Stephon Clark

Sacramento police locked all entrances to the Golden 1 Center after demonstrators swarmed the arena to protest the police shooting of Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man.

Dozens of protesters surrounded the arena shouting “black lives matter,” and "join us or go home!"

The Sacramento Kings played the Atlanta Hawks inside a nearly arena on Thursday night.

Protesters linked arms and refused to let ticket holders into the arena. One man was knocked out during a scuffle. There were no arrests. Only 2,000 ticket holders made it inside to watch the game.

Sacramento Kings owner and chairman Vivek Ranadivé addressed the protestors. "On Sunday we had a horrific, horrific tragedy in our community. We at the Kings recognize people's ability to protest peacefully and we respect that," he said.

According to the Sacramento Bee, Clark, a 22-year-old father-of-2, was shot multiple times in his grandmother's backyard after police mistook his cell phone for a gun.

According to reports, 2 officers responded to a 911 call of "break-ins" on 29th Street on Sunday night.

A Sacramento County Sheriff's Department helicopter pilot radioed to cops on the ground that the suspect was seen running and hopping a fence into a backyard.

That backyard belonged Clark's grandmother's house. When the 2 officers arrived in the backyard they ordered Clark to show his hands.

According to an officer's body cam, a cop shouted "gun!" and both officers fired 10 times each, killing Clark.

Clark's grandmother, Sequita Thompson, said she told family members to knock on a back window for entrance through the garage door.

The Department refused to explain why the officers muted their bodycam mics after the shooting.

On Wednesday, Sgt. Vance Chandler said the officers followed the orders of a third officer who arrived at the scene. Chandler said there were “a variety of reasons why officers have the opportunity to mute their body worn cameras.” He directed a Sacramento Bee reporter to go to the department's website to review the general orders.

The homeowner who called 911 to report a suspect breaking into his truck and smashing a neighbor's sliding glass door, described the suspect as 6-foot-tall and wearing a black hoodie and pants with a white stripe or dots.

Police bodycam shows Clark was wearing a black hoodie.

“I heard the noise and I came outside and he was standing right along the side of my truck and I grabbed my ball bat out,” the caller told a dispatcher.

The homeowner said he chased the suspect after he caught the man breaking into his truck.

The Sacramento Police Department refused to identify the two officers, but a prominent civil rights attorney identified them as Terrence Mercado and Jared Robinet.

Robinet joined the Sacramento Police Department in 2014. He made $125,144, including overtime pay and benefits, according to the Bee. Mercadal, who joined the force in 2016, made $73,261.

    Here for it and RIP to Stephon.

    So here for this.

  • Junkanoo

    They need mental health evaluations for these cops ,why do so many punk bitches become cops a need for power and authority ?

  • Renee26

    FTP!! If the perpetrator had a gun he would've pulled it on the man with the bat... The pigs stay killing us and getting away with it.

  • Renee26

    Disgusting!

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I saw a helicopter over the young man and the video showed him running over roof tops. You know, if I lived in the neighborhood I would think the same thing. Here's a thief breaking in. 20 bullets is too much! But why didn't the young man stop and hold up his hands when he was on the rooftop? He saw the helicopter over him.
    The cops are going to get off. They will get fired, charges filed and they will get off, esp. after the jury sees the video.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Did you see the overhead video of the young man on the rooftops? It was clear that he was on top of the houses, which is very suspicious. Not saying he needed 20 bullets in him, but more than likely there were calls of break-ins, and for all we know it might have been him!

  • SpillyNillie

    These officers are scared shitless of Black men and that fear causes them to react with deadly force and ask questions later. Something has to be done! This is an prime example of when a taser could have been used. Hell a damn fishermen's net...SOMETHING!

    RIP Stephon Clark

  • SweetTEE

    Its the history behind why police officers even exist in this country. They were created to, and will always, terrorize black people.

  • SpillyNillie

    So he should die for "all we know it might have been him?" He should die for being on a roof top? Or should he have lived because he didn't have a gun and didn't pose an immediate threat to the officers?

    What we know for CERTAIN is that Dylaan Roof and Nikolas Cruz shot and killed a number of innocent people, but yet they are alive and well today. Taken into custody w/o a damn scratch! Please explain...

  • SweetTEE

    Its all fun and games until the tables turn and we start picking off their family members.. ion got no kids but please beware of f'ing with them when they do get here. I would be sitting outside these mofos home ready and waiting. You take mine and I will take yours.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I wonder if there were calls recently in that neighborhood about suspicious activity or breakins. This is a sad situation all around.

