Unarmed 22-Year-Black Man Killed By Police In His Backyard

On 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, at 9:26 p.m., officers shot 22-year-old Stephon Clark because they feared “for their safety.” Officers claimed Clark “fled” when he was told to show his hands, but Clark was shot in his own backyard.

Officers originally stated he had a weapon in his hand, then they said it was a toolbar. However, The Sacramento Bee reports he was holding his cell phone. Clark’s grandmother Sequita Thompson said she was home when gunshots rang out. “The only thing that I heard was pow, pow, pow, pow, and I got to the ground.” Reportedly, Clark’s body was left in the backyard for “several hours.” The grandmother said after she was interviewed by police for hours, “I opened that curtain and he was dead. I started screaming.”

The grandmother added that neither she nor her husband heard officers make any commands before killing Clark. In addition, The Sacramento Bee reports, “It was normal for Clark and others to enter the home through the backyard because the front doorbell doesn’t work and she and her husband, who is in a wheelchair, have poor mobility. People would knock on the back window and ask her to use an automatic opener to raise the garage door to admit them.”

The two officers who shot and killed Stephon were wearing body cameras and they are currently on paid administrative leave. We will see when the footage will be released and let’s hope it doesn’t mysteriously disappear.

Rest in power, Stephon Clark. We hope justice is served.

Black Police Officer Who Fatally Shot Australian Woman Charged With Murder

On July 15, Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor shot and killed an unarmed Australian woman named Justine Damond. Reportedly, the incident began around 11:30 p.m. when Damond, 40, called 911 to report a possible assault behind her house. According to a news release from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, two Minneapolis Police Department officers responded to the call and went to an alley near her home.

According to the Star Tribune, his partner, Matthew Harrity, “heard a voice, a thump somewhere behind him on the squad car, ‘and caught a glimpse of a person’s head and shoulders outside his window.’ Charges said he was not able to articulate what the noise was, how loud it was, what the person’s voice sounded like, or what the person said. He characterized it as “a muffled voice or a whisper.’ He estimated the person was 2 feet away and he couldn’t see their hands, or weapons.” Officer Harrity “perceived that his life was in danger, reached for his gun, unholstered it, and held it to his rib cage while pointing it downward. He said from the driver’s seat he had a better vantage point to determine a threat than Officer Noor would have had from the passenger seat.” Damond was shot and killed shortly thereafter.

Now, according to The New York Times, Noor has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. The officer’s body cameras weren’t on and there isn’t a video of the shooting. In a statement released by the lawyer for the family of Ms. Damond, they said, “We remain hopeful that a strong case will be presented by the prosecutor, backed by verified and detailed forensic evidence, and that this will lead to a conviction. No charges can bring our Justine back. However, justice demands accountability for those responsible for recklessly killing the fellow citizens they are sworn to protect, and today’s actions reflect that.”

Austin Bombing Suspect Dead Here’s Everything We Know

A suspect in the string of bombings that terrorized Austin, Texas died early Wednesday morning.

The suspect, identified only as a 24-year-old White man, killed himself with an explosive device when authorities attempted to arrest him, the American-Statesmen reported.

He detonated the device in his vehicle when police officers approached him, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a brief news conference on Wednesday morning. One police officer was injured in the explosion, but he’s expected to recover. A second officer fired his weapon during the attempted arrest.

Investigators are unclear if the suspect acted alone. They urged the public to “remain vigilant” because it’s unknown if the suspect planted other bombs that have not yet been found.

A breakthrough in the case came after the suspect shipped a package with explosives from an Austin FedEx store a few days ago. Investigators obtained security video evidence from the store, as well as receipts of the transaction. The suspect’s Google search history also revealed suspicious activity. Authorities used cell phone technology to trace the man to a hotel in Williams County, Texas.

Five bombs have exploded in Austin since March 2, killing two people and injuring four others. Both victims who died were African Americans–one of them a 39-year-old man and the other a 17-year-old boy. It was believed early in the investigation that the terrorist was targeting Black people, which may still hold true as they try to figure out a motive for the attacks. Authorities emphasized that this is an ongoing investigation.

This is a developing story. More details to come.
