Clark was gunned down in his grandmother’s backyard. Police initially claimed he had a gun, then claimed that he had a iron bar. The young father had a cellphone.
Clark was refused medical attention as he laid on the ground dying. The police can’t say they were scared.

Donald Trump’s comment was that it is a local matter but yet he was eager to contact Roseanne Barr over her sitcom pulling in huge ratings.
Reaction on Twitter:
Ima keep it real, I gotta digest #StephonClark’s entire situation as slowly as possible. They ran on to someone’s property and murdered a private citizen in cold blood. I need time man.

Stephon Clark was shot 8 times mostly in his back…. Didn't know cops could see a "gun" through someone's back ?!?!?!

Re-focus. They shot #StephonClark 6 times in the back in his Grandparents’ backyard without any cause. The results of the autopsy conflict greatly with the independent autopsy commissioned by the family. We need justice.
