Black Lives Matter protestors crash wedding of officer who murdered Stephon Clark
Black Lives Matter Sacramento protesters recently crashed the wedding of a Sacramento police officer who was involved in the fatal shooting of Stephon Clark. In a video clip of the protest, they can be heard asking calling the unnamed officer a murderer. The group obtained the address to the venue using the website which the couple had set up for their wedding.
In the video, a woman can be heard pointedly asking the groom, “I just wanted to know if you started planning your wedding before you killed Stephon Clark or after? How you been sleeping since March 18? And I know this is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, he will not have that option.”
Protesters continued yelling “murderer” and asking for an explanation until one of the groomsmen had them thrown out of the vineyard located about an hour outside of Sacramento, California. It seems the goal of this direct action was simply to disrupt the space of the officer and his family
Black Lives Matter Sacramento founder Tonya Faison told Daily Mail, “I think they need to be approached in spaces where they’re a little more vulnerable… We’re not violent, we’re not gonna give to them what they brought to our community, we’re not gonna hurt anyone but we are gonna make them uncomfortable, and they should because someone is dead.”
