened the night he was killed.

Sacramento musicians are paying tribute to Stephon Clark with new singles calling for change and social justice. The comment comes about seven minutes after Clark was shot.

Protests have rocked Sacramento since Clark's shooting, including delaying National Basketball Association games. Demonstrations have been particularly tense since Thursday, when an independent autopsy report concluded Clark was struck eight times, mostly in the back.

Clark also received a gunshot wound to his side and another to his left thigh, Omalu said.

The autopsy - commissioned by the family of Mr. Clark, 22, and conducted by Dr. Bennet Omalu, a private medical examiner - showed that he was shot three times in his lower back, twice near his right shoulder, once in his neck and once under an armpit. The California Highway Patrol and the sheriff's office are investigating the incident.
