Sacramento Sheriff Said Professional Protesters Were at the Stephon Clark Vigil

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said that “professional protesters” flooded a weekend vigil honoring Stephon Clark, a 22-year-old unarmed black man shot and killed by Sacramento police officers.

The Sacramento community has staged days of protests over the death of Clark, whom two Sacramento police officers shot in the back 7 times on March 18, according to an independent autopsy. During a news conference Monday, Jones called the vigil on Saturday night a “peaceful, meaningful assembly with little incident” — until a Sacramento County sheriff’s police cruiser struck a 61-year-old protester. That really got the paid protesters going, according to Jones.
