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.

Tony Rackauckas should be removed from office!
where is the county issued gun you lost? Does your girlfriend still have that high paying job for which she has no qualifications for? You probably know these scum cops! You are a loser Tony R. I could tell along time ago you were nothing but a typical employee of the system that has no regards for those you are supposed to be serving. See no intention of killing that young man!
what a jackass you are. Hope BAD things happen to you!
It's what you and your kind deserve. Hope the Feds take you off the case.
