    Link: Cop Kicks Suspect In Head Like A Football - This chase happened yesterday in LA. Suspect is a longtime, well-known criminal. Question for I-A-B: Justified kick?

    The cop is an an idiot. He knew dang well that there were 2 helicopters following the chase recording everything that went down. The suspect was spread eagle face to the ground with his hands far away from his pockets as possible. Kicking him was just a dumbass move.

    No kick is a justified kick. Almost.

    He ain`t a "Suspect" We just SAW him get out of a Goddamn Car and RUN! He`s a Goddamn Criminal and a Pile of S#IT he deserves to have his Teeth kicked down his throat! Quit SYMPATHIZING with these non-nice individuals! They need to have the poo beat outta them for this kind of crap. Repeatedly if need be until they get the goddamn point. DON`T STEAL OTHER PEOPLES S#IT, DON`T ENDANGER OTHER PEOPLES LIVES and the Cops won`t have a REASON to beat your Stupid Ass!

    Unjustified. From recent conversations here, people know I tend to give police the benefit of the doubt, but the guy was clearly sprawled out on the ground and surrendered.

    I understand the cop probably said "Don`t look at me" which is normal to do - you don`t want to perp watching and waiting for the right moment to make a move - and I understand the cop`s adreneline was probably through the roof, not to mention probably pissed that the guy could have killed innocent people.

    If the cop was uncertain he could approach safely, he should have kept his distance with his gun drawn. But kicking dude square in the face while he was voluntarily prone went too far.

    totally uncalled for. the guy was flat on the ground, not moving at all. the punches and jabs with the stick were uncalled for as well, speedy wasn`t going anywhere, or even trying to at that point. yes he`s a criminal, but he doesn`t deserve to be treated like that when he`s obviously surrendering. this is why people hate cops. people poo themselves over abu ghraib but think this is okay. i don`t get it. and i do understand what happened at abu ghraib was far worse than this and what police do when they batter other people, but isn`t all brutality equally wrong and unacceptable regardless of the extent?

    To SilverThread:
    The police are there to apprehend criminal scum, not dish out their own brand of justice.

    If we all thought like you, we might as well have mob justice. Dispense with the legal system all together!

    The guy isnt fit to be a police officer. I dont dispute the thief probably did deserve it, but there is a line and that cop crossed it!

    thissitesuk - let me easily demonstrate what is wrong with your logic.

    By your logic, in the context of a war, once the other side raises a white flag and surrenders, dropping their guns and coming out of cover - you say go ahead and shoot them because they *were* fighting a little while ago....insane.

    I`m gonna actually have to say justified. Seeing as he was a "longtime, well-known criminal," also evident from the high five by the two cops at the end which seemed to suggest that he was tough to catch, he may have been known or likely to try some tricks when the police came over, and the kick was just to make sure he didn`t. We don`t really know if he was planning on giving up, neither did the cop, he was a wanted criminal who may have been planning on trying some trick, maybe to get the police officer`s gun somehow, and so the kick was to be safe, which is necessary. Police aren`t supposed to take risks, and it`s not like it killed him.

    if you`re stupid enough to run from the cops you`ve gotta expect to get kicked in the face. i mean how stupid do you have to be..... that guy is a leach on society and if he would have killed himself in that car he`d be doing us all a favor. but i can sleep at night knowing that there are good people protecting us from people like him. kicking evil doers in the face... def high five material.

    so he couldn`t have waited 15 seconds while the guy was on the floor with a gun pointed at him to make sure there were enough officers to apprehend him safely?

    "Richard Rodriquez" ,a known Gang Member in the City of El Monte, is the recipient of the kick in this video. On his mug shot you can see a gang tattoo on his upper lip.

    Now through the course of the video he damn near ran into five other motorists while attempting to evade the police in a stolen car. Incidentally there have been five people on here so far lobbing ad hominem attacks my way for being so harsh. He actually managed to run into the sixth car so I`ll let you discuss which of you can take the hit for the team though odds are it will be another innocent bystander.

    If I feel strongly about this it is because of an overwhelming internal urge to protect my society. It makes me furious to see people like this with absolutely no regard at all for the welfare of anyone but themselves. They contribute nothing to society and yet to the great credit of most Americans we continue to try and give them a second chance and in return they kick us in the face.

    Silver, your passion is justifiable, and I`m sure that anyone here with a shred of decency agrees with your anger at the man. Hell, I myself am glad the prick got kicked in the head. But it was still wrong for the cop to do so. The man obviously deserved it, in my opinion, but a cop can NOT act like a judge! Our legal system isn`t some thrown together random jumble, it is a carefully planned system of checks and balances. "Innocent until proven guilty" is very VERY important.

