excerpt from the article:
"One of Grove's more controversial decisions was to not prosecute Richmond police officer Wallace Jensen for the police shooting death of Richard "Pedie" Perez. Jensen shot the unarmed Perez outside a Richmond convenience store in 2014. Jensen detained Perez for being intoxicated. Perez walked away saying he wanted to go home. Jensen tackled him and after a scuffle, Jensen shot Perez three times.
Jensen claimed Perez tried to grab his holstered firearm, but his story conflicted with witness accounts and the fact that Perez's DNA was not present on Jensen's gun or holster. In 2018, the Richmond Police Review Commission voted 7 to 1 that Jensen used unnecessary or excessive force.
Jensen took a disability with his retirement pension in 2016. He did not face any criminal charges."
