This is so sad...

In a case with eery similarities to the 2011 police beating death of Kelly Thomas in Fullerton, a veteran Spokane, Washington cop yesterday received a 51-month prison sentence in the excessive force death of a mentally disable man.

Officer Karl Thompson, 65, lead the charge against 36-year-old Otto Zehm, a school janitor who was falsely accused of a petty crime in 2006 and then hog-tied, severely beaten in the head with a baton and tasered until he died.

In the Orange County case, a group of Fullerton Police Department cops falsely accused the unarmed, Schizophrenic Thomas, 37, of a petty crime and then beat him to death--including crushing bones in his face with the butt of a steel Taser gun while he was being held down, punched and kicked.

In both cases, defense lawyers for the offending officers claim there is no evidence that the severe beatings killed the innocent citizens who had been minding their own business before police decided to target them.

(Zehm's finally words were, "All I wanted was a Snickers bar." Thomas' dying gasps were, "Dad!")

Put a badge on a person they think they can do anything . I'm not saying all cops are rotten but a good share are!! Most cops couldn't tell the truth if thier own lives depended on it .They will bold face lie right to a judge and thier cop buddys will stick right up for them .

it's the rogue cops who have the "us vs. them" mentality. Sometimes the rogues partner up in which case the department has no excuse. They often are insecure with their masculinity and have issues with anger management.

There needs to be a strict violent nut screening system and civil rights education for ALL law enforcement, and there should be a mandatory death sentence for all police convicted of murder on duty. Put a tamper-proof camera and mic on ALL cops on the beat which can be accessed by some kind of oversight agency.

I hope the victim's family seek vengence on those Dooshbag cops after they get out of prison.
Also I hope they get beaten and raped in prison too.

If this happened to my relative, the former cop would disappear within a week of being released and never found.
