The police repeatedly shocked Kelly Thomas with tasers and smashed his face with the butts of their flashlights, causing brain injuries, severe injuries to his face and neck, and fractured ribs, resulting in the homeless man’s wrongful death. Now the police have admitted that Thomas was innocent of any wrongdoing.
Six police officers beat the homeless man to death. He died from brain injuries and broken bones in his head and ribs, and was shocked repeatedly by police tasers on his head and face. As he died, he cried out in pain-filled pleas: “I’m sorry. I can’t breathe. Help, Dad!”
