    You simply do not know. You see what you want to see in that video.

    You figure....well, you get, the ED contained and you strapped him/her down so EMS can sedate, the crazy ****.
    lol actually getting all that done when someone has retard strength can be an entirely different scenario plus *their* pain tolerance is going to make OC spray ineffective and shrug aside any taser follow up

    Moderator's Warning:
    Police not guilty in Kelly Thomas death; DA won't try 3rd officer[W:173:381]The personal comments and backseat modding need to stop now. Stick to the topic, which is not each other and leave out the baiting.

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    He is the proximate cause.



    Focus. This is about him, not me.

    His obviously caught him though.





    It is true because it is true.

    Obviously you haven't watched the video as it was not unprovoked. It was in direct response to Kelly's actions.

    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.


    Unfortunately for you, I have the Jury's verdict on my side.
    What do you have? Only what you wish to believe, which has already been shown to be unrealistic.



    The words on your image in reference to Kelly?

    Between 1990 and 2011, Thomas had 92 encounters with the police. These encounters ranged from minor infractions such as trespassing to assault with a deadly weapon.

    Death of Kelly Thomas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I would suggest that that is not being known as gentile.
    Force used to control is acceptable.

    Excessive force was uncalled for, and resulted in his demise.

    Are you actually familiar with use-of-force issues? Federal case law? Local policy? ......and most importantly, the resistance offered by *said* suspect?

    Rule of thumb....and memorize it

    If the level of force employed is justified, injury to the threat is of no consequence....hence, the NOT guilty verdict by, the jury

    I sure am, and you are completely wrong, as usual.

    Apparently the cops sitting on him as you suggest is what ultimately killed him in the first place, not the tasing and the beating.

    Thankfully the Jury got it right.

    There was no "beat down".


    The baton was in direct response to Kelly failing to comply. So saying it was unprovoked is ridiculous.
    The thing you cop-lovers forget when you make these statements is that there was a video and we all saw it. 5 pussies killed a homeless guy. Watch the video. The video can't lie like you do.

    I'm not so sure he's arguing that their actions were...proper...

    But rather that they were...legal? Hmm...

    Also, I haven't seen the video.


    Edit: And while a video (if unaltered) cannot lie, it can be misinterpreted by those viewing it, especially if it lacks full context.
    Whether that is the case here..../shrug