  • GuestSTAR

    Guess we won't be going to 'Claim Jumper' tonight :(

  • MsPam

    Your stupid, so more black folks to go to prison for murder?! Yes that will solve everything! Sherlock!

  • Soda

    They also intended to bring that bomber in alive. Who walks up to the car of a bomb suspect unprotected?

  • Junkanoo

    They need to be trained to wound not kill on the spot they execute black men out of fear you will be too trigger happy if your'e afraid . Human lives are worth than material goods to my mind.

  • SpillyNillie

    Indeed they did. I said had he not committed suicide he'd be in a jail cell rat now...

  • GuestSTAR

    Whatever happened to NON LETHAL FORCE?? (Taser, Stun Gun) I read a couple days ago, they were responding to someone trying to break into a car. It's not like he had just violated someone, home invasion, car jacking, etc..... Nobody deserves to be shot 20 times. You can only die once.
    Seems like only these (white) MASS KILLERS make to jail safe & sound.

  • MsPam

    This is in my city, one of the cops is black, the neighborhood were Stephon was killed is bad. How come they don’t block games or traffic when they kill each other?! People were going around saying he shot 20x instead being shot AT 20x.

  • SpillyNillie

    What's your point?

  • Soda

    The fact that they can't shoot straight is fine with you?

  • MsPam

    He wasn’t shot 20x! Misinformation is what got these knee grows out here blocking traffic. The neighborhood where he was killed in, folks get killed all the time and it’s business as usuall.

  • SpillyNillie

    So your concern is the street traffic? Oh ok!

  • MsPam

    No Clown, my concern is when they’re out killing each other nobody has a damn thing to say! I doubt you would go into the neighborhood.

  • SpillyNillie

    Clown? You're the Clown. You've mentioned the traffic more than once. Secondly, the issue is that those who have SWORN to protect us are killing us! People have plenty to say about violence in their communities, so cut that shit out!

    Why the last hour at work seems like the longest. Im never volunteering to stay til 6 for anyone else. Ugh.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Why did they go to the arena instead of the police HQ to protest? When Alton Sterling was killed here the protesters were at the HQ. I'm just asking.

  • GuestSTAR

    Even if he was shot 20 times or shot AT 20 times, he was not a threat. He never fired a gun at them.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I'm from Sac. The arena is near the police station (a block or 2 away).

  • SweetTEE

    ??. Black folks are being murdered and going to jail for unjust reasons everyday ma'am. Thats the point you're missing. If someone KILLED my child, fuck going to prison. With the havoc I would cause, I highly doubt I would make it prison. And I'm personally ok with that bc Im proudly militant. I know I wouldnt be walking around praying, protesting & forgiving like most of us do. Riddle me this Batman, how do you think this will be solved? You think laws are about to redirect in our favor? Thats why we're in this situation now. Not holding mofos accountable. But ok girl.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Ok, thank you

  • the guest

    Shutting down the arena makes an economic impact.

  • JV

    Even if it was a gun, which it wasn't, his hands were up. You shouldn't be able to open fire if the person is in a submissive position, following instructions. I understand being an officer is a challenging profession, but why sign up if you're so afraid of the consequences? The fact they're able to act with impunity in these situations means they sow more discord and distrust -- and rightfully so if an innocent life is lost. And it's even more maddening because the climate is such right now that the only changes likely to be sign in the next few years are on a local level, and I'm not saying that can't help, but it's not enough.

  • MoniquetheGeek
  • Kayke

    Money matters more than our lives to them, so you have to mess with their money. I keep saying this. Black people need to opt out of all their ish. Stop giving then our money, buying their goods and our life will start to matter.... at the very least, from an economic standpoint.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I found out a while ago my son was taking a short cut to our house walking from school, and jumping over our backyard fence and had to put a stop to that immediately because all I could think is it wouldnt take much, for one of the neighbors to call the police, assuming somebody was breaking in, and he end up dead.
    This was about three years ago when we first started to seriously talk about police brutality and how vulnerable he was. This exactly what I was scared of.

  • JV

    The point is: He was killed under the suspicion he was armed -- because they assumed he was armed because he is black -- and that's wrong on the highest level. If that's not worthy of protest, I don't know what is.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yes this extreme violence on behalf of the police is disgusting. What worries me the most is they are who we call when we need help but have to worry about whether or not we're going to get a skiddish cop, or racist cop, or inexperienced one and then end up dead...

