    District Attorney finds 'no evidence' that homeless man beaten to death by police had been intentionally killed

    A District Attorney claims he's seen no evidence that police had intentionally tried to kill a homeless man who died after being beaten to a bloody pulp by six officers.

    Schizophrenic Kelly Thomas, 37, died after resisting arrest in the college town of Fullerton in Orange County.

    Video of the incident shows police officers beating and tasering Mr Thomas repeatedly as he lies on the floor crying out for his father.

    His death has sparked outrage in the suburb southeast of Los Angeles.

    According to reports Thomas - who suffered from schizophrenia - caught the attention of the police after someone reported a burglar was breaking into cars parked near a Fullerton bus station.

    When officers approached him in the depot parking lot and tried to arrest him, he resisted.

    Eye witnesses Mark Turgeon, said: 'They kept beating him and tasering him. I could hear zapping, and he wasn't even moving.

    'He had one arm in front of him like this, he wasn't resisting. And they kept telling him, "He's resisting, quit resisting", and he wasn't resisting.'

    Members of the Fullerton community described Thomas as a passive, peaceful person.

    He had a previous conviction for assault with a deadly weapon 16 years ago which had been attributed to the onset of his mental illness.

    Since his death, his family and members of the community have held protests outside the police department headquarters, looking for answers.

    His father Ron Thomas, a former sheriff's deputy, claims he rejected a compensation offer of almost $1million, and plans to sue the city of Fullerton.

    He said: 'His death was gang-involved, the way I see it. A gang of rogue officers who brutally beat my son to death.'

    Most cops lack training and even a basic understanding of how to deal with the mentally ill. Seen too many siuations where excessive force has been used.

    All the police should be trained in dealing with the mentally ill. Too many of them want to try to act like the hot shot. Ones with anger issues should be required to take anger management classes, especially the italian ones.

    Look at this former police officer that is married to serial killer Amy Fisher. He threatened to kill Jeremy Jackson right where he stands, while Doc Gooden looks on.
