Graphic Video: Police Officer Fatally Shoots Ernesto Duenez 11 Times

December 14, 2012

The Blaze has some screencaps but their video has been pulled, at least for now. I found a full version elsewhere online.

As Duenez climbs over the passenger seat and opens a door,  Manteca police officer James Moody approaches the vehicle with his gun drawn.

Police have argued that officer Moody saw a knife in the suspect’s right hand and feared he might throw it at him or charge at him with it. “Drop the knife now!” Moody can be heard shouting in the video. “Hands up! Hand up Ernie! Don’t you move, Ernie, don’t you move or I’ll shoot you.”

Video below from here. A full report here. This was not a nice guy.

Investigators found a knife in the bed of the pick-up truck where Duenez was a passenger. Duenez was a parolee with convictions for felony evading arrest, vehicle theft, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of controlled substances, burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, participation in a criminal street gang and statutory rape.

Manteca police said he was considered armed and dangerous. Duenez’ family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city earlier this year.

    The person who was shot was NOT in the bed of that truck, though he did appear to turn around and maybe toss something into the CAB, the story says he was “in the bed”, which is the open area in the rear of the truck and he’s clearly seen exiting the truck from the passenger door!
    Dude should have done what he was told to do and he’d probably be alive today…

    See how fast she puts her hands up when he says “Hands up”. The guy didn’t comply, and was making aggressive gestures — taken as either trying to run or trying to attack the cop. In either case, he didn’t put his hands up, didn’t move slowly, and make sudden jerky movements. The cop had told him don’t move, I’ll shoot you. Another known gang member off the streets.

    The cop took it personal & knew he could be cleared no matter what,so at his first chance he went trigger happy..

  5. Crepster.. says:

    That cop had options,but he was disgusted & took it personal thus creating a motive of premeditated 187,its obvious bcuz how they treated Ernie who was dying ,they cuffed him with gun still thats a scary sad murder if I ever saw one R.I.P Ernie.
