I sincerely hope the officer didn't hurt his foot on that idiot's face.

What a waste of low-life degenerate scum. He and his kind are a cancer on society and just need to be "irradiated" if you catch my drift.

I agree. It looks like the Tribune finally got a correct headline. He did kick that fleeing felony suspect before he broke into an innocent family's home to aide his escape. A little ice on the foot and the officer should be o.k.

The guy is a known gang member that ran from police, drove on the wrong side of the street and ran into two cars, the cop had every right to kick him in the head! dumb ass gang members do enough stupid shit that they shoud get NO respect! They live for violence and the media should report on behalf of the good guys once in a while!

Look at this low life loser, I'm sure he deserved to be kicked for one reason or another-no biggie. I wouldn't be surprised if the scumbag turns around and sues El Monte PD. Previous poster was right, they should have shot his d.u.m.b.a.s.s.

Hey knuckleheads, I'm not taking sides with this gang banger, but when that officer swore to perform his duties and put on that badge, he committed himself to a higher duty of care and to behave like a trained professional not a street thug.

I'm sure what I just stated is well beyond the comprehension of most the smart ass punks that are popping off on this forum.

The guy deserved to be kicked. No question. But the officer basically made this guy a millionare. I don't know if it was worth the visual.

RAUL, I found you! You are absolutely right. But I also don't care. Read EL MONTE Resident's comments .. They speak volumes about our county, state and tax dollars. These scum bag gang members cost us a lot of money. Way more than the occasional cop beating lawsuit. All of our property values are going down because of these idiots and our car insurance is going up. Our quality of life sucks because of them. he deserved it! I dont care about the laws. This was a pleasure to watch.

This dumbass almost ran into me during the pursuit in el monte.. This guy ran through a residential area in front of my sons elementary school going about 80 mph. the officer shouldn't have risked getting his foot hurt and should of used his taser on his (Flores) tattooed face. The officer was approaching a wanted parole, he had plenty right to use any force necessary to get that scum bag in custody and away from society.

I will remember that when my taxes go up to pay for his lawsuit. Fun to watch but not too bright on the cops part.
