Cop Runs Over 15yo Boy, Leaves Car On for 10 Minutes as He ‘Burned Alive’

Temple, TX — In a disturbing case out of Temple, Texas, attorneys on behalf of a teenager have filed an excessive force lawsuit against the Temple Police Department. The teen was run over by police and left trapped under the car as the heat from the engine burned him alive for 10 minutes.

According to the lawsuit, Kaylem Gonzalez, 15, was walking away from his home on January 14, 2015, when he was struck by a Temple police car. The officer in the car, according to the lawsuit, left him trapped under it, with the engine running.

For 10 minutes the 15-year-old boy was burned all over his body. He suffered multiple third-degree burns to his torso, thighs, and pelvis, including his genitals, caused by the hot engine.

“(The victim) was under the middle of the vehicle face up,” the lawsuit petition says. “Emergency workers smelled the burning flesh, but no one made efforts to move the car or turn off the engine,” the suit says. “He was unable to flee or do anything. He was being burned alive.”

Gonzalez is suing for medical expenses, physical pain, mental anguish, disfigurement and physical impairment.

Neither of the officers involved in the incident, Bret McCune and Carmen DeCruz, have faced any discipline as they claimed it was not intentional.

The Temple Police Department stated in a Facebook post that “the officer stopped his patrol vehicle and began a search of the area in an attempt to find the second suspect. As he exited his car, the officer discovered the second suspect had become trapped under the patrol vehicle. Temple Fire and Rescue came to the scene and lifted the patrol vehicle off the suspect, and he was transported to Scott and White Hospital for treatment.”

Apparently, police want us to believe that the officer had no idea he’d run over a teenager until after he got out of his car. And, instead of turning the car off to stop the heat, he allowed it to continue to run.

“No reasonable officer would have left the vehicle on while it was pinning a suspect,” the lawsuit read.

According to the Robert Ranco, the boy’s attorney, Gonzalez was a suspect in a burglary. However, Ranco said that case had been settled but did not provide details.

He told the Daily Telegraph that although Gonzalez had been “involved in some malfeasance,” that should not be a factor in the brutality suit.

“This case is particularly egregious and horrifying due to the nature of the injuries and the callousness of the officers’ behavior at the scene,” Ranco said. “How can you run over a kid, then leave him under the car — refusing to move the vehicle off of him or even turn the car off — while the child’s flesh is burning underneath the engine for more than ten minutes?”

    My limbs are literally tingling from the horror and disgust of this story! Yet again, Blue Privilege reigns supreme. Try to imagine what would have happened to one of us if we’d run over someone and left them trapped under our car to roast alive simply because we couldn’t even be arsed to turn off the engine!

        Your comment is intelligible. Please proofread before you post.

          You too, dear… since I’m sure you meant unintelligible. It’s irrelevant either way, as he won’t be posting here anymore.

            The sad thing is I actually did proofread that! Before I get on my high horse and censure others, I should remember that I too am still but a child learning!

            Absolutely – something my students remind me of every day!

    • Hugh Culliton

      Is is getting worse or was it always this bad and only recently have we had the ability to document it? I can’t help but think such abuse is getting worse.

      • The Cat’s Vagina

        Actually, I think it only seems that way because now we can actually SEE it for ourselves, instead of just taking every cop’s word for what happened. I’d even go as far as to theorize that it used to be a LOT worse, before we had cameras anywhere and before ANYONE had the audacity to suggest (in public) that black people don’t deserve to be treated like animals.

        • Hugh Culliton

          Yet, after reading “Rise of the Warrior Cop,” I do think police aggression is also increasing. Regardless, cooking kids with cop cars is, I’m sure everyone who counts agrees, is not the done thing.

          • Hugh Culliton

            The victim was a teenager – not a criminal.

          • mikehammack

            His callousness is unwarranted but how does that make sense to you? So teenagers cannot be criminals in your eyes?

          • Hugh Culliton

            Of course not, but in this case, the victim was just a teenager – he wasn’t a criminal. At worst the kid was apparently a suspect, accused of a crime – not convicted. Last Time I checked, there was a big difference between the two. Regardless, no one needs to be treated that horrifically.

      • Hugh Culliton

        The kid was pinned under a car, being burned because the cop wouldn’t shut off the engine – and you blame the kid for that, and then you call it justice?

        Dude: you’re fucked-up! I really hope that no one has ever trusted you to be alone with a child.

  • doucyet

    Two year old click bait…………

    When the boy was found under the car it then became a rescue effort, moving the vehicle may have caused his death! The fire department was able to save the boys life in this case.

    It is alleged (apparently is the word used) that the car was left running, not proven in court yet. If they did, that was negligent for sure!

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      How else would the kid have gotten third-degree burns all over the front of his body if they hadn’t left the engine running? If they’d turned it off, he would have suffered second-degree blistering at most.

      • iMRightNURNot

        BS you MORON

        • Andropov

          Yeah, we all know the continued application of heat and the worsening of burns have no causal relationship!

