Kendrc McDade Fathers Pleads For Help!
" Today on Power Talk with Lorraine Jacques White, we looked into the case of Kendrec McDade.  Our special guest was his father and attorney Caree Harper.  They called in to spread the word about the murder of   Kendrec McDade, whom was shot and killed by two Pasadena police officers, after they received a false 911 call about an armed robbery. Kendrec McDade was unarmed and was not a participant in any crime.  The police who shot him have not been charged.

Pasadena police officers who fatally shot a 19-year-old unarmed man after a 911 caller falsely claimed the young man had a gun did not record any audio of the incident on personal recorders, officials said Monday.

The March 24 shooting of Kendrec McDade, 19, by officers Jeff Newlen and Mathew Griffin is now the subject of four investigations by Pasadena police, the L.A. County district attorney’s office, the county Officer of Independent Review and the FBI.

McDade, a former Azusa High football standout, was African American and the two officers are white. 

Pasadena police have already revealed that because the police car was not rolling in emergency response mode with lights and sirens on, no video or audio of that night’s events were captured. The “lights and sirens on” mode automatically triggers recording devices in the police cruiser. "
