Five LAPD officers investigated after mother of two 'who was kicked in the genitals and suffocated while in police custody' died


At least five Los Angeles police officers are being investigated in connection to the death of a 35-year-old mother of two who was allegedly stomped and kicked in the genitals during an arrest last month, police said on Friday.

Alesia Thomas was found not breathing in the back of a patrol car after resisting arrest in an incident that was captured on a dashboard camera.

I take all in-custody death investigations very seriously and directed the officers involved be removed from field duties until further details are known, including what part intoxicants and physical conditions contributed, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said. Im confident we will get to the truth, no matter where that leads us.

I don't deluge GD with these sorts of stories, but I did want to illustrate that LAPD are out of control to all Beck and Villaraigosa apologists.

4. Thugs. Every police department has them, the LAPD

has an unfortunate history of having more than their share.

8. I think Hollywood has a lot to do with it

People see movies like Lethal Weapon and they want to administer street justice to people. They think can do it by joining the LAPD.

The LAPD attracts these kind of officers. Rogue elements if you will.

12. The LAPD brass hire people to deliver violence. The LAPD street cops do what their employers want.

Investigations which disregard the role played by those who control the LAPD street cops are self-serving and worthless.

In too many cases, the police brass prevent meaningful reform by temporarily rotating cops involved with unnecessary and illegal brutality to desk duty or paid leave before rotating them back to the streets.

14. It's sad that it took Dorner going ballistic to make anybody pay attention.

The problem of police thuggery is by no means limited to LA.

We have a huge problem with the culture of policing in this county, and it seems to get worse by the year.

Why do you think so many people fucking hate the cops?

17. This is sickening to watch.

 

At the very least, these two thug cops should be fired and charged with Assault and Battery with great bodily harm.

LAPD are nothing more than street thugs in uniform.

18. Those police are vicious!

Body slams should be outlawed. The poor victim can't protect his head or face and terrible damage can be inflicted. All rough treatment should be prohibited once they're handcuffed.
