Mother of Teen Shot Dead by Pasadena Police Seeks Justice

Posted: Updated:

"it's more than the cops who shot and unarmed teenager will probably ever get " the reaction from Dale Galipo, attorney representing the family of 19 year old Kendred McDade, shot and killed by Pasadena officers who were responding to an armed suspect 911 call.  The caller, Oscar Carrillo, would later admit he had lied about the "armed" part. But the officers, saying McDade was "reaching for his waistband", shot him dead. No gun was found on him.

Carrillo was just sentenced to 90 days in jail for calling in the false report. The officers were cleared of any wrongdoing.

"They asked me that night what I wanted" sobbed Anya Slaughter, McDade's mother, and "I said I want my son back, but since I can't get him back, I want the officers to be prosecuted…"

Probably not going to happen, although a civil lawsuit is in the works. Galipo  is the same attorney that got a 6 million dollar settlement for the Long Beach family of a man who was shot by police, after pointing a garden hose nozzle at them. "they always say ‘he was going for his waistband' and they never find anything in the waistband" adds Galipo.

No comment from Pasadena police.
