    Police not guilty in Kelly Thomas death; DA won't try 3rd officer

    Morning my friend!

    I don't doubt that force was required to restrain him.

    The issue was that the force became excessive, resulting in death.

    The cops were guilty of the same groupthink brutality as with Rodney King.

    Their vindication will result in increased loss of citizen rights and safety.

    While I support the jury system, mistakes are made.

    This is one of those mistakes.

    The CA citizens deserve the brutal police behavior that the jury condoned.

    I have been a cop and understand the mentality quite well.

    Have you seen the video? The cop instigates the entire episode with an unprovoked baton blow to the guys midsection. This is yet another travesty of justice. What is wrong with our justice system in America?

    The coroner's office determined that Thomas died of brain damage from lack of oxygen caused by chest compression and other injuries sustained during his struggle with police.

    That is a direct result of his resisting.
    If he hadn't resisted he would still be alive.

    You force police to get on top of you to subdue you, and you are responsible.
    Wrong. These rogue officers give good cops a bad name. This is a clear case of police misconduct...its just too bad that too many citizens are willing to give bad police a pass on things like this.

    Wrong. The blow was not unprovoked.
    Kelly had laid hand son an Officer and then failed to comply when told to get on the ground. And instead of complying he then attempted to flee.

    Have you watched the video? The blow was absolutely unprovoked....and BTW...I think any reasonable person would try to get away from a cop that just landed a blow to your midsection with his baton. The guy knew that these cops were going to beat the **** out of him.

    Like Rodney King? How about the dead guy in the BART station? Sorry...but the law is clear, there is no law against resisting an unlawful use of force. In fact, the jury instructions are very clear that if the cops are using illegal or excessive force, there is no requirement that the citizen submit to their unlawful use of authority. Try again.

    And it looks like they got away with it.

    I am just going to guess that this is not over with.