  • Stationarity

    1. The police are paid and enforcers of the law. The police should be held accountable, which is why the people are protesting. The DA or society does not have a problem putting a black man in jail and holding them responsible or indicting them and charging them with crimes. Society does have problem holding cops accountable though.
    2.Why would someone protest a criminal killing a black man? Do our taxes go to the criminal? Do we support the criminal's business? Do we allow the criminal to decide who goes to jail and when? Are they allowed to have paid leave?
    2. What does "kill each other" mean? Are you saying all black people know each other. Do you realize that there are law abiding citizens in bad neighborhoods that have nothing to do with the criminal behavior around them and can't get out for various reasons, mostly economic?

  • the guest

    Went to all white private school. When wealthy white young adults break into cars for sport, shoplift for thrill, steal, throw up in the street intoxicated, and literally break into their homes at all hours after curfew setting off alarms and it's called "mischief" and no officer of the law ever so much as raises a voice to them let alone shoots them to death.

    In fact, the white young adults laugh about antagonizing the police and getting away with it. If people can't see the wrong in this, that is a grave societal concern.

    All kinds of people are imperfect. Rich white kids run drugs out of Ivy League dorms and no one raids their dorms or shoots them to death. All kinds of people are imperfect and criminal but only imperfect and criminal black men and women get shot to death. HUMANS DON'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.

    Black people need to learn that rights are not earned through perfect behavior, rights are law and laws are broken when violating people's rights.

    So, are hoodies illegal? Because someone needs to alert Ralph Lauren, GAP, J Crew, Holister, American Eagle that they are producing and illegal form of garment that warrants being shot if worn.

  • Stationarity

    It should never be ok to kill someone whom they think had a crowbar and broke some windows... That is crazy. I am NOT saying that is what Stephon was doing but even IF he was the culprit and did have a crowbar...it should not be ok.

  • Kayke

    Misinformation?.....unless the misinformation is that he actually did have a gun....nothing else matters, as if it were 8 times it would've been better? They let off 20 shots.....some hit him and the others were strays....how many other lives could've been lost? It's a shame you think there a free kill zones in America, where just for being in a certain place your life can be taken without justification.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I had a lady sit down beside me at resturant, yep she black (we getting to go orders), so i was on the phone talking about this, i got off, she was nice, she was like that was tragic what happen, if theses black men just do what the police say they will be alright, it took everything in me not to spit on her, then here comes her whitty husband, i look at her smmfgdh, then her voice change, when he walked up...i was on 38, hooka YOU'LL be on I.D NEXT, cant stand IR couples who look down on their own to please their Massa.

  • the guest

    But thicket holders complaints and refunds cause stress to the arena and that makes an impact. If businesses suffer in response to brutality, then the businesses will put pressure to end the brutality. Loss of money talks. Boycotts make a difference.

  • IamAllnatural

    Great questions, doubt anyone has the answers.
    I can’t stand when people compare the actions of thugs in the hood to sworn law enforcement officers.
    RIP to Stephon Clark!

  • nick c

    Obviously protesting and even filing murder charges is not working since just about every jury finds them not guilty. People would to change their rules to allow popular votes to add amendments to their constitution like California does (ironic). Some changes would be qualifications, training, maybe require a degree and the most important a non lethal force weapon that actually works so the cops can drop people without killing them.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    They sure filed charges against that minority cop, real quick for killing a white lady. Sending prayers to the family, and friends. May he rest in peace, and there is justice in this case. However, I will not hold my breath.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Exactly!

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yes it is, and my son and his friends are all so sheltered when it comes to race. It was hard for him to understand. It's just a matter of time before he experiences harsh realities though.

  • Kemi

    How could they have mistaken an IPhone for a gun? For a young black father to be shot mercilessly in his backyard, at night for that matter! This is heinous..

    This is a failure of not assessing the situation, poor communication skills, inadequacy of proper problem-solve and discrimination.

    Until these lethal and unnecessary policing like this are held accountable, and America police forces renounce ideology that “bad neighborhoods” are war zones and residents that live there as enemy combatants; sadly, tragedies like this will continue to happen.

  • MsPam

    I’m black, beautiful and smart!

    I’m black who thinks for herself, unlike you who is a close minded nigga!

  • Evillene

    Well, maybe just black and beautiful...

  • MsPam

    I didn’t say that it was free killing zone, I said people were misinformed about what had happened. People here in Sacramento first stated that he got shot 20x AND THAT IS NOT TRUE! I feel bad about that young man getting killed, two young boys are without a father.

