Everything You Need To Know About Stephon Clark

On Sunday, March 18, around  9:18 p.m., Sacramento police responded to a call “that a thin, 6-foot-1 black man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants was hiding in a residential backyard after breaking car windows,” according to The Sacramento Bee. Just eight minutes later, officers fired over 20 times at 22-year-old Stephon Clark — in his own backyard. Reportedly, they “feared” for their lives because they saw a gun in his hand. In reality, it was a cell phone. Now, video and audio has been released of the shooting — and it appears the two officers shot Clark within three seconds of encountering him.


Stephon Clark was a father of two. See the photo of Clark with his family.

As a Black man,
A Dad,
A Husband,
A Son,
A brother,
A Human Being…

I am saddened and sickened by what happened to Stephon Clark.
It could happen to me. Or my sons.
THAT is why we kneel.
THAT is why we insist #BlackLivesMatter

Stephon’s name on his birth certificate is “Stephen.” The Sacramento Bee reported, “Clark altered the spelling of his name to differentiate it from that of his father.” In addition, he also went by the nickname Zoe.

Body Left In The Backyard For Hours

Stephon Clark’s body was reportedly left in the backyard for several hours. According Sacramento Bee, his grandmother was interviewed by police for hours. After the interview, she said, “I opened that curtain and he was dead. I started screaming.”

Shot With Seconds Of Encountering The Police

According to, “Three seconds pass before one of the officers yells “Gun! Gun! Gun!” and both officers open fire. The 20 gunshots are all fired within about two seconds, according to the videos.” Watch the videos below:

No First Aid

Initially, cops claimed, after shooting the 22-year-old several times, that they didn’t give him first aid because he had a gun. However, he didn’t have a gun, he had a cell phone so they let a young man die.

First the @SacPolice said they shot and killed 22 year old #StephonClark and denied him any first aid because he had a gun.

Woman Gets No Jail Time After She Recklessly Lied About Three Black Men Raping Her

A North Texas woman who lied that she was kidnapped and raped by three Black men in ski masks last year got only a slap on the wrist on Tuesday.

Breana Rachelle Harmon, a 19-year-old charged with a felony, walked away with only probation, the Dallas Morning News reported. A Grayson County judge sentenced Harmon to a deferred-adjudication probation, a “special” type of plea deal that will get her case dismissed after she complies with court requirements.

Harmon pleaded guilty last month to two counts of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and two counts of tampering with government records. And now she has a chance at having no formal conviction on her record, a plea deal similar to the one that former University of Hartford student Brianna Brochu received earlier this month after harassing and smearing disgusting used tampons on her Black ex-roommate belongings in a racially motivated attack.

The same “special type of probation” that was given to Breana Harmon Talbott who concocted a story about being raped by three black men.

White girls are doing wild things and the law continues to coddle them.

Harmon has to repay more than $8,000 to cover expenses incurred by the Denison Police Department in investigating her case in Texas. She also has to pay a $2,000 fine and perform 160 hours of community service, the Sherman Herald Democrat reported.

If she abides by those conditions of her probation for eight years, her record will be cleared. In convincing the judge to go for probation, Harmon used the defense that a conviction would keep her from becoming a nurse. She also said she was suffering from depression when she made the racially charged lies, which quickly inspired doubt from police.

Harmon, who appeared bloody and wore just a shirt and undergarments, actually ran into a church and said three Black men in ski masks had abducted her last March. She then told police that one of the men had pinned her down while the other two raped her. She f

Racist Seattle Lyft Driver Says ‘Fing N-Word ’ Throws Interracial Couple Out Of Car

Some more horrible racist hate just got aired on Twitter and Facebook. A woman, who is White, posted a message to Lyft after one of its drivers referred to her Black boyfriend as a “f**king a**hole” and the N-word in Seattle over the weekend.

The driver also proceeded to throw the interracial couple out of the car because he didn’t like that they were together.

“He drove less than [half] a block before he asked us to get out of the car,” Alex Dugdale, the boyfriend of the woman Kylie Rae Steinbach, wrote on Facebook about the St. Patrick’s Day incident. “Kylie asked him why and I said “he didn’t like that we are a couple. After I exited the car he rolled down the window and yelled “you A**hole, fucking n****r ” at me and drove off.”

Dugdale had asked the driver to stop at 7-Eleven when they were allegedly hatefully commanded to get out of the vehicle. The racist driver also reportedly turned a dashboard camera around to record them.

“I couldn’t imagine what we possibly had done in that time,” Steinbach said to Seattle’s King 5 News. “Why on earth are we being told to get out of the car?”

