DA Sees No 'Intentional Killing' by Fullerton Cops
August 09, 2011
Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas has said he sees no evidence that Fullerton (Calif.) Police Department officers intentionally killed a homeless man when they beat him while attempting to bring him into custody.
Rackauckas's office is still attempting to determine whether officers used excessive force on Kelly Thomas, 37, during a rough July 5 arrest that has led to calls for the resignation of the police chief and prosecution of the officers.
