Stephon Clark 'Shot in Back Seven Times': Private Autopsy

Stevante Clark brother of Stephon Clark addresses fellow protesters in response to the police shooting of Stephon Clark in Sacramento California

Stephon Clark, the unarmed black man who was killed by police in Sacramento this month, was shot a total of eight times, according to an independent autopsy released Friday.

Ray Morsheth of Sacramento Revival Center said he plans to stay away from the funeral for fear things could turn ugly, while the Rev. Phillip Goudeaux of Calvary Christian Center said it should be a time for peace and forgiveness. Clark's family has accused the police department of trying to cover up misconduct by its officers and decided to conduct its own autopsy.

Calls for justice and charges against two police officers who fatally shot an unarmed black man aren't abating in California's capital city after an autopsy showed Stephon Clark was shot in the back.

The team typically averages crowds of 17,500 this season, which means a loss of more than $1 million in ticket refunds by some estimates. What drew more outrage was the reaction of the White House. "It was a cell phone".

Bennet Omalu, who was hired by the Clark family, says the forensic evidence entrance and exit wounds show Clark could not have been advancing toward officers when they opened fire. He said he supports the state attorney general's independent oversight of the investigation.

The newspaper said the protester was taken to a hospital by the fire department and later released with bruises.

Dr. Omalu determined that none of the eight bullets that pierced Clark's body entered from the front.

"The children lost their father and deserve justice", Panish said.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has said state investigators will oversee the investigation and review the police department's procedures and practices.

"There is deep pain and anguish" in Sacramento, he said. His death has triggered protests in the city.

Delivering Stephon Clark's eulogy on Thursday, Reverend Al Sharpton praised demonstrators for their restraint and urged them to follow the lead of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr and his advocacy of nonviolent protest.

"Does this look like a gun?" he asked. His partner then joined in the shooting. The officers had said they believed Clark had a gun. It also would expand background checks for private gun sales.

No gun was found at the scene. Including Clark, five of the six have been black men. They then handcuffed him before appearing to attempt resuscitation.

Throughout the demonstrations, BLM and other activist groups aligned with the Democratic Party have sought to contain the protests while redirecting anger into the dead end of identity politics and sowing illusions the city's African-American police chief, Daniel Hahn.

"He just broke the window, running south, running to the south", says a deputy in the helicopter.

"These findings from the independent autopsy contradict the police narrative that we've been told", the Clark's family lawyer Benjamin Crump told the New York Times.

Protestors block an intersection in downtown Sacramento after Clark's funeral.

"It was not an instantaneous death", Omalu said.

After the incident, about 150 protesters stayed in the intersection, shutting down traffic in all directions, video footage shows. Shoot him in the legs?
