Defense: D.A.'s contention 'absurd' in Kelly Thomas case

There are 1 comment on the The Orange County Register story from Dec 28, 2012, titled Defense: D.A.'s contention 'absurd' in Kelly Thomas case. In it, The Orange County Register reports that:

When a proper constitutional test is applied, the "threat" by a former Fullerton police officer to a homeless man that he would "f---" him up with his fists if he did not "start listening" was not unlawful and did not give the transient a right to self defense, the attorney for the officer said Friday in court documents.

Listen.trying to defend these hoodlum cops on such minor infraction by Kelly is useless . Everything is in video.these were not professional cops.these were thugs that night Kelly was unlawfully beat.police get paid to know how to handle situations.Kelly was known by Ramos. What was this excessive force used for? He had no knife or gun or other weapon. Anyone with half a brain know these cops murdered this guy. No defense for such disregard of life. He was no threat! The guy was attacked by police without them even giving himself a chance. They were all over this guy so he could not breathe. why beat him in head with taser.? Is this professional?
