Calif. Police Not Guilty in Death of Homeless Schizophrenic Man

January 13, 2014  | 

An Orange County jury Monday found two former Fullerton (Calif.) PD police officers accused of killing a schizophrenic homeless man, Kelly Thomas, not guilty, reports the L.A. Times.

Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli were charged with striking Kelly Thomas with a baton and a stun gun in a beating that left him comatose. He died five days later.

Ramos' attorney, John Barnett, told reporters: "These peace officers were doing their jobs...they did what they were trained to do."

Orange County Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas said prosecutors would not pursue charges against a third Fullerton officer accused in the Thomas case. That officer's trial was pending.