    To SilverThread:

    I dont disagree with your view point. We have exactly the same sort of crap this side of the pond. Some people are not fit to be out in society with the rest of us...but it is still not the job of the police to deal out any sort of punishment.

    My own brother is a policeman so trust me, I`ve heard exactly how stessfull the job is and what sort of crap they put up with, but he, just like I, know that it is not the polices job to deal out the punishment. That is what the court`s are there for. Reasonable force wasnt used here and the police have to be accountable for their actions. Just look at the history books and see what happens when the police decide to start dishing out their version of justice.

    The problem is as much the legal system as well. If this guy was a consistent offender..why the hell was he out anyway?

    "The Maddog

    The problem is as much the legal system as well. If this guy was a consistent offender..why the hell was he out anyway?"

    Spot on. As it happens I work with the Police, I am not a Police officer and have no inclination to be one (Breathe a sigh of relief everyone).

    The Legal system is definitely flawed. A friend of mine, formerly a district attorney, used to say "It`s not Justice, it`s the Law."

    Justice needs to be Swift and exact, it needs to be consistent with the crime and it needs to be administered evenly. The Law does none of these things and yet it`s still the only standard we have by which to provide Justice to our civilization.

    I will make an Honest Wager with ANYONE Here that Richard Rodriguez recommits another felony crime within five years of being freed from this one. He will do it because he knows how emasculated our legal system is and he has no fear of being held to justice because that possibility does not exist any longer.

    Yeh...should`t have kicked him...once they give up you gotta stop pounding on them I think. BUT, if this little crime committing repeat offender Bootard had made ME run after his a@@ AFTER he drove the wrong way down the street (thus being eligible for "Attempted murder with a lethal weapon - the car, for those who don`t get it) and THEN running like the little [email protected] he is, THEN giving up when he was cornered -- I probably would have bounced my night stick on him a few times just to make sure he stayed down - you know the little cretin would try to run again at the first chance he saw to get away!

    OK...I`m being a little sarcastic but I hate these multi-time losers who always think they can get away with it and when they finally give up, they whine because the frustrated, out of breath, overworked, underpaid police officer took a bit of aggression out on them. BooHoo! Get a damn job and quit being stupid - then you don`t have to worry about getting hit!

    No no...my name is uh...definitely not Walter Kovacs. It`s, something else, entirely.

    In seriousness Davy, I`m glad you appreciate my point of view. It`s easy to arbitrarily dismiss an opposing perspective in Archie Bunker fashion and I find that more and more the antiquity of my upbringing sets me morally at odds with my peers.

    It`s the mark of true insight to be able to at least first consider anothers point of view and then make your decision based on your own beliefs so I`ll say thank your for considering my thoughts and looking past my initial vehemence.

    Whether we agree or not, you are a person I recognize as having a valuable opinion.

    To Aero: Wow. Lets try an experiment to test your hypothesis on whether suspect was able "try something", shall we? Sprawl out on the ground with your arms out much like the suspect did in the video. Then, have a friend of yours run up to you with a gun (preferably a real loaded one) aimed at you and see if you can "try something" before your friend is able to shoot you first. The guy surrendered and as such was already at a disadvantage by his prone position on the ground. This isn`t the movies where someone who is flat on their stomach can jump up to a standing position, pull out a knife, and slit your throat in a millisecond. So please.. think before you post

And despite what the kool kids say these days about arguing on the internet being pointless, retard olympics blah blah blah, you`ve actually made me stop and think, hell maybe even change my mind (imagine!) on more than one occassion.

    To SilverThread:
    I totally get the frustration with the legal system.
    I`ve seen someone get away with pre-meditated murder (and get a reduced manslaughter charge) because "it wasnt their fault they`d been drinking and doing drugs"...so yeah. I do belive some people should be taken down hard and fast.

    We all have that innner Batman that wants to seriously kick the teeth in of the a$$holes of the world.

    BUT..the police can not be that power. If allowed to go unchecked, innocent people will suffer and they have. Hell...even the public can`t have that power (Especially when some idiots have been known to burn down paediatrician`s practices because the think its something to do with pedos).

    I don`t have the answer to fix it all..but better politicians and certainly a better legal and punishment system are heavily involved!

    @Dus-Sn: wow, sorry, just throwing out ideas. The police officer can only shoot as a last resort, I believe, so it`s not like he would shoot at the slightest movement, especially if someone is in that position without a weapon. I`m pretty sure that guy would be unsuccessful at attempting to wrestle the cop`s gun from him, but that doesn`t mean he wouldn`t try anyway, hence the kick to the head.