  • MsPam

    Can the DA investigate before people jump to conclusions?! Kill each other means when a black kill other black person there’s no protesting AT ALL. Why is that?!

  • Kayke

    They lost additional income from concession and merchandise. They also lost in payroll, where those manned concession and merchandise stands did not make money. Those ticket holder who did not get in will also need to be reimbursed or rescheduled.

  • MsPam

    They wanted a bigger audience and yt were just laughing at them. That was the first time that many black folks were at the arena since the Kings been in Sacramento.

  • Elevated Soul

    Too bad none of these impostors are upset when Black people kill Black people...Oh that's right,it does not fit the narrative.Like Black Democrats,White Liberals never protest Blacks killing Blacks....

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Just like the cops who physically pulled that guy who was eating the face off a corpse.

    Then the sheriff referred to the 20 y/o white dude as a 'kid'.

  • Stationarity

    The DA is the same person who works with the cops. The DA needs to be forced to have an honest and transparent investigation. So no- they can’t investigate before we start to put pressure on them because we have to force them to do it right. See how easy it is to answer the question. I will try again...What exactly do you want people to protest when a black criminal kills a black person? Do we need to protest to make sure the cops investigate? Do we need to protest to make sure the criminal ais charged with a crime?Tell me specifically what you want black people to protest when criminals that we don’t know or support in any way or fashion kill another black person?

  • the guest

    Yes, you are absolutely correct. However, addressing and protesting black people killing people, does not negate the need to address and protest police brutality. Both need to be addressed and protested. Would you like to organize an awareness and healing campaign and protest about black people killing black people? I can help best I can with planning.

  • Lucky8

    That one hungers for knowledge so teach

    The only thing we have going for us is the fact that they turned off the sound on the bodycam. They could have left it on murdered the dude and got away with it. But the sound being off the bodycam going to work against them.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    That’s grasping at straws but it’s a start. If anything that shows negligence or tampering but not necessarily murder.

  • the guest

    Climb neighbors fences and hang out in their yard all hours, climb fences and swim in strangers pools, run out on restaurant and bar checks, speed 100mph in 60mph, drive the wrong way on the highway, throw rocks at people's windows for fun, shoot their girlfriends, curse out and hit cops, hit their parents....... more "mischief" white people get into without getting shot to death by the police.

  • Erin

    No you're an Uncle Tom and hopefully the police you love so much will kill one of your loved ones

  • Elevated Soul

    Here is the thing though....No one is addressing Blacks killing Blacks which happens far too more often than cops killing Blacks.I didn't hear anyone protesting when Mujey Dumbuya, was killed....

    You can't be selective in your outrage because you will then be deemed a hypocrite......Bottom line is that,"dead is dead and murder is murder".Cops are also killing Whites too but media don't broadcast that because it does not fit the narrative.

    The problem with many Blacks is that you're limited when it comes to dialogue.I don't limit myself to being outraged when a Black person is killed by a cop...It's all bad but the hella truth is that: Blacks don't give a d@mn about "Black on Black" crime.

    OMG, I married into a family like this. My husband is originally from the East Coast and the majority of his family are still there (Massachusetts). I was born/raised on the West Coast. We've been together for over 20 years now and I still hate visiting his family. I would rather get 2 teeth pulled and 2 root canals on the same day than visit them. All the black males date 'Becky's'. Even his sisters date white men and all their friends are white. When we are all in a room together socializing and politics, music, social issues, etc, come up, BOY, Weeew. I get so angry, so flustered, my heart starts to beat fast and rather than catch a case or get thrown out, I just excuse myself, thinking these people are waaaay too old and have been called n***gger enough times to know better.

    Folks tearing up $hit their tax money paid for (Just guessing) Folks that work there lose a day because of all this. If you want to protest do it so that the message is not lost and the only attention is how rowdy and out of control it is. You take the protest to the problem. Take a lesson from other protest and handcuff your line. Sit in the spots that make it damn near impossible and the tactics used to move you would help your cause. However before you commit think hard. Who is going to bail you out if you get locked up. Do you hv medical insurance because you might need to get checked out. Will you keep your job if don't show up for your shift and your reason is you got locked up. And just in case a reporter ask you a question don't act a fool and do shout-outs.

    True but most Blacks refuse to deal with "the violence Blacks commit against other Blacks"....

    The ignorance and foolishness you see from Blacks on this very thread is very typical in the Black community.These hypocrites only get upset when a cop,kill a Black person while excusing Blacks who do the same.This is why Black people are seen as a jokey joke!

