In July, police in Fullerton, CA beat a homeless man, Kelly Thomas, to death. The police involved were later placed on paid administrative leave. Michael Sellers, the police chief, was later also placed on leave, and now he and several police are being sued for the wrongful arrest of another man, Veth Mam, last year while an internal investigation into the death of Kelly is underway.
Meanwhile, the Fullerton Police Department will not disclose the names of the officers involved, and there is still no word as to whether any sort of criminal proceedings will take place.
More as it comes to light.
