Sheriff Says There Were Paid Protesters At The Vigil For Stephon Clark

Sheriff Says There Were Paid Protesters At The Vigil For Stephon Clark

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones blamed "paid protesters" for causing the chaos during the rally.

At first, protesters walked alongside deputies' vehicles.

Jones admitted he had not spoken to the deputy but that, based on the video: 'There is a high likelihood that he didn't even know that he collided with that protester'.

The Sacramento Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a request for further comment.

The sheriff's department said demonstrators kicked and pounded both vehicles as they tried to get through the crowd, who had previously been protesting outside of the nearby sheriff's service station. Cleveland hit her head, injured her arm and spent several hours at a hospital, he said.

"As you can see or hear in the vehicle video and audio, there was no acknowledgement", Jones said. "He obviously could see her", said Cres Vallucci, vice president of the National Lawyers Guild, a group that monitors protests and watches for police abuse.

Another video, posted on Facebook by Akashma Marivel Guzman, shows a sheriff's SUV turning on its siren and repeatedly warning protesters to "back away from my vehicle" before the incident occurred.

About 150 people attended another vigil and protest Saturday night outside a sheriff's department office.

Jones said the deputy's duties had not changed despite the internal investigation into the March 31 crash.

California Highway Patrol officials on Monday said they are investigating the incident, and are asking for witnesses to help, including people with video or photos of the crash.

The incident happened just after 8:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The vigil, organized by the ANSWER Coalition, took place almost two weeks after Clark was shot by Sacramento police officers - and one day after an independent autopsy commissioned by Clark's family found he was shot eight times, mostly in the back.

Omalu said the proposition that Clark was assailing the officers, meaning he was facing them, is "inconsistent with the prevailing forensic evidence".

Marchers have been protesting the killing of 22-year-old Clark since the day he died nearly two weeks ago. The force of that round spun him around with his back to officers, and six rounds penetrated his back as he moved forward, the Clark legal team said. Officers are heard on body camera footage saying they thought Clark had a gun.

"Unfortunately, in many protests that have developed to this scope, there are professional protesters and professional instigators that infiltrate the protest for their own purposes, as well as participants from out of the region that inflame and antagonize the event".

The Sacramento County coroner's initial autopsy report determined Clark died from multiple gunshot wounds, and the manner of death was homicide.

During Saturday's rally, a woman was allegedly struck by a sheriff's department cruiser.