      • doucyet

        Have you ever leaned up against a almost red hot catalytic converter? How about an exhaust pipe that’s two feet from the manifold? You do understand a hot converter will set dry grass on fire right?

        “All” over his body?

        “He would have suffered second-degree blistering at most”. Says who?

  • Louis Pipito

    That kid screwed up. Shoulda been watching where he was going, I mean, we are taught from the time we can walk to “look both ways.” He probably runs with scissors, too.

    These cops have a job to do and this kid wantsta impersonate a speed bump or do somersaults or whatever he wasn’t doing. Buy the kid a happy meal and everyone go their own ways.

        I sincerely hope that someday you find yourself in such dire straits – in need of compassion and help – and you’re treated with the exact same compassion as you’ve exhibited through your comments on this thread. The exact same.

  • ZoRo
  • Gordon Klock

    How am I supposed to believe this cop “accidentally” ran some kid over, & didn’t hear his screams of pain from underneath his cruiser ? I suppose it’s possible that he was so unbelievably incompetent & generally stupid, but this has a horrificly sadistic “feel” to it, I find it hard to believe the siren & engine would have drowned the kid’s screams after actually hitting him, & being such a dangerously ignorant & incompetent driver to not even notice that he actually just struck somebody (did he get his license at Walmart, Target, or Toys R Us ?) ……

  • Joe_the_Troll

    I guess “suspect” now means “guilty and not entitled to due process because NOT WHITE.”

  • FiuToYou

    Being an auto mechanic and living in a hot place, it’s really true that when you turn OFF a motor that’s been running, it gets hotter for the first 15 minutes or so and then starts to cool down. I don’t think the cop knew this, so he’s still an a-hole, but true is true. Ask any mechanic who lives in a HOT climate. Damage was done, but would it have been more damage if the motor was turned off?

    • canucanoe2

      The engine may get hotter because coolant is no longer flowing and the fan isn’t blowing, but the coolant system has absolutely nothing to do with the temp of the exhaust which is hotter because of the cat and the exhaust starts to cool as soon as the engine is turned off. Try again.

    • Redrerick

      “when you turn OFF a motor that’s been running, it gets hotter for the first 15 minutes”

      I don’t know where you leave, but in this universe at least we respect the laws of thermodynamics, and that’s simply impossible.

    • Hugh Culliton

      I disagree.

      First, heat rises. Regardless of the effect of the coolant system on the engine block which was over a foot above where the kid was pinned – it’s heat wouldn’t even touch him, It was the exhaust system which was in contact with him – that’s what was causing the burns.

      Second, the exhaust system isn’t cooled by anything other than the ambient air. In hot weather, yes there will be some radiant heat from the asphalt, but not enough to cause the anything close to the injuries this kid sustained. With the engine still running while the vehicle was not moving, the exhaust would have been far hotter than if the the vehicle were moving or if the engine were not running.

      Finally – 10 MINUTES?!?!?! Given 10 fucking minutes, people trained in emergency first aid, and even trained & trusted to dispense lethal force if necessary, couldn’t figure some way to ameliorate the kid’s suffering? Turn the engine off – douse the area with water – use a couple car jacks and blocks to lift the exhaust off him… I quizzed my Grade 10 behavior class this morning: in 30 seconds, how many ways can you come up with to get a car off of someone in a parking lot? 12 kids – 30 seconds – 27 different yet feasible plans!

      Bullshit – they didn’t fucking try.

    Stupid cops cost us money too. This is an example total incompetence period.

    cops are low brow IQ idiots…ive been telling people,cops are tetarded,as in legally retarded,75 to 80 IQ’s,nbut yet they get a gun and badge,and of course thanks to the courts,now cops can use their police cruisers as weapons when ”they deem it fit”to use…so when a cops says he feared for his life,he can run over the suspect,im thinking something else happened here,but no one is saying what….just saying.

  • Steve Rusk

    Recognize it for what it is… Torture, these cops were getting their jollies.

  • Brett Rapley

    What absolute bollocks, they fucking well knew he was under the car and could have used the car jack to get it off him as well as turn the engine off. One of these days there is going to be hell to pay to all cops that treat people like shit. Fuck your blue badge privilege, your a fucking disgrace. Sort your bastard cops out before someone else does it for you.

  • mikehammack

    These echo chambers are creepy…

  • John Chabak

    Cops will not give aid to anyone that’s hurt by them. Ex. when Tamir Rice was shot by Cleveland police. one cop continued to stand behind the cruiser and do nothing but duck. The other shitbum took a walk over to him, then walked away with his thumb up his arse. If either cop had put a blanket on him or pressure on the wound he night have lived. Instead they chose to do nothing but let him lie on the cold snowy ground, until an FBI agent came along and administered aid to try and help him, by then it was too late. These cops killed Tamir twice, once with a gun, once with sadistic ignorance.
