Kendrec McDade

It’s not as if cops don’t do this all the time. I guess that’s why we kind of tune out after a while; our outrage meters are in the red zone so often, it doesn’t even register. Sometimes, as in this case, the circumstances are murky.

But we know that some cops feel entitled to shoot people. The odds are greatly in their getting away with it, especially when the victim is a minority, or similarly vulnerable. But we it to the victims to bear witness, at the very least.

And it’s time we pushed for a national discussion on cops and racism.

One thought on “Kendrec McDade

  1. “What also matters is that, according to the police, the officers never activated their patrol car camera. It is supposed to go on automatically if the lights or siren are used. But Pasadena police policy is that patrol officers don’t use those for armed robberies. However, it can be started manually. Thus, no tape exists of the incident.”

    BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT! They purged the tapes. Had a gun been under the kid’s waistband and the family claimed it was planted, the tape would be right there. The camera caught that shooting especially from the officer in the vehicle. Something on the film stunk!
