THIS SONG DOES NOT BELONG TO ME. It belongs to Julian Porte (who I believe is pictured in the video) he is very talented in my opinion, and his song helps spread the message. http://soundcloud.com/jporte562

Please share this, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Julian's song is a great method to get support.

On July 5, 2011, 6 Fullerton police officers brutally beat a homeless schizophrenic man by the name of Kelly Thomas. The FPD got a call about a man trying to break into cars, and the FPD beat Kelly into a coma, which he never woke up from, dying 5 days later. The incident was kept hidden by the FPD for a couple of weeks, until finally exploding onto local news, internet, and even national news. The six police officers are currently on paid administrative leave until the FBI and District Attorney complete their investigation. However, protests need to continue to bring more attention to the story, and get justice in Kelly's name. I put this video together in order to have something to spread online, because this story needs more attention.

There is MUCH MORE to the story, I just typed up a short little summary.
