confused Posted June 16, 2012 Share Posted June 16, 2012 http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/el-monte-police-dead-man-death-family-khoa-anh-le-159284545.html Another death by police of a person with schizophrenia near me. Last year Kelly Thomas died in a beating by Fullerton police in Orange County. El Monte is in Los Angeles County. There was a push by some people to implement Laura's Law after Kelly Thomas' death. I think the rationale was if he had been given outpatient treatment he wouldn't have been there. There was police training and 2 officers are being charged. Officer Manuel Ramos, 37, is charged with second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter, and Cpl. Jay Patrick Cicinelli, 39, is charged with involuntary manslaughter and felony use of excessive force. They have pleaded not guilty. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
