Kelly Thomas: Medics, not cops, to blame for death, defense says

May 8, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: latimesblogs.latimes.com

The lawyer for one of the Fullerton policemen charged in the beating of a mentally ill homeless man suggested Tuesday that it was medical professionals -- not police officers -- who are to blame for the death of Kelly Thomas.

Because they are cowards.

Without the badges & guns, they are nothing.

Wheres Obama's outrage? He loves to jump in and ratchet up the HATE.

Oh, I forgot the victim is White. And, no one ever said that Obama was about fairness.

If the vic had been Black LA would be ablaze.
Maxine and Sharpton would guarantee it.

Are you kidding? Only one is being charged with a serious crime. And one other with a slap on the wrist.

Any cop present, should have been charged with manlaughter and any cops who inflicted blows, second degree murder.

Funny, how they have one standard for us and another standard for cops.

And some idiots wonder why normal citizens have no respect for LEO's. Can't wait to read about a pig getting whacked. It's called karma.

Oh, are you mental health expert? Ever had a family member who suffers from mental illness? Don't be so quick to pass judgement. Some people with mental illness don't want to be home or can't live at home for various reasons. The point of this entire case is that an innocent man was beaten to DEATH by the very people who are suppose to protect and care for citizens. Please do your research before you use such thoughtless.

Libby, don't waste your time with morons like Capt America.

I am all about accountability and taking responsibility for your actions. But nothing Kelly did justified him being beaten to death. An idiot such as Capt America doesn't get it.

What do you know about his family relations?

You're blaming his parents? As if the ugly shit faces (what's the criteria for being an officer there, anyway, goon swad)are absolved of any wrong doing? Kelly should have had ALL the freedoms citizenry is entitled to.

And I would give my right eye tooth to know the iq's of these two pigs that tortured this man to death. By their demeanors, I would have to agree with Alex Jones that there is an agenda to hire the low of the low so they will get a 'hard...' about their 'station in life'so they will do exactly this kind of behavior.And we pay this garbage murderous trash higher wages than in the private sector? But I digress.

I have watched the tape of Kelly Thomas being intimidated, abused and GROSSLY tortured up to the moment of his death and I will take this outrage to my death. Were it in my capability, he would rise up and slaughter this UGLY FAT LIKELY ILLITERATE garbage who may have been the ONLY living gene that crawled down their mother's leg
I postulate. Our gov't KNEW that if they put the low life in a bade, it would be VERY productive element, indeed, to result in the destruction of America. Get with it. Due to this garbage America keeps sliming down to a third world country, and and idiot (it takes a cop to know one) would have recognized these subtle transformations at least 30 years ago, if NOT before.

Kelly. God Bless you. I know He does. And that garbage that viciously assaulted you WILL get their day in court. And I have NO doubt, not even a corrupt element will prevent that. Cop in a fed prison? Their pain will make yours look like a mosquito bite. There are no words for what you suffered. Many are crying for that.

Ever noticed these puss.....'s on the side of the road, with their black garb astride a motorcyle aiming that 'gun'(lol) at traffic with that 'i'll get you' touch guy look on their faces?

Well, IMO, if freud were here, he'd explain THAT quickly. Absent father, and domineering mother.

Come to think of it. I knew a mother of a 'lad' that quickly transformed into a state trooper and she bragged that he 'had a gun'(ooh my) and he brought his cruiser to the alley behind her home for her to marvel at (while that narcissistic, but idiot, got his feed off MY tax dollars), and she soon 'bragged' to me that her son pulled a man over for speeding,'but they talked, and when he found out the guy layed tile, he told him if he layed tile in HIS home, he wouldn't give him a ticket, and he agreed to'(and they were all happy violins going off). Wish I had called his 'superior', if there was such an animal, and reported this interchange, like THAT would have done a lot of good.

There should be a tv show "American puss man has badge". Because they DO! Ever notice how a MAN does not want anything to DO with a badge? Because a MAN is comfortable in his own skin. He does not need a BADGE or a title. On the other hand. There are pu---------- The 'nothings'.

Well, it would oft times seem the police ARE in competition with the gangs. Very astute comment.

Who got the bigger 'badge'?
