    Local new reported last night that the police chief has finally removed the five cops from active duty. The sixth officer was place on administrative leave early on.

    The city of Fullerton has offered a $900,000 settlement to the family of a man who died after a struggle with police, according to the man's father Ron Thomas.

    Angry protesters demonstrated outside the police station Saturday.

    Story: Witnesses sought in Fullerton police beating

    Officers confronted 37-year-old Kelly Thomas July 5 after getting reports of a man burglarizing cars. They said Thomas became combative.

    Witnesses said Thomas was struck with a flashlight and shot with a Taser.

    Thomas, who was schizophrenic, was hospitalized with severe head and neck injuries and died several days later.

    Thomas' father calls the offer of money unacceptable. He's demanding justice.

    If you have any information regarding this case, you're urged to call the Orange County district attorney's office at (714) 347-8813.

    Thank God! I am sick to my stomach over this case.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    They are still working though. They should be locked up.

    >>Put officers on leave, councilwoman demands

    Fullerton Councilwoman Sharon Quirk-Silva is insisting that officers involved in an incident that resulted in a homeless manís death be put on administrative leave.
    snip
    Of the six officers, one is out on medical leave and one is on administrative leave, Councilwoman Sharon Quirk-Silva said, and the others were taken off street duty but are still working.
    Earlier reports from police officials have said that one is on medical leave but the remaining five are working
    In an e-mail sent Friday to Fullerton City Manager Joe Felz, Quirk-Silva wrote: "I not only request, but demand that action be taken to remove all police officers involved with this incident. Every time a siren goes off in Fullerton a wave of concern settles in<<

    Thanks for clarifying that, JBean. Yes, they are still on active duty, but not on the street.
    I agree that they should be on leave.

    This is so sad...to hear him calling for his father broke my heart. I am so glad to see the people of Fullerton standing up and voicing their anger keep it up until you have resolution in this case. This so senseless torture and beating of a human being perpetrated by those we believe are there to protect us, I don't know what else to say, I am at a loss for words every time this happens which is too often.

    I've heard about this story, but cannot read it, look at photos or listen to the audio. As you are all saying, it's absolutely heartbreaking. I have two brothers that I worry about a lot, and I cannot imagine this father's feelings right now. Just hearing about it shakes me up.

    If it's true that one of the city council members said that they would have offered a larger settlement to the father but his son was no rocket scientist, I'm left wondering just how many seemingly normal people in this world are really this heartless, corrupt and disgusting on the inside. I'm not referring to the monetary amount, of course, but to the statement this man was able to make about this poor victim, and to his anguished father.

    I really hope the FBI is able to sort this out in the light, and not a back room.

    There's a new video, taken from an Orange County bus. Local news is showing it. People are getting on the bus, commenting on the beating which was happening right at that moment...

    "they're beating the (bleep) out of him"

    'he (Thomas) was just chillin' and the cops came and surrounded him..."

    "...pounded his face against the curb until his face was red...more cops came...pool full of blood"

    "they killed him!"

    People in the video sounded frightened, sirens wailing in the background.

    I'm trying to find out where this video is posted.

    OH man the anonymous informant that has been coming on John and ken in the afternoon is a treasure trove of information about the incident and about the major aggressor of the 6.
    I will link to the interview this guy has all the skinny.

    I don't know what to even say about this. The pictures of the victim were heart-breaking, to say the least. I don't know...just...I mean, they BEAT him to DEATH! That's a very personal kind of rage. He wasn't accidentally shot, or in a car wreck. Beating someone to death, that's frightening to think about. IMO
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    I have not seen that one yet but will seek it out.
    Joe the video that is in the hands of the authorities is supposed to be clear enough to see freckles. the dispatcher zoomed in on the incident and apparently it is crystal clear as to who did what to whom. Also, one LE who is considered that major aggressor is ex-LAPD as he lost an eye in a shooting 3 weeks into his police career in LA and was picked up by Fullerton PD. he was bragging after the incident regarding how he beat the carp out of Kelly.
    Will look for podcast-highly informative.