    However, the other person who addressed my post (it`s on another page so I don`t know the name) did bring up a good point that he could have just waited for the other police officers to arrive, therefore eliminating most of the need for the kick, but I still don`t see it as too much somehow. Like I said before, it would hurt a lot I`m sure but he`ll probably be fine, and the cop was also probably pretty darn angry at the criminal and so had a tough time controlling his anger. So even if it isn`t justified, it`s still understandable.

We DID see the suspect commit more than one crime, (Hit and run, along with Fleeing a Police Officer) so those of you screaming "Innocent until proven guilty" need to realize that yes, that IS the way it`s supposed to be, but when you`re guilty, you`re guilty.

    The cop really wasn`t really justified in kicking the suspect in the head, but I understand why it went down that way.

    Here`s a photo of the perp...

    There`s no justifying the kick, but I can also understand how humans are basically dumb animals and when the adrenaline is pumping and the criminal you`re chasing as put innocent people as well as your co-workers in harm, the body goes into auto-pilot mode.

    Did the jagweed deserve to get kicked in the head, hell yeah. But the cop should`ve acted like a professional. And if the cops didn`t high-five afterward, I`d be more understanding, but celebrating is just retarded.

    @davymid " just has... conservative leanings."

    No, Davy. Police violating people`s rights is not a conservative principle. It`s just leftist slander. You need to learn to be a little more tolerant of those who disagree with you.

    I`m actually a libertarian, so I have plenty of disagreements with conservatives, but I don`t have to smear them, and neither do you. Grow up a little.

    Hey Silverthread, forgive me if I seemed like I am flaming you. I didn`t mean to sound that way. While, I agree with you that the punk deserved it, calling it justified wasn`t right. I also agree with you that our justice system is very flawed. I don`t, however, think that there is currently a better system out there. Instant justice to easily opens the door to racism, mistaken identity and false charges as proved over and over in the days of the vigilante back in the 19th century. The officers job was to apprehend the "suspect". His offenses, however obvious, were not yet proven in a court of law. Once this video is played, if admitted in court, will put the prick away. But that is the job of the Judge, jury and prosecuting attorney. NOT the cop. Is it a termination worthy offense? Probably not, but definatly worth an investigation and maybe a suspension or other such disiplinary action. (Please forgive my crappy spelling.)

    I do agree that this maybe was a little too much on the cops side...However i am willing to completely look over it. This guy ran from the law, was very careless in what he did, and he had no concern for the everyday normal civilians who are trying to live their lives. So, a kick in the head to me is well deserved. (This is the very first one posted where I didn`t side against the cop.)

    I don`t think kicking this miscreant in the head was a good thing. Why ? Because that kick is going to end up getting the charges dropped on this repeat offender. Not only that, But after he`s set free, It will embolden him to steal cars again thinking he can`t be touched.

    The high five at the end is ironic, Considering that this will end up as anything but a win for the cops.

    - I can tell by the syntax that you are educated, though clearly not in English, as in Major, but nor am I. I ask you something with the utmost intention of respect and sympathy with your view - what crime did the police officer add to this criminal`s list of chargesr by kicking him in the face?

    How was justice served?

    Are you saying that it is better that the criminal be kicked in the face ONCE rather than his appreshension be ruled constitutional in light of all the circumstances????

    Do you not see how it would have been better if this individual poilce officer had not given this criminal a very solid basis under which to challenge his criminal apprehension?
    Besides the immediate retribution of a police officer dishing out punishment absent trial, what did this police officer`s actions help?????

    If anything, did not this police officer`s actions taint the

    Thank you for your non-intelligible response.

    Perhaps your own anti-Americanism read far too much into what I said - there is a substantial difference between Canadian Federal Law (Ex: Gay Marriage is Legal under Canadaian Federal Law - A GOOD THING), and American Federal law.

    Its farcical when I know I`m right about US federal law - go ahead and argue, but be happy when I represent you getting kicked in the face during a habeus petion in federal court challenging a criminal conviction based on a state law conviction that ignored you getting kicked in the face by a state police officer who brutilized you while you were in the prone position....

    People give lawyers too much crap - defending the law doesn`t mean I MADE IT....

    MechBFP - I sympathize with you, as there is a huge differnce between what someone deserves, and what our constitution provides to all citizens (for good reason).

    Wow, America vs Canada, hasn`t this turned out to be a nice thread. goaliejerry please don`t blame any comments one way or the other based on anyone being American, Canadian and other, I`ll admit there are differences in priorities here, and cops go unpunished for just about everything, but at the same time, so do any criminals that matter. Personally I am torn on the subject. At first I figured the cop was in the wrong completely, but then read the comments and found out who the "victum" was and was a bit swayed. I would say I believe the cop was wrong, but at the same time the guy deserved it. In Canada the kick would probably investigated by this officer`s peers, deemed nessacary, and would have no affect on the charges. I would assume from your arguement about the possibility of the case being thrown out due to this means the biggest difference between Canada and America on this subject is that police in America would be willing to admit one of their own screwed up.