    Many of these ignoramuses get their cues from White liberals and White liberals don't give a d@mn about the chalk-lines in and out the hood.

    These fools want society to value Black life and yet these ignorant hypocrites don't because they are selective in their outrage.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

  • NeverSurprised

    Well, BLM has over $100 mil in its coffers. One would think THEY would bail out their protestors, but somehow I doubt that will happen. They are blocking an arena rather than, as you say, chaining themselves to the local police precinct (for example) and preventing officers from being able to sign in to work because the arena represents potential future million dollar donations to BLM. The police precinct does not.

  • NeverSurprised

    BLM has been enriched to the tune of $100 mil by white liberals, yet not a single black person can tell you how that money is benefitting black folks. To keep the money rolling in, all they are required to do is organize a "march" when a black person is killed by a police officer, yet remain silent when THOUSANDS of blacks are killed in their own neighborhoods each year by other blacks.

  • Elevated Soul

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    That’s a mighty assumption on what I “like”. I agree that black on black is a problem but to say that should be focused on first is stupid. Every race of people commit crime. Why is it just a “black on black” thing. That is a terminology made up by White Supremacist to deflect from the mass murders they themselves commit against Black people.

    I have a problem with the way a black man can be gunned down by the police and there is no accountability being held by the police in so many cases time and time again it's justified I am just tired of seeing young black men gunned down like animals and until we hold these police officers accountable for their actions and as black people it just baffles me why we aren't coming together more these police officers work in our communities with so much hatred and bias why work there why not stay in your own community and work now don't get me wrong all police officers are not bad it's the percentages of police officers that are bad we as black people it saddens me some of us side with this until it's your son nephew cousin when is enough enough

    Black on black crime is a narrative that you've also bought into. Crimes are a case of vicinity. Black on black crime exist like white on white crime, difference is it's not a front page news, it's not televised. You can go check the FBI stats and whites lead in all areas of crime including killing each other. They lead even after their crimes are diluted and esponged. Even with blacks wrongfully accused and imprisoned. They rape 3x more than we do, yet when a yt woman calls rape, no one say "well, that's y'all thing so white lady, you don't matter....go focus on fixing your white rape issue, before seeking help from the justice system" . Black crime has been a narrative so you and others can turn a blind eye to the real issue, which is white people and the system still killing, mistreating, using excessive forces on black people. The justification is "well they kill each other".....Cops kill unarmed white people at a far less rate than they do blacks. It's highly disporportionate and they receive more justice in those situations than blacks do. Your elevated soul must be stuck on the first floor.

  • NeverSurprised

    The Washington Post has a database of every police shooting in the country since 2015. The breakdown is thorough (age, race, gender, date, location, etc.). For those unfamiliar with newspapers, WaPo is an EXTREMELY liberal publication, and yet, the facts are irrefutable:

    Total fatal police shootings in 2017 - 987
    Total Hispanic- 179
    Total Black _ 223
    Total White - 457
    ------------
    Total fatal police shootings in 2016 - 963
    Total Hispanic- 160
    Total Black _ 233
    Total White - 466

    The remainder are "other" or ,unknown" race.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings-2016/

    Even INE loss of an innocent life is too much, but stop pretending only blacks are killed by cops. Most of you actually believe that (which is sad) because you refuse to read anything of substance and refuse to do ANY research on any topic. Instead you allow white liberals to spoon feed you the facts that THEY know will keep you in the streets and focused on everything EXCEPT the nightly carnage in your neighborhoods committed by your OWN PEOPLE.

    Yes, be angry when ANY innocent person is killed ( including the 200+ blacks killed yearly by cops.) But also be angry about the 650 people (OVERWHELMINGLY BLACK) killed in ONE American city, Chicago, in 2017 by OTHER BLACKS, Nearly THREE TIMES as many blacks were killed by blacks in only ONE city as were killed by cops NATIONWIDE. WHY aren't you equally angry about THAT?

    Now Multiply the Chicago numbers by the THOUSANDS of black lives wiped out across America by black men yearly. Why aren't you angry about it? Why arentyou marching to local gang locations and demanding that THEY respect black lives? Why isn't BLM dipping into their $100 MILLION war chest to come up with ways to address THAT problem? Can it be because they simply don't care? Or is it because there is no money to be made by focussing on the real numbers?

    BLM's millions come from WHITE LIBERALS, so they will parrot whatever words hose liberals want them to parrot, and ignore the NIGHTLY rivers of black blood in the streets.

