KCRA 3 reporter Mike Luery recently released the following photo on twitter from the Sheriff’s Department claiming that protesters had broken the window of the vehicle. The Sacramento Sheriff Department is using this as the justification for running over a 61 year old woman at a vigil for Stephon Clark on Saturday March 31.
Immediately after the incident, the National Lawyers Guild released video of the accident which went viral. Several protesters took a picture of the SUV’s plates as it drove away and published them on social media.
The picture Luery posted is of the same vehicle and shows a broken window in the back. However one can see in the above photo that no window has been broken nor is one broken in any video released. If the photo was taken after the incident and as the SUV was leaving and shows the window in tact then that means protesters could not have been the ones to break it.
The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department is releasing a falsified report to protect officers who committed a hit and run, a hit and run which took place at a vigil for another victim of police violence.
