Nothing to see here, just a standard day in the ol' U.S. of A.
Austin bomber was an unemployed 20-something with no criminal record
Great to know that the domestic terrorist who was targeting prominent black families with homemade bombs and murdered multiple people had no criminal record prior to the serial white supremacist bombings, New York Post!
Unarmed black man shot to death in own backyard after police mistake cell phone for weapon
Stephon Clark was in the backyard of the home he shared with his grandparents and some of his siblings when he was killed, Clark’s brother told the Sacramento Bee.
The police department said officers were responding to a report that someone was breaking car windows nearby.
The suspect was described as a 6-foot-1 man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants hiding in a backyard.
Hiding in the backyard. Of his own home.
Police said Clark held an “object” that he “extended in front of him” as he approached two officers.
“The officers believed the suspect was pointing a firearm at them. Fearing for their safety, the officers fired their duty weapons striking the suspect multiple times,” the police department said in a release. Clark was pronounced dead at the scene.
It was a fucking cell phone. He was trying to film them. Probably hoping it would protect him from being murdered.
Fuck this entire country straight to hell.
