Cop kicks man in head after lengthy car chase through L.A.






After more than ten minutes of leading police on a pursuit through city streets in Los Angeles this afternoon, a suspect jumped out of his car and started running through yards until he reached a dead end against a fenced wall.

The suspect then laid himself down on the ground with his arms spread to allow himself to be arrested. An El Monte police officer then ran up him and kicked him hard in the head, leaving the suspect motionless.

And another officer runs up and starts jabbing the suspect in the ribs with his nightstick.

The officers then high-five each other. It was all caught on a news video from a hovering helicopter.

Fast forward to 10:25 to see the action.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the suspect was a gang member who had just been released from prison. He was transported to a hospital.

Carlson identified the suspect as Richard Rodriguez, 23, of El Monte. He said Rodriguez is a member of the El Monte Flores street gang and had been released from state prison in January. He was wanted for a parole violation, but it’s unclear if that led to the chase.

City News Service of Los Angeles, which provides syndicated content to various news organizations around the country, did not mention the kick nor the jab to the ribs for whatever reason.

While it appears that the suspect is no angel and most likely has a violent history and probably deserves to be thrown back in prison, the officer showed he is hardly any different than your typical gangbanger.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
