Horrific New Video Emerges of the Police Beating That Led to a Homeless Man's Death


www .theblaze.com

Kelly Thomas, a 37-year-old homeless man who suffered from schizophrenia, is at the center of intense debate in Fullerton, California. It was last summer that The Blaze first reported about Thomas’ death, following an intense beating from local police officers. He was subsequently placed on life support following the incident and later passed away. Now, his family — and many in the community — are seeking justice.

The article goes on to say :


A startling, 33-minute video shows the officers approaching Kelly, beating him and then seemingly laying on top of him. Throughout the ordeal, he can be heard screaming “help me,” among other pleas. Additionally, more than once, he tells the officers that he cannot breathe (his death certificate rules his death a homicide and proclaims that he died from ”mechanical chest compression with blunt cranial-facial injuries sustained during physical altercation with law enforcement”).


WARNING some people may find this video very disturbing.


Id never heard of this incident until today and found the video very distressing. Im not exactly sure what the guy did wrong in the first place but no one deserves to be treated in this way even if they are homeless. He did lose his temper with the way they were treating him but the police where big strong guys they should have been able to control the situation without beating the hell out of him. Theres no excuse for inflicting some much damage on this guy that he died for his injuries.

In England we call police "pigs"

If i ever got hold of them then "bacon" would definitely be on the menu

they didnt really beat him, he was a bit of a drama queen and most likely died of natural causes.

I think thats a bit more than just being a drama queen.

Did you watch the vid?

it clearly shows kicks, and one policeman hitting him repeatedly with a torch amongst other things

also he has schizophrenia which my brother has and he is hard work but does not deserve to get a beating
illness or not. It is called murder and these police deserve whatever they get..
