Family & Supporters
On June 8, 2011 my cousin Ernest Duenez Jr was unarmed and fatally shot mulitple times in the body and face by a Manteca Police Officer in San Joaquin County. According to several witnesses, Ernest posed no threat to the officer as he exited the back of the truck with his hands up. His leg became entangled in the seatbelt and as he fell to the ground he was shot by the officer without hesitation. Each shot ensuring death being the only outcome for Ernest including the final shot to the face. The officer made the decision to use excessive deadly force with such disregard for my cousin's life. Such reckless behavior by law enforcement happens all too often and has affected too many families including mine.