Dugdale and Steinbach wanted to report the incident and asked Lyft to address the racism, they both wrote on social media.

Hey, @lyft one of your drivers just called my boyfriend a “fucking asshole” and a “nigger”. How can we report this? He has a dash cam so it’s all on camera!

— Kylie Rae (@kyliecliche) March 18, 2018

But they initially got a tone-deaf response from Lyft, they said. Steinbach said the man who they spoke to “didn’t bother asking what the altercation was” and only said the company wouldn’t “pair you with [the] driver again.”

Lyft later told the pair that an investigation would be opened into the incident, the couple, who also filed a police complaint, said.

Dugdale and Steinbech want Lyft to review the dashcam video, fire the driver and apologize. The couple also wants to send the message that hate is never okay, and they will not tolerate intolerance.

“He said that word. He said the n-word, and because of that it took it to a whole other level of harassment,” Dugdale said.

Austin Bomber’s Death Didn’t Stop Black Victim’s Family’s Fear Grief And Police Mistrust

The suspected Austin bombings domestic terrorist’s death has spurred the first victim’s family to speak out after the city was plunged into terror.

For the grief-stricken family of Anthony Stephan House, their fear has not stopped. Reports of Mark Anthony Conditt‘s possible additional heinous plans to hurt residents, mainly targeting Black people, have only prompted more concern from House’s relatives.

“Supposedly the Austin bomber blew himself up when officers were attempting to arrest him,” Norrell Waynewood, House’s brother, wrote on Facebook Wednesday, referring to the reported suicide of Conditt in Round Rock, Texas. “Let’s hope this is the guy and that people are once again safe.”

House, a 39-year-old African-American project manager, husband and a father of an 8-year-old daughter, was tragically killed when a packaged bomb arrived at his doorstep on March 2. He, without perhaps consciously knowing it, had likely saved his daughter’s life when he sent her back inside the home to brush her teeth that early morning. But her morning routine was cut horribly short when she discovered House’s body on the lawn in what was described as a gruesome and horrifying scene.

This was the first bombing in the Austin attacks before police knew that multiple other explosions would rock the city, killing two people and injuring several residents in the span of 19 days. However, police mischaracterized House’s death, blaming the incident on him when it first happened, Waynewood told the Daily Beast.

“When it first happened, we didn’t feel like police were taking our family seriously,” he said after Austin Police Department Assistant Chief Joseph Chacon told reporters that House could have constructed and detonated the bomb. “…Once he [House] was painted as doing it to himself, people lost respect for him. People stopped offering to help out at the funeral, stopped giving money, stopped helping.”

After the Austin bomber murdered Anthony Stephan House 20 days ago, his family said police tried to frame Stephan for blowing himself up.

The police then announced the community had nothing to worry about.

It caused Stephan&

On WorldWaterDay We Remember Flint Still Doesn’t Have Clean Water

The United Nations recognizes March 22 as World Water Day to focus attention on the importance of water. The theme for World Water Day 2018 is “Nature for Water,” and it explores nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.

It’s amazing to shed light on how water is so essential to our overall sustenance. However we have just one question: How are we bringing the people of Flint, Mich. into this conversation—particularly when they have not had clean water in almost four years?

Today is World Water Day🌊. Water is by far our greatest natural resource. Water is life & without a clean water supply the quantity & quality of life exponentially decreases. Please keep places like Flint & others worldwide in ur thoughts & prayers. #worldwaterday shoutn2thevoid

Nearly 100,000 residents of Flint have been affected by hazardous contamination that began in April 2014, when the city switched its water supply to the Flint River. The switch lead to the leaching of dangerous levels of lead (plus E.coli, Legionnaires’ disease, and byproducts of disinfectants that cause health issues including an increased risk for cancer over time) into the water supply. After lawsuits and countless “efforts” to fix the water system, the water lines have not been fully replaced and the process could take up to two more years.

When days like this come around on our calendar, our minds typically float toward places that would be classified as third world countries. It’s rare when the places that struggle with these issues in our own nation get the mic or the spotlight because they’re so often pushed to the corners of our media coverage. We haven’t seen Flint make national headlines since Michigan state officials were charged with involuntary manslaughter in 2017. There are local news sites still reporting on how this tragedy impacts the city’s people today, and there is a new Netflix documentary about the other issues that exist there, but they are typically not talked about in the mainstream.

So on World Water Day, we lift up the people of Flint and everyone else across the nation who is struggling with access t
