The city will take a close look at police training and protocols, he said, because the way Clark died was "just plain wrong". He said there were "various reasons" why officers would turn off their cameras' audio, but he would not say if the Clark shooting was one of them.
"A Sacramento County Sheriff's Department helicopter spotted a man they believed to be that suspect, described as being 6'1", thin, and wearing a black hoodie and dark trousers, in a backyard and they directed SPD officers on the ground to that location. "[Police] said the first day after the execution that he had a weapon, that's why they had to shoot him 20 times".
The letter drew attention to California's use of lethal force statute and its failure to meet worldwide standards, as well as U.S. standards provided by the Constitution, and called for California to revise its statute to abide by global standards and ensure accountability to families who've lost their families to the actions of law enforcement officers. "Gun, gun, gun!" the officers said as gunshots rang out.
Directed by a law enforcement helicopter, two officers came to a corner, saw a man holding something and fired 20 shots in his direction. Video recordings released during the week of March 19 seem to indicate they feared the suspect might still be armed and risky.
"Any time there is muting on this camera, it builds suspicion, as it has in this case", Hahn told KCRA. It's not clear why and the department hasn't said whether that violated department policies.More news: Christina Aguilera Debuts Stunning New Look: See the Photos

Crump is best known for representing the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, both young Black men shot to death in racially tinged incidents in Florida and Missouri, respectively. One of the march leaders told people to hold up their cellphones; police have said Clark had an object in his hand, but no weapon was found. A local attorney is weighing in, highlighting some stand-out seconds in police footage of the fatal killing, that he says could shape this case in court.
Crump made the announcement before a throng of reporters at Sacramento City Hall, where he compared the outcomes seen by suspects in the Austin bombing and Parkland shooting with that of Clark.
Clark, nicknamed "Zo", "chose nonviolence", said Crump, vowing that he will not let Clark be nonexistent in death.
