“This is their response to a community in outrage and pain; this is ​just ​another glaring example of the ​reckless nature of Sacramento law ​enforcement,” said Faison. “We will continue to demand justice for not just Stephon, but for all lives that have been unjustly taken at the hands of law enforcement.”
