Pedie was an intoxicated young man who tried to walk away from a Richmond cop who was hassling him. The police officer, Wallace Jensen, claimed that when he tried to apprehend Pedie the unarmed young man tried to grab his gun, so he stepped back and fired 3 rounds into Pedie, killing him. The surveillance video from the liquor store doesn’t show the “altercation” but does clearly show that the cops didn’t try to render any assistance to Pedie as he lay dying on the liquor store floor. The police “investigation” was a cover up that didn’t even discuss the two (six, really) eye-witnesses that contradicted the cop’s story. The 33-year old cop subsequently Jensen retired on a full disability tax-free pension of $70,700 plus benefits because he was so traumatized by gunning down an unarmed young man who didn’t immediately follow his orders, so I guess in less than a decade he’ll be paid more in benefits and income than the family & and lawyer got in the miserly settlement. FWIW, the Richmond Police Review Commission found that Jensen used excessive force by a 7 to 1 vote. With that and a dollar you can still get a coffee some places. The police report and some cell phone evidence taken by by-standers has never been released to the family or anyone else because there was no law requiring to cops to provide such things to the family. But disgraced & disbarred Contra Costa District Attorney Mark Peterson “issued a rare, seven-page report explaining the course of the investigation, in which he maintained that the case was carefully reviewed.” The plead deal allowed Peterson to keep his pension, estimated at $128,000 per year, with adjustments for inflation
