Twenty times.

This is the number of shots fired by policemen that killed Stephon Clark in South Sacramento on March 18.

Twenty times.

The twenty-two year old African-American father of two. Shot for holding a mobile phone; senselessly mistaken for a gun.

Twenty times.

The video of his death can viewed freely on the internet. At the moment he died, Stephon didn't say a word, he just extended his arms. He was probably too scared for his life.

Twenty times.
