It’s been nearly a year since Sacramento police shot and killed Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man, in his grandmother’s backyard. Sacramento has not forgotten.

This week the Sacramento district attorney decided not to charge the officers, who shot Clark seven times, mostly in the back. The DA said Clark had drugs in his system and suggested he’d been suicidal.

That triggered five days of protests in the streets and 84 arrests Monday night. “We expected the DA not to prosecute. We didn’t expect her to convict Clark of his own murder,” one of the protesters said during Monday’s march.
