New Stephon Clark Videos Show Officers Waited 5 Minutes Before Trying To Save Him

Source: HuffPo

A trove of newly released police video shows officers, concerned that Stephon Clark was armed and only pretending to be dead after they shot him, waited about five minutes before attempting lifesaving CPR.

Clark, gunned down by police in his Sacramento, California, backyard on March 18, was unarmed, with only a cellphone on him. But officers who shot Clark as they investigated a report of someone breaking car windows were apprehensive about approaching him, according to the newly released Sacramento Police Department material, which includes 23 in-car camera videos, 28 body camera videos, two 911 audio files and helicopter video. The files were released under a city law that requires video evidence from critical incidents be made public within a month.

“He have a gun?” one officer can be heard saying.

“I don’t see it,” another responded. “He hasn’t moved at all.”

1. Has there been any consequence for these officers?

From the statements in the article, apparently it is "reasonable" to shoot someone multiple times and then just stand around until it is too late to render aid.

And some wonder why others don't trust cops.

3. On a completely unrelated note, remember the folks who open carried in Starbucks?



Remember the Starbucks manager calling the cops? Remember the cops publicly executing these assholes? Me neither.

So glad justice is blind and we're all treated equally by the law.

6. If non-whites open carried assault rifles

we might actually see some Republicans support gun control. It happened with Reagan in the 60s with the black panthers.
