FULLERTON, Calif — Fullerton Police officers tased and beat Kelly Thomas, a mentally unstable homeless man to death in an incident that was caught on video.
“They kept beating him and Tasering him. I could hear zapping, and he wasn’t even moving,” said Turgeon. “He had one arm in front of him like this, he wasn’t resisting. And they kept telling him, ‘He’s resisting, quit resisting,’ and he wasn’t resisting.”
Police say they won’t talk about what force was used since it’s under investigation, but they say at least six officers were involved and two officers suffered broken bones in the fight.
