Demonstrators demanding justice for the police shooting of unarmed black man Stephon Clark this month disrupted a Sacramento City Council meeting—and an NBA game, again—on Tuesday night. Residents burst into the meeting chanting Clark’s name and stood on the information desk to lead the calls for justice. Clark’s brother Stevante jumped on the dais in front of the city mayor and demanded to speak, saying he doubted that the council would make any meaningful changes as a result of his brother’s death. “The mayor and the city of Sacramento has failed all of you,” Stevante Clark said. “The chief of police got my brother killed. He doesn’t care. He shows no emotion at all. And y’all get mad at me for not crying on the news. The doors of the Golden 1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings, closed for the second time as protesters arrived there and prevented thousands of fans from getting inside—although the game went ahead as scheduled. Protesters have demanded the local district attorney file charges against the officers involved in the shooting.
