Cicinelli and Ramos have been on unpaid leave for months. Wolfe is still being paid, pending his administrative hearing. Ramos has been charged with second-degree murder, and Cicinelli has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. Wolfe has not been charged.

Thomas succumbed to injuries suffered during the July 2011 beating.

well, this seems nice to begin with. When will these pieces of shit actually serve time for murder though? As, from the unedited footage, it is plain to see they absolutely murdered this innocent man.

The Good news and the BAD news.

This is the first time that Tony ( The Orange Count DA) BALONEY has had the guts to file murder charges against an Orange County Policeman.

The BAD news: This is Orange County, the original home of the John Birch Society, which still has a great influence that makes our
local governments unethical and immoral.
