What is really going on with our law enforcement???? Aren't they here to serve and protect???/ what was the officers reasoning for stopping the man in the fist place??? It seems to me more like a gaming incident rather then some officer doing his job... Really how fast was the officer going to kill a man on the scene??? Angel couldn't of out run his car for he was on a bike.. It's a shame these officers are taking so much athurity to their heads that they even get away with murder.

I know this man he was a family man cops are crooked and they are out for their own justice and not the law my heart goes out to toscano family the cop needs to do time himself because if it had been someone else to run him over they would be in jail so why not the cop who did it. like the saying goes you do the crime he need to do the time there is a lot of cops that makes things up I know this for fact I think they need to carry recorders and video cams. My love goes out to the toscano family. god be with you all

Murders, rapist, thieves,etc. get there day in court. My brother rides off on a bicycle and has Fresno P.D. police unit pool a pit maneuver on him running him over, dragging him under it 60 feet killing him. You were a good man Angel and didn't deserve what happened to you. You'll always be remembered for the great smile you had for everyone that met you. You were my little brother and I wish I had told you, how much I looked up to you. R.I.P. I LOVE YOU. - Eric

he didn't deserve to die. but why run if you have nothing to hide? i'm sure this isn't Angel's first run in with the law. and it take's more to be a family man then just having kids.when was/has angel ever had a job and took care of all them kids? never not as long as i have known him.but all that makes a nice spin for a lawsuit..

has there been any disciplinary action taken on the cop? He should be facing manslaughter charges.

The function, of, that police action,Those interventions in Central America and the Middle East,The function is system sustaining.It is to maintain that overall system.And you don't look at the particular cost.I can demonstrate to you that every single bank robbery,That in every single case practically, the cost of the police was more then the actual money that the robbers took from the bank.Does that mean, oh you see?There's really no economic interest involved in it.They're not protecting the banks!The police are just doing this because they're on a power trip, or they're macho, or uh they're control freaks.That's why they do it. No! Of course it's an economic, of course they're defending the banks.Of course, because if they didn't stop that bank robbery, regardless of the cost,This could jeopardize the entire banking system.You see, there are people who believe that the function of the police is to fight crime.And that's not true, the function of the police is social control, and protection of property

ABC/30 does the original story but never does a follow up to let us know what, if any disciplinary action was given to the killer that drove he car. Are thy even afraid to question Fresno P. D.'s tactics? This happens all of the time. The cops do whatever they want and it gets swept under the rug. They are out o control!

Why does it matter ? The point is they killed my dad for no reason.! So take your bs else where. When he was on that bicycle they didnt know who the hell he was. It could of been the pastor of a church or the chief of police, Mr. Jerry Dier himself ! My dad did what he could to provide for his family! He went out of his way.. alot ! So Keep your comments to your fuhknself! Id rather not hear them.. ron.