    I downloaded the full database and am going to review everything over the weekend, so I'm sorry but I don't yet know the answer to your question. One interesting aspect is that they did include info on which victims had mental health issues and they also note instances where victims were "fleeing the scene." I am curious to see the racial breakdowns for those categories.

    They started compiling the info going back to 2015 and it will be ongoing each year hereafter. It looks like they are including everything that is public info or that they could manage to did up on each shooting, so I'll be reviewing all of their findings. It's a lot of info.

    I know. Im going to be reviewing the full database this weekend. There are indeed a lot of wuestions, but it is so well researched thst they won a pulitzer forbit. Here are some of the categories by which the database can be searched:

    State, Age, Race, Gender, Weapon, Bodycam, Mental Illness, Fleeing the Scene.

    I am really curious to see how factors like mental illness, possession of a weapon and fleeing the scene impact the overall numbers in relation to race.

    Come on Shun. You know that what we are seeing today is not representative of the intellectual capacity of black people. We are seeing the end result of DECADES of intentional "dumbing down."

    Liberal dems benefit greatly from having black people completely dependent, both physically and intellectually. LBJ said the way to keep blacks in line was for dems to to "give them a little something" and they would "have those ni@@ers voting Democrat for the next 200 years." He was right.

    Intellectual (and economic) dependency have become habitual, but it is not representative of what my people are capable of. Thinking for yourself is harder than just following the crowd, but just because it's hard doesn't mean it can't be done.

    Data means nothing, because black people only make up 13% of the population, so in reality the numbers are higher for them, versus a white person, because of percentage of white people. Let's not deflect from the racism that continues to plague our communities, especially for black and brown people. They would shoot black people for voting, or looking at a white women, so these stats mean nothing. Stand for something, or you will fall for anything. SMH!

    Thousands of Blacks,are in graves now due to the hands of other Black perps.There are also thousands of Blacks who've lived through being a victim of other Black people....Thousands are also in prison because they victimized other Blacks.

    Smart people already know that any given race will most likely be victimized by those of the same race.The problem is that ignorant Black people choose to remain in denial, when it comes to how Blacks victimized each other and that is why they excuse Black on Black crime.

    I definitely believe many of these idiots are paid to spread lies to Black people.I also believe that many are white too,which is why they are always accusing Blacks with "free minds". of being White...

    You can keep your condescending attitude to yourself. Anybody can see the raw numbers, or "basic math" as you put it, as far as total number of whites, blacks, & hispanics killed by cops. Not a big deal.
    But numbers dont tell the whole story without proper context and analysis. Only a fool or an irrational person thinks that raw numbers like that prove anything when it comes to the issue of assessing police brutality as it relates to police shooting of UNARMED black people, which is the main issue in question here.

    Lol. First, if you give condescension, please expect to receive it in return, my dear. Second, please look up the definition of "irrational." In a post about a fatal police shooting, I posted a link to the nation's most comprehensive database on fatal police shootings (a pulitzer prizewinning database, no less). Utilizing that database, I posted FACTS that thoroughly disprove the notion that ONLY black men are shot by police. That, my dear, is the polar OPPOSITE of irrational. (And you are living proof that our public school system sucks.)

    I posted a link to the database so that any LITERATE person who wishes to obtain more information can do so. It contains all public info on EVERY police shooting over the last three years. Are YOU literate? If so, I assume you are fully capable of READING and determining for yourself how many of the WHITE victims were ALSO unarmedm, since that seeems to be YOUR focus. The focus of MY post was the racial breakdown of fatal police shootings in the US, since so many seem to think that it ONLY happens to black males.

    But I have no illusions that you would actually take the time to acquire FACTS. That might cloud your ability to reach emotion-based conclusions borne of perpetual victimhood.

    The police who are policing/polling themselves doing their own data and we supposed to believe it. That is like that getting stung by bees and getting bee sting therapy and dying anyway. Those numbers are wrong because if they were right, there will be kinds of congressional hearings, police department investigations and firing. All we need is to see is a white woman on television crying about how she gonna miss her husband, knowing he wasn't shit. If she had a baby and the baby start crying, "oh hell naw" somebody gonna pay for that white woman losing her husband being shot by the police and now she gotta raise a child all by herself. We are not stupid to believe that the police is doing the data about themselves.

    The Weather Channel is now black owned. .Byron Allen, founder and owner of Entertainment Studios,bought the Weather Group from the Blackstone Group, Bain Capital and Comcast-NBCUniversal, Entertainment Studios said.

    “The Weather Channel is a phenomenal asset,” Allen said in an

    a network that’s very important, that provides us information to
    protect our families and our lives.”

