LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County prosecutors have decided no charges will be filed against a suburban police officer who kicked a surrendering suspect in the head after a dangerous car chase.

Rodriguez, a parolee heavily covered in gang tattoos, was lying face-down on the ground during the May 13 incident, which was broadcast by a TV news helicopter. After four officers converged on Rodriguez, two of them did a "high five."

Violent police moves are common after car chases. The usual rationale given is that they feared the person was dangerous.

There could still be a lawsuit. Civil charges are easier to prove than criminal ones.

Went to a dog demo a few years back, intended to show us the difference between the attack training and the hold in place training. The officer playing the suspect role had the arm pad on for the first segment, then failed to remove it. When the dog was given the ‘hold’ command, you could almost hear it say, “well, clearly that’s the wrong command ‘cause the guy still has the sleeve on”. The dog also apparently concluded he was being asked to do it again because he hadn’t worked hard enough the first time. The dog raced across the parking lot, launched himself into the air about ten feet from the ‘suspect’ and just flattened him. Pretty funny stuff.

As the cop approached, the cockroach can clearly be seen yelling, “I will have your family killed.”
I thought the cop showed remarkable restraint.

I agree. And it is equally typical but shameful that conservatism is equated on this board with such abuse of police powers.

You don't know what shameful means.

Shameful to me is watching a 6 year old girl suck in her last breath after being caught by a stay bullet, fired by cockroaches like the one above, that decided to shoot up a neighborhood, just to show his cockroach friends how bad he is.

Shameful to me means pulling the lifeless bodies of your wife and kids out of their busted up vehicle after cockroaches like this decide to drive 100 mph through your neighborhood, to avoid going to jail for raping a 12 year old.

I can see you've spent little time in the senseless murder districts. You need to get out more slick.

I always get accused by leftist and people like you of being insensitive to brutal, criminal murderers, organized gangsters, violent career criminals and others that routinely kill, rob, terrorize and rape innocent people.

I wear the scorn of people like you as a badge of honor.

Yeah, I knew what shameful statists would come to this thread. They think they are conservatives when in fact they are the opposite. They favor government abuse of people.

“They favor government abuse of people.”

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The people? LOL!

You’re implying this was just an innocent young man that wasn’t endangering everyone on the streets, that didn’t have a violent criminal record as long as your leg, that wouldn’t stomp you into the ground for beer money...lol

What a knee slapper!

I feel like I’m at ACLU meeting on sensitivity..

I’m getting that GD monkey movie feeling again....

Sorry a person laying on the ground arms out is in fact not endangering anyone around them. But an Obama statist like you probably does not understand that.

Yeah you certainly have revealed whose team you are on, Obama's, the Iranian regime etc. Why aren't you on DU or some other statist website?

Yep, went into many a house where the kids had to sleep in the bathtub to avoid getting shot during drivebys...where kids had never been allowed to play outside their entire young lives due to the street punks who ruled the street. Too many memories to mention...like a two year old who was shot and killed by gang thugs after her parents made a wrong turn into the wrong hood. Or the thug who proclaimed that little old ladies are just holding their SS checks temporarily until he decidees to come and snatch them.

There is a reason, boys and girls, that this government was conceived with a separation of powers.

The case may have been dropped because popular sentiment would have leaned towards jury nullification.
