Musicians and Bands Tweet About Kelly Thomas Verdict...

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/18/14)
A variety of musicians and bands have begun speaking out on Twitter about the Kelly Thomas verdict. Will Pugh, of Cartel, stated, "If you care at all about civil liberties, you should be paying attention to the Fullerton PD's actions," and Man Overboard tweeted, "No justice for #KellyThomas means no justice for all American citizens. A sad day in our history. Embarrassing and heartbreaking to witness."

been following this story since day one....the verdict tore me apart. im hoping this will go to the federal court because there's fucking video evidence that even made the judge feel sick to his stomach.

While this is extremely depressing, please everyone, let's remember that 99.9% of police officers in the USA are great people who do whatever they can to help out and protect complete strangers, even at great personal cost. They put themselves in danger to stop tragedies before they happen or prevent them from getting worse, sacrificing everything at time. 0.1% are horrible and do this, but don't judge everyone that tried to protect you on this very small minority.

RIP Kelly Thomas. It is a terrible shame this happened and justice has not been served.

I hate how lost this idea gets. Police officers are people and just like people most mean well but there are some bad ones and it's always the bad ones that get headlines

i respect police officers. alot. i even feel sorry for most of them because alot of people criticize them and call them "jerks" and "shitheads" for only doing what they get paid to do.

but this story is just gross. they deserve to rot in jail

I know not every police officer is a bad person. But enough are where police brutality is a massive issue that faces almost no repercussions. This is disgusting.

This. Not to mention the fact that a good amount of law enforcement officers in this country treat homeless people and those with psychological issues as second-class citizens.

I'm so glad people are paying attention to this case. It's been huge locally, and I'm hoping more and more people take notice of what really went on.

So incredibly fucked up. This is fucking insane, video evidence of the man's obvious compliance and charges dropped? Fuck the judge on this case and all officers involved in the beating. "Involuntary man slaughter" bullshit. Shit pissesme off so much. God damn it.
