Manuel Flores rams a Bernalillo County NM, deputy police car and is shot to death


Manuel Flores, 28 rams a Bernalillo County New Mexico, deputy police car and is shot to death. Apparently he was having an argument with his girl friend at a gas station and rammed her car while also trying run her over.

That is when deputy Sam Rodriguez showed up and was rammed by the suspect. He rammed him once and fled then came back and rammed the deputy again. That is when deputy who was trapped in his vehicle fired two rounds at the suspect.

  • Nobody likes Monday morning Quarterbacking! The Suspect was using deadly force when he rammed the Deputy authorizing deadly force but only at the time he was ramming or in the process of ramming the Deputy! Clearly the suspect is seen exiting the vehicle with his hands held up, I watched over and over and could not see a weapon in his hands. True the Deputy was trapped and could have feared for his life? However, it is my opinion after viewing the suspect with hands held high in clear view stepping away from the Deputy’s vehicle that he did not constitute deadly force at that moment which nullify’s the Deputy’s use of deadly force! I’m glad the Deputy was not killed.

  • Oh my God I was shocked the first time when he struck the cruiser. But for him to come back and ram it for the second time, you can tell he was out to hurt the officer. The officer had every right in shooting this person. I watched the video twice and the perpetrator was trying to seriously hurt or even kill this officer.
