In the short video that was just released, Manteca Police Office John Moody is seen responding to call and racing up to a residential street. He then comes up to the car with a gun drawn ordering the person inside to come out. A man emerges and places his hands up, only to trip on his car seat belt. As he falls the police officer opens fire on him, shooting Ernest a total of 13 times, in both the chest and the face. Duenez was then handcuffed as he bled to death, as Moody 'secured the scene,' mainly looking for anything that resembled a knife or other weapon that could be used to justify the shooting.

It's clear that the police don't want us to see this footage, but it's also clear that they don't want us to get angry while viewing it. Watching Ernest being shot and left to bleed to death in a drive-way handcuffed, it's impossible to do that. And it is that anger that we feel that we must channel, direct, and get organized with.
