SACRAMENTO -- Four days after 22-year-old Stephon Clark was shot and killed by police officers in his grandparents' backyard, protesters gathered inside and outside Sacramento City Hall.
Officers believed Clark had been breaking into cars in the neighborhood and shot him because they say they thought he had a gun. He was only holding a cellphone.
"The death of one more man of color is one too many," Mayor Darrell Steinberg said earlier Thursday before the protest began.
Protesters clogged major downtown Sacramento streets near City Hall as the Thursday commute was about to begin. Earlier in the day, the city urged drivers to find alternate routes.
A large crowd of demonstrators walked onto Interstate 5 at J Street and blocked both sides of the roadway, forcing traffic to stop. Drivers were seen getting out of their stopped cars along the interstate.
In one instance a CHP officer grabbed a lone man and dragged him from the southbound I-5 onto the shoulder of the roadway. Demonstrators told FOX40 the man was not associated with their protest and was later arrested.

Will they burn anything down? What are the odds.
"...shot and killed by police officers..."
We can just add all these cop shootings over the past several years to the list of known false flag events perpetrated by the deep state.
BLM terrorists protesting another police shooting of a “gentle giant.”
Well, was he...Did he?
When, oh when are we going to weed out cops who have size 44 uniforms and size 4 hats. This is soooo unnecessary. Note to self, never “brandish” your cell phone when you are anywhere near a cop. Seemingly, they use any excuse to execute a citizen, and then say “oops, sorry missed that phone, thought it was a gun, my bad that I killed him!”
“The death of one more man of color is one too many,” Mayor Darrell Steinberg
How about just, “the death of one man” is too many?
“Well, was he...Did he? “
Read the lead, it was a phone in his hand!
They shot him because he was a black man.
Waiting for the wealth redistribution uprising in 3,2,1...
I know that.
Nah, let's see FReepers break into BLM mode. Pathetic.
Hence, either the story is wrong or the shooting was wrong.
What was a 22 year old man doing running through people’s yards? A 10 year old should know better than that.
And you can tell that in the dark just how? Cops saw a man advancing on them with a hand extended. If they wait to make sure it is actually a gun, well, guess what? They are shot if they are wrong. And they had been chasing that guy for some time.
“Nah, let’s see FReepers break into BLM mode. Pathetic. “
“The death of one more black thug is one too many.”
There, I fixed it.
Eh, didn’t the mayor initially come out backing the cops?
