FILE - In this photo taken July 12, 2011, one of the posters of Kelly Thomas posted around the Fullerton Transportation Center in the hopes of elicit information of a police beating they believe led to the death of Thomas in Fullerton, Calif. Police in this small college town should have been intimately familiar with Kelly Thomas and his history of mental illness. He had a 17-year string of arrests around the county for everything from assault with a deadly weapon to public urination to jaywalking. But somehow, things ended differently this time: Thomas died of severe head and neck injuries last month after a violent fight with six Fullerton officers who were trying to search his backpack after reports he'd been breaking into cars at a transit hub. His death has drawn outrage in this town best known as the home of a popular California State University campus and raised questions about how well the city's cops are trained to deal with the mentally ill.
