Inside the Kill Zone

Eyewitnesses contradict official version of Surf City shooting

Steering told the Weekly that putting eyewitnesses on the stand who say they never saw MacDonald rush towards the officers will be crucial to his wrongful death case. Given that the DA's office has never filed charges against a law enforcement officer for pulling the trigger in the line of duty, he's not surprised that the officers were officially cleared of the shooting. "For that to happen, Ashley MacDonald would have had to be handcuffed, lying face down on the ground when they shot her," Steering said. "And there'd still be no charges filed unless you had a videotape to prove it."
