Since the lawyers couldn't get along, the judge overseeeing the lawsuit Kendrec McDade's parents brought against Pasadena police had to lay down the ground rules this week. U.S. Magistrate Judge Fernando Olguin wrote in order issued Monday that he was troubled by the conduct of lawyers who squabbled during the June deposition of Oscar Carrillo. Carrillo called Pasadena police on the night of March 24 to report that he was robbed by two men with guns. A few minutes later, officers who responded to the call encountered McDade, 19, who was unarmed, and shot him seven times.

A law degree is no guarantee of maturity. That much came clear last month in an incident involving counsel for the city of Pasadena and the family of the late Kendrec McDade. McDade's death at the hands of Pasadena police is the most serious incident that has occurred in the city for some time. An unarmed African-American 19-year-old was shot to death on a Pasadena street, causing a family to grieve, a community to grow restless, and the city's police department to undergo multiple probes of its training and procedures.

The man who lied about being confronted by armed men during the 9-1-1 call that led to the March 24 shooting death of 19-year-old Kendrec McDade by a Pasadena police officer will not face manslaughter charges, the Los Angeles County District Atty.'s Office has ruled. Oscar Carrillo, 27, told an emergency dispatcher that two men who had stolen items from his car had robbed him at gunpoint. Carrillo later admitted he lied about the weapons in hopes of receiving a faster police response, according to Pasadena police.

What happened on the March night Pasadena police shot Kendrec McDade? Video is both a key part of the available evidence and a giant missing link. In our view, police officers should more often be required to run video in their encounters with suspects. It is undisputed that two officers pursued McDade as they responded to a report of an armed robbery. It is also undisputed that Oscar Carrillo, the man who reported that his assailants were armed, lied in order to get a more urgent response from police.

The two Pasadena police officers who shot unarmed Azusa teenager Kendrec McDade during a robbery investigation one year ago acted “within departmental policy,” an internal review of the incident has determined. Findings of the Pasadena police administrative review board were announced in a brief statement Wednesday. Pasadena police officers Jeffrey Newlen and Matthew Griffin shot McDade, 19, during a March 24, 2012, police pursuit that ended near the intersection of Orange Grove Boulevard and Sunset Avenue.

The 911 caller who lied about being robbed at gunpoint the night Pasadena police shot and killed unarmed teenage robbery suspect Kendrec McDade agreed Monday to plead guilty to false reporting charges. Oscar Carrillo will serve 90 days in jail and perform 90 days of community service after he surrenders himself at the Pasadena courthouse on June 27, his attorney, Andres Bustamante, said. Carrillo will also receive 36 months of probation and pay a restitution fee of roughly $3,000 to the Pasadena Police Department, city spokesman William Boyer said.
