California lawmakers mull ways to make police liable for deaths like Stephon Clark's

Sacramento, Calif. -- California legislators are exploring ways to make police liable for deaths related to the use of lethal force.This comes after investagators concluded that the officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark last year did not commit a crime. Clark was unarmed at the time of his death.

Council to its streets, shouts of "Stephon Clark" have pitted police against the community. The shooting death of 22-year-old Clark by Sacramento police last year -- and other high-profile shootings of unarmed black men -- have also pivoted elected officials to introduce legislation to make police criminally liable for such deaths.

So they're mulling it over are they. Someone thinks they can define deaths like Stephon Clark's. Mulling sure is the correct word for what they're trying to do.

Cases like Stephon Clark's are the ones which squeezed through the cracks in the legal code. They have to define it in order that they may write new criminal legal code to fill in that crack.

They're sure going to have to do a whole lot of mulling with this one big task before them, an industrial mulling machine might help. Might be a necessity due to the infinite volume space they have to mull.

In case you're wondering how it works, it goes round and round in a counter clockwise direction in that steel tub. It doesn't grind, it squishes exceeding fine.


After they finish with that muller at the state capital they might want to loan the machine to the folks in Washington DC who are mulling over how to define an assault weapon so we can ban them. They've got a hell of a job before them too.

The first step in the best way to ban assault weapons is to call them something else.

An accusation of racial profiling against AMC's Ahwatukee theater by a Phoenix man who posted cellphone videos of his encounter has sparked an outcry on social media and prompted some to call for a boycott of the movie-theater chain.

Larry Shelton, a movie-theater patron, says he was asked to leave the theater after being accused of not paying for a ticket and refusing to show his ticket to a security guard who approached him in the theater on Saturday.
