UPDATE (01/14/14): Officers Found “Not Guilty” Despite Footage of Them Beating Kelly Thomas to Death

Unbelievably — but not surprisingly — the officers have been found “not guilty,” according to reports.

A jury has found them not guilty on all charges, despite the overwhelming video evidence.

A third officer, Joseph Wolfe, was also accused of involuntary manslaughter, but the DA has now dropped the charges in light of the not guilty verdict.

The verdict has sparked outrage across the nation.

As one commenter puts it, “I’m ashamed that this is what our country has belittled itself to.”

UPDATE (01/15/14): Cop Who Bragged About Beating Thomas “Wants His Job Back”

Officer Cicinelli, who was seen on video pounding Kelly Thomas’s face with the butt of his taser, has now petitioned to get his job back with the police department.

Cicinelli was on the forefront of the murder of Thomas and was named as one of the primary assailants, according to reports.

Jay Cicinelli

Officer Jay Cicinelli has only one eye because a citizen attempted to assassinate him in the 90′s, while he was working for the LAPD. Cicinelli survived the attempt. He was recently found “not guilty” despite video footage showing him beat Kelly Thomas to death.

After the beating, he is also quoted as bragging “”I got the end of my Taser and I probably, just probably smashed his face to hell.”

A digital recorder also caught him saying, “”I fucking beat him probably 20 times in the face with this Taser.”

After being found “not guilty,” Cicinelli is now doubling down and attempting to get his job back, hoping to fund himself with money from hard-working Americans.

If he gets his way, he will be armed once again and set free to roam around in our neighborhoods.

COTTON DAY

August 9th


On August 9, 2007, Eureka police officers Justin Winkle, Adam Laird, Gary Whitmer, and 5 others beat an unarmed Martin Cotton II to death. In broad daylight, officers pummeled Martin's head and body, then brought Martin to jail, never giving him medical treatment. Medical care could have saved his life. Martin died in the jail cell of blunt force head trauma, writhing in pain, within two hours.

It's Not Just the LAPD: The Big Lie About Police Brutality is Claiming it's Not Rampant

The Thin Blue LIE

  
I will always remember the first time a cop lied to me. Or rather, the first time that I knew beyond a doubt that a cop was lying to me, sitting right there in the interview room with a tape recorder in front of him.
