Pasadena Must Release Redacted Report on Fatal Kendrec McDade Police Shooting: Judge
A Los Angeles County judge ruled Thursday that the city of Pasadena should make public at least a portion of an independent consultant’s report into the 2012 fatal police shooting of an unarmed African American teenager.
Superior Court Judge James C. Chalfant rebuffed efforts by the Pasadena Police Officers Assn. to keep the entire report secret, ruling instead that he would redact portions of the document that rely on the city’s administrative investigation of the shooting.
Chalfant said he would decide later exactly which sections of the report should be withheld from the public.
The report, written by the Office of Independent Review Group, examined the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Kendrec McDade and made recommendations for how the department could improve, according to Chalfant’s order.
