Today two ex-police officers were found not guilty in the 2011 beating death of a mentally ill homeless man. Kelly Thomas, a 37-year-old homeless man with schizophrenia, was approached by Fullerton police who were responding to a vandalism call on the night of July 5.
A 33-minute surveillance camera video caught the entire confrontation. The altercation began when Officer Manuel Ramos approached Thomas and engaged him in conversation. Fifteen minutes later, Ramos put on latex gloves and threatened Thomas:
You see my fists? They’re getting ready to f*ck you up.
