Sacramento PD arrest 84 people after Stephon Clark Protest in affluent East Sacramento neighborhood

Our District Attorney announced on Saturday (??), a year after Clark was killed, that she would not press charges against the cops. CA attorney general just came to the same conclusion.

They've marched on freeways, shut down basketball games, taken over downtown intersections and no one paid attention. They take the protest to the nice big pretty houses? It felt like war. There were more cops than protesters at every stage of the evening. They reacted with more hostility and brute force than I've seen in over a year of reg

You can indict a ham sandwich, but you can't indict a pig, apparently.

I hope they march right on back through.

Sometimes I feel like "we can't indict him" really just means "we could indict him, but we won't, because we're pretty sure a jury would convict, and we can't have that."

Actually, more than just sometimes.

It's smart though, taking the protest to the rich folks so they can't hole up and ignore it. Shut down a goddamn Whole Foods for a week and see how they like it.

Wasn't this the guy who was shot about 20 times in his own grandmother's backyard because the cops decided his cell phone was a weapon?

Whoa, let's not get carried away here.

You have too much faith in a jury / defense's ability to pick a jury. The vast majority of our (big D) Democrat city voted to reelect our big RRRepublican DA.

The police were responding to someone breaking car windows. Police helicopter spotted Clark running away. Clark refused to stop and the officers believed he had a gun. If the police did not shoot and just continued chasing him and Clark did have a gun and fired at the police and inadvertently killed innocent bystanders, would the police be blamed for not stopping him when they had the chance?

Nope.

That's not a response, btw. That's just a nope.

District Attorney Schubert: "We know he fled from the officers after being told to stop. We know that he continued into the backyard. And we know that when he continued into the backyard, he rounded that corner. And he went to the end of that yard, and he turned around. He turned around, and he was in a shooting stance with his arms extended."

The police believed they were about to be fired upon and feared for their life and the safety of the public. I don't know if it would be reasonable for the police to wait until Clark started shooting.

I am just trying to understand the view of the police and this assumes that the police were truthful.

Assuming police are truthful is the first error.
