The L.A. Times reports:
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.

But it's all justified, right? After all, Officer Ramos got a booboo. Never mind Thomas Kelly was beaten into a coma. He deserved it, right?
"Oh but it's only a few bad apples," cry the police boot lickers.
Yeah, well why does this happen all across the nation multiple times a day? Why do these 'bad apples' still have a job? Why do they still have the freedom to walk around in society?
Ramos' attorney, John Barnett, told reporters: "These peace officers were doing their jobs...they did what they were trained to do."
Well, they did get that right...this is what they are being trained to do.
The pot is starting to boil over and one day, those Shiny Magic Badges aren't going to work anymore.
