Emergency Relief Drive for Officer Manuel Ramos
Fullerton, CA Police Officer Manuel Ramos has been charged with beating a homeless person to death. He’s in jail right now, being held on $1 million bail, and he’s afraid for his life. Can you help?
Ramos and his partner — Jay Cicinelli, who’s free on $25,000 bail — arrested Kelly Thomas on suspicion of possible vehicle burglaries. Thomas suffered from schizophrenia in addition to being homeless.
Officer Manuel Ramos told Kelly Thomas to place his hands on his knees. Thomas had trouble complying . So Ramos clarified his request by yelling “Now see my fists? They are getting ready to Fuck you up!”
Then Ramos repeatedly beat Kelly Thomas with his baton, kneed him, kicked him, and shocked him several times with his stun gun. Jay Cicinelli arrived sometime later and joined in with the kneeing and stun-gunning.
After ten minutes of nonstop kicks, kneeings, baton blows and Taser shocks, Kelly Thomas was dead.
And now poor scared Officer Manuel Ramos is in jail, being held on $1 million bail, afraid for his life. And YOU can help: You can donate bail money to help free this innocent victim — or you can turn the page.
