Californian Trayvon: Cops Gun Down Unarmed Black Teen

A second shooting of an unarmed African American youth by US police is fueling suspicion of institutionalized prejudice in the force and threatening social unrest across American suburbs.
A 9-11 call claiming an armed robbery had taken place sent Pasadena police in chase of armed suspects. They followed two young men without deploying their police sirens. Two officers eventually opened fire on the youths, killing Kendrec McDade, a 19-year year-old Citrus College student, who cops claim had moved his hand towards his waistband.

McDade, a stand-out football player for the Azusa High School Aztecs, was unarmed yet died in hospital of multiple police gunshot wounds.
Local man Oscar Carillo, who placed the 9-11 call, admitted under questioning he had lied to police that the suspects were armed to generate a faster response, after McDade’s 17-yr old companion had broken into his car. The 17-yr-old has a criminal record of burglary, grand theft and failing to register as a gang member. Carillo is now charged with involuntary manslaughter by the trigger happy police.

looks like maybe no more warning shots.

Do you think maybe the cops should actually SEE a gun before they MURDER someone?
Geez, they were not even sure they had the correct perps at the time.
We need military code of justice for police. In other words, 20 to life for murder.

You really are that much of an idiot!! What I just read said he was in college, dumb a**! You have nothing intelligent to say, just speak of things you really know nothing about! What exactly is a thug? Well then again, it would actually pain me to hear another pompous comment from you!

I thought the difference between Zimmerman and the Police was formal training to avoid this end result as you can see there is no difference.

Am I the only one that read the statement that, the person who called the crime in, admitted lying that the perps were armed? He's also been charged with involuntary manslaughter because his lie to the police caused McDade to be shot when he reached for his waistband. The cops were doing the correct thing considering that they were chasing (reported) armed suspects who chose to break the law.

One less thug to victimize law abiding citizen. Wish WCS, MDSP and SPD would off a few, save some $$$ on housing them down at ECI.

A simple mistake but the point remains he was in the company of a thug.you seem so intelligent use the dictionary to find the meaning.why be around a person that's trying to break into cars ? Do you think that there is no thugs in college? Look at umes.look at campus police stats. It says there was a Chase.no sirens but lights im sure.
He's a thug.your a moron.get over it
