2012: Graphic beating shown in court

How does anyone get away with beating a man down like this?

2012: Graphic beating shown in court

 

Our subject video shows us the video the jurors in the Kelley Thomas trial got to see. In the video you can see up to about six cops trying to restrain Kelley Thomas a homeless mentally ill person. You can see the Officers hitting him with batons, flashlights, and their fists. At the end of the video they show a picture of the result of the beating. Throughout the beating Kelley Thomas can be heard crying out, telling the officers that he is sorry, and calling for his father saying the cops were killing him. Five days after his arrest Kelley Thomas died as a result of the beating.

I tell you, I can see where this could have gone both ways for the Officers. But at this very moment, I am simply too disgusted to continue writing on this topic . . .
