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."

I don’t know where this exception was written into the Constitution. Can you point it out to me?

I’m not a member of a violent gang, and I haven’t run from the Cops and no one has kicked me in the head all day.

I doubt he’ll need a place to work once he gets finished suing the city. Where do the the citizens send the “Thank you for wasting our tax dollars so you can get your kicks in” card? (And lest you think I’m naive to crime cop hater, I live in a top 10 violent crime rate city with immediate family members on the police force.)

We’d all be better off if that POS just disappeared. But thanks to this cop who could not control himself, he’ll get millions to buy God knows how many more guns and drugs for him and his buddies.

Remember what happened in the Rodney King case? Officers in cases like this now face multiple jeopardy in effect. (Spelled: Federal civil rights charges.) Hey you take a chink out of the Constitution here, it’s easier to justify taking a chink out of it there too.

When do we make instant karma the law of the land?

You’re Jewish aren’t you. Did God give Moses a big High Five when he slew the tormentor of the Hebrew slave? Those forty years in the desert that he got instead were terribly unfair to Moses don’t you think?

If I were a cop on the scene, I not only would have planted my steel-toed boot into this gangbanger’s skullcap, I would have let the German Shepard take a few hunks out of him too. At lest when he gets to Pelican Bay, he could spend a few days in the infirmary.

I’ve read the bible too. Front to back. How can you make an accusation that I did read it straight. “Straight” according to who? You? Who named you the Grand Pooba of the many interpretations of the Bible?

Who made you God’s spokesperson.

You did, PAL. In your mind, which is not based in reality.

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

Good, it'll give some thug with a badge an aiming point if or when such a person arbitrarily decides YOU are the “cockroach”. Look up the word ‘arbitrary’ and try to apply it to law and order, genius.

Action outside of the Law under color of law is arbitrary, capricious and utterly unAmerican. Your outrage at the evil these “cockroaches” get up to does not confer moral authority upon an argument that the law should be discarded AT THE WHIM OF ONE OF IT'S OFFICERS. That's as stupid, un American and illogical as it gets. I despise an act of arbritrary punishment on the part of a police officer as much I do the savagerys of savages BOTH are attacks on law and order. The fact that you think your rage is justifacation fo illegal and unconstitutional action is a great indication that YOU need to THINK a little more. God gave you a brain for a reason, pal. And Jesus Christ Almighty in Heaven help you if I am ever someday the "cockroach" in your crosshairs.

Dunno when Sgt. Friday (or is that Barney Fife?) will be back from his shift to see this, but what the hey.

Fornicalia prolly shucked this off because they are so cash strapped they can’t even prosecute some of the gang bangers they catch and if they do they can’t figure out a place to put them with Uncle Sam on their backs too about the prisons. Prolly figured it would get kicked upstairs to the Feds anyhow; why pay four or five times out of an empty pocket when they only have to pay twice? This bum swearing vengeance as he is caught is hardly a sympathetic figure, however it is a well proven principle that hard cases make bad law and this looks like no exception.

Speaking of freedom, rights, and the Constitution...I’d love to see the look on the faces of all the leftists in this thread if a member of a racist criminal gang performed these actions with a willful disregard for the safety of the citizens of Philadelphia, circa 1778. Yeah, yeah...I know, they didn’t have cars then. Ooh, you win. My analogy is destroyed.

Jefferson would have gotten him in a full nelson while Washington pounded the s out of him. And after the FF’s were done, the rest of the men around the scene would have had a turn. If there was anything left other than a smear, they’d have had him in the stocks for a year or two. Then they would probably have executed him. Constitutional rights...lol. You got a right to be treated like an asshole when you act like an asshole...how about that right?

Your tears are delicious. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
