It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart that I watched the video of that fateful night, July 5th, 2011. Kelly Thomas, a free spirit, and drifter was falsely accused of breaking into cars near the “SlideBar” in Fullerton, CA. We know someone at the Slidebar called the police and reported that Kelly was trying to enter parked cars. That was never proven and there was NO stolen property in Kelly’s backpack. There was discarded mail that Kelly got from a dumpster……The video clearly shows the pack mentality of the Fullerton cops. I will not call them “officers” because they do not deserve that title.
The video also shows JOE WOLFE striking Kelly first…..please know that only two of the 6 have been charged with any crime. It is my belief that all 6 should be charged- they are all complicit. Watch the video, then read the transcript….and please let me know what you feel & think……then get angry and join me and many others in taking action……we need to put pressure on the OC DA Tony Rackaukas to bring charges on them all. Not one of them belong on the street serving the public. In fact, they should all be removed of their duty and stripped of their badges.
