LAX Shooting
This is what Trumpanzees wanted. And any stupid minorities who voted for Trump are getting what they deserve.  The rest of the nation is on for the ride of white supremacy and more Sacramentos and more Charlottesvilles.  Stephon Clark,  the 22-year-old California father of two who was unarmed when police shot at him 20 times on March 18, was hit eight times, an independent autopsy shows.Results Announced Of Independent Autopsy On Stephon Clark, Shot By Sacramento Police OfficersLawyers for the family of Stephon Clark held a press conference Friday to announce the findings of a private autopsy. 

Dr. Bennet Omalu, who conducted the three-hour autopsy, told reporters that Clark was struck eight times. Six of the bullets hit Clark directly in the back, with a seventh hitting him in the side of his back, Omalu said.

“You could reasonably conclude that he received 7 gunshot wounds from his back,” Omalu said. An eighth bullet hit Clark in the arm.

 

On March 18, the Sacramento Police Department responded to reports of someone smashing car windows in Clark’s neighborhood. At approximately 9:30 p.m., two officers opened fire on Clark outside the home he shared with his grandparents and his two young sons, ages 1 and 3.

Police said they fired 20 rounds as Clark advanced on them with an object in his hand.

 

“Gun! Gun, gun, gun!” one officer shouted in police bodycam footage that the department released last week. Both officers can be seen unleashing a hail of gunfire on the unarmed man. Clark had no gun, only a cell phone.

 

Another video from the police helicopter that was following Clark the night of his killing shows thermal images of Clark hopping over fences and running from police as they pursue him. Moments later, his body crumples to the ground.
