'Show Me Your Hands' : Police video shows Stephon Clark in a hail of gunfire.

I haven't watched the video yet, but a friend who lives in Sacramento says:

I am angrier than I was this morning. I don't know how anyone in this city could feel good about calling the police at this point. Leaving aside all the very worst parts of this, these officers are just shockingly reckless. They created the dangerous situation and then they made it deadly. They literally shot in the dark, over an alleged misdemeanor.

The helicopter pilot also lies -- says the suspect is running when he is demonstrably not -- and there is nothing visible in the man's hand.

911 call

Stephon Clark shot six times in back - eight times in all - private autopsy says

"The proposition that he was facing the officers is inconsistent with the prevailing forensic evidence," the pathologist said a morning press conference.

“He was facing the house, with his left to the officers," Omalu said. "He wasn’t facing the officers. His left back was facing to the officers.”

This also means that in a residential neighborhood, in the dark, 12 shots went wide.
