Last week, Sacramento police officers illegally entered Stephon Clarke's backyard - and shot him down in cold blood. Since the shooting, where NO OFFICER WAS PUNISHED, the entire city has been on edge.
But since the shooting, people have been wondering about Stephon's political views and beliefs. Well, MTO News EXCLUSIVELY obtained old tweets from Stephon - that show his feelings towards Black women, and the Black Lives Matter Movement.
Clarke has just been laid to rest. At his funeral, Rev. Al Sharpton called out the gunning down of this young, unarmed Black man, saying:
"This is not a local matter! They have been killing young black men all over the country, and we are here to say that we are going to stand with Stephon Clark and his family [...] We are going to make Donald Trump and the whole world deal with the issue of police conduct!"
His mother Cecile Thompsom also spoke at the funeral saying:
"No mother should have to go through this and lose their children this type of way... This is horrific, this is violence, and all mothers need to get up and stand for peace and love because our children should not be dying like this."
Here are some of Stephon's tweets regarding Black women. He could well have been trolling. People on social media often post things for the shock factor:
