    That is not what happened. There was no beating into a coma. That is exaggeration on your part.

    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.

    And Other Injuries.....you did read that part correct?

    Wrong.
    Compression of his chest is what happened.
    That compression caused by Officers trying to subdue him, as he was resisting.
    His resistance makes him the blame.

    Of course I did.
    Now you go look at the rest of the evidence as to what was testified to.
    It was solely the compression.

    I just got a text about this a few minutes ago. Wow. Wow wow. That's all I can say. I can't believe that they were found not guilty on all charges.
    The jury bears the responsibility of allowing murder by the cops to take place.

    They live there, and they will pay eventually, just like the cops.

    Anyone that finds the not guilty result acceptable is a blind moron.

    Subdued for resisting arrest for doing what?

    Not quite.

    Thomas' 2011 death galvanized local activists, who dubbed themselves "Kelly's Army" and led to the recall of three city council members and the departure of the Fullerton police chief.

    Jurors have watched the 33-minute, grainy surveillance video repeatedly as they dissect the case. In it, Thomas can be heard screaming for his father nearly 30 times and cries out repeatedly that he can't breathe as six policemen fight to restrain him. The video was also synced with audio from the officers' body microphones.

    The coroner listed the cause of death as asphyxiation from the officers piling on his chest during the struggle.

    Defense attorneys countered that Thomas suffered from a weakened heart from years of methamphetamine abuse and was a mentally unstable and violent man who had abused drugs and alcohol since 10th grade.

    A forensic pathologist testified for the defense that the individual cells in Thomas' heart had changed their size and shape because of the drug abuse and that his heart cells had microscopic scarring. Thomas' heart also weighed 20 to 25 percent more than it should have for a man his age and size.

    Those abnormalities could have produced an electrical arrhythmia that killed Thomas, Dr. Steven Karch told jurors Monday.

    "What I saw were dead and dying heart cells," he said.

    Prosecutors countered with a doctor who testified that CT scans taken at the hospital showed Thomas' heart was healthy and the normal size for a man his size and age. Blood tests measuring the acidity levels in his blood, however, indicated he had been deprived of oxygen, which caused his heart to slow dramatically, said Dr. Matthew Budoff, a cardiologist at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

    "There was no arrhythmia in Kelly Thomas. We know that," Budoff said.

    His 91-year-old grandfather, Walter Dieball, approached the witness stand in a wheelchair and recalled how his grandson suddenly struck him three times with a fireplace poker in 1995 after the two argued. He said he didn't fear his grandson, however.....snip~