    Lets get this one thing straight: The guy deserved to be kicked in the face, but the cop didn`t have the right to do it. not when he surrendered like that.
    I mean, seriously, just wait till you get him in the back of the car, ya know? out of sight of the chopper? also, instead of a face kick, try an elbow drop to the spine. it is much more inconspicuous, and still hurts like bitch.

    Ok wise guys, when you are approaching a known violent criminal let`s see if you`re going to subdue him gently or if you`re going to take no chances and give him a knock upside the head or something.

    Do you know how easy it would have been for the suspect to pull out a knife or a gun as the cop was approaching him?

    Although I agree with most mrwnt`s comment, I disagree that giving him the kick was necessary in this situation. If you look, the suspect was on the ground with arms out(the key), the cop had the proper position. The cop could have waited for backup and stood over the suspect with the gun over him without having to kick him in the head. Now the cop was probably pissed off because of the suspects history and the dangerous chase. So he decided to take a shot at the suspect. Only problem is that there has been a wave of police brutality vids sweeping the web and he is adding momentum to the wave.

    It`s not the police officers job to punish him. That`s why there are courts and jails. That is why it`s not justified.

    "It`s not the police officers job to punish him. That`s why there are courts and jails. That is why it`s not justified."

    Completely hit the nail on the head there mate. You cannot allow the police to behave in this way. It doesn`t matter how in the wrong the criminal was, it is an officers duty to behave responsibly.

    No. Violence should only be used to prevent more harmful violence from occurring. The suspect was clearly attempting to co-operate. The officer merely exacerbated the situation and made himself look like a hormonal high school bully.

    lol @ comments. It`s not like they picked some guy off the street and kicked him in the head. This guy put thousands of innocent lives at danger, and we`re complaining that he got kicked in the head? I guess we`re all liberal until some gang member carjacks us at gunpoint, or our kid gets nearly beaten to death at school because he wore a red hat. And then you`d be screaming for 7-cent justice to the back of his head.

    That`s what happens when you lead police on a high speed adrenaline pumping chase where you put innocent peoples lives at stake. If you think that`s bad you should see some Russian police videos, makes this one look mild.

    Even though this man is a criminal and broke the law, he also surrendered when he realized he was done. So I think the kick was uncalled for, and undeserved. The criminal was on the ground with his hands over his head, it wasn`t like he was going to get up in two seconds to hurt the cop in any way. And the second cop that came over and punched the hell out of the guy, that was also uncalled for. This makes me hate cops even more than I already do.

    The criminal took the police on a probable high speed chase and even booked it after he got out of the car in hopes of escaping and forcing the police to exert extreme amounts of force and police power in order to catch him. They brought out the K9 unit, probably several different squad cars, and a good amount of police officers,all while endangering the community around them whilst trying to catch this man.

    Wouldn`t you be pissed?

    When some kid steals my wallet and runs around my house breaking crap and disrespecting my property, and then gives up because he knows that I`m going to catch him, I don`t just take my wallet and leave.

    I`m gonna beat the sh*t out of that kid.

    Despite what you guys may want from police officers, they`re still human beings, and are going to act accordingly.

    I`m a cop in AZ, and I cringe every time I see this $h*t. Dude gave up, game over. I`ve been in chases, and I know the adrenaline gets pretty overwhelming, but the $h*tbag still has rights, and there is no such thing as a "free kick" just because he made them chase him.

    This kind of thing embarrasses me, and it makes my job a he11 of a lot harder in the future. Police in general have had to go a long way to try to be viewed as professionals, and knuckleheads like these (the officers) are setting us back 40 years.

    Oh, by the way. The idiot officer who threw that kick just made the a$$h*le gangbanger a millionaire. Nice.

    Whether or not we would have done the same is irrelevant. Cops are supposed to be able to control themselves, and not attack people who have submitted themselves peacefully to be taken into custody. The criminal will pay for his running from police and putting the public at risk in court. It`s not the policeman`s job to punish the man.

    F-em. Run from the cops and get kicked in the head. He`s lucky that`s all he got. You`re right, they are the police and I expect them to be held to a higher standard, which I define for them as a citizen of my municipality. And I expect them to kick the douche in the head.

    LOL I like how the guy said he got kicked in the shoulder. Dude must be blind.

    I am gonna go with not justified. It doesn`t matter if the guy deserved it or not. There is a reason we have trials. Police are supposed to apprehend suspects using no more violence than is necessary.
