Where’s the Justice for Kelly Thomas

Published on Jan 14, 2014

Asphyxiation caused by mechanical compression of the thorax – that was the cause of death identified by the Orange County coroner’s office of Kelly Thomas, a 37-year-old, homeless and diagnosed with schizophrenia. But the true cause of death were the actions of Jay Cicinelli, Kenton Hampton, Manny Ramos, Joe Wolfe, James Blatney, and a sixth person – all employed at the Fullerton police outfit.

In September 21st, 2011 charges were levied against Ramos and Cicinelli. Ramos became the first police employee in Orange County to ever be charged with murder when on the job. In early December, 2013, trial finally started for the pair. (Joseph Wolfe, who was also charged, is to have his own trial. No one else involved was ever charged.) On January 13th, 2014 Ramos and Cicinelli were said to be “not guilty.” Such is the accountability afforded by the criminals justice system, which only underscores even more, the need for us to liberate ourselves from those coercive monopolies that incentivize and rationalize such incidents (

Johnson: Outcome of Kelly Thomas case was all too familiar

I knew from the moment they charged former Fullerton police officers Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli for the beating death of Kelly Thomas that there wasn’t a jury in Orange County, or anywhere in this country, that would ever convict them.

They killed that young man.

Of course they did. You know it. I know it. And somewhere, deep down maybe in their heart of hearts, even they have to know it, too.

I knew from the moment they charged former Fullerton police officers Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli for the beating death of Kelly Thomas that there wasn’t a jury in Orange County, or anywhere in this country, that would ever convict them.

Second-degree murder? Oh, please.

Involuntary manslaughter? Not the slightest chance.

I have seen this movie way too many times.

Over 36 years in this business I have covered and written numerous times of the heart-wrenching sorrow and, later, the red-hot outrage of the families of the dead.

It always ends the same.

The saddest and, perhaps, most fascinating aspect of each killing is that the dead was never, say, holding up a bank, laying out dynamite in a mall or even punching a kid. They get killed over the simplest of things.

Exactly what did Kelly Thomas do?

Yes, someone put a call in to police saying someone was pulling on car door handles in a parking lot. Read that again.

When Manuel Ramos and his co-workers got there, they found Kelly Thomas.

And they beat him to death.

They didn’t even bother to ask him about the door handles. Manual Ramos just pulled on gloves, threatened the young man and went to work.

What I have discovered over the years is a simple fact:

We simply will not believe police officers who are charged with protecting us, who we might need when someone pulls on our car door handle, would ever do such a thing.

We cannot countenance it. To think a police officer would kill us simply on the suspicion of one of us pulling a door handle – my goodness! – that would flat out terrify us.

No, no, we say, that young man must have done something for those poor, poor officers to react the way they did.

The dead people in every case I have covered were alleged to have been “overly combative.” This is always so and oft-repeated, just as Ramos and Cicinelli’s defense counsel last week incessantly told the Thomas jury.

The dead, were it actually possible for them to testify, I am almost certain would say they were not being combative, only writhing wildly from the awful pain of being Tasered, beaten with batons and that very same Taser gun while at the same time having their windpipe and fragile skull crushed.

“Dad, they’re killing me, Dad!

“They’re killing me!

“Daddy! Daddy!”

Those final words of Kelly Thomas seem hardly the menacing taunts of a combative homeless man who needed a squad of police officers to be subdued and arrested as the defense preached to the jury, which bought it.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckus saw what I saw on video, what you saw, what the jury saw time and time again.

It sickened him so badly he decided not to pawn the prosecution off on some deputy. No, he would go after the cops himself.

Give the man credit. All the DAs I have ever known over the years would rather, I am certain, prosecute their own mother than bring a case against a police officer. Yet Tony Rackauckus saw what you and I saw, and couldn’t shake it.

“An utter disregard for human life,” he said, accurately summing up his case to the jury. “This didn’t have to happen,” he followed up even more accurately.

Videotape. I learned a long time ago, that it matters not one whit.

You might simply be a motorist with a tail light out and get savaged, every stomp, baton swing and blow to the skull all on tape.

It always comes down in court to whether the jury is going to believe the good officer or their lying eyes.

Not guilty verdicts all around. Every time.

You, too, could be Marvin Booker. I will be quick with his story. I stood with and wrote about his grieving family, too, not long ago.

What happened to the middle-aged, homeless street preacher three years ago is every reason why I believe everything I have just told you. You can even look up on your computer what happened to him.

He was already in jail on a relatively minor drug paraphernalia charge. In fact, he was there so long he had taken off his shoes.

When they finally came for Marvin, he stood up and began walking for a bit before remembering his shoes.

He went back for them. That did not sit well with his deputy handler, who later said Marvin had become, of course, “combative.”

In what seemed like an instant, Marvin was Tasered. He soon disappeared under a pile of other deputies. His arms were wrenched, his neck was choked. Only when Marvin stopped moving did the deputies get off of him. He stopped moving because he was dead.

Though the coroner classified Marvin’s death a homicide, not a single criminal charge was brought.

Marvin – remember, he was already in jail and the entire beating was on videotape – was combative and posed a threat to the deputies, it was ruled.

He hadn’t pulled on a car door.

Marvin just wanted his shoes.

Want to End Police Brutality? Focus on the Institution

Published on Dec 25, 2012

If you visit even infrequently, or if you pay attention to media outlets other than those considered mainstream, you are undoubtedly aware of the double-standards claimed, and granted by many, to those who wear badges, which facilitates a reality of institutionalized violence. Such iterations will continue, and will grow in frequency and severity until the institution itself is changed. Though such a task might sound daunting, but it isn’t.

It necessitates only the withdraw of your consent; which will happen after you reject the bad idea on which the police state is based – that a “legitimate” right to initiate force can be claimed by some people (those who wear badges), and replace it with a better idea – that we all have the same rights, no matter our place of employment (or unemployment, and for that matter, our place of birth, gender, color of skin, or any other characteristic).

Today we see that more often than not, an aggressor wearing a badge gets away with their misdeed. That has to stop. The institution must be delegimized. Only then will all individuals be held to the same standards.

Ideas have consequences.
