Stephon Clark is the latest face of police brutality.

Clark, a 22-year-old Black man who lived in Sacramento, was fatally shot by police in his backyard on March 18. The local police force says officers fired at him 20 times, sparking outrage and protests within the community. The authorities claim they were on the scene to investigate reports of a break-in. They confronted the 22-year-old who ran. Police fired nearly 20 shots at Clark claiming they thought he had a gun. When the smoke cleared, it was discovered he was only holding a cell phone.

New details have emerged, with a family-ordered autopsy revealing Clark was shot eight times in his back.

Diddy posted his outrage on social media. “In his grandmas backyard!,” one caption reads.

“I want the world to see!!” he noted on another. “FUCK YOUUUUU!!!!! I’m so FUCKIN MAD RIGHT NOW!!!!!” he added, disgusted.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg issued a statement urging the community to work together through nonviolent civil action “as we pursue justice and demand reform.”

“We have an obligation to everyone involved, including the family of Clark, to wait for the full findings and results from the official autopsy and investigation,” Steinberg said. “As the mayor of our city, I assure the community and the public that we will aggressively seek answers to all of the questions the community is rightfully asking.”

Just as important, the mayor said, “we will aggressively seek appropriate change to the protocols and training that led to this unacceptable outcome.”

Kyle Kuzma Signs Deal With GOAT To Wear Rare Nikes

Los Angeles’ Lakers’ second-year forward Kyle Kuzma has signed a deal with GOAT, the world’s largest marketplace for authentic sneakers, making him the first athlete to partner with a sneaker reselling platform.

“GOAT has inspired me to start collecting more seriously and build my style around sneakers,” said Kyle Kuzma. “People assume that, as an NBA athlete, you can get access to any kind of sneaker you want. When in reality, it’s hard to get the exclusive releases or shoes from the past, and feel confident they’re authentic. GOAT gives me a second chance at not only the limited releases I missed, but also the shoes I wasn’t able to afford growing up.”
“GOAT has always celebrated great athletes,” said Eddy Lu, co-founder and CEO of GOAT. “Kuzma is emblematic of the passion, focus, and determination that reflect what it means to be great. We couldn’t be more proud to have Kuzma represent the GOAT brand, and inspire others both on and off the court.”
Since the NBA removed its restrictions on what color sneakers players can wear on the court.  The deal will allow Kuzma to wear any color combinations of rare kicks.
