Add comment on:Killer Cop Charged with 2nd Degree Murder in Beating Death of Kelly Thomas
The second California law enforcement officer ever to be charged with murder for a line-of-duty killing is currently in jail on $1 million bail. He is Fullerton, California police officer Manuel Ramos. (The first cop ever charged with murder for line-of-duty killing was Johannes Mehserle: http://www.indybay.org/oscargrant.) Another Fullerton cop, Jay Cicinelli, is charged with involuntary manslaughter, also in the brutal beating death of Kelly Thomas. Of course the cops are blaming Kelly Thomas for his own death, but it appears for the time being that the DA and the judge are not buying it as bail will remain high for Ramos.
