Criminal Justice Quote: Juries Don't LIke to Convict Cops

A jury has acquitted two former Fullerton, California police officers on trial in the beating death [July 5, 2011] of Kelly Thomas, a mentally ill and homeless man…."I'm just horrified. They got away with murdering my son," Cathy Thomas, the victim's mother, told reporters….The victim's father, Ron Thomas, said that everyone now needs to be afraid. "This is carte blanche to police officers to do whatever they want."…Surveillance camera footage shows Thomas being beaten, clubbed and stunned with a Taser by police. The video sparked a nationwide outcry.
