The battle cry in Sacramento is "Stephon Clark! Stephon Clark!"

His name was said over and over outside a Sacramento City Council meeting where people lined up for a seat and a chance to speak out. There was tight security and metal detectors as City Hall was overwhelmed by the crowd. Many could not get inside.

Earlier in the day, an emotional group of protestors gathered outside the District Attorney's office demanding answers.

Tuesday, the California Department of Justice announced they are stepping in to oversee the investigation into the shooting death of Stephon Clark on March 18. It's a case that's quickly becoming a national crusade about illegal use of force.

Clark led police on a pursuit that ended in his grandmother's backyard in south Sacramento.  [note: Or police chased somebody else into the back yard and found Clark, who was there attending a family barbeque; this is in dispute.] Body cam video included an officer yelling "gun" then 20 rounds were fired at the 22-year-old. As other officers arrived, one said "mute" and audio on both body cams went silent. Clark was not armed. He was holding a cell phone.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the state would supervise the investigation into the shooting. He admitted there is a lot of mistrust but said if the investigation is transparent and fair it could bring people together.

Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn said, "I also promise regardless of the final outcome of this investigation, we will explore and implement ways to better serve our community."

Activist Berry Accius said protestors are angry but that doesn't mean they are violent. "We are here because excessive force was used. We are here because of police officers- not protesters "

community groups say the state taking over the investigation isn't enough. They are demanding "justice now. " They want the two police officers to be charged with murder and they want police to change their protocol going forward.

A phone that looks like a gun?  Who many white people are shot for that crime?  And why would you kill someone for a petty crime, anyway?

It's open season on black people again.

Bloody gun happy cops. Why do they always shoot to kill as well, why not just shoot in the arm.

This man was holding his phone, got 20 rounds punched into him, 20 bloody rounds ffs.

Yes they always tend to shoot blacks first before asking any questions, its an appalling way to die and in front of his family too.

A Glock handgun holds 15 rounds...

To fire 20 rounds, both cops were firing repeatedly, and often..

That shooting seems to be a deliberate vendetta against their target, and not a simple straightforward shooting by a jumpy cop in self-defence.

And as for deliberately shooting unarmed civilians, those Sacramento cops are simply joining their fellow incompetent headcases in blue in Minneapolis, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Colorado, etc. etc. etc..

No doubt next up we will the see the police union/association,
along with like-minded redneck politicians and r/w editors, defending any and all bad cops out there; as usual...

The White House ducks any comment, saying it's a local matter. As you point out, wolf, black deaths at the hands of cops seems to dot the map and belies the local tag.

The facts suggest that this was a pure murder, and not due to mistake or poor training. The cops (one of them) shot Clark and brought him down. After a pause in which they appear to have nodded to one another, they commenced a barrage of shots to kill the young man.

Let's put this into perspective. The alleged crime here--even if you buy that they had the right guy, which I question--is breaking automobile windows. Does this meet the standard of reasonable fear of your life or the life of another?? There was no gun, and the autopsy report clearly shows all of the subsequent police bullets were fired after Clark was down. There was no reasonable apprehensions, just plain old murder. This was a Nazi-like execution.

With no recriminations to the gun happy cops either. It's murder by cops in reality, bloody disgusting.
