Killers of teenage informant sentenced
In 1999 17 year old Chad Mac Donald of Brea California was viciously beaten and murdered for working as a police drug informant,while his girlfriend was raped, shoot in the face and left for dead.
In January his killers were sentenced to life in prison without parole. The officials who cynically coerced Mac Donald to work as an informant face no penalties whatsoever.
Police in Brea acknowledge that Mac Donald was recruited as an informant after he was arrested for possession of methamphetamine but claim he was no longer working for them when he was murdered.
Spotlight on Brea Police Department
The very conservative 4th District Court of Appeals recently ruled that the City of Brea and the Brea PD maybe sued for their actions prior to the tragic death of juvenile narcotics informant.(High school student Chad Mcdonald was murdered and his girlfriend was raped then left for dead by a drug dealer.) This follows on the heels of the John Taylor civil rights claim,which,if even partially substantiated,should give rise to a criminal civil rights investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.
1 million Dollars paid by the City of Brea to head off a Criminal Civil Rights Investigation. In the tragic death of Chad MacDonald.

Juvenile Informants Illegal without Court Authorization
Governor Wilson has signed Assemblyman Scott Baugh's Assembly Bill 2816 into Law to prohibit the use of juvenile informants without approval from a court. The bill was introduced following the murder of 17 year old Chad McDonald from Orange County who had been assisting Brea Police as an informant. McDonald agreed to the arrangement as a plea bargin in his own arrest for a drug offense. McDonald served as an informant but was later arrested again on drug charges. Brea Police ceased using McDonald as an informant an soon after, McDonald was murdered and his girlfriend raped and shot.

www.ocweekly.com This link has a good story on just how disgusting the actions of the City of Brea and there Police Dept were. If the Assembly having to pass a law against this type of action does not get the point across. Brea's City Manager..
