Manuel Ramos, Disgraced Fullerton Cop/Kelly Thomas Killer, Chased Out of Denny's by Angry Public!

Thumbnail image for ramosmanny.jpg
Your daily vomit
An Orange County jury may have found disgraced Fullerton police officer Manuel Ramos innocent of murder charges in the beating death of Kelly Thomas--but that doesn't mean the public has, or ever will. Instead, Ramos is rightfully condemned to live life in non-cop society as an outcast, looked at with scorn wherever he goes--if he's lucky.

More likely, he'll be heckled out of any room he enters. And that's exactly what happened last week, at the Denny's off Harbor Boulevard in Fullerton just down the street from where Ramos and his fellow goons killed Kelly.

Let's go to the tape!

The update was posted Feb. 9, but only went viral yesterday after friends convinced the person who took the photo and provided the caption to set their Facebook privacy settings to public; as of this morning, it had been shared over 1,000 times, and will only spread further today.

Ramos no longer lives in Fullerton, but still has family and friends in the area. And now, the jokes: Coker said Ramos ordered the "Rooty Tooty Fresh and Brute-y"; our music editor, Nate Jackson, corrected him, saying "I think you're thinking of IHOP. Or in Ramos' case, IKILL." And Gabriel San Román ended our inter-office chuckle-fest by noting, "He should be in the slammer, not ordering a grand slam."

HAHAHAHA! Just stay in your room, Manny, 'cause such confrontations will happen again and again...

I took the bus/train a few weeks ago up to north and while on the bus in Fullerton the bus driver pointed at the exact spot where Kelly was killed.  He said something I had not heard before and I don't know if it was true, but he said they broke Kelly's neck too.

So many ugly Nazi mentalities on this blog.  Appears that most of these cop haters wanted Officer Ramos convicted of murder only because he is of Mexican descent.  Somehow, to the pro white supremacists who post here, the only good Mexican-American would be a dead Mexican or Mexican-American,,,even if that Mexican prevailed in a trial against him.  


What an eclectic group of shallow-minded people haters…whose brains house violent, self-loving criminals just waiting to leap out.


No wonder we need more cops.  Cops are the only protection we have against witch-hunting lynch mobs.  Too bad some of you are upset that some of our cops are not pure Aryan white folk.

KImchale,


Which one of the hijackers are you:  Debbie, Marvin, Paul, Scott, or the late Barb?


The reconquistas are very grateful to you all for stalling any immigration law enforcement progress for the past seven years.


Don't believe me, ask my friend Tom Tancredo.


Would like to enlighten you more, but I have to do an election speaking tour for someone running for congress who has an impeccable reputation for indicting and prosecuting illegal alien slave traders.


Meanwhile, give my regards to your dirty hijacker associates.  They got exactly what they deserved, except I think they should also have been prosecuted criminally, in my blatant personal opinion.


So, how long have you been possessed by Satan?

Vanessa Zavala and Candace Brito who killed poor Ms Pham and officer  Manuel Ramos who killed Kelly Thomas are clear examples of why Mexicans are natural born killers.

Hate to tell you this but Kelly Thomas is yesterday's news and in 6 months there will be nothing at all worth reporting about him.  In a year the OC Register (if it's still around) or the LA Times might run a "year later" article about the event but it will then die out again. The protesters will move on and do more worthless, ineffective protests against something else just like all good limousine liberals, no reason to show continuity for them.  Nobody outside of OC and LA gives a shit about whatever the Weekly does or prints.  The former cops will walk the world safely and the whole incident won't even be a blip in history.  Welcome to the real world....

BFD The same Denny's restaurant that would have refused entry to Kelly Thomas and any other homeless person, the same restaurant corp who has been sued for discriminating against minorities (including an African American SS Agent on duty)  BFD!!

its a damn shame they didn't draw and quarter that fat fuck and throw his still breathing torso into a pile of smoldering embers that are just tame enough to cauterize his limb stumps (so he doesn't bleed out and get off too easy) and let the flames take their time burning him alive. then they can throw whats left of him in a trash compactor where it belongs. if there is a god, his whole family will meet a horrible end - and it cannot be too soon. the thought of it brings a smile to my face and a sparkle to my eye

Please note that "innocent" and "not guilty" are not the same thing.  One can be not guilty and not innocent at the same time.  Nowhere is that more true than in this case.

On day one of the trial two Ramos supporters, both off-duty cops, made the following comment..."Kelly Thomas was a piece of shit. And so is his Dad". At one point, Ramos was standing two feet away from me. I felt great discomfort and nausea. I sure wouldn't want him around me while I were eating. Or ever again, for that matter.

Since the Jury was obviously too Blind, Deaf and DUMB to convict murderers because they once wore badges, then the duty falls to an informed public to do the right thing. And at every opportunity.

If Ramos, Cincinelli and the others don't like the scorn and derision they have heaped upon themselves by their betrayal of the public trust, that's just too bad.

