"It just sucks. Everything about it sucks." Those are the words of Jeremy Popoff, owner of the Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen. On July 5 outside his restaurant, Kelly Thomas, a 37-year-old mentally ill homeless man, was arrested in a violent clash with Fullerton police. Thomas died five days later, after he was removed from life support. The people of Fullerton remember 'a quiet, gentle soul'.
There's some footage showing the reaction of bystanders.
This post was deleted for the following reason: I'm inclined to agree with Mr. Popoff, but this is kind of just "a horrible thing happened, here's some bystander footage of this terrible thing that happened" and long experience and plenty of previous police/taser/etc threads on mefi suggest there's not a whole lot of good to come of this being a post. -- cortex
