Thursday night on KCRA News, the outfit that brought you innocent black child gets “Rodney King’d” by white cops, had this doozy of a report about the deceased Stephon Clark. The City of Sacramento settled with Clark’s parents for the tidy sum of 1.7 million, this is in addition to the 2.4 million paid to his 2 children. Being shot by the police while being under the influence of every drug known to man, plus alcohol, plus domestic violence, threatening texts, and robbery pays well in this area. Trust me that 4.1 million is likely to be more than pretty much any middle-class family’s lifetime earnings.
Here are some highlights from the “report.”
On Friday evening, Clark’s brother — Stevante Clark — held a news conference to respond to the announcement of the settlement. Stevante Clark said that, despite the settlement, he will continue to call for the officers involved to be fired, charged and prosecuted.
Stevante is the piece of trash who during a city council meeting jumped on the dais and told the Mayor to “F*** Off” and other choice vocabulary. He has about as much credibility as Geoffrey the Giraffe of Toys’ R Us fame.
“He was a loving, loving, loving father,” Stevante Clark said of his brother. “He was a proud father. He was love and light.”
Well in that case maybe the settlement was low, seemed like a great dad, coked out of his mind on drugs to the point his grandparents wouldn’t let him in the house. Judging by the texts and his criminal rap sheet, Clark was the opposite.
Clark said he and others planned to protest Saturday afternoon at p.m. at Stockton and Fruitridge Roads to continue to call for the officers’ resignation. Stevante Clark also said, in honor of Stephon Clark’s birthday Wednesday, events would be held throughout the weekend in his memory.
“There’s no reason I should be out here talking about my brother’s legacy, defending my brother’s legacy, when the officers who murdered him should be proving their innocence in court,” Stevante Clark said during the news conference. “We always have to relive the death of Stephon.”
Ah, yes, a protest during these Covid times, monkey pox is prevalent, but its ok. Let us all gather to protest the death of a clown who got what he deserved. Um…, your brother’s “legacy,” what exactly do you mean by that? By the way, you are innocent until proven guilty you dumb hood rat. You would know that if you took any history class or been called to jury duty, but that assumes you receive anything from the government other than a benefit card paid with this blog’s workers taxes! As far as reliving the death of your brother…. take the 4.1 million, buy a place in Granite Bay. You will never have to relive it again, and you can celebrate his legacy as he dun got you out da hood. I mean your friends will call you an “Oreo” or say you’re “not really black” but live it up.
The wrongful death lawsuit filed against the city and the two police officers claims the officers racially profiled Clark and used excessive force when they shot and killed him in March 2018.
The city’s attorney Susana Alcala Wood said in a statement on Friday that the most recent settlement is “the best path forward for all involved parties including our community.”
The Clark family has agreed that the settlement brings an end to the legal action.
“Stephon Clark’s death was a tragedy that brought pain and sorrow to his family and to our entire city,” Mayor Darrell Steinberg said. “Everyone wishes this heartbreaking event had not occurred. A family lost a son, a grandson, a brother, and a father.”
The Sacramento DA was an Independent and the Attorney General was police hating Xavier Becerra. They found no reason to charge the cops. The police profiled Clark? Really? It was several 911 calls, him evading arrest, and running through other folk’s yards, and trying to break into a neighbor’s house. Yes, Sacramento’s mayor is correct the death of Clark brought pain to the families of 2 police officers. They are basically persona non-grata in this area, I hope both were able to transfer and move on. The city is going to feel pain too, this settlement will be paid for by increased tax money… but nothing another ½ cent sales tax can’t fix!
Blame the police, tax the people, remember Stephon Clark.
Saint Stephon Clark the Martyr……Pray for Us!
