His dad's a former OC Deputy Sheriff. I wonder if he's a cop hater too?

When poster Steel7 brought this to our attention last year I said it was a horrible gang beating. Plenty of posters disagreed with me vehemently. Well guess what.

Oh just incase you forgot what Kelly looked like after the beating that killed him, here is a reminder.

Kelly was mentally ill, schizophrenic... and the police knew it. They knew who they were dealing with. I hope they rot in hell.

I'm for law and order but that was just overkill, how exactly are they being trained in how to subdue someone scares the jesus outta me.

What was that, 5-6 cops on one man? the two fatties could've just used their pepperspray then tazer his limbs to get the guy in handcuffs. Use of baton/fist/knees/elbow was totally unesesary. That guy was no real threat.

I would vote in favor of prison for these thugs, for life, and have them individually locked with 5 anti cop inmates. Taxpayers footed the bill in training and entrusting them to protect and serve, we dont need anymore wasted taxes on these shiithole.

A difficult and usually thankless job doesn't excuse that.
Well said. My sentiments exactly.

This is reason. This is reason on drugs.

Is there any possibility the murder of Kelly Thomas by Fullerton PD officers might see Orange County change its traditional tolerance of rogue cops who use force excessively?
