Kelly Thomas Beating Incident – Full Video of Police Brutality and Murder of Homeless Man

Two former cops accused of unlawfully killing a schizophrenic California homeless man in July 2011 have been found not guilty. Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli had been charged with battering Kelly Thomas with a baton and a stun gun during a vicious beating in Orange County that left him unconscious. He never recovered from the attack — which was captured on video tape — and died just five days later.

The acquittals came despite what appeared to be damning footage of the then-Fullerton officers continuing to beat the 37-year-old even as he begged for mercy and said he was sorry.
