A Sacramento County Sheriffs Department deputy hit a woman protesting the police shooting death of Stephon Clark and then drove away Saturday night, according to video and witnesses.
A deputy inside the police SUV could be heard on a loudspeaker repeatedly demanding protesters to back away from my vehicle before the crash at around 9 p.m. The emergency lights on the vehicle, and another nearby law enforcement car, were flashing as protesters blocked traffic.
A sign-toting woman could be seen crossing in front of the vehicle and motioning the deputy to stop as he lurched forward, according to video from a Sacramento lawyer. That's when a witness said the deputy hit the woman and drove away.
The moment of the crash was marked by screams before the footage abruptly ended.
The vehicle just sped off. It was a hit and run, said Guy Danilowitz, a legal observer for the National Lawyers Guild. They didnt even stop to see how she was doing.

Now they have another reason to protest. short video at link.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Sometimes liberals do think of the big picture more than conservatives do. She was a sacrifice. Think sacrifices mean nothing? Well you just ignored Holy Week. Oh this will be big hay.
And frankly both houses are poxed. Public service unions are largely to blame for police incidents being under deep shadow and intrigue rather than sunlight — so that even when a court renders a decision all eyes are jaundiced.
Very true. She was a martyr for the cause.
I wouldn’t call that being run over, bumped would be a better deffinition. Simple fact, emergency vehicles have the right of way when lights and sirens are on no matter the situation. Blue Lives Matter.
Just so people know- the national Lawyer's Guild had a famous member- a gal named Lynne Stewart.
Lynne Stewart was one of the lawyers attending the Blind Sheikh Abdurahman / Abdul Rahman, who was one of the coconspirators in the first world trade center bombing in 1993...and in the NY Landmarks plot.
The blind sheikh called Lynne his "Secret Dove" and used her to send messages to his terrorist group in Egypt. One of the messages she helped deliver was an order to end a cease fire. After this, his group carried out a horrific grisly terrorist attack on tourists and Egyptians at Luxor.
Yep, and she was convicted and disbarred for it and she did time. She did not think it would happen to her but it did.
My wife was slightly fascinated with the coverage and was watching the incident live through the Sacramento Bee. Protesters slowly moved out from in front of the two emergency vehicles, clearing a path for both vehicles, and as the second one moved to follow the first, the idiot walked out in front of the vehicle.
No rational person would have stopped at that moment, and it appeared the officers were responding to a call. Still unclear why the gal was carrying a laptop as well; I generally don’t protest while holding onto portable computer equipment of that size...
They didn’t stop because you are stupid enough to walk in front of a moving vehicle that outweighs you by thousands of pounds and you belong to a collective of overwrought nuts who likely would have mobbed the officer had he rendered aid.
You may qualify for a Darwin Award.
Death Race 2018. Bonus points.
The NLG is a far left Marxist lawyers’ group.
You have a duty to stop and render assistance.
The law applies to cops and the fact they were responding to a call is no excuse.
A hit and run is a felony. Any one else doing it would be in jail.
Ignore the flashing emergency lights and the warnings from a loudspeaker, and then ask me if I care what happens to you.
National Lawyers Guild attorney? Color him “red” since the NLG was created by the Soviets/CPUSA in the late 1930’s from the old Soviet front, International Red Aid.
The Guild eventually became led by a newer generation of communists/Marxists/Castroites etc as the older CPUSA Guild leaders died off. The newer ones from Ratner to Cohen to Mirer etc. were just as radical and more likely to belong to CPUSA fronts such as COC, NECLC and the NLG-creation, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), as they were to the new “Marxist kid on the block”, the “Democratic Socialists of America” (DSA). Sometimes they belonged to several such Marxist organizations at the same time, but the NLG was their common denominator.
Look them up at www.DiscoverTheNetwork.org and www.keywiki.org for more details and names.
The NLG remains an active affiliate of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers(IADL), an international Communist front which operated under the control of the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
Absolutely and with no qualifiers or extenuating circumstances???
#5. If she were a “martyr” for the cause, she would have to be dead (i.e. Rachel Corrie).
Now she’s just a lawsuit moneybag for the Left. That is why the National Lawyers Guild attorney was there, to hope for a lawsuit against the police and city.
Remember. It’s California, Jake.
Who's colluding with Moscow again?