They get to continue to breathe. That's a better deal than Kelly got.

If they want to eat somewhere, I suggest they have dinner at the homes of the 12 idiots that acquitted them.

Its apperent non of you were there on the countless nights that the Fullerton PD and Fire were called out on this drug addict with a tendency to resist and with 3 prior assaults on his record. But your the first to pass judgement when you see a picture of him in high school given to media by his father who had himself filed multiple arrest warrant on his own son. He is not the clean cut kid in the photo, he is a drug addict, he is a convicted felon, walk a mile in the first responders shoes. Not what the cops did was right , but they stood trial. So, now its time for all of you out there to post your own rants about how insensitive I am and how the guys deserve the death penalty. Justice was done.

Are you kidding me!  Did you even take the time to watch the video of Kelly Thomas being beaten to death while begging for his life.  You must be a cop who is posting this.  The courtroom and lawyers are able to manipulate the law.  It does not mean that person is innocent.  He still took the life of an innocent man.  Period!  BTW, before you make any response to me.  I grew up with cops.  My family being police captains, sergeants etc..  I think the police force has changed since the 70's.  I do not believe cops understand the meaning of what it is, to protect and serve.

@EricLynch I truly believe that a horrible fall is in serial bully Ramos' future. When, however, really when, is the public going stop these thugs in their tracks. I.E., bum rushing the scum when such behavior is witnessed. I know it's dangerous being they have guns and body armor. But, a precedent has to be set.


Cops need to understand they are no better than the rest of us. Would a large public gathering stand by and watch someone get beat down like this? I don't think so. 


According to the constitution ( no this is not a new law passed in Indiana. Indiana simply reverted back their adherence to the constitution that they briefly stopped. ) a citizen has the right to fire upon anyone that is obviously trying to murder another citizen without justification.


So the question is, "When is is legal to shoot a cop?" It's been legal since the signing of the constitution. We arguably didn't need to do so until recently. I say arguably of course citing the thousands of police officers that literally helped to lynch blacks in the South for so long.


O.K. I'm done for this comment.

I'm still having a hard time believing this is the real Jim Gilchrist! Aren't you so Anti-Mexican that you formed a group to halt their ever increasing numbers?

We aren't haters of cops, just haters of criminal cops! Aren't you? You would be ok with 6 cops beating one of your family members to death while they are on the ground begging, and I can't express the word enough! BEGGING for them to stop!!!

And it's not about race, cause we dislike Cincinelli just as much! Matter of fact, I'm full blooded Italian and as you might guess "Cincinelli" is probably of Italian decent!

But.............The MOFO is too ugly to be Italian! he has no resemblance as such! so I have to believe his step dad was Italian and he took his last name!

Either way, they are both a discrace to both our nationalities or race! Specifically the Human Race!!!

Hey NoBullshit you are full of shit! Those assholes will have to answer to a higher court someday and I wouldn't want to be in their shoes when they meet their maker! Meanwhile, the years left in this world will be hell on earth for them! Not only cause they have to wake up each morning and look at themselves knowing they are scum but because everywhere they go people will look at them in disgust! And oh yeah, let's see them get a decent job! So, if your a cop or thinking about being a cop and think you can kill or maime innocent people, You better think twice! We are all being judged! And in the afterlife? their juries don't get it wrong!!

Oink, Oink. Man what awful logic, do you sleep under your bed and watch fox news all day? I've met Kelly, he was clean for a while. He had psychological problems, if a cop can't handle that he shouldn't be a cop. Up the standards for law enforcement, not brutes with weapons who can't think for them selves. Seriously, cops attitudes towards people is terrible, sticking up for those animals in that video is complete and utter ignorance. Talk to a lawyer buddy, them getting the trial done over that holiday period was utter brilliance in a trial setting. Seriously, how can you respond saying a "justice was served" when you clearly don't even know what went on? Ignorance was served.

No, sir, he was mentally ill. There is a huge difference.  And, because our social services and health care system is broken, there are very few resources for families with mentally ill family members.  The only one left is law enforcement.  Law enforcement knows this but Fullerton PD chose to ignore the problem and refused to pay to train their officers on the handling of the mentally ill, instead, spending huge amounts of money on the North Orange County SWAT, so that they could participate in the drug busts that are far more lucrative to law enforcement.  Plus, Fullerton PD was less than choosy about hiring officers, clearly breaking POST rules when hiring Jay Cincinelli, knowing that he was unfit for duty.  Add in that cops have more rights than civilians, (pepper-spray pizza, anyone?) and you have an extremely poor argument for defending these two former officers.  And, the worst part is that Ofcr. Wolfe got to keep his job and the others involved didn't even get named.

