Roads in Sacramento, California were blocked on March 23, during the second day of protests related to the shooting death of Stephon Clark. Protesters can be seen in this video halting the traffic and jumping atop vehicles. The Sacramento Bee reported the protests “turned ugly” on Friday when one bystander was accosted. The protests delayed vehicle traffic, light rail services and bus services. This video shows protesters stomping on vehicles stuck in traffic and confronting officers. “Unlike Thursday’s largely peaceful march, the protest appeared to be loosely organized, at best. The group spent hours marching haphazardly through downtown streets, stopping twice at the Capitol and making decisions on the fly as to where to go next,” the Sacramento Bee report said. Clark was in his grandparent’s backyard, holding a cellphone, and was shot at least 20 times by two officers. Police released video and audio recordings of the incident on March 21.
