We are committed to a complete, thorough investigation of Ms. Bambo’s tragic death and we grieve the tragic loss of this promising, young life.”

Clark was lethally shot by Sacramento cops in 2018

The NFL is proceeding with its pledge to carrying attention to social justice issues by discharging a PSA about Stephon Clark, an unarmed 22-year-old Black man who was lethally shot by two Sacramento cops in 2018

The PSA, named “Justice for Stephon Clark,” was narrated by Se’Quette Clark, his mother. “Stephon is a textbook middle child,” she said in the clip. “He is an overachiever — like when he played football, he’s the one who picks the team spirit back up. Stephon is so charismatic. He’s the life of the party. You wouldn’t know that he’s an honor roll student. He’s such an awesome father, it makes me proud. My family will never be the same without Stephon.”

The PSA at that point played a clip from a correspondent saying that the officer confused Clark’s cellphone with a firearm. His mother at that point kept on clarifying the real-time events which prompted her child’s demise. “What the world lost, was a living example of someone doing the right thing in their day-to-day life,” she added.

Clark was shot and executed in his grandma’s backyard in March 2018. Sacramento cops Terrence Mercadal and Jared Robinet were purportedly scanning the area for a suspect who was supposedly breaking vehicle windows in the area. Clark was shot at any rate multiple times and the officers guaranteed he had a firearm. No firearm was ever discovered, just Clark’s telephone. No charges were documented against the two officiers. 

“With sincerity and gratitude, I would like to thank Roc Nation and the NFL for choosing to honor the life of my son Stephon Clark, who was unjustly stolen from us on March 18, 2018, by Sac PD officers Terrence Mercadal and Jared Robinet — who are still employed and patrolling our streets,” Se’Quette said in a news release. “As a mother, I can’t help the immense feeling of pride knowing my son’s life will affect so many people for generations to come.”

The “Justice for Stephon Clark” PSA video is the fifth one created by Roc Nation and the NFL to elevate attention to end systemic racism and police brutality. “We want to continue to raise awareness for victims of systemic racism to ensure their stories are not forgotten,” said the NFL’s Anna Isaacson in a release. “As part of Inspire Change, we will use our platform to recognize these individuals throughout history and support organizations that foster positive relationships between law enforcement and their communities.”
