USA: Hundreds attend funeral of man killed by police

Hundreds attended Stephon Clark's funeral in Sacramento on Thursday after he was killed by police earlier this month. The Bayside of South Sacramento Church was overflowing with family, friends and activists, many had to wait outside. Reverend Al Sharpton spoke during the ceremony saying “this is not a local issue, it's a national problem, a problem that this president wants to ignore... Еще.” Twenty-two-year-old Stephon Clark was killed by police officers who falsely believed he was carrying a firearm while he was at his grandmother's house on Sunday. The case has provoked widespread outcry following a series of similar incidents throughout the US in recent years, with protesters marching to the NBA arena where the Sacramento Kings were forced to play the Atlanta Hawks in front of a sparse crowd of spectators.