Bootlicker. According to your argument, if your a drug addict and have prior whatever its your fault if a cop kills you?  I bet your either part of the "PD and Fire" or you have family who is. Its always people like you who take it so personal and you end up defending police brutality, and in this case murder. Ever hear of a tazer? "Justice was done" Really? Cause police and other government officials never get special treatment right? Get your head out of your ass.

scott, what you are saying is that, because this person was born with a mental illness that led him down the wrong path in life that he deserved to be beaten and electrocuted to death? if you have children, i hope they end up the same way as kelly thomas - slaves to an illness that they don't understand and murdered by the police because of it. using the 'first responder' speech to defend this cocksucking murderer and his gang of thugs is despicable because they are anything but heroes. aside from a minute fraction of cops, heroism is a non-existent trait amongst the police. by and large, the trash you see policing streets in this country are the very same dimwits that could barely pass high school but somehow managed to eek by - slimy fucks that they are - and graduate. so we give these subpar, unintelligent bullies a gun and send them out into the streets with zero oversight or culpability for their wrong doings. and then they whine like babies when one of their own (one of the few good ones - a hero, chris dorner) snaps from being bullied by his peers and starts picking them off one by one. do you honestly think that these half-wits actually have a difficult or dangerous job? do you know that law enforcement is not even in the top 15 most dangerous jobs in america? fucking christ - construction labor far exceeds the level of danger these retards face on a daily basis. and don't recall the last time i heard a carpenter or brick-layer crying about how dangerous their job was. i dont believe in karma, so people need to take matters into their own hands and run that fat pile of slop ramos out of town or, better yet, see to it that he dies slowly and painfully. just like what he put kelly thomas through.

@hitman_martinelli  I'm not anti-Mexican.  I am an advocate of LEGAL immigration that will continue our nation as a global economic power and a civilized society.  


I have seen first hand how a witch-hunting mentality overwhelms an issue and how it quickly accelerates into a lynch mob.  I specifically blame dirty journalists, like Frank Mickadeit of the OC Register, for example, for inciting their readers into engaging in a rampaging behavior that is destructive, violent, and sometimes injurious or lethal.  These are thrill seeking journalists, with personality disorders, who will write whatever propaganda it takes to bring them unwarranted notoriety in the sinister part of the journalism world.


I am an avid supporter of free speech and governance through the rules of law.  However, I prefer free speech to be exercised responsibly, not with reckless disregard.  


Our law enforcement organizations provide the essential insurance that our nation will remain a civilized nation.  They are grossly underpaid for the 24/7 services they provide, and they are mistreated by a mean-spirited, ranting lunatic segment of our society.    


The Fullerton police officers did the best they knew how under the facts and circumstances during the melee that was created, and accelerated by, Kelly Thomas, in my opinion.


These police officers should be immediately reinstated to their jobs with retroactive pay for the time they were suspended or fired without pay.  Furthermore, each of them should be awarded at least $1,000,000 (one million) in compensatory awards from the City of Fullerton for wrongful termination.

@hitman_martinelli  You're wrong.  

1. The cops probably don't think they did anything wrong so they are going to go through life just fine.

2.  Again, nobody outside of the LA/OC area gives a shit about the whole affair.  They don't even need to move out of the SoCal area to find a place where nobody has heard of the them or the trial.  You must not get out of your mom's house a lot.

@jimgilchrist Manny Ramos as a cop decided to pick on someone just because he felt that he was above the law. You do not put on gloves and threaten to beat the shit out of someone when they are complying and being confronted from what he though was no reason at all. The only time Kelly responded physically or defensively was after he was threatened for no reason other then being cooperative for what he seen as an unjust stop. As you may know.. atleast in some parts of the USA, if you are pulled over you do not have to give your name.


I am truly appalled at the lack of Justice in the USA with this case. and letting this despicable person continue on with his life. Though it could be in part for what he would of faced in Jail, he probably would not have lived trough a jail sentence. Lets hope he doesn't get to live very much longer. Judging from the picture he don't seem overly bothered by the ordeal, atleast not as much as a man with any decency man would be. Why does the US justice system defend such scum.

@jimgilchrist, I agree with your stance on legal citizenship.

But I will never, nor will 97% of the people with common sense agree with your position on the Kelly Thomas Murder.

You really need to watch the video because I'm sure measuring your level of intellegence you will agree with us, it was indeed a Murder!

We need law enforcement but not Gestapos!! There is a huge difference.

As far as your compensation? I think every reader on here who had to read your ridiculous retribution should receive at least $1,000,000 (one million) for the pain and suffering we had to endure reading that BS!!!!

Your turn........

I have friends in NJ who now know of these douches and they will tell their friends and you know all about the snowball effect, that is how it gets around!

3. Your wrong, I don't give a shit if you believe in God or not! There is also such a thing as Karma!! These assholes will feel the wrath of what comes around? goes around the rest of their stinking lives!!!

Go ahead, counter me with your BS! Bottom line? your on a losing team my friend!! 97% of the people who seen the video know these douches are guilty! The 3% like yourself? Is par for the course! There is about 3% of the world's population who are criminal assholes!!
