Announcing the findings of his independent inquiry, Attorney General Xavier Becerra agreed with the Sacramento County district attorney’s conclusion that the two officers had sound reason to believe the man they shot, Stephon Clark, 22, posed a lethal threat to them. The D.A.’s decision on Saturday not to prosecute the officers, who police said mistook Clark’s cell phone for a gun, has angered community activists and touched off three nights of protests in Sacramento, the state capital. At a City Council meeting Tuesday night, hundreds of angry people packed the council chambers, speaking to the mayor and council members for about four hours, becoming raucous at times with many in the crowd calling for the firing of the city’s police chief, the Sacramento Bee reported online.
