As we end another year and get ready to spend time with our loved ones I want each one of you to remember that my family is incomplete. On June 8, 2011 my cousin Ernest Duenez Jr. was murdered at the hands of your officer John Moody. This year will see another that we have been denied Justice and that this City Council has stood silent. The District Attorney's office sits silent. The decision made to hire John Moody, the decision to keep him on your force after the murder of Ernest and your decision to defend him and NOT be leaders and demand that this case see resolution makes you accomplices and accomplices after the fact. In any other situation, if only he did not have a badge to hide behind, he would be in prison and all of you would be indicted.Many of these local cases will be featured in an upcoming film by local hip-hop artist and filmmaker, Zar The Dip. Interviews will include families of both James Rivera Jr., Ernest Duenez Jr., as well as footage from demonstrations in Stockton and beyond.
