Anonymous hacktivists vow to avenge the death of Ernesto Duenez Jr., who was shot dead by Officer John Moody of the Manteca Police Department in Northern California.
The violent police shooting of Ernesto Duenez, 34, was captured on video (below) and it is graphic and disturbing.
The law enforcement officer was cleared of any wrongdoing, so Anonymous is demanding that the cop be fired from the police force immediately.
The Anonymous hacktivists are threatening the Manteca Police Department with a cyber-attack if Officer John Moody, 40, is not terminated.
The following video shows Ernesto Duenez exiting a pickup truck and getting his leg caught in the seat belt as Officer John Moody screams and points a gun at him.
Seconds later, Officer Moody begins firing bullets into Duenez, who had been accused of domestic violence. After Duenez falls to the ground dying, the cop keeps shooting the suspect in the back.
In total, 13 bullets were fired at Duenez in 4 seconds. Ernesto Duenez never had a chance to speak.
Motionless and appearing to be dead, Duenez was rolled over onto his face by another cop who then handcuffed Duenez's hands behind his back.
There are other shocking sounds and images in the video which are simply difficult to describe.
Surprising to many Californians, the Manteca Police Department said Officer John Moody's barrage of bullets into an unarmed man was a justified shooting.
The police officer claimed the suspect was holding a knife, which was reportedly found not to be the case.
The San Joaquin County District Attorney delared that Officer Moody was in the right, which many Manteca residents interpreted as meaning Ernesto Duenez deserved his death-by-cop.
Outrage has reportedly divided the Northern California city of 70,000 ever since the shooting occurred last year.
The graphic video was obtained by Oakland attorney John Burris, who has filed a wrongful death federal lawsuit against the Manteca Police Department and Officer John Moody.
"We have communicated to the Department of Justice that this man should be prosecuted for murder," Burris declared.
The video footage has now been publicly released by the Duenez Family to let as many people as possible see exactly what occurred with their own eyes.
"As heartbreaking as it is, people need to see what happened," cried Rosemary Duenez, 58, mother of the deceased shooting victim.
The decision that cleared Officer Moody of wrongdoing and returned him to active duty is now being questioned by the public because of the graphic video (below).
The Duenez Family is pursuing legal action through the courts, while the hacktivists of Anonymous are threatening cyber-vengeance against the police for the shooting of Ernesto Duenez.
