“They tried to stop us from taking the freeway but they couldn’t stop the power of the people!!” 

Sacramento Police Officers Who Killed Stephon Clark Identified

Representatives of the law office of John Burris in Oakland have made public the names of the Sacramento police officers who shot and killed 23 year old Stephon Clark on March 18. The two officers fired 10 shots each at Clark. They were identified as Terrence Mercadal and Jared Robinet.

They were identified by the law firm when uncensored copies of Sacramento police bodycam footage were initially received to view with Clark’s family. In that footage the officers names were visible on their uniforms. Subsequent versions of the bodycam footage released to the public were censored by police by blurring the names out.
