Stephon Clark was shot six times in the back and eight times total by Sacramento police officers, according to a private autopsy released Friday morning by his family's legal team, a finding that may roil emotions in a city already on edge about the shooting of the unarmed black man.

The autopsy found that there were no bullet entries from the front. Instead, the review concluded that Clark was facing a house with his left side to officers when they opened fire and hit him first in the left side under the arm. The force of that round spun him around with his back to officers, and six rounds penetrated his back moving in a forward trajectory, the Clark family legal team said

reserving judgment. But, if this evidence holds up, this was an execution. There's no way that Clark could have been advancing towards police if he was shot in back that many times.

Obviously he was walking backwards towards them in a threatening manner with a white iPhone that looked like a crowbar then a gun.

The cops should claim he was a Hillary associate who committed suicide.

Looks like the best defense they could come up with in this situation.

This story screams 'turning point.' If ever there was one, and the countless past isn't enough, this should be the one. That poor family. That is no way to go.
