A Sacramento police officer was about to get married, hanging out with his groomsmen when Black Lives Matter protestors barged in and started yelling.
The officer was involved in the shooting of Stephon Clark in March. Clark was shot in the yard of his house, unarmed and carrying a cell phone. See a video here of what happened.
The shooting caused mass protests and the Sacramento police did not release the names of the officers involved due to threats.
The brother of the victim received national attention when he jumped on the mayor’s desk during a city meeting.
Why did the Black Lives Matter protestors decide to go to the wedding and confront the officer?
CBS Sacramento is reporting that the local BLM founder, Tanya Faison said, “I think they need to be approached in spaces where they’re a little more vulnerable. We’re not violent, we’re not gonna give to them what they brought to our community, we’re not gonna hurt anyone but we are gonna make them uncomfortable, and they should because someone is dead.”
A video was released showing the incident at the wedding and one protestor can be heard asking the groom, “I just wonder if you started planning your wedding before you killed Stephon Clark or after? How have you been sleeping since March 18?”

We have a right to protest in this country, but is this taking it too far?
