Video shows that police shoot black men in the back at a disproportionate rate
Pasadena, Ca. – Nationally renowned civil right and personal injury attorney Ben Crump, co-counsels Career Harper and Dale Galipo, and the family of Anthony McClain will hold a news conference on March 22nd, one day before what would have been his 33rd birthday, to announce that the video is evidence of unjustified shooting.
McClain, a 32-year-old Black mangas shot and killed by a Pasadena police officer on August 15, 2020. McClain was in the passenger seat of a vehicle stopped for a missing front license plate. Police officer Edwin Dumaguindin shot McClain twice while he was running away from the scene. He died later from his injuries.
Attorney Ben Crump released the following statement:
“Once again, a Black man was shot in the back by an officer who took an oath to serve and protect.
This video and Anthony McClain’s death is just as atrocious as what we saw happen to Jacob Blake. Anthon McClain was unjustifiably shot in the back. Just watch the video.”
