The former pigs that murdered Kelly Thomas murders found not guilty

Remember that case that I told ya’ll about? The one about Kelly Thomas, who was beaten to death by the police out in northern California?

Well, the bastards got off on the murder charges:

An Orange County jury Monday found two former Fullerton police officers accused of killing a schizophrenic homeless man, Kelly Thomas, not guilty.

Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli were charged with striking Kelly Thomas with a baton and a stun gun in a beating that left him comatose. He died five days later.

[Updated at 4:25 p.m.: Ramos, Cicinelli and their families were swiftly escorted out of the courtroom.

Ron Thomas, Kelly Thomas’ father, said he was stunned by the verdict, saying he’d never seen such a miscarriage of justice.

Thomas also suggested that federal authorities should look into the case.

Ramos’ attorney, John Barnett, told reporters: “These peace officers were doing their jobs…they did what they were trained to do.”

Orange County Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas said prosecutors would not pursue charges against a third Fullerton officer accused in the Thomas case. That officer’s trial was pending.

“I don’t intend to proceed with another trial when the two officers here were acquitted,” he told reporters.

The jury took less than a full day of deliberation to reach the not-guilty verdicts.

Proving that if you have the right kind of money and you happen to be a protected minority,, you can pretty much get away with anything. I’d get angry about it; but all the anger in the world, would not bring back Kelly Thomas.

It’s a sad day. :(

Just a reminder, these murderous thugs did this:

Kelly Thomas – RIP

Update: Ed Brayton agrees. Mr. Brayton and I might not agree on Religion. But, when it comes to Civil liberties, Brayton is right on point. Now, if we could just get him to leave the Christians alone. 😉

About The American Patriot

Short Bio: I started blogging about politics in 2006, as a populist, skeptical left of center type, with a blog called simply, "The Populist." In 2007, that blog was hacked by some nasty, evil neoconservatives who sought to silence me. During the 2008 election cycle, around the middle of 2007, I began to see that I really did not fit within those circles and after my blog was hacked; I created a blog called "Political Byline" and I kept writing; first as a Centrist and then as a Paleoconservative. For my long bio, see the "About Me" section on this blog.
