El Centro, California — The El Centro Police Department (ECPD) released body camera footage of an officer-involved shooting that resulted in the death of 50-year-old Manuel Verdugo on December 29, 2019. The release of the footage comes less than a month after Manuel Verdugo’s daughter, filed a lawsuit demanding the release of bodycam footage from officers. During this incident, officers responded to calls about a shirtless man in the middle of traffic armed with stolen knives and threatening violence. When officers arrived, the suspect charged at ECPD officers who initially fired less-lethal, beanbag rounds to stop him. As the beanbag rounds were ineffective, the shooting occurred as the suspect continued to charge toward the retreating officer with the knives still in his hands. Verdugo was on active parole and was a registered sex offender when this incident occurred. He has prior felony convictions for the following crimes: forcible rape, corporal injury to spouse/cohabitant, willful cruelty to a child It (11-month old girl), spousal abuse/battery, vandalism, forgery, and criminal threats with the intent to terrorize with a weapon.

  1. How much you wanna bet someone is going to say “wHy DiDnt THey JuST shOoT hiS LEgs” lmao people who say that are retarded and know nothing about the human anatomy or firearms

  2. Could they have used pepper spray? Ya. Could they have tried a taser? Maybe

    Did they just save taxpayers a million dollars + to incarcerate a seriously mentally ill violent felon for most of his life? Yep they sure did. Just sayin.

  3. He has prior felony convictions for the following crimes: forcible rape, corporal injury to spouse/cohabitant, willful cruelty to a child It (11-month old girl), spousal abuse/battery, vandalism, forgery, and criminal threats with the intent to terrorize with a weapon.

    Well now. He's FINALLY where he deserves to be.

  4. Why do they have to unload a mag into him like shot him 2 times I’m sure it would stop him if not then shoot him again like seriously I respect cops but I feel their training makes them very trigger happy

  5. Thousands of Mexicans are crossing the border to find themselves in American Paradise. But this man realized that the United States is not Paradise, and decided to commit suicide.

  6. Why the fuck would the cops still shoot him after he's down? 1 or 2 bullets are more than enough to get him down and not want to do anything else. these guys have truly executed him.

  7. Many people are quick to blame police officers for their responses to mental health patients, yet IMO, the behavioral health "specialists" are more at fault for misdiagnosis and signing-off on these individuals as being "safe" to release back into the population.

  8. A situation like this is crap for all. A cry for help unheard. A lifetime of bad to worse decisions. Officers who have to live with flashbacks of shooting someone. So, I have 2 questions despite clear justification for lethal use of force: What about creative thinking? I see another possible weapon here- the cops cruiser he was close enough to hit him without killing him. Or, OC spray. Those canisters have quite a range on them as we've seen in the riot vids.
