DA gets $13,000 from police unions – and more protests – days after Stephon Clark's death
Can the name of this sub be changed to include the victims name? Its Stephon Clark. Ill flag a mod to ask.
Stephon Clark’s neighbor says he regrets calling 911: ‘He didn’t deserve that’
So now Sac PD officers need to verbalize why they mute their body cam before they do so. Wow that's really helpful!
I don't think they should have the ability to mute them.

*This means it's unlikely any of the first shots were in SC's back. He was facing police.
And then there is this important, FACTUAL information, buried many paragraphs into all of the emerging articles:
SC had been out of jail only 30 days when, as a criminal suspect (not "victim") he was shot and killed by police.
NINE substances in his body. Several of them *not only* illegal, but rare and not common in the U.S.
IMO, it doesn't matter what the blood levels of any of these are-- he was literally "soaked" in drugs. Thirty days after leaving jail. His multiple drug use was not "remote".
I have to wonder how many of those drugs he was using he may have stolen from his grandmother, who may have had them prescribed to her legally-- the grandmother who was housing him, since he had just been released from jail. Combined with illegal purchase on the street of most of the other drugs. Because the likelihood that ANY of the drugs were legally prescribed to him is as close to zero as it's possible to get, IMO.
Here is the DEA info on Etizolam. Now, where do you suppose SC obtained etizolam? It's not legally for sale in the U.S.
The one responsible for setting in motion all of the events that lead SC's death is SC. It's too bad he made *all* of the terrible choices that he did. He is not a victim, IMO. He's a dead criminal suspect. With a long rap sheet, including domestic violence.
I'm glad he didn't hurt the elderly neighbor when he broke into his home during his run and "evasive maneuvers".
SC was on a path to an early, violent death long before the police shot at him on his grandmother's back porch.
Link to full 38 page autopsy report, including toxicology reports (verified by 2 separate labs). Scroll down in the article to the embedded autopsy report, as well as the Sacramento County coroner's review.
Of note, the blood levels of all of the 9 intoxicants present are in quite significant amounts. Meaning, the ingestions were both chronic (indicated by metabolites), as well as contemporary in time to his death (ingested in the hours before he died, which we know because of the half life of each drug, relative to the blood level detected). The tox reports have some good info following the graphs of results.
There is simply no question that he was under the influence of multiple intoxicating drugs (7) at the time he was shot. All of these drugs have synergistic intoxicant effects (they potentiate each other.)
1. Beverage alcohol
I don't care who you are, that's a big list of intoxicants.
IMO, this pattern of drug ingestion (basically he took *any* intoxicant he could obtain-- the "kitchen sink" and then some), strongly suggests he was either looking for money or valuables to sell to buy more drugs, while breaking into cars, or looking for more drugs to steal/ take.
Is that why he was breaking into the home of the elderly neighbor? I think that's a good guess. Many elderly people are on multiple prescribed meds for chronic conditions. The elderly are a target for break ins, because many times drug thieves assume there could be prescription drugs (opioids, pain meds, anxiety drugs, sleeping pills, etc) with street value to steal or ingest.
Astonishing that he was only out of jail 30 days, and had this many substances in his body. So much for the ridiculous "stay at home dad" and "turning his life around" stories that his brother Stevante told reporters to try to rehabilitate SC's reputation.
I wasn't aware that having illicit drugs in your system carried the death penalty.
It can when youre so messed up you run from cops and then charge at them when cornered. It points to state of mind. How thats misunderstood is just beyond comprehension. Moo
Show us a link where he "charged at them" please. Thanks.
