https://www.dcpofficial.com/stephonclark On March 18th, 2018 Stephon Clark was shot and killed in his grandmothers backyard after officers allege they mistook his cell phone for a gun. Though the story received National media attention, there is a lot more to the case and the Clark family story than most people know. Stephon's grandmother Sequita, mother Sequette “Mama Clark” and brothers Jhai’Len and Stevante share who Stephon was and how the family made a name for themselves throughout the city of Sacramento, CA.

And I said, "Oh my God." I thought it was the neighbors. There's some apartments over here that's behind, they're called Coral Gables, and they always like shooting over there, these young people. So I jumped out on the floor and because the sound was getting closer, got out of that chair over there and came over here and pulled my granddaughter by her legs and said, "Cailyn, wake up. They're shooting outside. They're shooting." And she said, "What, Grandma?" I said, "Yeah, they're shooting. Lay down. We went all the way around to the bedroom on the floor, me and her. And I said, "Papa, they're shooting." He said, "Yeah." Then he said that he thought he heard somebody at the window, but I said, "Well, call the police. See what's going on.  Credits Special thanks to  Host: Adell Coleman & Chris Colbert Executive Producers: Adell Coleman & Chris Colbert Edited & Sound Design: Byron Hunt Producers: Heather Johnson, Ryan Woodhall and Mike DuBose Associate Producers: Quinton Hill Content Distribution: DCP Entertainment Learn more about your ad choices.

William Green - Part 2

2022-05-0259:33

https://www.dcpofficial.com/williamgreen On January 27th, 2020 William “Boo Boo” Green, was handcuffed with his hands behind his back in the front seat of a police car when he was shot seven times by Prince George's County police officer Michael Owen Jr. Boo Boo's Cousin Nikki and attorney Malcolm Ruff share updates on the case including how many times officer Owen has tried to make bail as well as the failures of the counties system that ignored internal red flags. CTA for citizens From Nikki Owens If you’re looking for ways to be of service, Nikki Owens would like you to know that Police oversight in America is non-existent. Cities have tried to fight for laws that require police accountability with resistance from legislators, the Fraternal Order Of Police, and local politicians. The current judicial system in America is discriminatory and racist toward people of color. We the people need to recognize how problematic and dangerous it is for police to police themselves. Deadly force has now become normal instead of a last resort. Unarmed citizens, the mentally distressed, and children are dying at the hands of the people sworn to protect and serve them. We are seeing the centuries long abuse of people of color play out on our television screens daily, yet there is no oversight or consequences. Families are hurting and the call to stop murderous police officers is going unheard. We as families need to stand-up together, fight together, and demand that the laws that work for white citizens be enforced equally to people of color. We need the people paid by citizens to enforce and implement laws without bias, discrimination, and racism.   Reach out to your local activist groups, ACLU, and other impacted families to join the fight for justice and equality Also, as always, push to have your state end Qualified Immunity Listen next week for a special part 3 on William Green. We sat down for a roundtable with Nikki Owens and Community Activists turned friends, Tamara McKinney, the cofounder of Concerned Citizens for Bail Reform, Beverly John of the Maryland Coalition for Justice and Police Accountability, and Dawn Dalton, the Cofounder of The JustUs Initiative, to learn more about policing and laws in Prince George’s county, and how we can all better support families who have lost someone due to police violence.  Names of the Fallen mentioned in this episode Anton Black Freddie Gray Emmet Till Archie Elliott George Floyd Breonna Taylor William Boo Boo Green Special thanks to  Host: Adell Coleman & Chris Colbert Executive Producers: Adell Coleman & Chris Colbert Edited & Sound Design: Byron Hunt Producers: Heather Johnson, Ryan Woodhall and Mike DuBose Associate Producers: Quinton Hill Content Distribution: DCP Entertainment Learn more about your ad choices.

WARNING CHIME 34:32 skip ahead 1 min Malcolm at that moment, with William Green's hands cuffed behind his back, locked inside of a squad car, and essentially pretty out of his normal state, he shot at him seven times and he hit him in his torso six times and he killed him right there. He didn't kill him instantly. There's video after the incident shows that Boo-Boo was still breathing.
