AG Becerra Announces No Charges For Officers/Outrage Disrupts Sacramento City Council Meeting

March 7, 2019


On March 5, 2019, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that he will not file criminal charges against the officers who shot Stephon Clark a year ago, setting the stage for even more unrest and protests in Sacramento.

At the Sacramento City Council on the night of March 5, Alexander Clark — who is not related to Stephon Clark — told Mayor Darrell Steinberg to “shut the f— up.” Clark told Steinberg that Steinberg didn’t care about Stephon Clark. Clark refused to return to the audience after going over his allotted time. He then jumped up on the lectern, screaming as council members attempted to call forward the next speaker. Police swarmed Clark as Steinberg called out “leave him alone” while audience members began chants repeating Stephon Clark’s name.

Still pending is a $20 million federal lawsuit the Clark family has filed against the city of Sacramento and the officers, as well as a review of both DA Schubert’s and Becerra’s investigations by the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento.
