Read the Full Transcript of the Night Fullerton Police Killed Kelly Thomas

As if watching the video of Kelly Thomas' beating wasn't enraging and gut-wrenching enough, a website called Arrest Angel just released a full transcript of what transpired on the evening of July 5, 2011. The document is 37 pages long and covers the security-camera video in its entirety: from the moment Thomas was first approached by Officer Manuel Ramos to when his limp and bloodied body was carried away by paramedics as the cops licked their "wounds."

There is something eerie about reading the encounter as if it were a screenplay. Thomas' words cannot be minced, and yet the officers' responses to his eventual cries for mercy sound more like they're chatting over donuts than beating the shit out of a man.

Read the document in its entirety below.

I just saw a video on YouTube of a cop that was sitting down the block in his cruiser and pulled away from the curb as a truck went around a corner and pulled into it's driveway and the cop got out with his gun pulled and shot the guy before he even exited the truck, cop claimed that he had a knife when no knife is visible and they loaded the guy with 11 bullets total after he was already down and all he was wanted for was a parole violation and an earlier domestic violence dispute and they killed him on the scene and did not identify themselves. Didn't even bother to question him first. No cops were attacked and they attacked him first.

just from reading the beginning of the transcript I can tell you for sure that Ramos is an asshole cop, deserves what he gets because he's a criminal cop and he approached Kelly Thomas and struck at him first. I remember a video piece that I saw where Ramos was trying to get him to hold his legs out in front of him at the same time that he wanted him to fold his legs up and that cannot be done, like he was trying to twist him into a pretzel or something.

When are people going to wake up and see that our system is corrupt. From officers beating innocent lives to death to our government taking lavish vacations and the government giving free money to those who sit on their lazy butts and make more money than people who work hard. These cops are disgusting.

Fuck those assholes that took it upon themselves to beat this man for no other reason than they are thugs with badges! Also fuck those assholes that say his memorial should be taken down simply because they don't want to be reminded of the evil that happened there! Or better yet they want it taken down because they want his murder swept under the rug and forgotten!!

this was so close to my city, its sickening, how r they not imprisoned yet???? the cops destroyed evidence to cover up their act (destroyed a bystanders cellphone cuz he was recording) and they still dont find them guilty???? i dont feel safe. they serve food for the homeless just a few steps away, how do u get cops to stop killing people if they wont imprison the VERY obviously corrupted??????????

Hey guys, don't be so harsh on lil Joshy. He may like to suck fat dongs, but he is a good dude and has the right to say whatever the heck he wants. And any of you people who think you're all tough, you have nothing and I mean nothing on Josh. I once saw Josh suck a guy off for calling him a homo. Josh pinned that dude down, whipped his schlong out and went to town and until the dude came. " Who's the homo now huh?, who is the homo now" yelled Josh. Everyone was stunned. "That's my bro" I yelled. "THATS MY DAMN BRO"!

What a POS. "So I got the end of my taser and I probably...I just start smashing his face to hell" Justice for Mr. Thomas

@Joshua Van Tilborg  Josh, stop being so negative. I know your mad that mom banged a black guy at work, but that don't mean you gotta act all crazy my little homo brother. Hey think on the bright side. Do you remember when I tied you to the bed and busted a nut on your chin? You laughed like crazy that day.. think of that man.. think of that!

COPS SUCK! Mostly. because they never need a reason to take a human life. they are supposed to protect and serve the public. instead they prey upon the public to intimidate, threaten, steal from, beat, and kill. i use the term mostly, because i know "A FEW", out of hundreds i have run across, who are good.

Sorry everyone Joshua is my son. I beat the lil joto to many times and he lashes out like a pete puffer he is

What "reason" besides being an ego-driven bully would lead these two "men" to pulverize Mr. Thomas as they did? And according to the transcripts, later laugh about it.

Erik R. Winston

Thus the message within my post. The horrific abuse of authority that Mr. Thomas was subjected to that led to his tragic death at the hands of those hooligans should not escape justice both figuratively and literally.

f-that, that cop clearly told thomas-"I'm gonna beat your ass" which gives any human the right to stand his ground or run to safety.. I kno first hand how violent those piece of sh*t cops work in f-town.. they just love giving a good ass beating and think they can get away with it. truely thugs with badges, not all of them, but there are a few that u can say are in their own crew/gang who go out together and take advantage of their authority. and Tony Cockless just gets paid to lie

Only thing worse than a bully is a bully with a badge, gun, and state sanction to abuse their power and needlessly take people's lives. Two bullies against an unarmed mentally ill homeless man whose last words were begging for mercy, his dad, and God. They should throw those thugs under the jail and allow them to feel what Kelly felt.

we dont know about Icelands reporting of crimes in the past


ALSO, the police dont carry guns so that right there will show you the difference 



85+% belong to the church ( make of that what you will)


then you have the lack of diversity



while the usa is the greatest country EVER to offer advancement,


diversity brings with it


lack of understanding of other cultures etc


start with that and let me know

@Joshuas_Black_Bro  Joshua Van Tilborg is trying to buy legitimacy by trolling and making pro-police commentary. Partially because his dad Rene Vantilborg was a cop. Rene fathered an illegitimate, second  family while simultaneously raising Joshua. I say partially, because Joshua is also subconsciously trying to live vicariously through his dad's policing because Joshua is a sociopath and criminal.  Because of his crimes and guilt somehow he thinks that trolling and writing pro police buys him goodness, this is the typical Schizotypal ramblings of a guilty conscience. You can view his rap sheet - partially, here and a video of him acting like a police officer flashing identification of a cop to get into a club.
