Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “80+ arrested at protest over police shooting of unarmed Stephon Clark in Sacramento (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Clark, an unarmed black man, was holding a cell phone which officers claimed to believe was a gun when they shot him in the backyard of his grandparents’ home on 18 March, 2018.

An estimated 100 people gathered in Sacramento around 7pm local time Monday to protest the DA’s decision and call for the two officers to be fired, marching through the city with placards bearing photos of Clark.
