Default Sherif's Mentally-ill Son Beaten and Tasered to Death by 6 Rouge Cops

The video is horrible to watch not so much because of the graphic nature,but because you can hear him calling out for his dad. Terrible to listen to this man call for his father while he is being beaten and tasered to death.

A shocking video may be released allegedly showing cops tasering and beating the homeless man to passing away who they claim had been resisting arrest.

Though the video isn't clear, eye witnesses state the homeless man -- Kelly Thomas, 37 - was not able to put up any opposition and was lying on the floor on his front once the attack took place upon July 5.
His screams and whines for his father could be heard amid the tasering sounds.Video of Cops Beating and Tasering Mentally-ill Man to Death

Unhappy

Truly sad but quite a common occurrence with LEO's that were bullies in H.S. and now have a bully license in that blue uniform.

The picture of him is absolutely unbelievable. I have never seen ANYONE take such a beating.

May you rest in peace Mr. Thomas.

And yep, I agree with what Schmaltz said.

I agree.

Those cops will stand in front of their Maker one day and face the ultimate jury.

It is a sad commentary, and does no good for the Hard working LEO's out there every day. Law enforcement only works because the citizenry respects the law and the badge, when that stops, it will be ugly.

It seems to me that words uttered by LEO's "stop resisting" are in some cases nothing more than a ploy to inflict unecessary force upon many arrestees. I had a client who was cold cocked by a LEO while hand-cuffed to the hospital bed. IA substantiated but unfortunately the statute on anti-litem notice had run.

Those cops should face murder charges.

They won't.

I didn't watch the video, I can't because that stuff makes me sick. I can't stand how these so called people can get away with murder, if it ever were to happen to my child I know I would be in jail for police homicide.

That's down right sickening!~~~~~~~~~~~~~!
Those six cops and anyone that defends their actions should do general population time in Attica prison and then rot in hell for eternity!

Have any charges been filed against the assailants? Have they been suspended? Have their identities even been released yet?

Nothing will happen to the cops. We all know it. They will get some sort of paid administrative leave after a drawn-out process.

I bet at least one of the six kills or maims someone again.

Although every occupation has its share of idiots the idiot cops can be nothing more than mobsters with badges and get away with the mob beating the OP posted.

I give my thanks to the men in blue for protecting our communities but bad cops like this shows why you can never trust any off them.

And that's the irony of the whole thing...

We have to trust them when it comes to matters in our lives that require police involvement...but if you can't trust any of them...

Cracker, chime in...

Maybe I missed it but what does the video show?

When you hear the taser making the "zzzzzzzz" sound, that indicates that it did not complete the circuit.

The video shows nothing. Nothing there to judge the police on.

If you fight with the police you will get hurt.

This sort of stuff will stop when the commanders in charge of supervising these officers are held responsible as well as the offending officers.

Probably not. They're just bullies who got promoted...higher paid bullies, if you will...
