Homeless, unarmed Kelly Thomas was beaten to death -and it was caught on video (you can watch the full video which was presented during the murder trial by clicking here…warning, it obviously is very graphic). Of course, true to American style no officer was punished. He was facing charges for “involuntary manslaughter” which is an insult in itself.
Not only was he cleared of involuntary manslaughter, he was cleared of even using excessive force!!! What kind of horrific injustice is this? I shall tell you. It is the American way; and it is a common practice, sadly.
Beating a man to death, especially with the video, not to mention the pleas for help, obviously he was no threat to anyone- period. And all the evidence proves he not only murdered Kelly Thomas but at the very least used far too much excessive force; fatal excessive force, in fact.
Below are the number of times Kelly Thomas plead for his life, in many ways, as the cop continued to beat him, to death.
Horrifically, the now former Corporal Jay Cicinelli, whom was acquitted of the blatant murder of this homeless man…wants his job back. I will not be surprised if he gets his wish, but that does not mean we -the people- should accept having a cold blooded murderer roaming the streets with a badge to kill -and a gun.
Below is a video from the Young Turks which explains the process this murderer will be taking in his attempt to regain his job back, so he can go on to beat and murder legally again.
