- The Clark family demands the same $ 20 million payout as the Damond family
- Justine Ruszczyk-Damond was shot by a Somali-American police officer
- She called the police after reports of a woman screaming late in the evening on an alley
- Her family filed a lawsuit with the Minneapolis police and received a payout of $ 20 million
- Clark & # 39; s family says they have not received a payout based on their black race
The family of an African-American man shot by the Minneapolis police demands a payment of $ US20 million ($ AU29 million) equal to what the family of Australian life coach Justine Ruszczyk-Damond has received.
Jamar Clark's father said that Damond and her family were treated differently because they were white.
& # 39; There is no justice for black people & # 39 ;, James Clark told a meeting outside the Minneapolis federal courthouse.

Jamar Clark, 24, was shot in 2015 during a scuffle with two white police officers from Minneapolis, Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze.
The police officers were not charged.
Damond, 40, originally from the northern beaches of Sydney, was shot on July 15, 2017 by Somali American police officer Mohamed Noor (33).
She heard a woman scream in an alley behind her home in Minneapolis and made a 911 emergency call.
Noor and his team parked the police car in the alley at the back of her house in the middle of the night.
Damond, dressed in a pink t-shirt, pajama pants and bare feet, approached the police vehicle.
Noor made the split-second decision to shoot Mrs. Damond from the car and out the window.
She was shot in the lower abdomen and died shortly thereafter.
The former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor has been found guilty of murder and manslaughter of the third degree. He is pictured above arrived in court
The 33-year-old and his partner on the spot, officer Matthew Harrity, testified that they were shocked by Mrs. Damond's sudden approach and feared ambush.
A jury found that Noor was guilty of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter last month and is facing a 12.5-year prison sentence when sentenced on 7 June.
Damond & # 39; s father John Ruszczyk and brother Jason filed a civil lawsuit against the city of Minneapolis last year and just days after the jury's guilty verdict, the city agreed to pay the family a record amount of US $ 20 million.
Clark & # 39; s family filed a civil lawsuit against the city in 2017, but the parties have not come to an agreement. Conversation discussions continue.
& # 39; We want the Jamar Clark family to get a settlement similar to what Justine & # 39; s family got & # 39; said Angel Smith El, a member of the Twin Cities Coalition 4 Jamar.
& # 39; If Justine's life is worth $ 20 million, so is Jamar. & # 39;
