VIDEO: Deputy Shoots Fleeing Jaywalker Multiple Times In Back, Executes Him With "A Coup de Grace Kill Shot"

Chris | InformationLiberation


A deputy intent on citing a group of men for jaywalking shot a suspect who fled the scene in the back multiple times, then stood over him and executed him with what his family's lawyer described as "a coup de grace kill shot."

The deputy claimed in his incident report the alleged jaywalker pulled a gun on him and pointed it at him, yet newly released surveillance video appears to contradict his report as it shows the man fleeing from the deputy almost immediately, additionally he never took one shot, and ABC News reports the man's family says the weapon found on their son did not contain his fingerprints. (See this video on the routine practice of "drop weapons.")

KPCC reports:
The family of a 20-year old man a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy shot and killed two years ago says surveillance video released a few weeks ago but made public Friday shows a different story of what happened.

Jonathan Cuevas was out late in Lynwood on October 10, 2010 with two friends walking to a house party. They stopped at a liquor store on Long Beach Boulevard to buy beer and snacks. The group of men jaywalked across the street around 1:45 a.m. when a deputy patrol car pulled up to cite them for an alleged pedestrian violation.

The video, which has no sound, shows the deputy getting out of his car as Cuevas takes off running. The deputy shoots at Cuevas, who falls a few steps later at the corner of Josephine Street and Long Beach Boulevard.

“One, two, three four, five…he stands…six, he stands over them…seventh shot,” said the family’s attorney James Segall Gutierrez as he counted the deputy’s shots in the surveillance video he played for reporters Friday.

Four bullets hit Cuevas. He died later at a hospital.

“There were no reports at all that night that they were looking for somebody with Jonathan’s description. There were no reports that Jonathan was being violent in any matter,” Gutierrez said.

A Sheriff’s department incident report says the deputy involved, Julio Jove, says he saw Cuevas pull a handgun from his waistband and point it at him. But Cuevas' relatives maintain that the surveillance video doesn’t show that.

“It doesn’t show that he makes a threat to the officer. He’s running. He gets shot in the back and he falls down and the officer stands over him and continues to shoot him,” said Mayra Murrillo, Cuevas’s fiancé and mother of their four-year-old son.

Cuevas’ mother Alicia Alvarez said she began asking neighbors and business workers who witnessed the shooting after it happened.

“Something told me in my heart that something was very wrong because it was totally opposite of what the Sheriff’s homicide [detectives] told us,” Alvarez said.

Steve Whitmore, spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, called the shooting tragic. But said that internal investigators, with oversight from the Office of Independent Review, declared the shooting justifiable.

“This video that was shown today is partial, small part of this story. It is by no means telling the whole story,” he said.
I'd say the story the video shows is clear, the deputy pulls some men over for the "crime" of jaywalking, one of the suspected jaywalkers flees from the deputy immediately, at which point the deputy chases him down and shoots him in the back multiple times, before finally walking over to him and executing him at close range.

According to the deputy, the man allegedly pulled his gun on the deputy and aimed it at him, then rather than shoot him, chose to run away, and he did this all this over an alleged jaywalking violation.

If the deputy thought the man was such a threat, why did he chase him down and shoot him as he fled?

Why didn't the suspect shoot "his" alleged gun even once?

Why were his fingerprints allegedly not found on his gun?

A few days ago we reported on a similar story out of Prince George's County, Maryland where a police officer claimed he was assaulted by a teen, yet the video showed it was the cop who assaulted the teen, he simply lied about what occurred on his police report. In this case, the deputy's only claim to justify this shooting was the man supposedly pulling a gun on him before running away and not shooting, this video strongly appears to contradict that report.

[Correction: The deputy shot at the fleeing man's back six times, and shot at him seven times total, but he only hit him four times. This article was updated September 18th to correct this error.]

75145 I wonder why all the talk about whether the suspect pulled a gun at the officer, or whatever. He was fleeing from the officer, thus disobeyed officer's lawful order, and officer acted to stop him by any means necessary.

This incident is another confirmation of the wisdom of the famous article "When you shoot A cop" by Larken Rose :

"If a cop decides to treat you like livestock, whether he does it “legally” or not, you will usually have only two options: submit, or kill the cop. You can’t resist a cop ”just a little” and get away with it. He will always call in more of his fellow gang members, until you are subdued or dead."

No matter what the offense was, any degree of resistance to the cop, however small, in officer's mind justifies any degree of force to the offender, up to killing him. Like it or not, that's the way 99% of cops see it - that they have not just the right, but the duty to enforce their orders by any means necessary, completely unrelated to what was it about to begin with. Keep that in mind.

