Matt Barnes to Launch Scholarship Fund for Stephon Clark’s Children

In addition to helping cover the funeral costs for police gunshot victim Stephon Clark, former NBA baller Matt Barnes has begun a scholarship fund for Clark’s two sons.

The Huffington Post reports Barnes, who has played for both the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors, announced the scholarship fund for the Clark children during a rally for the Sacramento man. He also spoke on the importance of police building relationships with the communities they serve.

“We fear what we don’t know. We don’t know these cops, so we fear them. They don’t know us, so they fear us,” Barnes said. “When you get out and know someone on a first-name basis, when you are called to the situation, next time you may be able to defuse the situation.”
