Well, I sure am glad the family of Cuevas is demanding an investigation. Otherwise there probably wouldn't be any followup on this. Sheesh!

Based on the video alone, it does appear to be just a tragic accident. I am left wondering why the guy came out like that, probably just scared from just getting robbed I am sure but he sure did come flying through the door.

Tripwire, I agree. Unfortunately, that is no consolation to the family or the officer. I'm sure he feels horrible about the accident.