67142 The fact is that the man was murdered. Simple. Nevertheless, it is only one of the many symptoms of a far deeper culturally based disease.
This disease, whether we like it or not, is our consumption based existence we live with. It is inherently corrupt, wasteful and destructive. Moreover, the overt greed and disassociation from the public that most appointed or elected officials exhibit is always sliding into territories of uninhibited lust and it never really gets corrected. There is no cure for this disease under our current system. Its hold is total and its propaganda corrupts even the sharpest of minds. However, each individual still holds the one power that is feared by those who perpetuates it. Free thought. We can simply turn off the TV and radio that feeds us what they want us to hear. No more left vs. right, blue team vs. red team, or liberal vs. conservative. Have you noticed that people who think that way are quickly becoming the out of touch fringe. Step back and think about it. Thanks to the internet, we can work to customize our own existence away from the influence of the establishment and reclaim our minds.
As far as I can predict;
When it finally becomes apparent to a majority of people that the establishment powers of the world exist simply to make passage for elites to pollute the earth while facilitating the destruction of anything or anyone who stands in the way, this mental rebellion will begin to spread. The rejection of the old game culture will reach into the minds of even the least likely as new ways of existence are discovered and accepted. But it may not transform peacefully. The powerful entities will go so far as to spawn a world war in order to stem the outflow of control over their empire. They do not want to loose control, but they ultimately will because they are too few. Most human beings are creatures of peace and free thought even if they don't know it. We are in the beginning stages of growing out of a condition of subjugation.

50135 WE ARE ALL BEING FARMED FOR PROFIT. We are all kept ignorant and powerless in order to ensure the worldwide central banking system of 162 private central banks remains in total control of the planet. These people are mutant losers of the worst variety. Anyone who craves power that much has no personal power to speak of.

We are essentially letting the worst of society run society across the planet. Lies, violence, lust for power and greed... these are not the characteristics of real leaders.

17454 This really needs to go to trial. A jury needs to decide what really happened. These so called investigations are a buch of crap.
Even if the guy pulled a gun (which I doubt) he was running away and shot in the back. Then clearly he was definately executed. There can be no justification for shooting someone in the back and then executing then. This cop is a murderer and should be in prison.
May God's judgement be soon and swift.

50141 Um, it says the guy was executed....watch again, the suspect is still moving at the end of the video. Some was executed on the spot. It even says he died later at the hospital. Spin it however you want, the guy took off fleeing a police officer. He could have turned the corner and pulled his gun to shoot the police officer execution style. The officer reacted, and in this case, took a criminal off the streets permenantly. You don't run unless you got something to hide or you have committed some crime. No innocent man died here tonight.

An execution does not require instant death, lethal injection for example takes people over 10 minutes to die, sometimes a lot longer. It was clearly "a coup de grace kill shot," just as his lawyer described.

As to the man running away and turning to shoot the officer "execution style," while that did not happen and is therefor your own completely made up fantasy, "execution style" shootings nonetheless are generally done up close, not while running away. You know, come to think of it, maybe he was an Al-Qaeda terrorist and he was running to go set off a WMD, and the cop shooting him actually saved the entirety of LA! Wow, this justifying police shootings with made up fantasies thing sure is easy!

As to your statement, "You don't run unless you got something to hide or you have committed some crime."

Please tell that to the Jews who fled from Nazi Germany, the Russians who fled from the Soviet Union, the African slaves who fled from their masters in America, and the myriad of other "criminals" who fled from "the law" in their own respective countries. I'm sure they'd love to hear your theories.

67142, i was struck by the singularity thought while reading your post. i read today that facebook has been misfiring, people coming unplugged before they were supposed to. i look at history and see the singularity has been accomplished before; people lining up to be sacrificed for example - the mind control that existed to create the euphoria had to have been in play. people don't just run about sacrificing themselves to sun gods and planets in 'human's nature'. while i agree to the freeing of minds, i think people should take heed, that vectors have been put into place, and, that until you know who/what you're talking to, perhaps, using a finite base for reality would be the safest approach for the time being.


odd thing happened to me today in the form of a jury summons. i was removed without notice from all the (d)'s (r)'s and libs. e-mailing lists, and the state sends me a jury summons. i know better than that, 'linkedin' is a government construct. should i pretend to believe in fake laws and play along? or, claim that it's against my religion to judge others? (i suppose i'd have to think-up a religion for the second scenario). going drunk isn't an option, i don't drink.

Chris, because i'm lazy, and, i don't feel like going thread-by-thread...could you direct me to the article on jury nullification, i'm sure i can find a loophole somewhere in fairy land; one that won't get me shot hopefully.
