SACRAMENTO – The screams of justice that roar from the walls of the prosecutor's office echoed in places like Missouri, Minnesota, and New York, in other states where black men died at the hands of the police.

Name! "Went the song "Stephon Clark!" Came the answer over and over again, as a multiracial crowd of demonstrators with "Convict Cop Killer" signs put out their trouble on Thursday.

But while the volatile scene embarrassed likeness after Michael's death Brown harbors Missouri, Philadelphia in Saint Paul and Eric Garner on Staten Island, there is hope among some residents here that the assassination of 22-year-old Clark by two policemen On 18 March, it will bring about changes that can serve as a role model for the nation.

"It may be up to us to influence change, and we can do it because we are basically a very diverse, integrated community," says Joany Titherington, president of the Oak Park Neighborhood Association, in which a large part the African-American population of the city.

"We have black, brown and white people all living side by side, which is a police training theme where people shoot first and ask questions later," She says. "It's a systemic problem that national politicians do not seem to care about, though no city in America is immune to it."

Clark's death is far from the first police interaction to become tragic, as the local chapter of Black Lives Matter lists a dozen violent encounters last year alone.

But it's a death that so outraged people that they stormed city councils and blocked entry portals to Sacramento King's games.

Much of this uproar stems from the fact that these authorities were on the hunt for alleged vandalism when a police helicopter spotted a man with a tool-board in his hand. When the two policemen reached the suspect on foot, they found Clark with an object in his hand.

By stating that they feared for their safety, each officer fired 10 shots in Clark. The object turned out to be his cell phone.
