Kelly Thomas - Murdered for being Homeless in 2011 by COPS

Please watch this video and share it widely. There is never a time for this - ever. the victim's death  is the real reason you must see it to understand why you need to reblog this.  This man was murdered by Police in Fullerton California - and the police are still on the job. No charges have even been filed against them in this outright murder. that is why the feds are now being asked to investigate this case.

What we should be asking is Why Does it take Anonymous to bring this to our newscasts ?

Kelly Thomas Is You - He Died five days later from the effects of being Homeless; Tasered and Beaten to death by cops. He Was Murdered. There is no way to dismiss the behaviour of these cops. just as there is no way to dismiss the way society makes people disposable. 

Notable claims:
  • One officer supposedly beat Kelly Thomas with the butt of his Taser until blood started coming up all over the officer’s arms and hands.
  • Another officer supposedly drop kneed Kelly Thomas’ nose and throat with the full force of his body weight multiple times, crushing the victim’s throat.
  • This happened while Kelly Thomas was not moving or resisting.
The story of a homeless man beaten to death by the Fullerton police seems to be attracting some significant attention outside of our own little town.

Police Beat Homeless Fullerton Man Kelly Thomas To Death

Homelessness has risen more than 500% in the past 10 years. many of the working poor are too poor to get a home of their own. they live in cheap motels, or shelters when they can't. they work minimum wage jobs when they can find them, and they die the slow death of social disinfranchisment. this is why America needs to see this video on every newscast. 

If you don't believe that this is common in America - spend a few moments with a homeless person and ask them. they will clarify the situation for you.

Remember This Could Be You - anytime, anywhere in America,
