    As already provided, so pay attention.
    Kelly laid hands on an Officer and then failed to comply when told to get on the ground. And instead of complying he then attempted to flee.

    Kelly provoked it use.



    iLOL
    There was no unlawful use of force.
    Where do you come up with this bs?




    iLOL
    You try again.

    As it is very clear that the jury found in favor of the Officers.
    You can say it 1, 10 , 100, 1,000,000 times...it doesn't make it true. Obviously it is you who hasn't watched the video. The blow to the midsection that instigated this entire this was completely unprovoked. But hey...it is obvious that you either want to see something that isn't there...or simple haven't watched it. Either way you are going to believe what you are going to believe.

    You are a complete idiot to say is death was not a result of them beating him; they did, in fact, beat him to death.

    Do you need me to provide videos that show excessive force (aside from the one in question), so that you can understand how stupid you are? Spare me your other videos irrelevant to this case.

    Man sitting while Cop puts on gloves (presumably to search the man)
    Officer: “Feet out in front of you”
    Man hesitant, but complies
    Officer: “Put your hands on your f*cking knees (while feet out in front)”
    (Note: This is not a position which an officer would normally perform a search, and there was no reason to order him into this position – his current sitting position with elbows rested on knees is absolutely unthreatening)
    Man complies
    Officer: “Now, see my fist?”
    Man: “Yeah, what about ‘em?”
    Officer: “They’re getting ready to f*ck you up”
    Man:”Well start punching then, dude, I’m tired on playing these games” (as man puts his hands up)
    Officer forcefully grabs him by the elbow
    Man stands
    Officers pull out batons
    Frantic man backs away in fear of the threat he received for no reason
    Beating begins
    Man dies

    Yeah ordering someone on their stomach and comply with orders while being tased six times (as if he could comply while being tased) while on the ground with 6 officers on scene. Excessive Force

    No, there were so many officers that beating him to death wasn’t necessary as he consistently pleaded that he couldn’t breath

    That jury is as f*cked in the head as you

    5 cops can easily take someone like Thomas down and cuff them in a matter of seconds, without throwing 1 punch or using a taser. The video shows he wasn't resisting. If you are getting tased and beat with batons and bludgeoned to death, you might involuntarily try to protect yourself, but that isn't resisting, is it?

    He did not die because of any beating.

    The weight of the Officers subduing him caused his asphyxiation.
    I guess that makes it all better.

    You need to realize is that in some situations, cops can't be concerned with, the ****ing whys, we just have to handle, the whats. Oftentimes that is completely dependent on the individual in question and no amount of comms may avoid a more intrusive *in your face* intervention.

    Strange, I don't recall hearing about this til now...

    Anyways, this sounds like, at best, legal but (highly?) questionable behavior on the part of the officers.

    And at worst, murder.

    The 'what' is that they killed the guy.

    The 'why' is because they could.
