Another case of police brutality goes unpunished as the violent murders of Kelly Thomas were found not guilty in an Orange County court yesterday.
I am completely disgusted with this farce of a “legal system” we have in this country, as I cannot believe that anyone could view this footage and find them not guilty! Trigger warning: This is an extremely violent and brutal beating by the Fullerton Police, be aware before clicking this link!
Tonight over 100 people gathered tonight in solidarity with the Thomas family against the ruling, The LAist Magazine put together a piece on it with photos from live tweeters, and video.
There are protests already being planned. Anonymous plans a protest Tues the 14th at 11am at the Fullerton Police Department https://www.facebook.com/events/607232352658522
We have also heard a community call out for Saturday the 18th at 10AM also at the Fullerton Police Department.
We must demand accountability, because obviously these kangaroo courts are not serving justice.
These monsters need to be held accountable for murders, brutal beatings, and psychological terror they have continued to perpetrate unabated against the people for far too long. Why are they not held accountable to the laws they are supposedly meant to uphold?
We live in a country that fears imaginary “terrorists” yet believe in police who are 100 times more likely to maim or kill you or someone you love. Anyone who supports these people also has blood on their hands.
I urge you to join these protests, as well as every protest for every victim. This is not ok, and our silence is consent! No more killer cops on our streets, or any streets!
RIP Kelly Thomas, we are going to keep fighting for justice.
