On March 18, 2018, Stephon Clark, a 22-year-old African American man, was shot and killed by police in the Meadowview area of Sacramento, California. Sacramento Police were pursuing Stephon for allegedly breaking car windows. This lead to police to stop him behind his Grandmother’s house before police mistook his phone as a gun, shooting him seven times.
It has been almost a year since the shooting. On March 2nd, 2019. Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that there will be no criminal charges against the police officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark. This decision clearly didn’t go well with the people of Sacramento.
