The morning after protests roiled Sacramento and local clergy implored him to do the opposite, Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that he would not bring criminal charges against the two officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark, a 22-year-old black man, in his grandmother’s backyard about a year ago.
“Our investigation can’t change what has happened,” he said.
Mr. Becerra’s announcement yesterday came days after the Sacramento district attorney, Anne Marie Schubert, said her office wouldn’t prosecute the officers, though Mr. Becerra said the two offices came to their conclusions independently.
Mr. Clark’s death has been a flash point in California, where it’s the latest version of a tragic story line that has played out across the country: An unarmed young black man is killed by police officers who said they believed he had a gun and believed their lives were in danger.
Here’s what you need to know about the case:
The legal fights are far from over. In January, Mr. Clark’s family filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the city and the two officers.
And the federal authorities announced later on Tuesday that they would investigate whether Mr. Clark’s civil rights had been violated.
Also, after protests on Monday night ended in 84 arrests of demonstrators and the detainment of a longtime Sacramento Bee reporter, Mayor Darrell Steinberg directed the city’s public safety accountability office to investigate what happened. Protesters said they’d been effectively tricked and trapped by police officers when they said they were trying to get to cars to leave.
Protests were expected to continue Tuesday night.
What does this mean for the attorney general?
Mr. Becerra has a powerful, high-profile elected office in a progressive state — an office that has historically been a springboard for leaders with even bigger political ambitions, like former Gov. Jerry Brown and Senator Kamala Harris.
But while Mr. Becerra has become well-known for leading the state’s fights against President Trump’s agenda, suing the administration now 47 times, he’s been less aggressive about policing the police, as CALmatters put it.
Recently, he’s taken heat for not ruling out legal action against journalists who got a list of police officers who had been convicted of crimes through a public records request.
This all comes amid growing discussion about what truly progressive criminal justice policies look like. The question of whether Mr. Becerra’s predecessor, Ms. Harris, can effectively pitch herself as a “progressive prosecutor” has been up for intense debate as she runs for president.

Imagine someone saying that the people in Los Angeles are “not real foodies” and that they’re “not too interested in eating well.”
It’s unbelievable now — and it probably should’ve been almost a decade ago when Jean-Luc Naret poo-pooed the city’s dining scene, according to The Los Angeles Times. Mr. Naret was the director of the vaunted Michelin Guide, which had recently retreated from L.A.
Now, though, Michelin is coming back to L.A., as well as Orange County, San Diego, Sacramento, Santa Barbara and Monterey with a new statewide restaurant guide in June. Its existing guide to San Francisco and the Bay Area will be folded into the new publication.
The unprecedented move will make California the only state to be covered in its entirety by Michelin inspectors, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
And if you want to read about an early L.A. candidate for those three coveted stars, here’s a fascinating, moving profile of Niki Nakayama, the owner and chef of n/naka, from The New Yorker.
