Video of the 2018 shooting death of 33-year-old Laudemer Atienza Arboleda by a Danville deputy has been released.

A sheriff's dashcam video, shows Contra Costa Costa County Sheriff's Deputy Andrew Hall firing multiple times at the Newark man who was fleeing from police in a silver sedan.

The incident began about 11 a.m. on Nov. 3, 2018 when the Danville Police Department was notified of a suspicious person near Cottage Lane and Laurel Drive, next to Interstate Highway 680 near downtown. The citizen reported seeing a man exit his vehicle, walk toward several homes in that area with bags in his hands, go back to his car and circle the neighborhood.

Police soon found the man, later identified as Arboleda, who ignored officers' commands to stop, according to investigators.

The dashcam video shows Arboleda fleeing in his car, leading officers on a short pursuit. He drove a few blocks to the intersection of Front Street and Diablo Road, which is where Hall fired on him. Arboleda was struck and was taken to the San Ramon Regional Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Arboleda's family filed a claim against the Town of Danville and the county, alleging the fatal shooting was based on race. Arboleda was Filipino.

The sheriff's office denied the allegation."This is not about race. This is about a dangerous and reckless person trying to run down and murder a police officer. Once all investigations are completed, we look forward to sharing the full details with the public," Sheriff-Coroner David O. Livingston said in the weeks following the shooting.

Not that I'm defending that piece of shit that died, but - I see a pattern developing where cops will run out in front of a car and then claim the person was trying to run them down just so they can kill the fucker. Skipping due process is what will kill America.

"Arboleda's family filed a claim against the Town of Danville and the county, alleging the fatal shooting was based on race." Ah, where have we heard THIS steaming pile of CNN before? Hmm?

Racially motivated? Why ? - Are the corpse's family claiming that all Filipions are feral thugs that cannot follow instructions to STOP ?

That idiot was putting other lives at risk plus he shouldn't be doing shit to put himself in that situation. You'd be the first one to shit his pants if they would have jussf t let him keep driving and he killed a love one. Being Democrat should be recognized as a mental illness.

The shooting was based on a criminal fleeing not race.

The cops did that to a guy in front of my house in a certain large Murican city one time. He got away though. Then they blocked off the street and sidewalks for a few hours (to collect their shell casings?) and there were all these federal marshals in green uniforms and full tactical gear looking like they just walked off a battlefield in Iraq hanging out in the street for a while afterwards. It seemed a bit overkill. One cop came into our house and asked us to give a statement on what we had seen or heard. I said that I heard a rapidly approaching car and two gun shots. The city ordered my landlord to kick me out not long afterwards, lol.

Another magdump in an intersection with other cars. Fucker would not have been in danger if he stayed in the fucking car till the beaner was wedged in or incapacitated. Trade some paint stop the fucker then magdump somewhere not in an intersection....

I know I’m going to get some shit but I don’t see a reason why the cop didn’t just step aside to make his safe space a little more comfortable. Instead of moving his car to block the guy he put himself in a position to kill somebody, almost shot his cop buddy, and was ready to shoot again in the direction of more innocent people. This was more bullshit from a trigger happy cop.
