The man who falsely told a police dispatcher that he was robbed at gunpoint just before Pasadena police shot 19-year-old Kendrec McDade will not be charged with manslaughter in McDade's death, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office ruled this week. Police have said the sequence of events that ended in the March 24 shooting of the unarmed Azusa teen began when Oscar Carrillo, 27, told an emergency dispatcher that two men who stole items from his car on Orange Grove Boulevard had used a gun in the crime.

Maybe I'm not getting the facts correct, but I've been known to misunderstand things, so this confusion I'm experiencing isn't exactly an anomaly. Readers will no doubt set me straight, as they often do, even when I have a clear vision of what I'm writing about and the position I've taken on the issue. Kendrec McDade, an unarmed black male teenager, was shot to death by two Pasadena police officers in northwest Pasadena, also known as the 'hood, on March 24, 2012. The incident began when police dispatch received a 911 call of a suspected robbery with a weapon.

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.
