    Police not guilty in Kelly Thomas death; DA won't try 3rd officer[W:173:381]

    An Orange County jury Monday found two former Fullerton police officers accused of killing a schizophrenic homeless man, Kelly Thomas, not guilty.
    Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli were charged with striking Kelly Thomas with a baton and a stun gun in a beating that left him comatose. He died five days later.

    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.

    This was expected, as the Officers were dealing with a person resisting. They had to use force to get him to comply.

    This really sucks.....looks like it is now in the hands of the Fullerton Citizens to take matters into their own hands. Make sure these two cops can't even walk the streets. Hook them up for anything and everything. Force them to move out of their town.

    Let them gangbangers take care of the matter I am sure they can find a few coming up from Mexico that will be willing solve the problem.

    They beat a man to death.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    A 160 pound man was putting up so much of a fight that 6 officers had to beat him to death?

    They did not beat him to death.

    So what, he died of an unrelated cause? That's nonsense.

    Beating someone into a coma, that lead to his death, is not adequate force to make someone comply. They went over the limit and should be in prison.

    Yeah, beat him and tazed him 7times while 3 of them sat on his chest. Did you see the picture of what they did to his face?

    Also there was no excuse as to why responding officers didn't come with Zip cuffs. Just like they do in a Riot situation. The guy could have struggled all he wanted and it wouldn't have mattered if his hands were in front of him or not.

    Ah hello?
    Have you not been paying attention?


    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.
