Officers say they mistook Stephon Clark’s cellphone for a gun. Activists want more answers.

Police killings of unarmed black men helped fuel the rise of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Now a new tragedy — the shooting death of an unarmed black man in his own backyard — is raising new questions about how much things have changed, if at all.

On Sunday, 22-year-old Stephon Clark was shot in the backyard of the home he was staying in with his grandparents. Police officers were purportedly responding to reports of a man breaking car windows.

According to a press release issued by the Sacramento Police Department, a helicopter tracking a suspect directed the officers to Clark, who ran towards the house after being confronted by officers. The police department said Clark turned and began to “advance forward with his arms extended, and holding an object in his hands.”

The officers, who are said to have thought the object was a gun, then fired 20 rounds at Clark. It’s unclear how many of the shots hit Clark, but other facts aren’t in dispute, and they’re disturbing: After the shooting, officers waited several minutes for backup before moving to handcuff Clark and beginning medical treatment. And the only item he turned out to have been carrying was a cellphone...

Police kill far more white people than black ones but apparently only black lives matter.

Watch the police video that has been released and you'll see the suspect climbing over fences and walls to avoid the police. He also did NOT have his arms extended but reached in his pocket and pulled out the phone. That's when police acted. We just buried a policeman who tried to arrest an armed fugitive who turned and pulled a gun out of his pocket and shot and killed the officer. For once put your biased opinions in the officers shoes. It's dark you've been chasing a suspect who has bee trying to avoid you. You stop in a backyard of a home and he refuses to follow your commands. Suddenly he reaches in his pocket and pulls out an object. One of the officers yells GUN! You make a splint second decision - his life or yours. You fire and he's hit and dies. You then find out it was a cellphone. Sad story but once again the dead man fails to follow police orders and instructions.

Every time I read this, I suppose
they killed the man using a cellphone
rather than guns or fists.

It's terrible to think how many of our lives are daily at risk with
all these strangers wandering round using cell phones. Realistically
if the police are going to shoot them all, they will probably run out
of bullets.

Was he in fact breaking car windows? Why was he climbing fences and trying to evade the policemen? Not that running from the police is necessarily a capital offense but it is certainly a very stupid thing to do when armed men are pursuing you.
