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

    Excon is a troll, he does this in every similar thread taking the most ridiculous position, he gets off on it. I think it speak volumes about what kind of person he is. Anyways...

    This is pretty disgusting, I remember back when this video first hit it was hard to watch. Listening to this guy cry for help and flail around on the ground was just sickening. This guy posed zero threat to the gang of officers around him.

    I'm absolutely stunned the cops got away with this, I thought it could even go so far as murder, not just manslaughter.

    That is nowhere near getting beaten to death.

    Stop being absurd, and pay attention to the facts.
    Who gave him the "compression's"? Seriously, the police beat him to death, stop being so obtuse.

    they used violence on him and after that he was dead. So his actions lead to his death.

    Not tasering his face with it.
    You can hear the taser in the video.

    According to the coroner it was both, which makes sense. There was hundreds of pounds on him while beating him. As he lost body and muscle control from the beating he would have less ability to breath with the crushing weight. In the video there is one officer fully on him and 2 fat officers with their hands pressing against a police cruiser to maximize how much weight they could put on him. At least 500 lbs and like over 600.

    Basically they held him on the ground and put a cast iron V8 motor on his back while beating and tasering him. It is possibly they had broken some of his ribs with their clubs, for which the 500+ pounds pressed broken ribs into his lungs.

    People forget who it is the puts together the jury pool. It's the government. Only after the jury pool is picked does the Defense have any say among those who is on the jury.

    It is important to remember that street person had not broken any law, was unarmed and obviously unarmed having no shirt on.

    For the offense of being a shirtless street person he was clubbed, kicked, hit, tasered and crushed to death by half a dozen police officers.

    Don't bother answering as we already know they were trying to subdue a guy who was resisting arrest.
    A guy who resisted 5 or 6 taserings.
    That is why as a juror I would have voted for manslaughter to give them the benefit of doubt.

    It is you who needs to stop being obtuse.Being beaten to death is not the same as death by compression.
    Stop being absurd.
    His death resulted from compression he received while he was resisting arrest.
    That is nowhere near getting beaten to death.
