Gangbanger's Extreme Makeover: From Criminal to Portrait of Respectability


Photo: Law Offices of Nick Pacheco

Gang member Richard Rodriguez fled on foot after a car chase, surrendered and subsequently got himself kicked in the head by an El Monte police officer (Don't remember this? LAist blog has the video clip). And now, he's suing for $5 million.

To better his chances in court, Richard's lawyer Nick Pacheco will perform what we'll call a "Gangbanger's Extreme Makeover":

... the attorney said his heavily tattooed client will be getting an extreme makeover in time for a trial, complete with a thick Tom Selleck mustache -- think "Magnum P.I." -- to cover the name of his street gang, which is inked on his upper lip. Richard Rodriguez will also grow hair to cover the tattoos on his shaved head. And he'll wear a nice, conservative suit. [...]

In the booking photo, Rodriguez's head is shaved, and the name of his gang hangs over his lip. Tattoos climb his neck. In the "after" rendition, he's wearing a black suit with a metallic gray tie, neatly combed hair and a lush mustache.

"People get past looks when you put on a suit and your hair is grown," Pacheco said.

He ran from police, endangering so many people along the chase, and is a gang member who does not respect the norms of society.

He should have been shot and killed right there on the spot rather that allowed to let the liberal-inspired U.S. justice system suck one ounce of resources from the American taxpayers to pay for ANY judicial logistics regarding this "man."

He was proven guilty when he ran from police and by having such tattoos. Someone could have been killed in the vehicle pursuit. He is a gang member and will Never contribute to society in any way. I don't mind when gang members kill Other fellow gang members, but when someone who has such utter disrespect for society puts well-to-do non-gang civilians at risk, that person deserves no such privileged treatment.

A country is only as strong as its justice system. When that system fails, the country may go under.