    The purchase price for the channel and Local Now, a news streaming
    service, reportedly was $300 million. Entertainment Studios declined
    to confirm the figure.

    Allen called the Weather Channel “an American treasure” that
    he intends to expand.“We’re just honored to be able to own and take it to the next level,” he said. “They’re already doing great, we’re just
    going to invest more to position it for greater success”
    domestically and internationally. Go Byron Go.

It appears his mom had been trying to sell that home for some time and had it listed at different price points. It never sold and now it's listed as a short sale.

    We often see Bow posting pics with lux vehicles and wish he'd just relax into his now simple life. The money is not coming in like that, no matter what these artists try to sell us. The time they posted him flying in coach was the tell all. But yeah, that's the emotional/financial burden he's carrying right now for those who'll ask about his post. Bow/Teresa, there's nothing wrong with downsizing or starting over. Real talk.

    Preach!!! Preach!!!! I’ve been saying the same thing!!!! Majority of Officials in govt don’t care about demonstrations and rioting. It’s a nuisance and only hurts the community as they see it. Voting is what gets their attention cause it could mean their job... stop putting people in office not doing anything for a community and if they fail to do so before their term is up them still get them out. Pisses me off when I see a majority black community dealing with police brutality and unfair practices but then people in office and positions are majority white.. let’s not even talk about the men and women of color in office and not doing anything that’s even worse. As I got older watching Good Times and seeing the character of Alderman Davis really opened my eyes that voting black cause someone is black or voting cause someone promises something then don’t deliver but remains in office for years doing nothing is ridiculous...some people happy to have a job where they won’t be held accountable...I’m not going to even talk how some stuff get voted during midterms where black people have the lowest turn out .... when more people start realizing that their local govt impacts their way of living first then state then federal.. more change will come won’t happen overnight but it will come..

    Couldn't happen to a nicer person. I met Byron and his mother, Carolyn, years ago at NATPE, which is an annual tv industry market. At the time I had just started my first company and his Entertainment Studios was still pretty young, but growing quickly. His mother (who was beautiful and looked about the same age as him) was working with him at the time and we were all running around trying to drum up business and close deals. It was an exciting time. He and his mother were two of the nicest, most down-to-earth people that I met during the entire market.

    I wasn't aware that his company had grown to its present magnitude, but I am thrilled for him because he deserves every bit of this success.
    He is such a GENTLEMAN ( at least he was when I met him). Bravo Byron!!!

    Sorry not sorry I never protest. I like my life and don't care to get arrested. Better not be any sisters out there that male swirled get the latinas to ride.

  • the guest

    Your comment is perfectly stated.

    There is nothing wrong with a solid middle class life. Even with downsizing, Bow Wow and his mother are better off than most of the US population. The celeb luxury lifestyle is only fantasy and image for most who project it.

  • the guest

    It is tragic that this may very well be true. Still, no one should be shot at 20 times.

  • the guest

    Please share your forthcoming programs, meetings, protests because I would like to learn more and sign up to help end the pandemic of black people killing black people. Thank you.

  • the guest

    A long time ago in the news famous new story an undercover black police officer was shot 20 times by fellow white officers who claimed they mistook him for a criminal. Does anyone else remember that story.

  • Mec-One

    The blatant disrespect is disgusting

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    I read you comment...

    Of course blacks aren’t the ONLY ones police shoot and kill; just the highest. You didn’t disprove anything.

  • the guest

    Byron Allen was the mainstream and intellectual "Arsenio Hall" back in the day. Although, the Byron Allen Show was scheduled at odd hours, when you caught it, it was clear he was the emerging male Oprah. A talk show host who would also become a media magnate.

  • the guest

    Possibly, as mass media is used to control the consumerism of everyone, especially black people.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Parents are blessed if they can raise a young black man to adulthood without them getting shot, hasseled or killed by the police...

  • shun king

    you mad because he can be right that area that dude lived in was a hell whole

  • shun king

    black will kill you if you step on their shoe

  • shun king

    ok you have a firm understanding of we only 13% so that is skewed now take in accoutn that black male are only about 6% you still with me..but blacks account for 49% of the rapes in this country tis OF THEE

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy??

    It says that white people are evil and that you as a white man, are aware of your evilness. Not only did you admit to being white but you admitted that white people are a cancer to the earth. What goes up must come down. History always ALWAYS repeats its self.
    No
    exceptions.

