    Is This Police Brutality?

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMOrNDs37ZA&feature=topvideos"]YouTube - Police Chase Suspect Kicked In The Head By El Monte Police Officers on 5/13/2009 (Police Brutality)[/ame]

    This was a ten minute police chase in El Monte earlier this week.

    A lot of people are claiming it's another case of police brutality (at the end, with the subduing of the criminal).

    What do you guys think?

    The suspect was lying face down in the dirt. That kick is an assault with intent to injure.

    That cop needs to lose his badge and spend 5 years in general population thinking about where he would be if he had not assaulted the suspect.

    That cop is scum.

    I agree. The man was down and submissive.

    We allow the police to get away with too much in the name of police safety. What about the safety of the people?

    Yes, the guy broke the law and then ran from them. But then he gave up and laid down. The kick was way over the top.

    I called the El Monte police department and inquired about this case.

    The badged thug responsible for this attack is still on active duty. He isn't on patrol (he's riding a desk) but he is still on duty being paid to work even after he committed felony assault on a subdued suspect.

    That cop is a disgrace to the uniform and he needs to be fired and charged with a crime.

    I quite agree. That cop needs to spend 5 years in jail for what he did.

    I'd like to see somebody genuinely TRY to justify this inappropriate act of assault.

    This is definitely police brutality, no doubt at all.

    I spent a couple of years as an LEO and this is completely unacceptable.

    It is not the job of an officer to sit in judgement or punish an offender who surrenders.

    Yes it was assault. The officer dhould be fired and there should be some sort of trial for that. This is just another case of a cop out of control. It seems that a badge or some authority goes to peoples heads.

    He should be sitting behind bars and seeing an anger management counselor.
