My heart does not bleed for Gonzalez. I am glad that no one else was hurt. The chase described above - caused by him - was terrifyingly dangerous, criminal & could have had more tragic results.

This case calls out for a plea deal of some kind. Was none offered? If it was, why did the perp not accept it? Sounds like the DA is not looking for prison time.

This case has taught be NEVER to believe everything you read. If all the facts were above, you would see more support for Mr. Gonzalez.

I know this clown. He is a violent criminal. He drove at the cops trying to run them down. Wrong move stupid nasty criminal man. The cops defended themselves . He should have stopped and surrendered. He didn't! He got was he got because he was a violent hitbag. Get him a wheelchair and park him on the corner waving at his old gang buddies.

Another stupid bad guy. Should have given up. His bad guys days are over. Lesson learned.. stop and surrender. He would not be in his messed up life now if he just did that. A gang banger immobilized for good.

I told him not to do that before. He always laughed at me. Too bad he did not listen.
