Two Fullerton, California police officers were charged in the beating death of Kelly Thomas but the release of graphic audio/video will ensure they serve much deserved jail time.
Audio from a participating police officer’s recording device has been matched to security camera footage, revealing the events as they unfold in real time. And what it reveals is truly shocking.
At one point, 6 Fullerton police officers are piled on top of 130 lb. Kelly Thomas, using tasers, flashlights, batons and fists to reduce him to the latest very-public victim of police brutality. The video made me sick and, much like the Rodney King video, reveals how some cops are bullies with a license to abuse and injure society’s weak and defenseless.