    Black people were once the rulers of the earth. Then the earth was given in to the hands of the wicked ( WHITE PEOPLE). Now since you people are a destructive force and can't help but to self destruct and destroy yourselves. With your birth rates dropping and your children dying from opioids . It's only a matter of time before you and the rest of the white folks are no more. The earth is cleansing itself of you people. Despite what's going on with in the black community, NEVER EVER FORGET WE ARE SURVIVOR'S! We are the beginning and we will be the end. At this point reasponding to you is a complete waste. You and the rest of your kind are doomed.

    Do translate for us what 'mass media control on blacks' since you're so into using these conspiratorial sounding terms

  • shun king

    why when your part of the deviancy that the media promote stop acting concerned you pervert

  • TELL THE TRUTH

    congrats to him and his sprite wife. It never fails, succesful & wealthy black man in the limelight marrying a sprite. Some black men got issues, period.

  • hottlanta

    I guess Star Wars did the same thing to white people. That is why they taking opioid and meth they used to seeing strange things flying all over the place since Star Wars.

  • hottlanta

    Shouldn't you be somewhere having sex with your blow up sex doll.

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. But with all the money that's passed through his hands over his long career, he's made enough money where he could have set up a couple of businesses now that would give him a soild monthly cash flow to live on. But these dudes almost never think that way.
    It's all about flashiness and keeping up appearances. A lot of these dudes will make millions their 20's and be broke before 40. Kinda sad.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I just ignore the trolls, really.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Say it sis

  • hottlanta

    Well the NRA finally found their one black person to represent them and his name is Killer Mike. I knew it was one out there somewhere and it is him.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I'll have to search for it. You're right. Bow-wow had a small part on some TV show, CSI or something and when I saw that casting, I said, he's trying to be an actor. Not a rapper. Trying to change his stripes.
    A lot of these rappers are not as rich as you mentioned. They have to live a high-life and keep up with the jones. Shame.

    I saw blog headlines about it but I didn't click. Shad is always attention seeking, probably because he didn't have a father in his life. This is why fathers are so important in a young child's life.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Exactly. The only thing that would make those stats really relevant is if we look at how many of the men (black,white, hispanic or whatever) are unarmed. That's the whole point of the discussion --- the shooting of UNARMED men/women by police.

    What we constantly get though is faulty logic and misleading statistics from these people. It's an exercise in futility trying to have a rational discussion with some of these people.

  • the guest

    Nevertheless, that man man did not warrant being shot at 20 times.

  • V Dubb

    Really?!?!?! Thanks for the info. Dang

  • zero options

    Actually, there may be more.
    Here in texas the gunshows have healthy attendance by people of color and they're buying too.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That clown was on the TJMS this morning and he was talking about tyranny and how guns helped blacks obtain our civil rights and dumb stuff.

    I'm like I don't recall black folks needing an armed insurrection to gain our civil rights in the 60's.

    Mike sounds like his paranoid white counterparts.

  • Ni Ni

    Self hating

  • EScrazy

    This is true! He should have owned his publishing and looked into more investments. I remember his mom opened a little boutique in Deluth,GA a while back but idk if she still owns it. He’s made poor financial decisions and now it’s biting his 31 year old ass

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm with you on that. I like seeing black wealth passed down to the next generation of black offspring, instead of being diluted by whiteness.
    I can't get mad at somebody for falling in love and marrying somebody of another race. Love happens like that sometimes. But I agree that for a lot of these black men, they do it for the wrong reasons.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yes. Bow had another house in the same community years ago, but sold it. I never understood the need to keep such a huge home. Expensive home. I just knew when mom lost her boutique the home was next, but they kept it afloat.

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    Sorry but I have a few questions. In the infra red overhead shown by the helicopter, that person was shown running in his neighbors backyards and hopping fences. Now of course he didn’t deserve to die like that, but did he or didn’t he smash car windows then run from the po po?

  • V Dubb

    Of course bigger is better....never knowing if you'll be able to keep it up!! Lawd

  • Kimberly King

    omgosh yes!!! My coworker and I were discussing this the other day! They need to GO. We won't progress with weak-minded blacks.

    Hi, lovely rose! I've been around and ridiculously busy.

  • Ms. JUceeee BaaayBae

    So his mother doesn’t have the boutique she shared with Nene anymore. ? wow! That was a fast ending.

  • EMILY POST

    Awww hell was it worth it??? If he was breaking into cars... its just all bad but he shouldnt have been vandalizing peoples property either... Death is extreme but dayum Liberal California sooooo amped about protecting illegal aliens but quick to shutdown a black criminal...
