Police officer stated he feared for his life; why did he not await backup? Officer shot Duenez when Duenez' hands were up. Officer grabbed Duenez' hands and DRAGGED DUENEZ' body 3-4 feet, delayed calling for an ambulance, and cuffed this dying man. at 5:56 on the dashcame timeline, Officer asks for a KNIFE, twice! A knife was found in the bed of the truck, WITH Duenez' blood. The D.A. contends Duenez had the knife in his hands. IMPOSSIBLE for a knife to jump out of a dying mans hands -- who is on the ground, and into the bed of a truck. This case needs to be reviewed by a noninvolved party and higher up the chain of command: United States Department of Justice. Duenez' civil rights, human rights, constitutional rights, and the value for human life... ALL VIOLATED. Corruption in the circle of the San Joaquin District Attorney and the Manteca Police Department are for certain.

The officers had been looking for that man since earlier that day because he had been doing drugs and had physically harmed his wife, and she was the one who informed the police he had a throwing knife on his person which he did, it was later found in the bed if the truck. When the police officer pulled up he informed the man that he would shoot if he tried anything, so he should of stayed seated not tried to get out, his intent was not to surender. The officer had every right to shoot even more than once, the man was on meth one shot would of not took him down. I'm sure he was a great father from a prison cell and a great husband while he was beating on his wife. And in the time it would of taken to pull out a taser or call for back up he could of threw the knife killing the officer. I think that it is horrible that people are threatening this officer little kids when they are out it is disgusting. They are setting this mans son up to do more horrible things by teaching him to hate law enforcement that is disgusting as well they should be teaching him to not take after his father. People are saying that the officer tried plant a knife he did not the mans knife was also found at the scene which was a throwing knife, apart from the cops knife which was needed to cut the seat belt and shirt.
